everything is perfect in this hotel.
no bad experience
The Bartender was very nice and the waitress for dinner and breakfast
Theater District and near great restaurants. Hotel also provided a shuttle,
No mention that there is no free parking. If arriving late valet service only but valet not at station when we arrived. Beautiful brass all over but it is not polished!!!
Location, bed and breakfast
Had to wait nearly an hour at airport for pre-booked hotel transfer.
We were met at every turn with great service and spectacular people
I reserved a 4 people room - but the 4 people room just fit 2!!!!
WIFI didn't work , I haven't complained since it wasn't a big deal to me , plus their technician was working on it when we arrived
Everything was perfect.
Everyone of the staff members provided exceptional service. They were polite, professional and friendly.
Rooms updated but still retained charm
They give you a glass of champagne upon arrival! The car service around town was great!
Loved my stay!
Very tight quarter for mobility equipment to enter elevator and move around dinning area.
I thought was closer to House of Blues where I had a teenager!!
Everything! Valet service, Michael at the front desk, house keeping in the hall!! Great stay.
The final bill was correct but not easy to interpret.
Friendly and helpful staff. My wife and I never waited for anything. The staff had answers for any and all of our questions. Valet service was easy and timely. The best was the fact that the room was quiet and peaceful even though our corner room was perched just a few floors above the Texas and Louisiana street intersection. We enjoyed a dinner and a breakfast in the restaurant. Overall, our experience could not have been better.
Room standard, great food in the bistro
The parking was too expensive and it did not feel safe walking around. I was approached four times within an hour by panhandlers. It was a weeknight so the Bayou Plaza and the theater district was asleep.
I liked the facility and the staff was very accommodating.
It was a wonderful hotel in a great location. The staff was great and the facilities were exceptional.
This is just personal preference but I felt the bed was bit too soft.
I really appreciated the entire staff, prompt, friendly and courteous.
Fresh remodel but stayed in touch with the historic aspects of this hotel.
The hotel has valet parking, however it is not an option as the hotel does not have any dedicated parking. You can opt to park somewhere else (street/metered parking or in a nearby pay garage). Or go with the valet parking which is 14.95 per day. It is convenient however the lot is gated from about 8 PM to 9 AM so your car must be in the lot by then and you cannot acces it until morning.
The hotel and room were very clean, newly renovated and nicely decorated. The location is downtown and within walking distance to restaurants, etc.
The history of the hotel, located in the heart of Houston, complimentary breakfast buffet, Starbucks coffee in the room and complimentary shuttle service in the downtown area.
Room was tiny...one chair at desk, not comfortable and no where to sit but on bed. Bathroom even smaller with no place for your cosmetics etc. and commode so close to shower not even safe. Not recommended for Booking customers is this room is what they deliver.
The valet staff was incredible...so helpful, providing shuttle to the musical event and picking us up promptly after. Akeem was outstanding!
My room was tiny! I found a dirty towel in the pocket of the robe! Yuck
I loved the staff and the shuttle that took you any where within 3 miles! The aroma in the hotel was very pleasant. The breakfast was very filling and tasty. I was offered a glass of champagne at check in which was awesome!
Everything was great.
I have been a guest of the Lancaster many times over the years, but this was my first stay post-renovation. They've done an excellent job bringing the place into the 21st century without disturbing its historic charm. The staff was great, particularly the girl who worked the front desk during the day (Angela?). She was very helpful. And Jeff the bartender is my new best friend in Houston!
I had to leave.
The easiness the staff made everything, from checking in, dinning, to directions.
