We stayed at the SpringHill Suites in Lawrence in May, over the Graduation weekend. The location is good for walking to restaurants and stores along Mass. Avenue. The hotel, though better than adequate, is in need of more staff and updating. Check-in was available late in the day and handled by one staff member making the process long and tiresome.... More

Avoid this place if you can. It's a hike from the parking lot to the room which are situated below ground level but with windows overlooking the rocks and mud below a dam on the Kansas River. Room accoutrements are cookie cutter standard. At all hours of day and night, freight trains rumble through an underground tunnel close to the... More

Hello NickRocco, Thank you for taking the time out of your busy day to write about our property at SpringHill Suites Lawrence. You might be surprised to know that the hotel property is now in what used to be Lawrence's outlet mall. The property was put in here attempting to use this very nice property overlooking the Kansas River, which... More

I had reserved a handicapped accessible hotel. The room was the perfect size, and you can see the river as soon as you open up the curtains. Sadly, I found problems as soon as I walked in the door. You could barely see out of the windows with all the spider webs. The ac unit had leaked onto the carpet,... More

Hello Lunchbox7s7 Thank you for sharing your experience while staying at our property. I apologize for the issues that you encountered during your stay. While we do enjoy our location in downtown and being right off the river, it does also some with a few challenges. The trees that are on the river directly behind the hotel are Cottenwood trees....

This is not the first time I have stayed at a Springhill Suites so I had previous experience with the brand. You cannot beat the location - Just off Massachusetts you can walk to everything but after three days there this and the young lady who checked us out are the only positives. First, it is very unkempt looking outside.... More

Hello eas1404, Thank you for taking the time to write a review regarding your stay with us. You are correct that we enjoy a great location in the downtown Lawrence area. Our location does come with a couple of challenges though. The walkway that you referenced is partly controlled by us and the US Army Corps of Engineers. We are... More

I have stayed in a few Springhill Suites before – most being the cookie cutter new builds. This one used to be part of an old shopping mall located right on the river. The LOCATION cannot be beat. Steps to all the action on Mass Street. The lobby is large. It also has banquet rooms/meeting space which seems unusual for... More

The hotel is very comfortable, tidy and clean. Staff is professional and kind. Breakfast is not diverse, the same food makes you get bored. But there are cafes and restaurants nearby so you can have what you want there.

We can't say enough about Edgar Martinez, the manager. He was extremely helpful and accomodating to us regarding changing some reservations that were made a year in advance and prepaid for graduation. The hotel itself is very comfortable. The staff tried very hard to keep up with breakfast demands despite a busy weekend. I appreciate they keep coffee and water... More

I tried to post this two days ago so if that post shows up, please disregard. I had requested a quiet room on top floor. Assigned room was #383. Right away noticed very loud a/c, especially during the first 5 minutes after cycling from off to on. Asked for another room in same area, was told to check back later.... More

This was the perfect place to stay for graduation. Only 1.5 miles from the stadium and it's an easy walk! My son loved the pool too! Breakfast every morning was well stocked. The sofa bed wasn't the most comfortable but the beds were soft. More pillows and extra towels were readily available.

Located just off Mass street in downtown Lawrence, the SpringHill is a nice facility. The lobby is very modern and wide open offering a beautiful view of the river. This wide open lobby space is shared with the morning breakfast area as well. The rooms are clean, but a bit broken up in design. Walking into the room there is... More
