First off, the owner is an extremely wonderful host. Upon our visit we were given an amazing tour of the estate, which showcased it's beautiful woodwork and wonderful stained glassed windows. The rooms are massive and all 3 have their uniqueness to them which adds to the beauty of the mansion. The Sweetheart Package was an amazing deal and the meals were just as wonderful. I honestly don't doubt that I'll be making a return to the Shakespeare Chateau in the future.
- 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
