I've always loved Sedalia and this is definately one of the coolest buildings in the older part of town. It's cool to see what the hippest and wealthiest part of the country was. It's the Palo Alto of the second half of the 19th century. I stayed here because I had to meet a client and the location is perfect.... More

This is an elegant hotel from the old school of elegance. It is really a marvelous place. The name "Bothwell" I learned has quite the historical notoriety in this town as he played a key role in putting Sedalia on the map. This hotel is one of his crown jewels for this town, My wife and I were biking the... More

We reserved a 2 bedroom suite that was very nice. It has both new amenities and has preserved some old ones that are unique. This was our second stay at the Bothwell and we enjoyed both times. We enjoyed dining at the Ivory Grille while we were there.

I pulled in at 1 am to check in. Looking around, I saw pawn shops, jails, court buildings, the front door was locked...I thought I made a huge mistake. (Blame my pre-judging on growing up in a major metropolitan city. When I went to my room, I was pleasantly surprised. The hotel was clean, room was well arranged, and staff... More

Great clean corner room after a long day biking on the KTY Rail Trail. Nice furnishings. Wonderful small town charm. Modern elevator. Bathroom was a little dated but serviceable. Good breakfast came with our groups stay, Definitely a unique experience, You can picture Harry Truman staying here.

A dated nostalgic trip to the grand hotel days. Best city location on the downtown square. Original everything including the plumbing, elevator, and service. I prefer a firm bed and theirsThe bed was one of the softest I have ever slept on

Charming, historic and comfortable. Bed was great and the room very clean with great views of downtown. Although just passing through Sedalia on business, we were won over. Some room and bathroom features were not state of the art, but that didn't dim our stay in the least. This is not a cookie cutter hotel. If you appreciate great hospitality... More

Hotel Bothwell is in the heart of Sedalia, with all the charm of the last 100 years. The ambiance is yester-year. Old paintings, old furniture, a return to the good times of the past. Therein lies the appeal--and the problems. While the rooms are very nice, they are also very tight. No counter space in the bath. Old fixtures (like... More
