The service, was both warm and professional. From the valet, to the front desk clerk, the restaurant staff and the bartender. Well done. The bed was extremely comfortable including the silky sheets and nice pillows. The climate control worked nicely and was quiet. The robes were thick, soft and cozy. I appreciated that they gave us two free bottles of water, free in room coffee and mints on our pillow. The small touches really make a difference, when many other hotels cut corners. I would definitely stay there again and recommend The Lancaster to others.
There is nothing that I can think of
Welcoming staff. Nicely appointed rooms; very comfortable beds with lovely fresh linens. Bar and restaurant service was excellent. Shuttle service to Amtrak station. Would highly recommend to those who prefer a more traditional-style hotel as compared with the big 'chain' hotels.
no minibar. no late night room service.
The bedroom was very nice and spacious, with a big comfy bed and a lovely clean, new bathroom. The windows had a second glazing so there was no street noise.
Breakfast was ok, there was choice on cereals, fruit, toast and some cooked breakfast, but we expected a bit more. There wasn't a fitness suite or pool. The valet parking was a bit expensive.
The location was good for business people. It was also within walking distance of theatres, restaurants and the historic district.
The hotel staff were not particularly friendly or helpful. They were not knowledgeable about what was available for tourists to do in Houston. They told us there were no tours to the Space Centre and we then found a brochure in reception advertising a tour. The restaurant staff were also offhand. The breakfast was very average and dishes were not replaced. We were not tempted to have dinner there.
nice comfy rooms, soft beds, good breakfast
reservation mix up
Location was great and was near several restaurants (within walking distance). The hotel itself had a lot of character. My room was a little small, but it was very clean and modern. I will be inclined to stay here again next time I'm in Houston.
That the lion den was over rated!
Lovely hotel, small but big on amenities such as beautiful and large rooms, super comfortable beds,great bathroom shower and tasteful decor. exceptional staff; helpful and genuinely fun .the car service was such a plus and close to the metra line.Breakfast included and cafe staff were super. Historical place ( loved the murals and the history books in the lounge)
no health club onsite . ( but access to one across the street)
construction early in the morning
Loved the location and the friendly staff. Able to walk to the Houston shopping Centre and parks as well as the river. Plenty of restaurants available within 5 minute walk. Hotel shuttle service a bonus to get us to the Amtrak station.
Location Concierge and shuttle service Staff
Room size a bit small. Queen size bed would have been better than King for one person.
Beautiful historic hotel with an amazing feeling and decor. The staff were very friendly, great sightseeing tips and advice. The rooms were lovely, spacious and clean. Breakfast was excellent!
The room was perfect. Exactly what I expected. The restaurant had the best crabcakes. The bar staff A+.
The complementary breakfast was average, but It did same me money.
The luxury. It was exquisite! The staff: personable and extremely willing to please. The food: oh my! The food!! Our soft snuggly robes: need i say more. The sleep: deep and reguvinating. Our vacation memories: priceless.
I would have liked to have seen more ...hmmm... Perhaps some less... Nope. I got nothing. It was great! No complaint .
Loved the corner room we had. All the staff was very friendly. The hotel is located very close to the Arts District so walking to a venue and back at night is easy and relatively safe, no need to get a cab. Had a great visit
Staff were courteous and helpful. Interior was very nice. Beds and pillows were soft and perfect. Enjoyed our stay very much.
the history of the building the wonder and interesting Internatioal Staff the Bed and Bedding the location
the dining area for b-fast was too crowded ... the b-fast was adequate no a big deal
I loved the room and the hotel, the whole place was gorgeous.
The wifi had really low signal in our room.
Very comfortable room Helpful and informed staff Breakfast buffet
Concert was audible until 10 pm
The Bistro was great with an award winning chef ! From Diane at the front desk, doormen, wait staff, bartender and housekeeping all were wonderful, friendly and very helpful. The beds are so comfy too!!! If you are going to stay there for Jones Hall or other near by performances, be sure and make a reservation for dinner!
Nothing to not like except maybe not putting Bistro hours on the posted menu.
Central location in downtown Houston; unique elegance -- not a cookie- cutter chain; interesting artwork in small, European-style lobby; supremely comfortable bed; cozy and quiet even though located on busy street. Best of all: friendly, helpful, welcoming staff.
Random hairs on bathroom floor and in shower upon arrival; housekeeping did not replenish bath linens
Right in the center of Houston, close to all business addresses and downtown restaurants
Too expensive for what you get
Right in the center of the action in downtown Houston. Parking attendants always had our car ready timely. Staff very helpful in getting needed information
Concert across street sounded like it was in our room
