The Lancaster Hotel: You Won My Loyalty!

Hope your weekend is going well!  I know there have not been many outfit posts lately, and I do apologize, but my wonderful photographers (son and husband) have been exceptionally busy lately! 

I do have a very special place I would like to share with you today.  If you ever travel to Houston, you must stay in THE LANCASTER HOTEL a fabulous boutique hotel in downtown across from The Jones Concert Hall.  Built in 1926, the Lancaster is an official Texas Landmark and a member of Historic Hotels in America.   It is rich with heritage, which you can read about HERE.

What I love is the way the designers created a blend of vintage and new with each step from the entry way to the rooms.   The vintage feel affords a coziness you will not find in the big chain hotels and creates a chic, elegant ambiance which is well…warm and cozy.  However, the new touches of leather, and marble counters, and creative design takes business travel to a new level.  

I was there on business travel and appreciated the breakfast provided in the morning complete with smiling, service-focused staff; the eating area with current news channels on and daily newspapers available; and the easy business room with computers to pull up the airplane site and printers to print whatever needs you might have…such as a boarding pass.  As a female business travels, I loved the makeup mirror, full length mirror…and oh, did I mention the cozy robes and Starbucks Coffee for the room.

The food was excellent from dinner to breakfast…and I loved the intimacy of THE BISTRO LANCASTER.  All it lacked was a touch of Frank Sinatra or a pianist to add icing on the New- York- feeling atmosphere.  I also want to compliment the staff…their kindness and smiles!  
Final word...this MOLTEN CHOCOLATE CAKE WITH JACK DANIELS AND NUTELLA SAUCE...there are just no words...best dessert I have tasted in a long time...it was incredible!

This is one hotel I will return to....

Have a Wonderful Thursday!

  3. Really beautiful. Thanks for sharing. I will keep it in mind if I have to travel to Houston.

    Meanwhile, check out electronic boarding passes. No printing. They changed my life.

  4. This place looks so lovely! I must try to visit one day.

  5. The Lancaster has long been among my local favorites. So much so that I've set scenes there in my own writing.


Thanks so much for joining in our conversation today! I appreciate your time and love hearing from you!
