The staff is very friendly and always willing to go that extra mile to make you feel at home. The rooms are modern and very clean. The bed was very comfortable with enough pillows for a whole Family! The leather chairs are very comfortable too!

Our first stay in this historic hotel was wonderful. King size bed was very comfy as were the pillows(important). We had a sitting room that was enjoyable. Gave it a 4 out of 5 as the lighting could have been better, but all was overall very good! The history of this hotel is displayed throughout the hotel. A great feel...

I was referred to this hotel when making a trip to Topeka. I needed a nice place to stay that was within walking distance of food, amenities, and entertainment. Located on Lawrence's main street within an easy and safe walking distance of countless restaurants, cafes, and ice cream shops, the Hotel Eldridge was a wonderful mix of prairie-style decor and...

Very nice hotel and historic lobby. Incredible breakfast. Rooms much above average (not off the charts but very nice). Incredible location at the start of the main strip. Highly recommend this hotel with very friendly and helpful staff.

Tepid water and a no water pressure were the case when I stayed at the Eldridge this weekend. I called the front desk to inquire about a possible shower in the gym or spa. None. Was there another room I could shower in? Apparently not. Two workers came up the first to try to remedy the situation to no avail...

Nice old fashioned property directly on downtown MASS St. Can walk to everything & about 10 mins from campus. Nice turn of the century pub & beautiful lobby. If you want to upgrade yourself a bit & get away from the typical chain hotels in town this is the place. Staff first class. Was surprised at the Sunday Brunch &...

The room was noisy, rm 310. We heard the elevator all night, the door did not close very tight so light was spilling in, not very condusive to sleeplng. The air conditioner was noisy and kept cycling on and off. The only good thing was the location.

My mother, four sisters and I stayed here for a weekend. We had a wonderful experience. The rooms were very spacious--a large living room for each suite with sofa, upholstered chairs, plus a table and chairs. The beds were in a separate room. Linens were luxurious, mattress very comfortable. Large, well-lit bathroom with separate room for shower and toilet. We...

We are long time customers of the Eldridge as well as its bar and restaurant. Unfortunately, on this visit to watch a KU road game in the Jayhawker bar and to celebrate our anniversary, it was not up to its usual standards. First, when we went up to our premier king room, some of the furniture was missing! After being...

First and foremost, we at The Eldridge would like to apologize to your overall experience. We do pride ourselves in offering gracious hospitality and make it our top priority to recover when something has gone wrong. We are working on improving the sound in the Jayhawker bar and hope to get all of the TVs linked through our speakers. As...
