This hotel was more than adequate for our one night stay. Our room was on the 7th floor overlooking the city. If you had a room on the other side, it would overlook the Kentucky river. The room was spacious and comfortable. The windows opened, which is a plus for me. We were there just before Christmas, so there were...

All summer we have been bringing people to Frankfort by excursion boat where we all stay at Capital Plaza. We have always found it clean and very comfortable. All our passengers give very good feedback to us about the service and the rooms. The included breakfast buffet is well done. We highly recommend the Capital Plaza to anyone looking for...

Thank you for the comments. We are so glad that you liked the hotel! The Rockin' Thunder groups were a lot of fun to work with and we so look forward to more tours next year and adding more entertainment and activities for your groups. Have a great winter and we will see you in the spring.

Just spent the weekend at the Capital Plaza and I can say I thoroughly enjoyed it. It is not a new hotel which adds to the ambience. I would recommend a small fridge in the rooms. It is located near the Buffalo Trace Distillery which was the reason for our trip. The breakfast buffet was not bad and the hotel...

Very happy to hear you enjoyed your stay. Frankfort is very close to a lot of history, the bourbon trail and many other activities. We look forward to seeing you again real soon.

I just arrived at the hotel (10/22/15 @ 630am). The hotel clerk had a room available but said she couldn't check me in without charging me because check in time was 300pm. Just what I wanted to hear after a long drive. So I'm stuck waiting around until my meeting at 800am. I'll let you know how the rest of...

Thank you for your comments. I am so sorry about your experience. Reservations are guaranteed up until 7am so 6:30 am is still considered the previous day. However, I am certain we could have let you check in before 3pm once housekeeping was able to turn rooms. I have spoken to our staff on how to handle such a request...

We stayed three days at Capital Plaza while attending an event at the Kentucky History Center just a few blocks away. We had a well equipped accessible room -- but not sure they should put a handicap person on the sixth floor at the end of the hall. We had a great view from our window. Breakfast was great: sausage,...

This hotel is in serious need of renovation. The best part of this hotel is the waterfall in the lobby. The vending/soda machines were out of order on the 6th and 7th floors. I need bottled water for cpap machine but could not find any. I asked at the front desk before I went to my room and was told...

Great location for visiting downtown. 3 miles from Buffalo Trace distillery. Descent running out the door -at least on a weekend when the state is shut down. Amazingly inexpensive wine in the hotel bar. Breakfast buffet is standard, filling unimpressive complimentary hotel fare. Yes, I would stay here again

We will continue to try new items and look for ways to set us apart from other hotel breakfasts. It is my hope you find a more impressive breakfast selection...

This is not a place you want to stay. A fruit tray was served to the guests during a ceremony here and every one of the strawberries had mold on them. In the room, we only had one roll of toilet paper on the roll and it was only about 1/4 full. We had to go downstairs in order to...

We stayed for four nights to attend a wedding. Both rooms were clean and comfortable. The location was close to the venue for reception, Buffalo Trace Distillery, and the hotel provided a free breakfast. The staff was outstanding. They were accommodating and extremely pleasant from the front desk check in to restaurant and housekeeping staff. The area around the hotel...

Hotel bar nice and check in very good. Breakfast kind of lacking in items. When we returned after a long day, our keys would not work. Had them rekeyed twice and still nothing. A worker came up and none of the service keys worked either. He had to break the lock inorder to let us in-there were no other rooms...
