The staff in this hotel are very friendly . Arriving at 11pm met the most helpful night porters ever ! Breakfast staff also very efficient and helpful. Rooms are a bit faded no fridge though bed comfy. Breakfast selection good including Thai food . Views overlooking Hyde park make the dining room special. Sunday late breakfast quiet. Very hot throughout... More

We have been staying at the Lancaster for 6 years. Our first visit was for convenience, visiting the Alley Theatre. Since our first stay, we determined there was no need to try another property. The Lancaster is first class from the moment you step under the awning to enter. You are greeted with a "welcome back", doors are opened, luggage... More

We like staying in classic hotels and this one is even owned by the original family. It shows! Staff was very welcoming on arrival and offered suggestions when asked on where to eat and where to visit. They offer a free shuttle to places within 3 miles and a nearby trolley is available to many other places of interest so... More

For Christmas our children gave my wife and me tickets to a Sunday evening concert at Jones Hall in downtown Houston. The Houston Symphony concert featured the music of John Williams, including music from Star Wars. I suggested spending the night at The Lancaster, right across the street from Jones Hall. The Lancaster has long been one of my favorite... More

I have stayed at The Lancaster Hotel many times and find the rooms comfortable and well accommodated. The staff is friendly and extremely helpful. It is located within a block of the Wortham Center where I attend the opera.

My wife and I stayed here while visiting Houston. We enjoyed the historic feel. You could sense what the hotel was like years ago. It was in the theater district and an easy walk to all over downtown. The city is a great walking city. Stay off the crazy interstates surrounding the city.
