I have always wanted to stay at The Eldridge, and it definitely did not disappoint. We booked the honeymoon suite for the night of our wedding. I spoke with the hotel beforehand to see if we might be able to get in early to take some wedding photos. They were extremely accommodating and allowed us into the suite by about... More

I was expecting a nice hotel, but the Eldridge went far above and beyond my expectations. The hotel is in a great location and within walking distance of shops and restaurants. Check-in was speedy as was check-out. The room was absolutely gorgeous. It was clear that a lot of thought have been given to the set-up of the room and... More

We stayed here for a weekend during our friends' wedding reception weekend. The staff was extremely accommodating and very attentive. Will definitely stay here again. Great location as well with many close restaurants and bars, including the great bar in the hotel and the amazing Sunday brunch!

Our United flight was cancelled hours before departure, along with other flights. The hotel has a 48 hour cancellation policy. We notified the hotel as soon as we knew of the cancellation. Because 48 hours notice was IMPOSSIBLE, we asked them to waive the fee in the name of goodwill and hospitality. They refused, saying they "decided to be helpful... More

I have stayed here several times previously- and enjoyed the historic ambiance, location, and comfort- and would stay again. On this trip, there were a couple issues that surprised me and should not occur in a well run hotel. I get up early to read in the lobby, and the first mooring there was a very large pool of urine...

The Eldridge is lovely, historic, and in the perfect location on Mass St for dinner at Free State Brewery, shopping locally owned stores, and finding the perfect cup of coffee. Rates are very reasonable when KU is not playing and we always get a corner suite.

We came to Lawrence and the Eldridge Historic Hotel for a wedding and even though it was for only one night, we left well rested. We will most differently come back! The appointments and attention to details in the rooms would be hard to beat. The Hamers

Have stated here many times in the past. Always clean a little road noise at times since it is downtown but they have a white noise machine in the room. Close to shopping and nice restaurants. A great date night out place. My wife and I love this place.
