    hair dryer was good

    i arrived at 11.30 pm and no free parking was available, so I had to pay 12 dollars in valet parking in lawrence!!!! - which is country side Kansas - At 12.15 This Tuesday I had to call the reception to ask when the loud music would stop. I woke up by my self at 6 the next morning, at 6.30 music would play again, Breakfast is only served from 7 and I could not go down town and get something from starbucks at Mass,because I would loose my valet parking. And finally water in the shower was not warm enough.

    I always feel very comfortable when I stay at the Oread. It is very convenient to campus and the dorms, which encompasses the reason for our visit.

    Beautiful hotel. Warm. Convenient....everything we needed was right there if we didn't want to leave. Love the fireplace room.

    Not a deal breaker....but I didn't care for the "art work/prints" in the rooms. Doesn't fit the classiness of the rooms. Also the bathrooms could use another towel rack. : )

    It would have bene nice if they would be offer breakfast. Besides extremely unhealthy fast food there is no place close by where one can get a decent breakfast.

    I liked the personal touches of original artwork throughout the hotel making it unique and special. Staff was great and accommodating. And the bed was very nice

    Wish there was a pool and hot rub but wasn't a deal breaker. I will definitely stay there again.
