I recently got married in Houston, and I set up a room block at The Lancaster for my out of town guests. The front desk service was extremely accommodating and friendly, and they allowed me to tour the hotel before reserving the block of rooms. The restaurant was the perfect place for friends and family to gather for breakfast before... More

This is the best hotel I have stayed at in Houston. I have stayed at The Four Seasons before, which was very good, but having discovered this recently renovated/remodeled, historic boutique hotel, it (The Lancaster) will be my first hotel choice in Houston for future visits! Rooms are large, clean, comfortable, well furnished and bright! The Lion's Den and the... More

I was in town for business and spent 3 nights at the Lancaster last week. Great hotel, hands down. Staff was very attentive, room was well designed and clean. I highly recommend it for a quick business trip, or a family vacation.

We live about an hour south of Houston and wanted somewhere close, but special for celebrating our 3rd anniversary. My husband chose the Lancaster and we had a superb experience! They made the night special.

Hotel was lovely. Bedding was wonderful. Barring some music we were hearing from a bar nearby, I slept like a baby. Shower water was the highest pressure water I've ever seen in any hotel. Mints on bed when we walked in - everything wonderful. Only complaint was the two folks we dealt with at the front desk. The lady at... More
