All the staff at this hotel were incredibly hospitable and welcoming! Our suite was extremely comfortable and the bed is one of the best I can remember sleeping in. I wish I knew what sheets they used because they were so divine also! We stayed here for two nights and found the room was perfect with a king bed and...

The Lion's Den is a favorite among our guests. Open 24/7 with secure key access, it's the perfect spot for a decadent treat or healthy snack. Many thanks! Sincerely, Michelle M., Social Media Coordinator

The Lancaster Hotel is a fabulous place to stay. The accommodations were extremely well maintained and very classy. The entire hotel staff was first class and treated my wife and I like VIPs from the moment we arrived until the minute we left. This is a tremendous value and enjoyable place to stay. We will definitely return.

This is the oldest family owned hotel in Houston. Staff was very helpful in anything you need. My room was in the back of the hotel and I did not hear a thing from outside. The breakfast has a very good variety of items. They will shuttle you within a 3 mile range from the hotel. You also can call...

Every aspect of the hotel exceeded our expectations. Check in was quick and easy, and the room was amazing. I usually opt for cheaper chain hotels, but this one was affordable and close to all of the downtown attractions we were in Houston for. Will try to stay there every time I go back to Houston now. The continental breakfast...

I never write hotel reviews, but I was resolved to draft one for the Lancaster after we checked out. We visited the Lancaster because we were in town for a conference. From the moment we stepped in after a harried experience at the airport we were greeted with warmth and a relaxing atmosphere. Beautifully appointed rooms with very comfortable beds....

I go to Houston pretty frequently for business, and for the past year I have been staying at the Lancaster. The hotel itself is lovely. The rooms are nicely appointed with comfortable beds, nice sheets, and an assortment of pillows for different preferences. The restaurant is elegant and the food is good, etc. But what sets it apart is the...

The check in process was great and they fixed a problem I caused with entering the wrong day - quickly and with no problems. The ambiance is fascinating. The room was top notch!

We were only here for 1 night, but the hotel was very nice. Room was spacious and clean. We were able to walk into downtown Houston from here and there were some nice restaurants in walking distance. Use Uber or Lyft to get there from the airport or around town. Much cheaper than a taxi.

My wife and I spent a weekend at the Lancaster recently. The hotel has a great feel - from the moment you enter the lobby. The rooms are well-appointed and generous. The location is fantastic for exploring Houston and taking in a play, an opera, a ballet, or even a movie. Great experience!
