Our wedding reception was held in the beautiful historic Hotel Bothwell. Our bridal party took advantage of everything the hotel offers during our wedding weekend: manicures and pedicures at the Spa, lunch at the Ivory Grille, watching the game in the Truman Room, and a slumber party in a suite. Our wedding was a dream come true and the Hotel Bothwell made our dream a reality!

We were promised a honeymoon gift that never came, but other than that, it was a wonderful place. The desk clerks are unable to use the system, and consistently over-book, lose reservations, and mix up rooms. I had to correct the reservations twice, each time taking about a few hours, and in the end the rooms were still confused, with one guest losing their room. That said, we did not pay for our honeymoon suite and the hotel was so lovely. It's also a great value for your money, with a wonderful ballroom.
