We were impressed by the beautiful lobby, especially the planets of the solar system painted on the ceiling. The hotel is right in the centre of the historic district. Parking is a problem. Our room was large and clean, had 2 double beds and a sofa area to watch TV, but in serious need of redecoration. The impression is dark,... More

I have yet to decide whether my research for an in-town hotel in Cheyenne was flawed or I simply missed the signals from other reviews. We had planned a two night stay in Cheyenne and selected the Plains. Upon arrival I quickly learned, to my dismay, that street parking was all that was available overnight and that after 10am in...

We stayed here for just one night, fabulous old hotel with many features, lovely clean too. Only issue we had really was the slow service at checking in, really nice guy but since ther was a wedding on and he was the only one at the desk, we waited a while being checked in then the room was a one...

So initially, we were impressed by the beautiful lobby and great service at the front desk in this historic hotel. Then, we went to our room. It was dark and dingy and in need of updating and a good cleaning. As we inspected the room, we discovered our sheets were stained and almost every towel was stained as well. We... More

HI, thank you for taking the time to read this review. My line of work requires me to stay away from home two to three nights a week. The company pays for me to stay in various hotels across Wyoming. Every time I learn that I will be visiting Cheyenne I very seriously consider a change in career paths simply... More

All I can say is WOW. They have done an excellent job perfecting this hotel. The marble and beautiful tile work through out the hotel is exceptional. Service was great. The rooms are big and modern. We rented a suite and could have been more pleased. Bed was comfortable, room well decorated with a western them though out. My only... More

I normally don't like to give bad reviews, but this stay warranted a review. This was by far, the worst hotel stay I've ever had. It was not worth $1! The hotel itself needs a major overhaul. The cleaning service was subpar. The tub was never cleaned my entire 5-day stay! There wasn't even a phone in my room. When... More

Once again our travels took us to Cheyenne, WY. This time we got there the final day of Cheyenne Frontier Days. The town was still jumping ! The best thing about the hotel is its location and its history. We enjoyed our stay here, but the is nothing outstanding about the hotel, except what I have already said. If you... More

Overall, the stay was ok, but it helped that we got a very good deal on the room (less than $60). The inside rooms overlook other roofs or look directly at other rooms, so you might want an outside room if you like a little view. The elevator is just as historic as the hotel, so plan a little time... More

Proceed with caution if you choose to stay here. They lost our reservation as well as many others from our group (we were there for a wedding). The bathroom wasn't clean (something gross on the toilet seat), the room desperately needs to be updated, black out curtains don't work, no where to put your stuff, alarm clock was physically broken,...
