My fiance and I couldn't have been happier with our stay! We got in quite late on 2/28 and Isobel had breakfast waiting for us at 9 the next morning to start our day of discovery! The house is one of the most beautiful houses I've seen in quite some time and the way she is having everything restored is great! We found out another room is being built so quite soon she'll have 4 winning rooms for travelers to stay in! Plus, we learned that should we be able to get a couple of our other friends to come down and book a room with her all at the same time, we can make ourselves a nice meal together in the kitchen in the evening! All in all, a great time, a wonderful host, and we'll definitely be going back in the future to try the other rooms! P.S. - Romeo and Juliet suite is amazing! You'll LOVE the built in bathtub to relax in!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The majestic Shakespeare Chateau was built in 1885 by Nathan Ogden when St. Joseph Missouri was known as "The Queen of the River Cities." High atop a bluff looking down across the city toward the Missouri River, 809 Hall Street is one of several mansions in the Hall Street Historic District known locally as "Millionaires' Row." You'll enjoy meeting the friendly innkeeper, Isobel, as she takes you through the palatial interior. You'll marvel at 47 (yes, 47!) Original stained glass windows, carved cherrywood, mahogany, and walnut mantles, and of course, a bust of the Bard himself above the grand fireplace in the front foyer. But most of all, you'll enjoy our comfortable sleeping rooms, each one beautifully appointed with fabulous art and antiques and luxurious linens. ... more less
