My husband and I checked into a King size bedroom for Christmas while visiting family, and were just blown away. We love historic buildings, of which this is one (newspaper clipping on the wall states it was opened in 1927), but has modern features such as central heat and air, but still maintains the historic feel.

Enjoyed our stay in this stately old building! The feather topped mattress was the bomb and having space to roam was nice! We ate at the Ivory Grille and the food was great and the decor was truly a step back in time! The bathroom was a little cramped and shower small, but if we had wanted big and luxurious... More

I almost feel this review is cheating as we only live 30 minutes away, but sometimes it's worth it just to get away. Very charming, welcoming, and beautifully restored. If I had to find a fault, the rooms are fairly small, but when this place was built, they ALL were.

Shower is from the 1920s and it performed like it, scalding hot to ice cold several times. Small rooms and I had the nicer suite. Restaurant was supposed to the best in Sedalia, then they are in trouble. Bad tough food, old bread, waitress spilled wine all over us and the service was slow. NO PLACE to park your vehicle,...

We spent two nights in The Bothwell Hotel. It is a wonderful place to stay in Sedalia. The rooms are very well appointed and comfortable, with beds as soft as a cloud. Everything was clean and well maintained. The staff is expertly trained and made sure every need was immediately addressed. The hotel is charming, with a lot of history.... More

Recently traveled here for a family wedding. This hotels is very charming! Beautiful historic lobby. Check in was simple and easy. Our rooms were quaint and nice a little on the small side but with the times that the hotel was built I'm sure this was standard. I will have to say that the bed was one of the most... More

However, we have a total of 7 room types ranging from original rooms to suites. I hope that when you are back in Sedalia you will have the opportunity... More

A historic hotel with a beautifully restored and very elegant lobby. Located close to the Katy Trail and very biker friendly with bike storage facilities. Stayed in a two room family suite with a queen bed in each room. Suite was very clean, quiet and comfortable with all the necessary amenities. Bathroom was small but functional. Has a highly rated...

Small room, even smaller bathroom, but quiet, clean, and interesting. The staff was very nice and helpful. It was sad to see so many beautiful old buildings, in the area, falling into disrepair. Thankfully someone had the foresight to, at least try, to bring dignity back to the Bothwell.

I booked our stay through a website for families visiting Whiteman Air Force Base.
