With Astros games coming up at Minute Maid Park throughout June, we definitely suggest staying at the Lancaster Hotel. Stop by the bar before the game and enjoy a draft beer and nuts. Then, it’s just a quick walk to the stadium. As always, enjoy a gourmet breakfast, in-room snacks and beverages, Nespresso coffee, and more—all complimentary.
