Score from 75 reviews Very good 8.5/10
The hotel is attractively refurbished, the welcome was warm, the breakfast, especially the muesli, outstanding, Rose and David in the restaurant were wonderful, and the room was very good and comfortable.
Personally I like a bath, but the shower was a good one. The location is excellent in that it is in the theatre district and a short walk from downtown. Houston is a business city though, and possibly not the best choice for a stopover visit without a car. Not the hotel's fault - it's a great place with great staff.
The friendly staff and outstanding accommodations.
Such personal attention
Location, quality, service, atmosphere...
Great location for the arts district.
location lack of open facilities
Very clean, modern and great staff. Room was very clean, great location.
Rooms are small. For one is great, but I think for a family would be small.
All staff were very accommodating and friendly. Room was super nice and spacious.
Could not regulate water temp in shower.
The moment we arrived it was great, the entry smelled wonderful, the staff was so nice, we were in and out a lot, every time we were greeted, ask about our day, we had a late dinner Friday night, oh my! Must have the stuffed figs and the crab cakes, amazing, we will come back.
The staff was great as was the experience at the Lancaster Hotel!
Beautifully furnished and comfortable accomodations, friendly and welcoming staff, outstanding overall value
can't think of a single thing
We love the ambiance of this quaint hotel..our #1 hotel in Houston! We really enjoyed visiting with Jeff (bartender) he's a keeper!!!!! Customers for life!!
Limited brfst options
It's a great location in downtown Houston where there are nice restaurants and cafe's in walking distance. (Unfortunately, downtown Houston is dead in the evenings but that's another story). The rooms look good and are comfortable. The receptionist (Russell) is super friendly and helpful.
The first room I got was tiny and looking directly onto another building. When I asked the hotel if they could change it, they did so straight away and put me in a much nicer room.

I like the newly renovated lobby and the front desk area. Although you have to buy snacks or beverages from the pantry on the 2nd floor, I like the selections the hotel has to offer. I highly recommend the Lancaster to anyone.
I wish I had mentioned the room with a tub when I booked. Also, I wish that the hotel staff were a bit more knowledgeble about public transportation of Houston. For example, there is no light rail service on Sundays but I had to find out I actually got to the station on my way to Natural Science Museum. Would have saved a few hours on the trip had I known for that fact. Other than that, I really enjoyed the stay.
Very plush hotel location great for theater district.
Coffee not very warm at brekkie and $30 to park the car on top of a quite expensive hotel.
Friendly helpful staff. Shuttle service at one's beck and call. Superb breakfast and presentation. Easily accessible to interesting sites.
everyone was very helpful-Ryan helped us alot
we called for pick-up at 11pm but was not told it ended at 11-would of been nice if times were posted
The room was a good size for an older hotel
The staff was outstandingly helpful and friendly. The trip included my mother's 86th birthday and they brought her card and wonderful cheese and fruit plate. The location to the venue was very close and we were able to walk to the Bayou center. The valet was wonderful and patient. great breakfast and wine in evening.
There was only one elevator working.
The new interiors were well coordinated and there is comfortable seating in all the public areas. Also extremely clean and well maintained.
There was always a line to check in and out.
Everything was great! I had just immigrated to the US so it was great to have really nice staff greet me throughout my stay; starting with the very nice driver who picked me up at the airport and waited an hour for me to clear immigration (with no complaining or update on why I was late....just patiently waited)! I had the best sleep as the beds were large and super comfy. Loved the decor of the entire hotel. I recommend the Chilean Sea Bass for dinner; was amazing! I called to the front desk to get a bellhops assistance with pay bag and when I got down to checkout, they'd already taken care of everything so I just gave them the room key card and picked up my receipt. Super quick and efficient.
The Lancaster is such a lovely old hotel, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The location was great, the accommodations were perfect, and we will definitely stay there again.
