It also offers fine dining in three restaurants, reservations for special occasions like weddings, and spacious rooms for business meetings and conferences. The Eldridge is in the heart of Downtown Lawrence. The hotel has been a fixture in Lawrence since before Kansas statehood. In 2005 it was refurbished to its original grandeur and is a great place to stay, grab a drink or hold an event. Learn more at their websites: The Oread, The Eldridge.
