Fodor's Review

In the heart of the Theater District, this small luxury hotel has the feel of a European manor house. The Chippendale furniture, plaid upholstered chairs, oil landscapes and portraits, and brass cachepots contrast with the steel-and-glass surroundings. Power breakfasters crowd Bistro Lancaster, and the hotel's wine bar is both highly rated and highly popular.

Great Downtown location, superb service

The quaint and quiet Lancaster is located right downtown, so it is perfect for a theater stay or business trip. I was pleasantly surprised to find this European style hotel in Houston. The service was friendly and helpful. I would love to stay here again!
