I recently stayed 5 nights at the Eldridge and one at the Springhill. Here is a comparison: STAFF: Superb at both places. Nothing bad to say about either. CHECK-IN: It seemed impossible to check into the Eldridge before 4:00. The Springhill let me in at 2:00. Checkout was 11:00 for both. DESIGN: The Eldridge is a faux historic hotel: It... More

We live in N.E. Kansas. Just 40 minutes from The Eldridge Hotel. Took in a concert just off Mass Street and only 1 block to walk to our room. We checked in at 4:00 and entered the lobby. I said "Wow"! Nostalgic and reminiscent of a time in the past but very modern as well. The old photos portrayed throughout... More

The Eldridge is a classy old fashioned hotel, in a great location Downtown Lawrence. Easy to find, close by, safe parking at low or no cost. The suite was huge, and nicely updated. Unlike many old hotels, the bathroom, heater, and gigantic TVs were all modern, and in excellent working order. The suite was wonderful. Big living room, separated from... More

Four of us went to the Eldridge on a Sunday morning for brunch. If you can't find something to enjoy, you're just not a brunch person. The brunch is buffet style and there were many items from which to choose. We sat in a window table on the bar side and the service was excellent and the food very good.... More

Recently stayed at The Eldridge while in town visiting campus. Location is outstanding, right downtown in the heart of shopping, restaurants, and bars. Surprisingly, despite its location, the room was quiet and they even provide a noise machine if the crowds get rowdy on weekend nights. Rooms are well appointed with modern ammenities, but still have the historic charm. Great... More

This is a great hotel. Very comfortable and a great value. Staff is so nice, bar is great and the restaurant is good for breakfast lunch or dinner. In the heart of downtown and all the shops. Rooms are large and very nice. I stay here every time I visit Lawrence. Enjoy!

Wife and I stayed at their Eldridge Extended facility and were amazed!!! Beautiful, spacious and rustic room just a block away from the main hotel... Also located in a... More
