Great Stay

The Lancaster Hotel, Houston
My new Houston Go-To Hotel!!!
As a road warrior that travels 70% of the year, and only stay at 4 star (and above) hotels across the world, the Lancaster definitely makes it to my list of favorites. By far, the BEST hotel I have stayed at while being in Houston. Just a few reasons from a long list: 1- ABSOLUTELY amazing staff. From the front desk to house keeping, you are constantly treated as royalty. 2- extremely elegantly furnished and very well appointed rooms. An in-room nespresso machine (nice change from the typical k-cups), a very well stocked snacks/soda/water bar (ALL COMPLIMENTARY), and a big screen that is truly BIG. 3 - One of the BEST breakfast buffets I've had in a very long time (smoked salmon lovers will not be disappointed)..and yes..a standard inclusion as part of the COMPLIMENTARY offerings to all guests (no matter what room type you book). The Lancaster is by far my new Houston go-to hotel. I highly reccomend it to anyone looking for a royal hotel experience that will not disappoint. Truly reminiscent of the royal hotel experience that has become a rarity..but at a fraction of the cost :-)
