You will not be disappointed in these accommodations. From Check in to check out, the staff was friendly and helpful. The layout of the room is excellent. The cleaning staff take great pride in their work. Valet parking is a great decision for this location as it is hard to find a parking place in downtown Lawrence. Lots of shopping...

We have stayed in the Eldridge Extended Stay building of the Eldridge Hotel several times when we have been in Lawrence on business and have always enjoyed the large room and its proximity to the business meeting we were attending. This year, as in past years, when making our reservation, several months in advance of our arrival, we asked for...

Absolutely friendly and helpful staff. Pictures and decor in lobby give you a real sense of the history of this hotel. Modern touches like big HD tv's, wifi worked just fine, no issues with anything at all. The staff and the history make this place a must stay. Plenty of shops and restaurants - places to walk to and enjoy,...

This is a nice old downtown hotel. Lawrence is lovely so it's great to be steps away from everything! Bed was comfy. But noise from street and train could be problematic. Was impressed that each room had a white noise machine. A nice touch that helped me sleep - still needed earplugs. But rooms lack coffee machines - needs to...

Feels better than it is. Which is not to say it's a bad place to stay. I'd say it's the most upscale and best service within 30 miles. It just about manages 4 star, mainly due to the character of the building and quality of the staff, then there is a lot of effort in keeping the rooms fresh. Downers...

I love the Eldridge Hotel. The history of Lawrence and the Civil War clearly collide at the Eldridge Hotel. The history of the hotel, and it being burned by Quantrill's Raiders (more than once)is amazing and truly a sad story of the division of the States. The fact that the Eldridge survived and lives on is testament to the resolve...

Great service from the time of booking and throughout our stay. I would personally like to thank Brad that assisted me after I made an error on our reservation. He was very helpful and understanding. We stayed in the famous 506 room, it's beautiful! With a luxurious bedding, a sitting room, and a view of Massachusetts St. It exceeded expectations!...

I was on a last minute trip and the only room left was in the extension. It was a little pricy, and the building looks run down from the outside, but the lobby and rooms are nice. Big wooden shutters close the windows, making it dark and quiet to sleep. The location a block of Mass helps that also. Exterior...

Room service breakfast was really good! Food and drinks at Jayhawker were fantastic. Room was spotless and super comfortable. Perfect Location, only 1 parking ticket. Only complaint is not seeing the ghost :(

My daughter and I stayed at the Eldridge Hotel for Clarinet Fest from August 4-7, 2016. The hotel, although old, was well maintained and the service was excellent. The food in the 10 Restaurant was fabulous. The only negative was the $10 valet fee for parking the car, as we had to come and go a lot for Clarinet Fest....
