If you are looking for fluffy robes, a concierge, and an in-room fridge, this is not your place. If you want honest and respectful restoration of a historic building, along with a good bed and plenty of space and hot water, this is an excellent choice. We stayed in the Cottonwood Suite for three nights and used The Occidental as a base to explore the Bighorms, Fort Phil Kearny, Fetterman Site, regional museums, etc. There is also a lovely trail along the creek out into the country that you can access out the front door. We had dinner in the Virginian twice, and had excellent service and food both evenings. On Thursdays, The Saloon is a meeting place for local bluegrass musicians to jam, and Dawn will save a table for you. That was well worth the stay all by itself.
