    Flawless Excellence

    One walks upon a gorgeous building, walks into the lobby greeted by smiling-welcoming faces…. Champagne, waters, candy…. That’s checkin, all under five minutes …. The staff all trained, experienced. The Owners have missed nothing, the artwork museum-quality…. Ridiculously abundant and high end…. Breakfast delicious, the rooms spacious, clean…. Brilliantly presented from start to finish…. I’ll be back

    The Lancaster and It’s Specialty

    The Lancaster was exactly what I was searching for. I describe it as a boutique hotel, which falls in line with my preference. Everything about the room, and dining on the mezzanine was clean and enjoyable. The Lancaster offers a quiet, quaint, and comfortable space for anyone to enjoy, whether it is for a cocktail, dinner, or a simple retreat. Highly recommend.

    Late arrival, gracious host

    Flight delayed by 3 hours to start so had to call the hotel and let them know I would be a late check in. They were understanding and check in was no problem upon arrival. I would absolutely choose this hotel in the future!
