I loved the charm of this hotel! My husband and I look forward to staying here again. The hotel has a very Western feel, which is perfect for a visit to Cheyenne. The bathrooms might be "dated", but that's what I love about the hotel. It's a historic hotel and retains the charm of its history.

The Historic Plains Hotels lives up to its name-historic. The building has a grand lobby, which can also be viewed from the second floor. The art work hanging, the tiled floors and the furnishings throughout the hall give an old west feeling. The room was clean. The front desk attendant wasn't impressive, didn't move the line quickly, didn't activate our... More

We book through an online site and there were no problems. Arrive 2 hours prior to check in and Susan in the restaurant was wonderful!! The young lady at the front desk was less than helpful. Perhaps a bad day. Asked "Do you have any literature about the hotel we could have?" A very short "no". All of this young... More

Excellent historic restored hotel. Older property that has ongoing renovation. They only real problem is the small old elevator that the owner is trying to address but I am sure the cost is a major factor. The staff was very friendly and the rooms were clean.

The hotel has an interesting history and full of stories and historical pieces. The rooms are dated and walls thin, but it was a fun place to stay in Cheyenne and made you feel like you were in the Wild West! Lots of reviews mention the elevator being slow.....its part of the charm and is original to the building:)

The place was clean and roomy but when we arrived almost at midnight we ran into drunk guests at the lobby area so they were yelling and they insulted us with no reaction from the staff. So I didn't feel safe while I was there, Other problem was there was any parking service there so you have to drop your... More

I lived this sweet, historic and comfortable place. I had arrived late after a long drive and the front desk agent was kind and made me smile. The room was spacious, so clean, and overall such an enjoyable time. I had to hit the road, but I lingered some because I hated to leave. Bonus!: The city's Farmer's Market is... More

I enjoy staying in the grand old hotels of the West and the historic Plains Hotel of Cheyenne is certainly one of them. I was in a quandary about where to stay on my way to Denver and found the Plains Hotel in downtown Cheyenne. It was so nice that I decided to extend my stay. Tasha at the front... More

As other travelers wrote, this hotel is very conveniently located, in the heart of downtown Cheyenne, where we can find restaurants and small boutiques wiht interesting things to buy. The hotel's lobby is magnificent. That being said, yes, the rooms could use some serious updating. Nothing's perfect, but this hotel is really worth a stay.
