Been wanting to stay here a long time so I finally decided to make it happen on the way home from a road trip. Great experience from beginning to end. Check-in was a breeze. We got there minutes from the restaurants closing but you couldn't tell from the service. The hotel is very old from far from dated. The top... More

The choice was between a new Marriot in Lawrence and the Eldridge. I made the right choice for us. The hotel is newly renovated and very comfortable. The room, 507, was a standard king. It was a corner room with great views. Kind of funny that there are 2 TVs for this "suite" since there was no wall between the... More

The hotel is a great historic hotel and in a great location to restaurants, shops and downtown but the suites are odd. Big living area, okay bedrooms but small bathrooms. Sidebar in room has small fridge and microwave but no coffee maker. For the price wld have appreciated a daily paper as well. Need a few more amenities to up... More

The Eldridge has an excellent staff and great ambiance. All facilities meet 21st century expectations while the renovations have carefully captured the historic nature of the hotel. It was like stepping into the past in the most positive way. Well done.

Attended a business conference, 2-day stay, the room was impeccable, services excellent, and the staff very accommodating. Lunches included, delicious!!! Recommend using valet parking, as it is difficult to park elsewise, the only negative but easily handled. A lot of history with this hotel and that makes it all the more fun to stay there!! I'll visit again on my... More

In town on business, for an old hotel it was very nice. The room was spacious, clean and very well decorated. The living area had a large tv along with the bedroom I wish the room had more outlets but for an older place I understand. Did not find out about the "haunted "aspect until I arrived, no big deal.... More

Off the bat I can tell you that No, we did not experience anything. That being said this hotel and this room is AMAZINGGG!! This was the last hotel on our "haunted hotel" vacation we took this year. The room was so great that I was actually hoping nothing would happen so I could enjoy a long night of sleep... More

We enjoyed our stay in the historic Eldridge hotel when in town for a concert at the Granada. Check in was friendly and efficient although it was at times difficult to converse due to the revelry in the bar. Tena's helpful advice on dining in the more quiet hotel restaurant (delicious) and parking was appreciated. The overall size of the... More

For special occasions, my family had dined during brunch at TEN (the restaurant) in the Eldridge Hotel, but we had never stayed at the hotel property until recently. My wife and I were attending a concert by Bernadette Peters at the Lied Center and decided that it would be a good opportunity to stay overnight at the Eldridge. To say... More
