We spent a pleasant night at the Plains recently. They have done a nice job of preserving the history of the hotel...and there is a lot of history at that place. Be sure to take some time to wander around the public areas (first and second floors) to learn about the hotel. Our room was spacious and we'd stay there... More

We usually try to get a room at the Plains when we are in Cheyenne. We like to be on the Lincoln Highway and across from the Old Union Pacific Railroad Depot. It is also conveniently located to the over 100 years old St. Mark's Episcopal Church where we like to worship when in Cheyenne on a Sunday. We can... More

I experienced some minor body damage to my vehicle and the high winds of Wyoming forced me to have it repaired in Cheyenne. I heard of this old majestic hotel and it piqued my curiosity thus I chose to stay here. The entire staff from the General Manager to the girl who cleaned my room were as gentile and sincere...

I was surprised by the hotel décor and the wait staff. I had a wonderful experience and the food at the Capitol Grille was perfect. I recommend the Green Chile soup, It was one of the best bowls I had experienced before. The bar tending was superb and I try enjoyed the magic that was by far very entertaining. The... More

The parking here is a challenge since there is no on site parking. Street or municipal parking lot (three blocks away) are available. The hotel parking lot is also three blocks away by the railroad yard. It is unpaved and unlit. The biggest problem here is the staff. I read wonderful reviews here about one clerk. I found her cold... More

An overnight stop which was delightful! The 1911 gem has beautiful period time furniture, stained glass ceilings and windows, tiled floors and western ambiance! The best part was the accommodating, friendly staff in all areas of the hotel. When greeted we were immediately taken care of and when in the restaurant the staff was fantastic! Our dinner huge and delicious!... More

My husband and I love to sample historic hotels, so when we made an unplanned stop in Cheyenne, we decided to try The Historic Plains Hotel. I was a bit concerned when I called for reservations and was told that the room rate was $89--I wondered what condition the property would be in. We were pleasantly surprised with our King... More

We live in Cheyenne and have always enjoyed going to the Plains . My husband is disabled and cannot go to restaurants anymore so we order out a lot.
