I stayed here one night on business. The one and only reason you would be at this property is its location (near all things governmental in Frankfort). The room was clean and has been upgraded a bit but the couch looked as if it had been sat upon. . . a lot. Comfy king size mattress. Carpets clean but slightly...

I appreciate your feedback on your recent stay. However, I respectfully disagree that we are only a government business hotel and not a getaway destination. Downtown Frankfort is an excellent place to stay if you want to relax and get away from it all. For instance, our hotel is directly across from the Kentucky River, which features a nice park...

We stayed in this hotel for 5 days while we toured local Kentucky sights (and tasted bourbon). This hotel has seen better days. The best I can say is that our room was clean. The furniture was old, worn, chipped. The bed linens were threadbare and stained. The bed scarf had burn holes. Towels were thin and scratchy. The hall...

If you are planning to tour the distillery, this is a good hotel option. You, could literally walk to the distillery from it, if you had to, plus the downtown area is an easy walk from this hotel as well. It was nice and clean, and the free breakfast buffet was an added plus. The hotel staff were all very...

Thank you so much for taking the time to write about your experience. Our free breakfast was a new feature for us and we are so glad you liked it. We are conveniently located to Buffalo Trace and many more attractions. We do hope you come back to Frankfort again very soon!

I have been staying at the Capital Plaza for over 25 years as it is very convenient to many things in the state capital. Not a lot has changed at the hotel in those 25 years. Including the paint, the decor, the carpet, the drapes.... Ok, I am probably over exaggerating a bit, but the point is, this is a...

I stayed for one night while attending a conference at the hotel. It was clean and comfortable. The staff were very friendly. The breakfast buffet was good and free - loved the biscuits.

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...

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,...
