We came into this location very unexpectedly. Jon was working the desk and went out of his way to help us with all of our needs, questions, and concerns! It's employees like this that keep me coming back to the ihg chain!

On a recent business trip (hence budget - they accept government rate, and tax free) stayed for three nights. Rooms are very nice, beds very comfortable and seem new. Free wi-fi and plenty of places to plug in and charge electronics. Bathroom updated and clean. Small refrigerator and microwave and single serving coffee in room. It's located in South Lawrence,...

My trip to Lawrence was a pretty rough one, but once I arrived at the hotel, I really felt welcomed. I arrived without my bags and the hotel staff provided me with toiletries to help me out. The location was great, near places to eat and shop, as well as where I need to be - I was visiting Haskell... More

Stayed here for a day and felt not bad for the money I paid. Close to the university and shops, good parking space, nice people, so I never had any trouble. But if you would like to stay for longer then I would recommend you to look for different location.

This a nice hotel. It is conveniently located to everything - KU, restaurants and shopping. Our room was very nice. The layout was ideal. My only problem- please note- I am a light sleeper. It is very noisy. This room sits above the door entry. The door entry has sliding doors that are very loud. People were coming in and... More

The location is close to campus and downtown. You do have to drive to get there. Staff was friendly and accommodations were good. Place is clean. For a quick stop over it worked fine. I did notice there is a popular trail right by the hotel. It looked like it was popular based on the number of cars parked by... More
