2/10 Poor

It was not worth the price, breakfast was so horrible, food was greasy and no waffles. Beds were so hard. Outside looks great but in the room wasn’t worth it. Room service and free snacks was great.

Lovely Hotel and great location for a show
3rd time I’ve stayed here and check in is always nice. They offer you a nice glass of champagne or bottled water. This is such a beautiful boutique “ish” hotel. The rooms are great. This is the first time I’ve had the smaller room but still beautiful and us wonderful amenities such as Blvgari soaps/lotions. Nespresso coffee and a fridge full of cold drinks and drawer full of snacks! The linens are too notch. Breakfast is a nice buffet style.

6/10 Good

Stayed for 2 nights. Housekeeping never cleaned room. We left the light on indicating we wanted room cleaned and even called the front desk at 2pm to clean. Arrived back at 10pm and room was never cleaned, beds never made etc. Even the most basic hotel would be expected to clean the rooms. Thats a bare minimum. Notified front desk room was never cleaned and they said they would “make note of that.” They offered to have it cleaned at 10pm when we returned but of course we were not going to wait for that at that hour. Really puzzled why Hotel would think this would be ok. Extremely disappointed and basically ruined last night there.

Wonderful Weekend Getaway
We loved our stay at the Lancaster. Very friendly and helpful staff. We didn't get turndown service either night we were there, nor was the mini bar refreshed daily as advertised. Other than that, it was a top quality stay. Thank you.
