The Lancaster Hotel

Situated in the heart of the theatre district in Houston, The Lancaster Hotel is an ideal choice for families that enjoy a bit of Jazz Age flair. Established in the 1926, the Lancaster was the only qualifying hotel in the Houston area to be accepted into the Historic Hotels of America and has received Texas State Landmark Status. As Houston’s first and most enduring boutique hotel, the Lancaster is also the only historic hotel in the city of Houston that is owned and operated by descendants of the original developer. With all of the charm of days gone by but many modern amenities, the Lancaster Hotel is a calm, tranquil setting where families can relax after a long day of sight-seeing, surrounded by 19th century artwork, distinctive furnishings and lavish decor.


The Lancaster Hotel is located at 701 Texas Avenue in Houston, TX 77002. You can reach them by phone at (713) 228-9500, through their official website, Twitter or Facebook pages.


The elegant furnishings, ornate lobby, dedicated service staff and amenities offered by the Lancaster Hotel have helped to make it a four-star property.

Performances at Jones Hall, The House of Blues and all of the venues within the theatre district are close enough to take in, even on short notice, provided that the event hasn’t sold out.

Our In-Room Hotel Services

Taking in the sights of a new city together is one of the primary reason why parents choose to vacation with their children, as a family. We understand, however, that even the most dedicated parents need a bit of grown-up time on their vacation, as well. That’s why we offer our in-room services to guests of the Lancaster Hotel, whether you simply need to slip away for the evening or will require the services of a temporary childcare provider for the duration of your stay. All of our nannies are diligently pre-screened and vetted through our comprehensive background checking service, which verifies past employment and experience, combs through public records for any arrests, convictions or moving violations and compares the identity of each applicant against the National Sex Offender Registry to ensure that you’ll be able to enjoy your time out with no worries about the safety, dependability or criminal history of the person caring for your children.
