We stayed here As part of a University of Kansas event. The location is easy to walk to Massachusetts Street and all the restaurants and shopping. The weather was hot, so we did choose to drive to campus every day as it is several miles

The hotel is convenient (walking distance) to restaurants and bars. We had a room on the main level, which I recommend. We also had a nice view of the Kansas River. The hotel included an exercise facility and pool, but we weren't there long enough to use them. The complimentary breakfast was extensive. The only complaint is the number of... More

We went to Lawrence for my fiance's cousin's wedding in April. The hotel was nice, nothing too out of the ordinary. The rooms were decent size and the bed was absolutely heavenly. Everyone was somewhat scattered around the hotel, so the common area in the lobby where the continental breakfast was served in the morning was essential for getting everyone... More

We stayed at the SpringHill Suites in Lawrence in May, over the Graduation weekend. The location is good for walking to restaurants and stores along Mass. Avenue. The hotel, though better than adequate, is in need of more staff and updating. Check-in was available late in the day and handled by one staff member making the process long and tiresome.... More

Avoid this place if you can. It's a hike from the parking lot to the room which are situated below ground level but with windows overlooking the rocks and mud below a dam on the Kansas River. Room accoutrements are cookie cutter standard. At all hours of day and night, freight trains rumble through an underground tunnel close to the... More

I had reserved a handicapped accessible hotel. The room was the perfect size, and you can see the river as soon as you open up the curtains. Sadly, I found problems as soon as I walked in the door. You could barely see out of the windows with all the spider webs. The ac unit had leaked onto the carpet,... More

Hello Lunchbox7s7 Thank you for sharing your experience while staying at our property. I apologize for the issues that you encountered during your stay. While we do enjoy our location in downtown and being right off the river, it does also some with a few challenges. The trees that are on the river directly behind the hotel are Cottenwood trees....

This is not the first time I have stayed at a Springhill Suites so I had previous experience with the brand. You cannot beat the location - Just off Massachusetts you can walk to everything but after three days there this and the young lady who checked us out are the only positives. First, it is very unkempt looking outside.... More

I have stayed in a few Springhill Suites before – most being the cookie cutter new builds. This one used to be part of an old shopping mall located right on the river. The LOCATION cannot be beat.

The hotel is very comfortable, tidy and clean. Staff is professional and kind. Breakfast is not diverse, the same food makes you get bored. But there are cafes and restaurants nearby so you can have what you want there.

We can't say enough about Edgar Martinez, the manager. He was extremely helpful and accomodating to us regarding changing some reservations that were made a year in advance and prepaid for graduation. The hotel itself is very comfortable. The staff tried very hard to keep up with breakfast demands despite a busy weekend. I appreciate they keep coffee and water... More
