My husband is a Jayhawk, so we visit Lawrence at least once a year. I have stayed in KC, the converted mall by the river in Lawrence, the Eldridge and the Oread, and the Oread is by far my favorite. It's a great location right in the middle of campus...new...very well built with a couple of restaurants if you don't... More

This is a very nice hotel and the rooms were well appointed. Front desk was very helpful in finding good restaurants. Be aware there is no parking on site and there will be a charge for valet parking - something I come to expect in large urban downtown areas, but not necessarily in Lawrence KS. And the rooms aren't cheap... More

The hotel was wonderful. The staff was very friendly and helpful as this was our first trip to Lawrence to see the University of Kansas. We had a really large room that had two comfortable king beds, very clean, a great view of the campus, and just steps away from campus. We also had breakfast at their restaurant and it... More

The Oread is a luxurious hotel experience. I had a huge corner room with two large windows and the view was just spectacular. The bedroom, bathroom and every nook and cranny was spotless. If there was one thing that need attention it would be the limited amount of channels available on the television. The Oread should really consider getting a... More

The Oread is a beautiful hotel that offers great customer service and great charm. Rooms are not huge but are wonderfully appointed and the pillows are the best I've ever experienced! Wooden shutters ensure a deep, restful sleep. Fabulous holiday buffets great for family get-togethers.

We stayed for the recent Texas @ KU Basketball weekend. Staff was friendly and helpful, in particular, Dave at the Front Desk. The room was a nice corner room on 5 with a view of the Football Stadium. The room needs a bit of work as a hook is off the wall and only the hardware is showing plus under... More

I stayed here in business from the UK and the hotel ideas charming. It's small and friendly with a great bar for coffee/beer* (delete as appropriate). Would definitely recommend to anyone coming to Lawrence - the Starbucks coffee in the lobby is also very welcome!

This place is great from the minute you pull into the oval drive till the moment you get back in your car to leave. Staff is very friendly and willing to answer any questions you may have. They even will remember and call you by name. There are a couple different restaurants inside the hotel. We ate at the 521... More

Lawrence , Kansas is a great college town, but most of the hotels are just your basic chain motels. The Oread is a beautiful gem overlooking the campus and football stadium. The building itself is beautiful and constructed of the local stone. Dining options are really good. There is a Starbucks in the lobby! The other nicer establishment is The... More
