First stop on our honeymoon road trip ... it’s an older hotel with a lot of charm ... room was super clean, staff friendly, didn’t hit the bar but the included breakfast was on point! Within walking distance to several restaurants/bars ... perfect place to stay in the heart of Cheyenne

Dearest Honeymooners, I am so blown away that you would take the time from your honeymoon to send this very lovely high rating of our stewardship of Cheyenne's biggest historic Plains Hotel and its staff! We all believe that what goes round comes around. This bodes so beautifully for your well being health and marital Bliss! PS Check out the work of a very famous artist James Montgomery Flagg.

I booked three nights for two rooms after reading the hotel web page and review. It is also in a good location for our visit. We arrived early at 1:30 PM and given rooms in 4th floor. Both rooms looked old with the original and rusty wash basin. We went out for lunch and visited our friend. When we returned after dinner and get ready for bed, my friend found ant under thr pillow. I asked to change room. The front desk clerk was very polite and upgraded us to a large room with sitting area in second and third floor. The rooms were redecorated with new vanity. The lobby and second floor had some original decoration and display. They are quite nice and reflected the period. Dinner was fine. It is close to the airport. Talking to the desk clerk and I found out this 1911 built hotel was idle for 50 years and it was bought by the current owner five years ago. It is still being updated.

Dear Guest, I circled back to our full time monthly bug exterminator and found this ant, to be very unlikely. In a bed more unlikely. First report of such.....but we'll retrain front desk to view your room with you to assure you our dear guest. Astrid The hotel has been open full time except for 2 years 50 years ago. I'll retrain the front desk as it is a wonder and a treasure!

If you are looking for a hotel that's virtually indistinguishable from anything else on the highway, this ain't for you. But if you want to step back over a hundred years and see what a luxury hotel looked like in 1911, you might just like it. Great restaurant is attached for dinner and drinks. Also the best hotel buffet breakfast is included.

We stayed one night (Sept. 22, 2019) as part of our bus tour to Yellowstone. I had read that a lot of money had been spent on renovations, but apparently it was all spent in the lobby area. We were on 4th floor and had a double bed. The bathroom had an antique bathtub and lav., that had been painted a light purple that didn't match the green tile on the walls and floor.When you looked in the sink it was an abyss. Dropping anything in would have been gone forever or required extensive plumbing work to extricate. My wife and I could not go around the room at the same time because the room was that small. We had 14 days of apparrel since we were on a two week trip, so our luggage was pretty heavy, and had no place to put it in the room. The elevator (1) held two people and two suitcases (not comfortably) and were in continuous demand. Upon any complaints, the desk manager could only spout "I can cancel your reservation if you want" knowing that would or should have quelled the complaints.. We had to manhandle our own luggage the following morning which was tough on a lot of us as most are senior citizens. In summary, I definately would not reccommend this hotel to anyone as they were very rude to our tour director after we had spent nine hours on a tour bus. Stop in and look at the artifacts and nice lobby, but don"t stay there as The Plains Hotel quickly goes from historical to hysterical!

Dear West Virginian, Thank you for taking the time to support our efforts in this very large Edwardian historic hotel from 1911! I will circle back to the front desk and make sure that requests are dealt with in a positive manner. I did hear about your tour leader... That being said I want all to know the rates for our historic hotel are about half that of a 100 year old historic hotel in America. We are spending millions of dollars for guest comfort (new mattresses, Fiber optics WIFI and constant maintenance). However, this national landmark also needs protection prefereably with few taxpayer dollars. This is where you our faithful PATRON/GUEST comes in to protect this treasure. All our beds are Queen or king not full or "double". As in all historic hotels rooms were sized for every pocketbook. Ours range from from 250SF to over 700 sf ( Presendential Suite). The bathrooms in the 1928 annex is original to 1920s. Most of our guest appreciate that it's unique, and love the price. Group rates start well below $100 and include a scratch made warm breakfast. I hope you encounter your highest expectations as you wander in wonder! Best, Astrid
