HOUSTON, Feb. 11, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Hotel Derek, A Destination Hotel, is seeing Texas-sized stars – four stars, to be exact. The Houston Galleria area's signature modern boutique hotel received a Four Star rating from Forbes Travel Guide in its list of 2015 Star Rated Hotels, Restaurants and Spas, an industry standard rating system. It's the second consecutive Four Star rating for Hotel Derek, which became part of Destination Hotels' family of independent properties in 2012 and was transformed with a multimillion-dollar renovation in 2013.
"Receiving Forbes Four Star Status for the second year in a row is a huge honor – and frankly, it's what we expect of ourselves," said Nick Bilotta, Hotel Derek's hotel manager. "Our inclusion last year meant that all of our hard work to redefine, reposition and reintroduce Hotel Derek was working. To get this honor a second time means we have succeeded in consistently providing our guests a top-of-the-line hotel experience. We're in the greatest city in the greatest state in America. This what our customers deserve."
