My wife and I came into town for the Symphony. Stayed in room 907. Wonderful view, very quiet. We will ask for this room from now on. Everyone in the hotel was so helpful. City was imploding a building close by on Sunday morning so no one could leave the hotel. The guys working the door were terrific. They worked... More

My husband and I stayed here for just one night to go to a wedding downtown and were really pleased. The rooms are recently updated and look great and the bed was very comfortable. We were only disappointed with a few things. The huge and very well stocked mini-bar/pantry area was lacking a sewing kit which we desperately needed (one... More

Everything seemed new curtains fixtures carpeting very nicely appointed. Parking was an extra $20 for overnight. Total stay about $200. Gym is around the corner at private club. Breakfast was delicious. Microwave is only available on the second floor common area

Wonderful boutique hotel with super friendly staff! Nicely updated in early 1900's style. Classy little place. We were lucky enough to receive an upgrade to a suite for no apparent reason! Had a separate bedroom, huge dining table (no kitchenette though) and adjoining living area. Furnishings well maintained and comfy. The king bed was comfortable and the AC kept us... More

My husband and I live an hour north of downtown Houston. Whenever we have the opportunity to attend special events downtown, the first contact we make is The Lancaster Hotel. We have stayed there numerous times in past years and the service and accommodations have consistently been superior. As we enjoy the performing arts, the hotel’s location amidst Jones Hall,... More

My fiancé and I stayed at the Lancaster a few weeks ago for a weekend-night staycation and it was Perfect! We picked the hotel based on its proximity to Jones Hall, where we had plans for the evening, and were blown away by the service and the guest rooms. The bistro was also a treat. We had not planned to... More

The Lancaster Hotel is a prime location for a night out on the Theater District. As you mentioned, we are across the street from Jones Hall, making it very convenient to attend concerts and events. We hope you come back for another "staycation." Sincerely, Michelle M., Sales Mgr. More

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
