The stylish Lancaster Hotel situated at 701 Texas Street in downtown Houston is one of only two Texas hotels that made it on the list. The Lancaster Hotel came in at fourth on the ranking while Hotel Emma, located in San Antonio, secured sixth place. 

The historic, 93-room Lancaster Hotel is nestled in Houston’s downtown Theater District. Built in 1926, it was originally named the Auditorium Hotel.
