Owner description: Welcome to The Henderson Castle, the most popular inn in Kalamazoo. Whether you're local or coming from Grand Rapids, Detroit, Lansing, South Bend or Chicago, you'll find us to be the best destination for your anniversary, birthday, wedding, graduation or romantic getaway. Situated in the historic West Main Hill neighborhood, you're minutes away from the theatres, shopping and vibrant night life of downtown Kalamazoo, but secluded enough to enjoy a quiet night free from the noise of the city. When you're with us, you'll have a royal experience. Wake up to an incredible breakfast prepared by our French chef François Moyet. Get a massage, facial or manicure in our day spa. Soak in our rooftop hot tub while taking in the best view of downtown Kalamazoo that's available. Stay for dinner at our restaurant and indulge in the finest French food southwest Michigan has to offer. Why settle for a hotel - instead experience luxury fit for a King or Queen. Visit us for a Tour and wine tasting and experience the History of the Castle and the life of the Henderson's.. In addition to the inn, restaurant and spa, we offer a banquet hall and ball room that can accomodate ceremonies, corporate meetings, holiday parties, family events, baby showers and more. Our lodging is available per night, for a weekend or could even be arranged for extended stay. Our daily tours, princess tea parties, murder mystery dinner party and high tea are fun things to do in Kalamazoo. If you'd like to book a room, make dinner reservations or just have a question, don't hesitate to contact us. The Henderson Castle Inn is here for every type of guest. Relax in our ADA accessible guest room, the Library Room, featuring an accessible shower with grab bars & handheld shower-head. A ramp wraps around the rear of the Castle and can be accessed by using the Gallery entrance to allow accessibility to the 1st floor. Unfortunately the 2nd and 3rd floors can be accessed by stairs only. While the restaurant is located primarily on the 1st floor, events are sometimes scheduled in the 3rd floor Ballroom.

We went to Mother’s Day Brunch this year. Not only did we have bad service, but the food was just OK. For three people and drinks the total price tag was over $300. This experience was not worth half that.

I have not yet spent the night, but I have attended multiple events and I plan to go to more in the future! The food is absolutely delicious and definitely worth the price. The atmosphere is intimate and timeless. You would never expect a place like this in the middle of Kalamazoo. I greatly enjoy spending time here.

The historic Henderson Castle is a beautiful place. It is very neat to hear the history and tour the grounds. The bartender was fun and friendly and gave us a bit of history on the castle. The breakfast in the morning was delightful. Our room was spacious and comfortable. However, the room was HOT. Being on the third floor, it was very hot in there. There is an air conditioner window unit and it was not working enough to cool down the room. There was a fan provided. Other than that, our stay at the castle was great.
