As the state capitol, there are many fine places to stay in Jefferson City, including the Capitol Plaza Hotel, the Cliff Manor Bed and Breakfast, and the Super 8 Motel. You can find other lodging options on tripadvisor.com.

Jefferson City is located in the center of Missouri. It's a pleasant two hour drive from the St. Louis airport (STL) and a three hour drive from the Kansas City airport (MCI). Amtrak also runs a train service along the Missouri River between Kansas City and St. Louis, with a stop in downtown Jefferson City, just a mile from many lodging options.
