One of my wife's relatives stayed at the Lancaster after her wedding, and loved it. They go back every year on their anniversary now I think. Never been there myself.

Someone also mentioned the hotel derrick, which is neat, but much more modern than the others. I've only been to the bar there though

You may want to look at trip advisor too. Don't go totally on the reviews (not everyone has the same taste) but you can get good general ideas:

Zaza
Icon
Lancaster
Derek
Magnolia

Again, don't take tripadvisor too seriously. Sometimes people get weird ideas on there. And since costs/expectations are included in the rating, you get some bizzaro rankings--like the drury inn and suites being rated the #4 hotel in the entire city?? No idea why some are rated so low/high...
