We stayed at the Eldridge for three nights recently and were very impressed with the property, the staff, the large room, the wonderfully appointed bathroom, quiet night's sleep on an extremely comfortable mattress~ The best part is the room's heat Worked very well and was very quiet It was so nice not to be waken up by a noisy room...

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

My boyfriend spoiled me by taking me here. We got a kind suite on the corner of Mass street. It was so beautiful and charming. Then while we were getting around to be able to people watch from so high up was so much fun. The hotel is beautiful! So much charm and history, it really is elegant. The staff... More

We stayed one night at the Eldrige Hotel. The property is historic, charming, and extremely well maintained. Our room was spacious and updated with the best modern comforts. The staff was extremely accommodating and pleasant. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would love to go back.

I stayed at the Eldridge Extended Suites and had a wonderful stay. I am used to Four Seasons quality and the Extended Suites matched that with 16 ft ceilings, hardwood floors, stainless appliances including a full sized refrigerator, large flat screen TV with quality DVD and custom travertine spacious bathroom. AND the service was impeccable, including room service from the... More

The Eldridge has it all - history and charm but up to date amenities. Our King Corner Suite was perfectly outfitted with not 1 but 2 big screen TVs. Bar sink and mini fridge (could have done with a well stocked mini bar but the reasonably priced Jawhawker bar is just a few floors away). And the location cannot be... More
