This place gave off such a sophisticated yet genuinely friendly vibe. It was our first visit to Houston last weekend and staying at The Lancaster was a treat for me and my 13-year old son. Classy + Charming. That is what this beautiful hotel feels like with it’s rich history and stylish décor. Wonderful mix of traditional + contemporary styles.... More

I would highly recommend The Lancaster. The rooms are spacious and have nice accents throughout. Bathrooms are beautiful and very clean. Internet was fast for a hotel, and it came free. Staff couldn't be any better; everyone was incredibly kind, warm, and courteous. Breakfast buffet is superb. I had an expensive rate after tax, but I booked kind of late... More

Boutique hotel in a decent location for exploring Houston - close to the bus stops for the Space Centre and Airport, walk to the baseball stadium etc. Staff are fabulous - they go out of their way to make sure you have a good stay. Had a 1 bedroom suite, lovely rooms, comfy beds and pillows. We were travelling with... More

I picked The Lancaster Hotel from the internet. I look for faults in service, food, & anything else that deals with people. I Found No Faults WithThis Place. From the doorman, waitress, host, front desk, everybody I had contact with, all was very nice & friendly. They actually cared. The dinner was the best too. Don't Miss This Place.

Was looking for a nice, quiet hotel for my stay in Houston and I came across the Lancaster. The room was spacious, impeccably clean and well equipped. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful. The included breakfast was a nice extra also. I would highly recommend this hotel for anyone looking for a place to stay in downtown Houston.

We had booked a room at the Lancaster for our honeymoon and were absolutely delighted with everything about the experience. At check-in, Michael and Diana had graciously upgraded our room to a top floor suite. They were so friendly and made us feel right at home. Bottle of champagne was iced down and waiting for us as we entered the... More

Was looking for a center city hotel which would not break the bank. Came across the Lancaster on Trip Advisor. Rooms are small, but well appointed. But, that is not the reason to consider this place. The staff and service is outstanding. You do not have to lift a finger in this place. They are always looking to serve their... More

I work for a price conscious company so I bid on this hotel through priceline. What a nice little gem in the city. The room was small but comfortable and impeccably clean. The staff was accommodating and nice and the included breakfast was a nice surprise. I would highly recommend this hotel for business travelers or a couples get away.
