Experience the Education and Adventure of the Kentucky River
Located in the heart of downtown Frankfort, the Capital Plaza Hotel sits right on the river. If you make the 65 mile boat trip from the Ohio River to Frankfort you might consider spending the night at the Capital Plaza Hotel. We are located across from Riverview park and the Frankfort Boat Club. We offer a special rate for our Boaters throughout the season. From the thrill of a Rockin' Thunder jet boat ride, a new kayak excursion or to the laid back educational experience of the historical Bourbon boat tour, there is something for everyone on the Kentucky River.
