I have stayed in the Holiday Inn Express and walked into the Isle of Capri to check out their rooms. The Hotel Frederick far exceeds either of these to hotels. Excellent on-site bar, restaurant. The morning free continental breakfast was the best I have ever had (for continental). The location is the best (in the historic downtown and on the Katy trail). Our room and bathroom was huge!!
Wonderful change of pace for a weekend night stay. We ususally stay in a chain hotel after the Mizzou football games but decided to try something different this time. The room was large and just fantastic. We enjoyed every minute of it. Beautiful and historic and there was a nice continental breakfast in the morning. We will be going back.
Always great to stay at the Hotel Frederick. Holly, the hotel manager is fabulous - knows what you need before you even ask. The lovely historic building has such character, while the rooms have wonderful modern amenities - especially the air jetted tubs - and thick terry robes, ear plugs for light sleepers, candies. The lobby balcony is a great place to have drinks and food. The breakfast is very European - home baked breads and stollens, hard boiled eggs, great selection of upscale cereals, yogurt, fresh fruit. Hotel has basement storage area for bicycles - and the Katy Trial is literally right outside the door. A casino a couple of blocks away (yet not visible from the hotel) is convenient for those who wish to partake of the games and shows. The restaurant menu is always interesting and tasty - the only downside is the restaurant staff. They seem to have difficulty managing more than a few customers at a time. But they were all young and very nice - more a training issue.
While planning out a cross country road trip we spotted this hotel just off of our drive along I-70. Everything about this hotel was wonderful. Super friendly and accommodating staff both at the front desk and the bar. We have been telling all of our friends how great our experience was and will look forward to visiting again.
We chose this lovely inn as our wedding venue because of its old-fashioned beauty and charm and its wonderful innkeepers. We couldn't have been happier. We booked all the rooms for our wedding party, so we got to experience the unique personality of each room. Ms. B and Ray have a way of making others feel comfortable and at home. The wedding was fantastic, in large part due to Ms. B, who acted almost as another mother, bustling about behind the scenes to help out and make sure everything was perfect. We forgot a few items, and she was generous enough to lend us what we needed to keep everything running smoothly. Several of my guests commented on how beautiful the property is, and my early-arrivals loved the tour Ms. B gave them. When she shows her rooms, it's obvious how much she has personally invested in each one by her passion and excitement as she reveals each of their stories. Downstairs the next morning, we were served a delicious breakfast (my husband requests that I put extra emphasis on how yummy the breakfast was) with our wedding party. It was so nice to walk out to the dock and enjoy the gorgeous property one last time before saying our goodbyes.
This was not our first stay at the Frederick and it won't be our last, already planning an October stay. I almost hate to say to much about the Frederick, we would like to keep this gem to our selfves..... Frederick is one of those place that once you have been there for the first time the experience keeps calling you back....maybe it is just us be we love the hotel, staff and the town of Boonville. Another perfect stay, great staff, rooms wonderful and the foof perfect. Molly should be proud of her staff and the job that they do. To us going to the Frederick and Boonville is like coming home and we always hate to leave. Gary
Ray and Barbara were outstanding hosts! We arrived on Friday and immediately knew we made the right choice for a "get away" weekend. You could not ask for more gracious hosts. We enjoyed the "tour" of the property in the off-road vehicle along with the history of the families. We felt extremely privileged to see and hear the restored Nova come to life. It was a great way to finish off the get away weekend. Breakfasts were fantastic! the Starlight room was the highlight of the trip. The private "hidden" video room was a relaxing way to unwind. Before our departure on Sunday morning Ray and Barbara saw us off after a relaxing conversation. This hidden gem is the perfect place to relax - not to far from Columbia but far enough to enjoy the simpler things in life. We definitely will be returning to enjoy the Inn and the company of Ray and Barbara.
I felt right at home as soon as I was greeted at the door by Ms Barb! From the tour of the fantastic Starlite Theater room to the amazing breakfast the next morning this B&B is truly a hidden jewel of Hallsville, MO. I do plan to make time to come stay at the VCI in the near future! My girlfriend weekend was so much fun because of our choice to stay here.
This was one of my favorite stays on our 6-night katy trail trip. The restaurant is fabulous!!! I highly recommend this hotel - friendly staff, clean accommodations, and loved the historic nature of it. I also loved the Zuma soaps!!
Stayed for wedding anniversary trip. Actually our second time staying there. The restoration work has been done well and I like the way they have modernized the rooms. The continental breakfast was decent but a little picked over by the time we made to breakfast. Overall an excellent place!
I almost felt guilty carrying my cell phone into The Frederick, it did not belong. We had time to talk, with each other, with other guests and with the incredibly friendly staff. Quiet places to sit and read...real books. The antique accents, the solid hardwoods, the attention to detail in the rooms work together to bring that blood pressure down. Haven't you earned a stay at The Frederick? We are coming back.
Ms. "B" took care of us as if we were her own. The Cabin was exactly what we were looking for and was very clean and well kept. The service and cuisine were excellent. I will stay there every time I visit Columbia.
I booked this hotel for an overnight stop on a business trip to St. Louis. I liked this property, and the whole idea of the Katy Trail, that I am thinking about planning a whole vacation around it. The rooms are newly renovated with a combination of antiques and modern accents. The staff are all friendly and helpful, and we enjoyed the drinks and food in the restaurant.
We stayed at Hotel Frederick because we were going to a wedding in Columbia and wanted to try something a little different. We really enjoyed the room and the amenities. The products in the bathroom were lovely and the staff was very helpful. We had an eventful weekend so unfortunately we did not get to spend much time in the hotel, but we will likely be back!
Really lliked our room, the jacuzzi tub was wonderful, but we thought it was slightly over priced with there not being any major attractions in the area. We also thought for the price that the continental breakfast would include at least a few hot items there was only a microwave for warming bagels or oatmeal.
We had a delightful stay at VCI. The room was beautiful, as was the house. Beautiful grounds out in the country. Barbara welcomed us with a snack and some Amish candy, as well as a cup of tea. Lovely hospitality. She gave us a tour, telling us about some of her antique pieces. Being antique hunters, we enjoyed this. A nice common area was available to us and breakfast was terrific.
