I enjoy historic hotels. It helps to establish a sense of place when visiting a new destination. The Hotel Bothwell has had many lives but it is a anchor in a city that continues to evolve. The hotel is completing upgrades to its guest rooms, specifically the bathrooms. The rooms are nicely appointed though not luxurious. I like that robes...

When you come to Sedalia, Missouri you will do well to stay at Hotel Bothwell. It is the place wherein Jim Prendergast met with Harry Truman and chose him to run for the U.S. Senate. However, there were an abundance of celebrities who stayed at the luxurious hotel via the years. There are stories of "ghosts" in the hotel and...

The room was "historic" and consistent with 1927 sizes, which is very small. I had to move the desk to get into the closet and movement around the bed was mighty cramped. If I had a suitcase I'm not sure what I would have done. The bathroom cleanliness left a bit to be desired as well. There was soap film...

Stayed at the Bothwell while visiting family. The first night was good, soft comfortable beds and clean room. The second day we came back from a busy day of visiting family to find out they had switched one of the beds in our suite with what can only be described as a brick disguised as a mattress. We complained to...

We booked 2 nights here and when booking they were very accommodating and when questioned if they knew what the trail conditions were, I was given someone to get in touch with. There had been quite a bit of rain and there was flooding so we were concerned as to if a ride was possible. When we arrived we did...

We were traveling to KC and decided to stop in Sedalia for the night and try out the Hotel Bothwell as we like older properties that have been kept up well. My first impression though was, "where's the parking?" I saw a very small lot that would fit 8-10 cars ONLY is they were Smart cars for VW Beetles. When...

Arrived at 5 pm hot and tired from riding Katy Trail. Told room not ready without apology nor time that room will be ready. Desk clerk surly. It's not like we arrived early nor that we were unexpected. I haven't even seen the room yet but the service has pissed me off. Firstly there is no excuse for not having...

The last night of our vacation my wife wanted to surprise me by staying a a historic hotel on the way home. The idea was awesome, and Hotel Bothwell has the history to make it a memorable experience. The service, however, tainted what should have been the best night of our 9 day adventure. We arrived around 2:00 pm and...

We recently stayed at the Hotel Bothwell in Sedalia, MO. The room although small was very comfortable and filled with charm. Do to the hotel being extremely old I figured the rooms would be smaller in size. The staff was very accommodating. A continental breakfast is held in the lobby in the morning. It's is close to the fairgrounds (maybe...
