Great location, 1925 built hotel is in perfect condition.

Nothing the toilet in our room didn’t work, the elevator broke down, and horrible service

Great historic location, close to many restaurants and some shops. Hotel refurbishing continues and the restaurant is still closed. Once completed it should be much better. Staff is minimal during construction so not a lot of service. The few there are nice but seem inexperienced.

No advance notice on on-site construction was not acceptable.... closure and renovation of both restaurants also was not divulged in booking process. Construction noise started early at 6am. Air conditioner noise prevented sleep and difficult to regulate. Entire stay below expectations. Live the location, but doubt we will return.

Valet parking. Nice staff. Excellent stay. Right downtown so it’s close to everything

Thank for being our guest at the Historic Eldridge and for taking the time to share your experience with us! Your feedback is helpful and very much appreciated. I was very disappointed to read about the issues you had during your last stay. As you remarked, our restaurant and bar are under renovation as an update has been long awaited. I am incredibly sorry that you were not made aware of this prior to setting up your reservation. We have posted renovation notices under multiple avenues to make sure our guests are aware ahead of time. We also have more information listed under our “About The Hotel” tab under Renovations & Closures. Again, I am very sorry for the inconveniences this caused you. We are thankful to have you as our guest and I do hope you chose to try us again in the future, especially upon the completion of our restaurant and bar renovation.
