The Lancaster Hotel ★★★★

Anniversary visit

Would recommend Fri, Jun 4, 2010
Arrived earlier than 3PM did not have to wait to go to the room. Fresh flowers and chocolate were in the room. Towels were very soft. Bed was comfortable. Dining room staff were attentive and helpful in suggesting food. Dining room also had fresh flowers on every table. Food was good and price was reasonable. Had a great time. 10 block walk to Minute Maid Park was not bad.

Did not like at all!

Would not recommend Mon, May 17, 2010
Thought it was a great location and a good price. When entering the lobby it felt like a haunted hotel. Every thing seemed so old and out dated. The elevators had wooden panels. The bathroom tub had mold in the crack, but the bathroom was all marble. The TV was about 16" tube and you could not view it from the bed because the stand would not turn. This was not worth the money.

Our night at the Lancaster

Would recommend Mon, Mar 8, 2010
We came to Houston to attend a play at the Alley Theatre followed by a concert at Jones Hall. The location is ideal, across the street from both the Alley and Jones. Also, the Wortham Theater is just a block away. The food at the restaurant was pretty good but the prices were fairly high - not outrageous, but high. The closet was just large enough and the room was spotless. The room was fairly small, in fact there were not two comfortable chairs available for watching TV. We had one easy chair and picked up the desk chair and jammed it between the bed and the wall for the use of the second TV watcher.

Dining

Several restaurants are located in Bayou Place, just a block away from the Lancaster

Very Disappointed

Would not recommend Sat, Jan 2, 2010
When I made my reservation to stay at this hotel from 12/29/2009 to 1/2/2010 I was not aware that the televisions in the rooms are at best a 19 inch and at least "15 years old" and still has "VCR in the rooms". NO DVD players, Flat Screen LCD TV or anyway to hook up a iPod/MP3 Player. There are no liquor cabinets in the rooms too. The mattress they use are very standard, NO pillow tops. There was not cover on the box spring, and what made it worse was there was a big stain up by head of the bed near the corner and it could be seen very easily. These bed frames are raised, to set higher off the floor, so it would be easy for the hotel to use a mattress that does not use a box spring. Also, these was a small cheap Sony CD player in the room, when I opened it there was a left in it from someone else, and another set of CD's to the side of it that had some kind of mold growing on them. When I spoke with the staff and a few of the guests about the TV's, they say that it has been like this for a long time. The bathrooms use low flow toilets which is good, but the bathrooms have NO fans in them. The showers are very narrow so if you are a larger person, you may not like them. I have stayed in many nice hotels, and this one should Not be considered a 4 star at all.

Attractions

Great Museums. No downtown malls, only Macy's. Do your research first, for clubs, dining.

Lovely!

Would recommend Wed, Nov 18, 2009
Hotel was lovely, location perfect for walking, got a sense of downtown and its history. We were very glad we had lunch as well.

Attractions

Just walk! The riverfront walkway was a nice break from the busy downtown but you still had skyscraper views.

Nice location,decent room,great price

Would recommend Mon, Jul 13, 2009
Nice room, but you can tell that they've cut back on some services due to the economy. No morning paper delivered to your room, and the concierge only available one day a week. A decent restaurant in the lobby, and the free limo service was nice. Free internet, but the PC in the lobby had trouble printing my boarding pass (it had a virus).

Money saver

Free limo service downtown (a $2 tip instead of a $8 cab ride).

Great Experience

Would recommend Mon, May 26, 2008
This hotel is very comfortable. The staff goes all out for guests. The value was great. Will definitely stay there again.

Nightlife hint

If you enjoy entertainment, downtown area is great. The hotel is right across the street to may events as well as theaters.
