Editorial review:

Lancaster Hotel is frequented by all types of people and is located in the middle of the theater district and is close to the courthouses. The rooms are a bit old, but they're cozy and interesting. The staff is incredible and the food is excellent. Some critics feel that it's becoming too dated and needs to be redone.

                It is within walking distance of the Houston Grand Opera and metro to the museum & theater district - a lovely boutique hotel!

                TV and phone system a bit antiquated but work. There is so much to do within walking distance of the hotel that this was not really important to us.

              • Single
                8.2

                The building was very charming and the staff very friendly. The location was great and very central to many sites in Houston.

                None.

              • Older travelers
                10.0

                The staff were professional and friendly. Rooms were clean and comfortable. The air conditioning unit was very quiet, not like other place I have stayed in. The location of the hotel was perfect for getting to the theater district and downtown area. Would recommend this hotel highly.

                Overall everything was excellent. Bathroom sink was showing signs of wear, but mainly around the cold water faucet.

              • Couple
                9.6

                The staff was extremely polite and courteous. The place has so much character. The gentleman out front got us a taxi within about 30 seconds of asking how to get one!

                The tv and stereo could use an upgrading (cassettes?). But who stays there to watch tv?

              • Older travelers
                10.0

                Everything about our stay was excellent. We chose it initially because of the location near the Hobby Performing Arts Center, but we enjoyed the hotel so much that we will stay there for other trips to Houston.

                N/A. The valet parking charge was a bit stiff, but I guess that's pretty standard in that location.

                The beauty of the hotel and friendliness of the staff.

              • Older travelers
                6.6

                Great location for theater. Resturant too pricey but delicious! Nice furnishings and second-day manager very helpful. Doormen, valets very helpful.

                Well, hotel wasn't really as luxurious as I expected. Room was very pretty but tiny...view of air conditioners. First-day manager at front desk really not helpful. I just didn't find it to be worth the money or the hype. My husband, who loves historic hotels, liked it very much. I'm not so impressed with the age of the place. After all, this is Texas. Nothing's *really* old!

              • Older travelers
                9.6

                We wanted a nice mid-town hotel at a reasonable price - the Lancaster exceeded our expectations on every front.

              • Older travelers

                excellent room, quiet even though in the city.

              • Single
                8.4

                I have stayed there many times. It is a lovely old hotel, and the food has improved. My friend and I really enjoyed our dinner. The reason for my trip was to attend a performance at a theater about 2 blocks from the hotel, so the location is perfect.

              • Group of friends
                10.0

                The location was great! Right in the center of everything. The staff was friendly and helpful. We were greeted with an optional glass of wine at check-in. The bed was extremely comfortable! Food was good and the atmosphere was cozy and quaint. Our shuttle driver was prompt, friendly, and courteous.

                Location for the business of the trip

                The room 207 I stay in was cold, no control on heat for comfort.

                Bed was comfortable, room 609 was quiet.

                Room needs updated. 24 hour room service.
