I was disappointed when I saw this property was downtown in an older building. Parking was free , close , and safe. The friendly front desk person checked me in instantly and had me on my way. The room was really nice. It had a nice mixture of historic and modern. I'd stay again.

I had the pleasure of spending 4 nights in this lovely property. It was built in the 1920's and must have been magnificent in its time. It is still beautiful and has all of the modern conveniences of today. Check-in and out was smooth. Everyone I came into contact with was very friendly and accommodating. I ate in the hotel's...

I've had two occasions to stay at the Bothwell in the past year and have really loved it. There are a lot of lovely details to the building itself, from the cool neon lettered awning above the front entrance to the details of the lobby sitting area. Rooms are smallish, but furnished quite nicely. The bed(s) tend to be softer... More

We love staying at the Bothwell. It's clean and comfortable. The staff are always very friendly and helpful. My only complaint this time is because they were setting up for their Easter brunch buffet, they cleared the coffee and pastries away from the continental breakfast area a bit early in my opinion. We were only able to grab a quick... More

Enough good things can not be said about this beautiful and affordable hotel. My team and I spent 3 nights a week for the past 7 weeks and enjoyed every night. They have some of the most comfortable beds we have ever slept on in a hotel. And the elegant ambience takes you back to an Era when each guest... More

This is a very cool, historic hotel that has seen presidents and movie stars cross its threshold. It also has a very good restaurant. I would highly recommend it except for one problem: it had what was probably the worst hotel bed I've ever had in 25 years of extensive travel. The bed was so soft and of such poor... More

The room, while small due to the age, was comfortable and clean. The bed was cozy but the room did get a little warm with the thick comfortable. The thing that impressed me most was that I had left a valuable necklace in a drawer when I left. I called them when I got home and the front desk said... More

Reasonably well kept and renovated hotel. It was small, very clean, great restaurant, and the staff very friendly. We really enjoyed our stay. Parking is tight and the hotel was built for a time people were much smaller, but it was great. I'd stay there again in a heartbeat!

Wow what a cool place. Everyone was so nice and helpful. It was clean and beautiful. The food was soooo good and just the whole downtown made for a fun night. We will stay here again, maybe with the family next time

The property location is terrific downtown and has unique charm and warmth when you walk in the lobby. Both the restaurant and hotel are both ranked #1 in this town and I see why. The rooms are getting new carpet and update according to the staff in the coming weeks. I will be back as it is beautiful inside. So... More
