They property is outdated , not clean at all. The decor has so much going on. It’s trying to give fancy and that’s not it at all. The pictures are not at all what the actually property has. It’s in a decent area that’s the only good part about it . They have no type of complimentary anything. The restaurant has few hours and limited menu items. Workers left ice in elevator and failed to clean it cause my friend to fall. Please don’t be fooled by the photos. Hotel Derek is not it !

Disliked: Cleanliness, property conditions & facilities
All the rooms were not ready to receive guest. I experienced being issued a room where the tub did not have a clean look. The bathroom had inadequate toilet paper. The air vent in the bathtub was broke. Water drainage in the bathtub tub was clogged and while showing water was also filling up inside the tub. No microwave in room. My stay was for 4days and room not cleaned untill 3rd day. Window curtains did not have a thick backing and the sheer curtains made me feel that people from outside could see in.
