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. The staff are amazing and truly want to ensure that one has a great experience. The rooms, while different and appear to be dated, are the top of the line and stick to...

Nice older hotel that's in the middle of the downtown scene. 2 blocks from city pool was a big plus. Everything was within walking distance which offset the hefty price tag for a nights stay. Parking is limited, so plan to valet.

Beautiful room, comfortable bed, it was perfect! The front desk clerk was super nice, the valet parking was quick and easy to do, the area is so beautiful and full of fun things to do. Yes, there is talk of a ghost.... we did not hear it, but then again we were on the 4th floor

I selected this hotel for a birthday treat/get-a-way in the beautiful town of Lawrence. The hotel was everything other viewers have said, beautiful, roomy, comfortable. The air conditioning was loud, but I knew this before booking due to other's comments. The room was very comfortable, great bed, cool temperature even during a hot summer day. We slept very well!

I stayed at the elderidge this past weekend for a wedding. Not only is the hotel great, but the location, right in the heart of the downtown area, was perfection. Everything is right outside the door. We valet parked the car (recommended) and didn't need it again until we checked out. The room was huge. I loved that we could...

The lobby in this hotel is just beautiful and very inviting. There is a restaurant and a bar, which are both pricey but accommodating. The bartender gladly opened our wine and let us drink it at the bar (it was a weeknight, so it wasn't too crowded). The room was large and inviting, with a separate sitting area with mini...

Thank you for your feedback. We pride ourselves on a fine wine selection and wine service. Our bartenders have been serving up wine, beer and cocktails at our Jayhawker bar for years. Thanks for your kind words about our rooms too. Travel well and see you soon.

We didn't spend much time in the hotel, but it was quiet and clean and the staff were polite and helpful. The location was fantastic; right in the middle of just about everything. Food, drinks, and entertainment were all within just a few blocks and we didn't even use our car for our entire visit.

Thank you! You can't beat the vibe of Downtown Lawrence, well, except for maybe the vibe of the University on game days! We also appreciate our attentive housekeeping and facilities crew who keeps this historic property shiny and clean! Thanks for taking notice of these things and mentioning them here. Travel well.

Dear Ladies and Gentlemen: I thought the Eldridge Hotel was great! The room was perfectly clean, the carpeting was new, the leather upholstery on the chairs in the room was nice, the tile in the bathroom and at the sink was flat, well-laid, new, attractive, firmly set and the seams between the tiles were tight. The bedroom had no windows....
