Nice Hotel, Dishonest Staff
The hotel was nice, but the staff is dishonest. When I booked my reservation I called to get the rollaway bed, but the staff member told me that we wouldn't need it because the sofa folds out into a bed. When we got to the room, this was not the case and when I called they said they never said that and that they are out of rollaway beds. They tried to make it right by giving us a second room and charging us full price! WTF!!! The next morning, I called to ask what time breakfast was over, they said 10:30am. So we took our time, took showers and went to breakfast at 9:55. Come to find out that they shut everything down by 10am. We were lucky to get a piece of toast. So overall the hotel was fine and in a good location, but don't believe anything the staff tells you.

Overzealous housekeeping
The staff was friendly and pleasant. My only complaint was i was in the bathroom and housekeeping came in. She quickly apologized and left,still it was unfortunate. After that i was taking a nap in the afternoon and again housekeeping woke me to offer a chocolate and turn down service in the mid to late afternoon.

Read the previous reviews, thought must be too good to be true... The Lancaster is the real deal... from the moment you step the curb, the service exceeds every standard... Think I’m embellishing? Dare you to find a flaw... you’ll be awestruck by all you’re treated to as their guest... reminds of what the others were twenty years ago... something to do with seasons and carlton.... The Lancaster, Houston... Must see

Exemplary. Easy valet. Greeted with flutes of bubbles during check-in. Beautiful property, really enjoyed the art. Room was perfect (bed comfy, clean as a whistle, free snacks/bevs), delightful wait staff in bar, tea room and restaurant, prompt check-out and quick valet retrieval. Just top-notch from start to finish. Location is surrounded by theater district and a couple blocks from the vibrant Main Street.
