What our guests are saying

What a joy to return to the stunning revival of The Lancaster. Always my favorite Houston hotel, it is now my favorite of many boutique and historic hotels visited in Europe and the U.S. First of all, the staff is unfailingly helpful, pleasant and seem truly glad to be there. I must mention Miss Rose, who presides over the bountiful and delicious breakfast buffet in a gorgeous, light and airy space. It was so good to see that after many years she is still there with her ready smile. The rooms! Lighter, brighter with interesting artwork, a very comfortable bed, great Nespresso coffee maker, gratis snacks and drinks, fantastic shower, linens soft and smooth, comfy robes and on and on. Oh, heck. Just go! You won't regret it. Congratulations Lancaster.
