The Lancaster Hotel in Houston.....Babyyyyyy is a Must. If you are looking for a beautiful, clean, local, historical atmosphere with an AMAZING staff . Then you need to book a night at The Lancaster Hotel. My experience with Jesus from the time of booking 2 months in advance to me checking out after 5 days of a wonderful stay is simply put TOP NOTCH. My interactions with ALL the staff from valet parking to the general manager Mr. Hartwell, I simply cannot say enough about them, and their level of dedication to making everyone's stay a excellent one. They all truly enjoy being of service to others and for ALL OF THESE REASONS I WILL RECOMMEND AS WELL AS BOOK ANOTHER STAY HERE.
