Shawn Gracey

General Manager

You might wonder about the designer cow-printed robe hanging in your closet at Hotel Derek or muse over the three-story parking-garage-turned-movie-wall overlooking the hotel’s revamped pool area. Wonder no more; the answer is Shawn Gracey. He’s not only the hotel’s general manager but also the property’s biggest enthusiast and out-of-the-box thinker. With a heart for hospitality and an eye for style, Gracey has seen the hotel through an extensive multimillion-dollar renovation of the guest rooms and lobby, and completely overhauled the service atmosphere, creating a fun, hip and modern vibe to the Galleria area’s only boutique hotel.
