Located just 7 miles from OTC’s event headquarters at NRG Park, Hotel Derek is the ideal basecamp for blending groundbreaking environmental and technological innovations with Houston’s best sights, sounds, and flavors.

The Evenings After OTC
“In the know” is a way of life at Hotel Derek. With Houston’s most exciting attractions at your fingertips, you’ll have to beat the clock to fit in all the experiences at your fingertips. When the conference closes, start your lively Houston night at Tap & Pour, our trendy Texas hotspot that serves up more than 20 rotating, Texan-brewed craft beers.
Whether heading out or staying in, our central location in Houston’s popular Galleria Area makes it easy to take advantage of your post-OTC evenings. Choose from over 400 signature shops and mouth-watering eateries at the Houston Galleria Mall, shop, dine, and socialize at the open air River Oaks District, eat and mingle at the upscale Highland Village, or choose from any number of area attractions, from comedy shows, to a night at the ballet, to a tour of NASA’s Johnson Space Center.
There’s something for everyone in Houston, and our team at Hotel Derek is dedicated to helping you find whatever attraction best suits the conference experience you’ve been dreaming about. From evenings at the Galleria to a night out at the ball game, our connected concierge team can help you discover Houston your way.
