Katy Trail Rock Island Spur Comments
Hotel Frederick in Boonville

What a great old hotel! I can't believe the quality of this renovation. The building is very comfortable and up to date, but everything feels integrated and is consistent with the character of a century-old structure. There are so many nostalgic little details that will be familiar to anyone who lived in an old house: the panel doors and transoms, the elaborate baseboards, the weighted sash windows, corner sinks with double faucets...

The staff is very kind and let us have our room well before check-in. (A welcome courtesy on a cold, rainy day.)

Staying here has been one of the highlights of our tour. Great hotel!

It is a grand hotel. We've stayed there many times and enjoy it each time as if it were our first stay. To my knowledge, it was a firm in Kansas City that did the renovation.

The Bothwell in Sedalia is another grand old hotel that is worth your visit. It is just a few blocks from the Katy and has a nice restaurant also.

Agree with above. Also, don't miss the restaurant at Hotel Frederick. I stopped there a couple weeks ago and had a wonderful shrimp poor-boy sandwich, tomato basil bisque soup, and salad with "Dueling Berry" dressing that is literally the best salad dressing I have ever had. All for about $15. Not putting down anyone else, but why go elsewhere when you can have chef made food at a very reasonable price?

PROs: spacious rooms (can keep bikes in there).
CONs: a/c and jet tub didn't work.
Ice available through kitchen downstairs.
Offer protein at breakfast in the form of boiled eggs--important for bikers!

Is the Hotel Frederick restaurant open to public or just guests? Are they (smelly) biker friendly?
