We booked based on excellent TripAdvisor reviews and were not disappointed. Room, cleanliness, attention to detail were all excellent. Chocolates on the pillow, wine tasting in the evening at the hotel bar and a great restaurant in the hotel. Well located with other bars and restaurants within walking distance, we also recommend leaving the car with the valet rather than trying to find parking around the hotel.

This was my first stay in this hotel. I want to make a special shout out to the front desk staff when I arrived. Laura and Jennifer were fantastic. They were very helpful, and quite personable. I'm staying for business and would recommend this place to all my business associates in the Virgin Islands.

The Lancaster is a true historic luxury hotel. The staff were attentive and friendly. The interior ambiance is circa early 1900s but modern mechanics. Lots of cool dark woods and brass fixtures. The Classic King room was a perfect size for a couple to unwind. The provided breakfast was full of tasty variety. What it lacks in amenities, it makes up with class and sophistication. If you want an upscale but laid back hotel in the heart of downtown Houston, The Lancaster is your place.

Nice hotel with really great rooms. Right in the center of Downtown Houston and it has plenty of charm. Staff are very helpful even if the breakfast set up is very strange. Held in upstairs meeting rooms rather than the brasserie.

I LOVE this hotel. I stayed there two nights ago and had a perfect room. Even though it was on a major downtown street, it was practically sound-proof and I had a gorgeous view of the skyline. The gracious staff helped me find a room that would suit my needs. The bed was particularly comfortable and luxurious. The shower was powerful and satisfying. The breakfast buffet was far better than most. I look forward to staying at this hotel next time I'm in Houston.

Had a great room near the top of the hotel. while the room and amenities were great the best part were the hotel employees. I particularly want to single out Lauren who checked us in. we used the valet parking which was very easy. Also used the hotel shuttle to go to dinner. Both very satisfactory.

The rooms are very nice, beds and linens very comfortable, with great amenities. The hotel employees are exceptional! Everyone we dealt with was friendly and were willing to take time to answer any questions we had. The hotel also offers a shuttle service to nearby theaters and sites.

Stayed in this hotel as a stopover before flying home the next day. Compared to other hotels we stayed in usa the service here was average (not sure if we just caught them on a bad day) However the actual hotel was finished to a good standard with lots of great interior touches which made it fell comfortable. We really loved the bed linen especially and decor in the rooms was my taste (being from the uk). overall a good stay.

Room was luxurious at reasonable price. Service was excellent and we received excellent care by all the personnel. The breakfast buffet was above average. The near location to all the cultural venues, the downtown tunnels, and convenient restaurants make it even more desirable. Also, the complimentary shuttle was used by us many times to get to Discovery Green, Minute Maid Park and restaurants.This hotel is unique, not cookie-cutter like the chains and family owned.

First of all, I very rarely give 5 stars for a hotel. It has to be absolutely perfect in order for me to do that. I will address the two issues I had then let you know how amazing this place is. The parking is valet only. Wish I would have known that. I book a fair amount of hotels and do it in advance so don't necessarily recall all the notes online. There was no signage about parking so we rounded the block a couple of times before calling. I also don't like the $30 valet charge. There... Read more
