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....

The hotel rooms have air conditioning units that are very loud. Room 210 is particularly awful. The air conditioner sits in the wall directly next to the bed. Room 203 is a bit, but not much better. My stay: I stayed, for business, on a weeknight and originally got the dreaded room 210. On check-in, the nice desk clerk apologized...

The other downtown Lawrence hotels cannot compete with the personal touch of the Eldridge staff. We've been staying at the Eldridge for several years now and the staff always welcomes us like honored guests. The bar serves the best drinks and the daily specials are very fun. The breakfast is not included but the experience in the hotel restaurant is...

The Eldridge is definitely a place worth staying. Not only its historical significant in Lawrence but the comfort and amenities are superb. This was my second stay at the Eldridge and have nothing but praise. The entire staff and the great care they give to each guest was amazing. Also many wonderful restaurants and shopping all within walking distance.

We stay at the Eldridge every year for our annual girls' weekend trip, and it is always wonderful. It is a great hotel, comfortable and well appointed, with the perfect location in the middle of downtown Lawrence. Love everything about it, and don't want to stay anywhere else.

This hotel was awesome. There is a bit of noise from the hip downtown area but its worth it to be so close to great food and stores. The beds were comfortable. The towls were plush. I was thrilled by how large the room was.

Considering the history of the Eldridge, one might question why not stay!! This hotel is older but really focuses on the amenities and service of long ago.
