Traveled with family
Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
Hotel Derek is by far the worst hotel I have ever visited. Upon arrival I was greeted with a ton of hidden charges after having to walk around the entire building to get inside. Only one elevator worked the entire time so there was always a line. The food and drinks in the restaurant are extremely overpriced and the staff throughout the whole hotel is rude and unprofessional. I cannot stress this enough, GO SOMEWHERE ELSE!
