Everything about this hotel is fantastic. Comfiest bed ever, excellent location downtown, really thoughtful touches (pick your own morning newspaper, free shuttle within 3 miles) extremely kind and helpful staff. Absolutely worth the price.

My boyfriend and I really enjoyed our stay at The Lancaster. We're already planning our next visit. We reserved the Classic King room on the 4th floor. The room was perfect! We had a great view of Jones Hall and the size of the room was perfect for a cozy romantic evening for a couple. We attended a show at...

We chose The Lancaster based on its proximity to the Wortham AND the excellent reviews on Trip Advisor. We were not disappointed. The Lancaster feels like a boutique hotel that you'd find in NYC. Our corner suite was very comfortable -- entry hall, sitting room with seating for three or four, desk, mini fridge and flat screen TV. The bedroom...

This was by far the best hotel experience I have had. EVER. PERIOD. The only time I thought I could get upset was when I could not drive myself to the parking lot. But once I found out that valet was included with your stay and the fact that they have rockstars for staff, it took away any worry that...

My previous visits to the Lancaster were in the 90's. At the time, it was showing its age. Now, thanks to a multi-million dollar make-over, this downtown Houston hotel institution has been restored to Grande Dame splendor. The paint sparkles on the wood soffits, the brass fixtures glisten and the FREE Fiji bottles of water at the bedside make one...

Best night's sleep, fabulous suite, incredible breakfast, amazing service. And when I called today to find out the type of bed we had, Laura Fowler was most kind and informative. We cannot wait to go back for our anniversary.

Staying at the Lancaster Hotel was a wonderful experience! We stayed in the King Deluxe suite for two days. We will definitely stay at the Lancaster in the future. Their exceptional customer service, restaurant, and decor was appreciated. We did not have any complaints.

Yall...I'm not kidding when I say that The Lancaster Hotel is the best hotel in which I've ever stayed. I booked a surprise weekend getaway for my husband and me having never been to this hotel and I am so happy I chose them. Being a surprise weekend, I was a total maniac and showed up at the hotel with...

This is a beautiful hotel located among the theatre district of Houston. Upon arrival my wife and I were greeted with smiles. Everyone there was very friendly and welcoming. The room we stayed in although small, was very comfortable and well laid out. The bed was very comfortable and the cleanliness was superb. The complimentary breakfast was unexpected but certainly...
