The majestic Shakespeare Chateau was built in 1885 for Nathan Phipps and Elmarine Ogden when St. Joseph was known as "Queen of the River Cities." High atop a bluff looking down across the city and the Missouri River, 809 Hall is one of several mansions in the National Registert 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 cherry and walnut mantles, and of course, a bust of the Bard himself above the front foyer fireplace. But most of all, you'll enjoy our comfortable sleeping rooms, each one appointed with fabulous art and antiques and luxurious linens. Amenities include gourmet breakfast, HDTV with BluRay player, free WiFi, and private baths with jetted tubs and a luxury Euro-spa shower. The Shakespeare Chateau is perfect for weddings, business meetings, family events, and more!
