The Lancaster Hotel Review

: Billed as Houston's only small luxury hotel, this charming historic property was constructed during the 1920s flapper era and transformed into Houston’s first boutique hotel in 1983. It’s more than convenient for lovers of the arts, as the entire Theater District including the Alley Theatre, Jones Hall and the Wortham Center are virtually next door. It’s also adjacent to Houston’s downtown business district, with free ground transportation within three miles. Flags of different nations welcome guests as they approach the beveled-glass and brass front doors. Paying tribute through their décor to Houston's numerous performing arts venues, the 93 guest rooms and suites each are equipped with poster beds, sitting rooms and marble baths plus modern amenities such as free Wi-Fi, mini-bars and two-line cordless telephones with voice mail. The Bistro serves American bistro cuisine to power lunchers and theater goers. The three meeting rooms can accommodate from ten to 150 for meetings and banquets. The Lancaster is a Texas State Landmark and is a proud member of Historic Hotels of America.
