Elegant hotel
Reviewed 8 hours ago

My husband and I stayed overnight in this elegant hotel after an evening at the symphony at Jones Hall. We had stayed at the Lancaster before but had not been since back since the renovation and redesign. It was charming before, but it's stunning now! It's fresh and contemporary yet maintains its regency influence. Love the artwork throughout the hotel! As an anniversary surprise, the staff placed an iced bottle of champagne and flutes, fresh strawberries and chocolate mints on the coffee table for our arrival! What a treat! The amenities are so elegant and thoughtful. There is an end table with a drawer of complimentary snacks and a refrigerated drawer of cold beverages. The coffee maker was excellent as well. When you arrive, all you need to do is sit back and relax. We made reservations for the restaurant, Cultivated F+B, and the food was excellent! I probably had one of the best night's sleep on the hotel's ultra comfortable mattress and cloud-like pillows! Heaven! The marble shower, thick, soft towels and Bulgari toiletries rounded out the entire experience. I can't say enough wonderful things about the attentive staff! Thank you, Lancaster for a beautiful stay!

Night on the Town in Houston

This is the best hotel in Houston if you have tickets to the symphony across the street. The rooms were very clean and the bed quite comfy. The staff made me feel welcomed and I especially enjoyed the free glass of Champaign upon arrival. I will definitely stay again and this time make reservations for dining in their restaurant.

First Class all the way...

The Lancaster is like no other. It's like walking into another time when hotels really cared about the guest experience...and the Lancaster does. Everything about it is lovely...the lobby, the rooms, the staff, the complimentary glass of Rose at check-in, the attention to every little detail. It's worth every penny to feel transported. My only recommendation is that they stock their delicious complimentary breakfast better. It's really good and guests really go in on it. I didn't get much and wish I had but it's not enough of a problem to lower my rating. Please keep this hotel lovely. It's a real jewel.

My husband and I visited the Lancaster March 15 - 18 for my birthday celebration . From the moment we were greeted at reception until check-out, the service in all areas was impeccable. Great southern hospitality with quality service at every turn. We will definitely return!

Best hotel stay we've ever had!

We loved every second of our stay at The Lancaster. The hotel is so charming, clean, and comfortable but the service of the staff and attention to detail is what made our stay outstanding. Everything exceeded our expectations. We utilized the shuttle to go to dinner which was so nice. The breakfast was unbelievably good. Everything was just perfect, I could go on and on. We will definitely be staying here again next time we visit Houston.
