We made multiple visits to Houston this summer, and stayed at the Lancaster each time. Ongoing terrific service by Diana, Russell and the rest of the staff, including the valet staff. We are very appreciative of the courtesy and service.

My wife and I arrived in Houston long before check-in time and went in to ask if we could leave our luggage until check-in time allowing us time to explore Downtown. Not only did the staff securely store our luggage but, also had a room ready for us within an hour. We were able to see some of the many... More

If you're looking for a nice hotel with great proximity to many restaurants, the theater district and venues like the soccer stadium or MinuteMaid Park, The Lancaster is the place for you. Jones Hall is right across the street and there are many good restaurants within easy walking distance (no more than 3 blocks). The bonus is that The Lancaster... More

I almost don't want to write this review as I am afraid they may be booked from now on.. The reason why I chose the Lancaster was because it sits right next door to my companies headquarters. I called them to book for the week. Spoke to Dianna.(who was so awesome!) She even set up a driver to pick me... More

The Lancaster is in a great location in the heart of the theater district and an easy walk to take in an Astros game at Minute Maid Field. They also offer a free shuttle service to anywhere within a 3 mile radius of the hotel. Our room was large, beautifully furnished, and quiet. The daily breakfast buffet is expansive and... More

I stay in The Lancaster every trip to Houston (~every 2 weeks) because I don't think there is a better overall hotel in town. The staff is friendly and helpful, the rooms are large and nicely appropriated, the restaurant/bar has great food and ambiance, walking distance to many other restaurants/shows/events, they remember my preferences and do little things to make...

Beautiful hotel in the arts district. The staff is attentive and well trained. The beds and pillows very comfy, easy to relax with well appointed surroundings. All necessities are available and the restaurant had great food. My Mom ordered soup one night and it was promptly delivered on a gorgeous silver tray. A fax, copier, computer and work area is...

From the time you drive up to the front of the hotel - you are greeted by smiles and over the top service. The rooms are spacious and the beds are so very comfortable. This is the only place we will stay when in downtown Houston.
