I wish we could have stayed longer, because there are shops and art galleries that we missed, all within walking distance of this hotel. The location couldn't be better. Walking into the impressive lobby is a step back in time. The ceiling is gorgeous, and the original woodwork and tile are intact. The front desk staff greeted us warmly, and... More

We stayed here while visiting for Cheyenne Frontier Days (CFD) and the location was great. Being in town and close to restaurants and the shuttle service was convenient. However, our room and bathroom was a bit outdated and the noise from the street was horrible. It seemed like the walls/windows were paper thin. Our room for our family of four... More

The Historic Plains Hotel is located right in the center of downtown Cheyenne. It is close to shopping and several eating establishments. The lobby is welcoming and nicely decorated. The staff were friendly and helpful. The onsite restaurant and bar was comfortable and the food was good. My room was on the small side but comfortable. I chose the Plains... More

We started going to the Plains Hotel in downtown Cheyenne because it's dog friendly. It's like going to a museum, with Native American art work, archival photography, a great gift shop, restaurant, and an elevator purposely built small so cowboys couldn't get their horses up to their rooms. Close to a great western wear store, cinema, and plenty of bars,... More

I wanted to love this hotel. It's location to where we needed to be was perfect. It's noise level not so good. The maids spent the better part of the day blasting music while cleaning the whole 2nd floor. When they weren't laughing and talking to each other across the hallway that is. My son was sick and needed to... More

I knew Cheyenne was above 6000ft. What I didn't know was how close it brought me to heaven. The location of the white plains hotel offered stunning views of the city. The Native American decor was unforgettable. Although there was no fitness center, the stairs provided a unique form of exercise. The fully opening windows in our room provided a... More

I was booked at this property on business by my employer, so I did not have my choice of where I was staying. That being said, it was a mixed experience, some bad, some good, so it balanced out to average. I had a 3rd floor room, near the back of the hotel. There was no view to speak of,... More

The building is historic and 103 years old. The lobby is awesome and both the restaurant and bar were awesome with great friendly service. The hotel service was equally as good. The room was a bit small but was very clean. Linens and towels were spotless. I would rather stay here than a holiday inn anyday. There is also quite... More
