We took the train from St Louis to Independence for a weekend getaway. We arranged with the owners of the hotel to pick us up from the train station. A very nice couple own/run the hotel. It is very clean and brightly decorated. There are many restaurants, small shops and a movie theatre a short walk from the hotel. We plan on returning in the near future.
