My husband and I stayed again at the lovely Shakespeare Chateau this December 2017. This is our 3rd or 4th stay and it was as wonderful as ever. We have been staying in different rooms each time and we are never disappointed - this year we stayed in the newest room, the Midsummer Night Penthouse. It was a larger suite with small kitchen including a mini fridge. The bed was incredibly comfortable and the whole house was warm and inviting, especially with all of the gorgeous Christmas decorations. Isobel is continuing to renovate this beautiful home and we are always surprised and excited to see her progress. Our breakfast, a banana nut waffle with real maple syrup and fruit cup with coffee and juice, was amazing! We always enjoy our stay and look forward to it every year. Thanks for another great year, Isobel!
- 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
