Beautiful historic hotel with gorgeous furnishings ! Service a little to be desired from evening staff Waited almost two hours for service call. Apologies the next day and two free complimentary breakfasts although the sleep Lost didn't make up for it.

I booked this hotel due to other TA reviews, as it seemed to give an old west charm which we wanted to capture on our trip. The hotel doesn't disappoint, and the lobby area, lift, staircase, landings all give that feel. The hotel is laid out the way it was built, and I would expect to modernise the rooms would... More

The location was perfect, nearly everything in walking distance. The hotel itself was amazing. Truly one of a kind, from the floors to door handles and fixtures to the ceiling and even the elevator. As with most anything with a lot of history, there were creaky floors, low shower heads and bipolar water temperatures. Unfortunately, judging by the shampoo left... More

We were amazed to see this place when we arrived. Refurbished and restyled with period furniture and art. Rooms were clean and updated. We sat with the owner, Astrid, as she told us about the history of the building and the hotel's many important visitors. Loved the art work hung in the common areas and restaurant. Definitely would stay again!... More

It has many interesting and quirky details, like carvings, paintings, and sculptures throughout. my room had a great view of downtown cheyenne, and the restaurant had good food. the staff... More

With all the choices that you have today, like micro hotels, new lavishing 10 story buildings with state-of-the-art technology, it is good to find a great historic locations that can provide you with comfort and entertainment. After reading some of the reviews one could say that they are being bias. Of course you're not going to have all the lavish... More

The Plains Hotel is elegant and full of old western charm, from the huge foyer to the bar and the old style rooms, it re-lives in that 1800's period. Check in was easy and friendly and the rooms were clean and comfortable, for older style rooms. The detail in the decoration surrounding the hotel is elegant and of the period.... More

This is not the nicest hotel I have ever stayed in, but it is one of the coolest. As the name implies, this is a historic hotel and you can tell right away. The lobby is right out of the last, the elevator is probably original or close to. The rooms are nice and have been recently remodeled. The attached... More

I love the history of this place. The lobby is wonderful. Desk was very helpful. Wait staff at restaurant was not customer friendly. The cheapest room is small, with a very small bath. Recommend a larger room away from the street, which was noisy.
