    Even better than expectedRoom was way nicer than I had anticipated from reviews I read. It was expensive, but it seems like all the hotels in Houston are expensive. For the price, this was a very beautiful, comfortable and clean hotel. We were so happy to stay here. Breakfast buffet was lovely. Staff were friendly. Room amenities were good and there was a snack bar on level 2 where we bought frozen meals since we arrived too late for a dinner at a restaurant. Only suggestion would be to include some healthier options in the snack bar, I would happily have paid for some fruit. Lovely, would recommend to anyone.

    Elegant small hotel in the theater district”

    Very nice hotel...elegant with a historical flavor. Very good inhouse restaurant.

    A nice surprise. But a couple of points to note. The bed was big, which made the room be small. Not a lot of room to move around, so desk is quite small. I would be happy there alone for several nights, but it might have felt cramped were I traveling with a partner. Also, the only hotel parking is by valet, which adds to the bill. Self-parking is in a public garage across the street. Not much of a problem, but be ready for it. The small, intimate reputation is quite good and has a good reputation among the locals, I learned.

    Character hotel in great downtown position”

    Sense of "old world" style and location

    I thoughly emjoyed my short (one night) stay at the Lancaster. As soon as you walk in you get a feel of the period charm that is throughout the whole hotel. The reception staff were friendly and granted a late check out with no fuss (or charge). My romm (705)was very spacious, clean and had everything you need. The bed was extremely comfortable. The furniture was not brand new, but this was in keeping with the overall feel of the hotel. If you are looking for somewhere with al the latest fittings and furniture - then this is not the hotel for you. If you are looking for a comfortable hotel with some character then you will enjoy your stay here.

    Great location but small rooms”

    Convenient for business; right at Downtown area

    The hotel is a bit old and dated; the facilities definitely need some updating and face-lifting. The room is a bit small and the layout is also a bit poor; e.g., a small dresser is located inside of the closet. However, the staff and service are good; shuttle was provided for the downtown area, and daily treats were provided. Unless you're there for business, there isn't much to do or around the downtown area after dark; it is just Houston, and can't blame the hotel.

    スタッフの対応が素晴らしい

    新しくはありませんが内装がとても素敵なホテルでした。 1階レストランで食べたコンチネンタル形式の朝食も美味しくいただきました。 近くにコンビニエンスストアやマーケットが少なく、少し離れたショップも9時で閉まりますので、飲み物などは早めに調達することをお薦めします。 アストロズの球場も近くMLBシーズンにまた来たいと思います。
