“Final Leg”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 4, 2014

We stayed at Senate on our way home from vacation. We were tired of the same ole boxy hotel rooms. This place has character. My daughter had her own room with a bed, my husband and I had our own room, along with a sitting room and TV and an open patio. We enjoyed the stay and we're really happy with the price we got from Expedia.

Thank you for the great review. We are glad that you found us on Expedia but remember, you can get the exact same rates on the Senate own website and the are benefits to booking directly with us.

Try it out next time. Thanks again.

This is NOT your average overnight lodging experience!!! It is more like a B & B without the "hominess" usually associated with this genre. This older establishment has seen a lot of different living styles over the years. The Suites used to be luxury apartments in the bye-gone era and you can almost feel what life was like many years ago. The staff is very friendly and helpful which is a wonderful thing. Our room was on the third floor with a neat view of the surounding area and it is a short walk to the Kansas State Capitol. Everything was neat and orderly and the morning breakfast exceeded expectations. The walls and resultant soundproofing left a little to be desired but most of our neighbors retired at a reasonable hour so this was not a big problem for us. The rates were very reasonable.
Come stay at this nice place with a little bit of adventure in your heart and you will be glad that you did. You won't soon forget your "different" stay in downtown Topeka.

What a great review. It looks like a description we should write! We have never thought of the B&B comparison but you are very accurate with that description. Our staff treats everyone like family, breakfast is bountiful, and the sleep is top notch.

The Senate Suites is super convenient to everything to see and do in Topeka. It is only two blocks easy walk to the capitol and four to the Westar building downtown.

The room rates are very competitive. The staff are all very courteous. The hotel is very clean throughout, from the guest rooms to the breakfast area and the exercise area.

The breakfast is a very good variety of choices including waffles you make, biscuits and gravy, fruit, yogurt and the like.

I will always stay at the Senate Suites when in Topeka.

Room Tip: Room 224 and 324 provide excellent direct views from their balconies of the beautifully renovated Ka...

Thank you for your continued business. You definitely are a "veteran" of the hotel giving out the secrets of the best views.

We look forward to your next trip. Hopefully the rooms are available for you!

Thank you for the review. Congrats on the graduation. Washburn has a great law program and we do a lot of business with the university being less than 5 minutes away.

This hotel is a total find! It sits just down the street from the Capital. I'm sure it once was great. Now it's simply extremely good. The rooms have the charm of an earlier era. And they are today's clean and comfortable, with all the amenities (including french doors on the closet). The room we had had a balcony with a porch swing (nice warm evening, how great was that?). Even the breakfast (included) wasn't bad. Staff was very friendly and accommodating. We'd definitely stay again if we're ever in the area. [Check out the Blind Tiger Brewery, just down the road, for a good meal.]

More and more people are catching on to the great value of the Senate. The Blind Tiger is a great partner of ours and a fantastic place for dinner and award winning beer.

We got there late in the evening, the room was ready, clean, spacious, and the price was great. The breakfast the next morning had scrambled eggs, bacon, sausage, waffles to make, fruit, juice, coffee, bread, French toast, yogurt, and I am probably forgetting something. It was really a treat to stay here and will probable do that again when we go to Iowa to see our daughter!

It may not be "luxury" but it's a great place to stay with all the amenities I would want. Traveling this time as a single woman, I felt safe and comfortable. It's clean and well managed. No complaints.
