The Lancaster is a "character" hotel...it is an older property in the downtown area. If you like hotels that are architecturally distinctive and charming as opposed to sleek and modern, you will enjoy the Lancaster. The lobby is quite impressive...some of the rooms need to be refurbished, and some are clearly nicer than others....the staff is competent and friendly enough, although some are on the stuffy side...
for the money, a good buy, I would say...

The Lancaster is very near Galerias Pacifico and Ave. Florida (The pedestrian mall)....

Downtown has its advantages and disadvantages....it can be noisey during the day (better to be on an upper floor), and is relatively deserted at night (this raises a safety issue....so take a taxi when you go out after dark...there is a cab stand just outside the Lancaster, on the corner of Reconquitsa and Cordoba).....

Thanks for the info. I am not concerned about safety. I have been known to walk the streets of Philly at 4 in the morning. Drunk and shoeless.

thinGorjus,
lol...here's hoping you don't wind up drunk, shoeless and penniles, having been robbed on the streets of Buenos Aires...FWIW, there are some nice bars on Reconquista in which to drink if you are middle aged...if you are young and foolish, asia de Cuba near the Hilton is good.....

OOHHHHH, Asia de Cuba sounds fantastic. We have an Alma de Cuba in Philly that I am a big fan of--trendy and chic. I like places that I can go to show off my Richard Tyler clothes and drink dry Stoli martinis until the sun comes up. Know of any other hot scenes???
