Our stay with the Lancaster was superb. Would definitely stay again, everything about the stay from the check in to our meal was spot on. Russel was fantastic and represented the hotel very well. Really appreciated the little touches, strawberries and champagne in our room went down a treat.

Exemplary. Easy valet. Greeted with flutes of bubbles during check-in. Beautiful property, really enjoyed the art. Room was perfect (bed comfy, clean as a whistle, free snacks/bevs), delightful wait staff in bar, tea room and restaurant, prompt check-out and quick valet retrieval. Just top-notch from start to finish. Location is surrounded by theater district and a couple blocks from the vibrant Main Street.

Impeccable service
Had a wonderful stay in this beautiful hotel. From the moment I arrived I was made to feel like a VIP! I have stayed in many 5 star hotels around the world and the service I received from every member of the staff was the best I have ever experienced! Another lovely touch was the complimentary mini bar and snacks! I would definitely rectangles stay at the Lancaster hotel if visiting Houston. I only wish my stay was longer!

Simple Elegance with classical charm
My wife and I had a quick visit into Houston with a late check in. The valet greeted us with prompt friendly service and the gentleman checking us in was friendly, professional and shared a bit of the hotel history He was excellent! The rooms have been renovated with a simply elegance that we found accommodating, fresh and comfortable. We regret that we did not have the opportunity to visit the fabulous new restaurant and bar! We will definitely book The Lancaster for our next visit this month!
