More Room Types

The Lancaster Houston is an upscale, historic property offering a wealth of great freebies alongside a solid downtown location within easy walking distance to the sites, restaurants and nightlife of the city's bustling theater district.

The unique guest rooms are equal parts elegant and homey, with trendy color schemes, textured accents and modern amenities like complimentary Wi-Fi. Some of the rooms are a bit small, but smart design makes them feel cozy as opposed to cramped. 

The gourmet continental breakfast each morning is legitimately delicious and totally free, as is an evening wine reception and complimentary car service to sites within three miles of the hotel (like the museum district, for example.)
