Comfortable hotel, friendly staff, health club tix
Posted Nov 3, 2016
The Lancaster Hotel has so many nice amenities. Paired with its beautiful lobby, comfortable rooms and super-friendly staff, I can't imagine a better place to stay, particularly for the reasonable room rates.
There is a business center that doubles as a convenience store on the second floor. You can grab a snack, beverage or forgotten toiletries while printing that important document. My stay included a solid breakfast with plenty of healthy and tasty options to eat and drink.
I really appreciated the guest passes to the Houstonian Lite, a very nicely appointed health club. While so many other hotels try to squeeze a workout room into too small a space and end up with fitness facilities that are ill-equipped, the Lancaster takes a much more satisfying approach. It provides complimentary access to a great health club, only a block or two away.
My room was on the small side, but the king bed was extremely comfortable. The air conditioning worked perfectly, which was pretty important for those 90+ degree days during my November stay. There was a desk and chair, providing plenty of work space.
The front desk and valet folks could not have been friendlier or more professional throughout my stay. The front desk personnel were very prompt in helping me and great with directions and suggestions for local restaurants. The valet was available late at night, when I checked in, and very early in the morning when I needed to leave.
Overall a very satisfying stay.
