New Years Get Away
Russell was awesome. The location is perfect for downtown Houston events. The hotel was recently remodeled and it is beautiful. Elevators require a room key so no sketchy people wandering around. Very safe. Breakfast had great choices. We were on the Penthouse floor and there was no street noise.

Charming Hotel
The people at the newly reopened hotel were welcoming and friendly from the doorman on. The hotel still has somewhat small rooms, but they are quaint, quiet and comfortable. The renovating hotel still has the charm of the old hotel. It is just across the street from the Alley Theatre, which is very convenient. I love this place. Highly recommend.
Robert, us1 night romance trip
The Lancaster Hotel, Houston
This is the best hotel! Beautiful, stylish, comfortable, great amenities, etc. But, most importantly, the staff is #1, top-rated, better than the most expensive hotel experiences I have had. They cater to your every need with a positive, can-do attitude and a smile. Your urgent need becomes their urgent need & they move swiftly to take care of it. I can't say enough about the hotel or its staff. Stay there! Always!
