Memories Created, Hospitality Defined
For more than 30 years, the Taste of Lawrence has been held annually to honor our local educators and showcase some of our community's finest dining establishments. Always a great time, the event is aptly named as those in attendance are truly offered a taste of the Lawrence community.
This is my favorite spot in Lawrence to grad a quick dinner. The food is seriously delicious, and the service is great. You will also be quite surprised by how affordable it is, especially considering the amount on the plate and the great atmosphere.Ethan T.
My husband and went to the Eldridge for lunch. It was one of the best experience at a restaurant I've ever had. The sweet fire shrimp is so delicious you'll be hooked. My cheeseburger was cooked perfectly. The prices where good, the restaurant was clean, table set up beautiful. The manager even came and asked us how everything was, I thought that was a special touch. Will recommend to friends and will be back.Sheila C.
The Jayhawker has a unique atmosphere that subtlety hints towards a fine dining experience full of historical nostalgia. Settled in the lobby of The Eldridge Hotel. With its wide variety of top shelf spirits and wine and a selection of beers to quench the thirst of anyone's palette that seeks out such pleasures. Has become a destination of Kansas University Alumni and tourist far and wide.James L

My wife and I came into town, for a little getaway, and to celebrate our anniversary. It's been several years since we last stayed here, and from our recent visit, we won't put off staying away any longer. The room was very spacious, clean, comfortable - just what we needed after a night of dining out.John H.
It's nice to have an historic retreat. We went for a wedding that was gorgeous and were treated to a street side view and got to take in the very cool and quaint Lawrence Christmas Parade from the comfort of our toasty hotel room.Jason J.
Our favorite restaurant and bar when in Lawrence. We have always had great service and very good food at both the restaurant and the bar over our 15 plus years of visiting Lawrence.Danya R.
I had the opportunity to stay at the Extended Eldridge hotel and it was an upgraded version of the Eldridge itself. It is right downtown and within walking distance to all of the great venues Lawrence has to offer. Outstanding service from front desk, restaurants, housekeeping, everyone! They have great amenities, plus their beds are amazing too! I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone visiting this area.Terri R.
We stayed at the Extended Stay and loved it! The room was beautiful with wood paneling, tall 12 ft ceilings and gorgeous wood shutter windows. The bed was soft and the pillows plenty and fluffy. Everything was pristine, clean and comfortable. The location was ideal, one block to the center of the action in Mass street.Lis F.
The Eldridge Hotel has it right, large rooms, with all modern conveniences, old fashioned grace and superb friendly service. What more could you want from a hotel? Ah yes, location. Downtown Lawrence has all the neat restaurants and services would could want.Shim E.
Classic hotel with great customer service. I had to leave at 5 a.m. to catch a flight. A staff member was kind enough to walk me to my car parked a couple of blocks away and assist with my luggage. Newly renovated bar/entry which is beautiful. Thanks to all the staff for making my trip back to Lawrence wonderful!Kelly R.
One of our Mass Street favorites! We love the menu, the atmosphere and have always received first rate service. So much variety to choose from and everything we've had is magnificent. The Sweet Fire shrimp appetizer and the Pan Seared Ahi Tuna salad are both spectacular, tough to order wrong at The Eldridge, we'll be back for sure!Hi T.
Fantastic historic hotel right on Massachusetts street in downtown Lawrence. Right in the heart downtown with great shopping, dining and bars just a few steps away. We came for the parade and holiday shopping and where able to get a forth floor room overlooking the parade route.Lance G.
Had a chance to finally stay here after passing it countless times over my years visiting Lawrence. Wonderful ground level lounge and excellent service from the front desk staff. Look forward to a longer visit in the future.Stephen H.
So glad we chose to stay here while in Lawrence! The staff was great and the room was spacious and comfortable. There is a restaurant on the main floor and they offer great room service as well.Renata B.
This hotel provides plenty of upgrades that separate them from most properties! I travel a lot so I have to give this place five stars for going above and beyond. As far as design I would give the first floor lobby bathrooms 5 stars. Everything is glamorous, yet classy with a modern twist to traditional look.Maria V.
Three or four of us, retired teachers, meet before your fireplace occasionally. Yesterday we were treated warmly and genuinely - like royalty, actually! by Monte and MacKenzie. Thank you for exceptionally hospitality. Best wishes to all from your retired Lawrence teacher fans.Mary C.
The food was excellent and service was extremely fast and attentive.Debbie R.
I have stayed at The Eldridge at least 5 times. Love it!Nora D.
Nice bar staff, I enjoyed the conversations and the knowledge of mixology!John M.
Catherine and her staff helped me host a 20-person weekend event. Everything went smoothly; the event was easy to plan with clear communication and great service from start to finish. Plus, the group raved about the hotel; everyone loved its unique spaces and historical character.Academy of Management
The Eldridge has hosted our annual company Christmas Party for the last two years in the Crystal Ballroom and the planning process could not have been more effortless. I worked directly with Catherine, all we had to do was show up and have a good time. The staff was friendly and attentive and the bar staff kept up with our healthy appetite for mixed cocktails. I would recommend the Eldridge to friends and family!Martin Logan
We recently held our work retreat at the Eldridge for the second year in a row and as always, the event and front desk staff were amazing. Catherine and her team were easy to work with during the planning phase and had great suggestions for food options and room set up. We will definitely be back!Aledade
Our team had a wonderful experience working with Catherine for our event. When it came time for executing our event, The staff who helped serve at the event were outstanding as well. I highly recommend working with Catherine for any event at the Eldridge Hotel!Ernst & Young
Our holiday party at the Eldridge was terrific. The space was beautiful, and the service was fantastic. This venue is one-stop-shopping from a party planner’s point of view - no caterer to hire and no tables, chairs, dishes, or linens to rent. Catherine and her team were so friendly. They did a great job with all the details - from initial planning to day-of preparation. They even boxed up the decorations at night's end, so we didn’t have to stay late to do it ourselves.Stephens Real Estate
We found the Eldridge to be the perfect venue for hosting our Dealer Advisory Council dinner. The Big 6 room was the ideal setting for a networking reception and then dining for our group. Catherine made planning our event easy, and the Eldridge staff was friendly and helpful throughout the evening.Amarr Garage
Never recieved such above-and-beyond customer service before. The rooms were beautiful and the hotel was very historic and elegant!Jacob W.
