What a hotel! Beautiful historic building with a story to tell. Lovely lobby and friendly staff to help. The rooms aren't very 'hip' but they are great value. Room was huge and I had two TVs. Great location too.

If you valet, where is the car parked?
Ours was parked in a double decker lot across the street. Street parking can be hard to find and it has limited hours so valet was sometimes the best choice, particularly overnight.

Is parking free?
hello Melissa W., parking is free on Sundays and holidays in Downtown Lawrence. Our bellmen will gladly valet your car for $10 for overnight guests. Otherwise there is a 2-hour free lot behind the hotel that's city-owned or there is metered on-street parking. Hope this helps! ~ Lisa, Eldridge Marketing

"If you have to stay here, pick a high floor that does not face Mass Street"
"Book online directly on the hotel's website"
"209 didn't have a view, but the other rooms probably had great views of downtown Lawrence. Rooms on the top 2 floors are much bigger."
"Rooms are equipped with white noise machines to cover street noise, so it was perfect. Beds super comfy!"
"I had a room facing the Main Street which apparently can get quite loud, but I had no problem"
