A couple there for a three day weekend during the Houston Marathon. Great service, friendly, old school ....in a good way! Breakfast was better than expected. Lobby very nice place to relax. If you enjoy a BIG ROOM search elsewhere. The room was very well appointed and worked great for us.

I have stayed at the Lancaster several times for business. The location is incredibly convenient and the staff has always been friendly and helpful. The renovations have turned a quaint old hotel into a much more appealing place to stay. The shuttle is a fantastic perk for out-of-town guests who do not want to rent a car for a brief... More

My wife and I celebrated our anniversary in Houston yesterday. The Lancaster exceeded all our expectations. The staff is friendly and helpful. The decor is tasteful and comfortable. The room furnishing were very luxurious; down pillows, fine linens, and excellent toiletries. Highly recommend.

The Lancaster is so nice and has wonderful ambiance. It feels like you have stepped back into the 1940's. The bedding is really comfortable, the shower is nice, and you can hang out downtown without worrying about your car.

We booked the Lancaster Hotel in Houston for a weekend wedding, and to our amazement it was awesome from the moment we stepped foot in the door. We were met by some valet guys that quickly got our luggage out and showed us to the door. We then were met by Russell who was so welcoming and such a hoot!... More

If staying in downtown Houston, The Lancaster is the place to be! We were fortunate enough to have Russell register us, and from that moment on, he made us feel part of their Lancaster family! Russell is an exceptional employee who takes an interest in his guests!!! Our room was extremely comfortable and obviously well cared for by the hotel... More

Directly across the street is some lovely restaurants. Looked like a sushi place, Hard rock cafe and a couple others places. The hotel is a historical hotel,... More
