A grand hotel updated for 21st century travelers. Nearby to many downtown shops, attractions and restaurants. The staff are welcoming, work hard to get the job done and genuinely care about their guests and the historic property. Pet friendly, beautiful architecture, CLC accepted. The only thing that might limit are a single tiny elevator and limited street parking. There is... More

It seems no real maintenance has been done in the 14 years or so since the renovation, with torn up carpet, small holes in the floor, and light fixtures that didn't work. The restaurant is TERRIBLE, with not only poor service and sub par food, but we were overcharged on our credit card an extra 100.00 for the experience, the... More

Located in the Historic district of Cheyenne,The Plains is well located for a number of dining opportunities as well as things to see and do. The double room had excellent queen beds, a separate dressing area with a sink, microwave and refrigerator, 27" TV and free... More

You can tell the staff has pride in working at this gorgeous historic hotel. Read up on the hotel before you arrive and learn some fun facts about the history. The grand lobby is a throw back to how important these historic hotels were back in the early 1900's. Displays along the walls is a mini museum of local arts.... More

We took late breakfast here and we were charmed by the player piano in the background. The food was good if a little quaint (hash browns were not made from grated potato but were just small chopped potato bits, fried). This seems to be the best option in the Depot part of town before the restaurants open at 11.

Had a suite. Both rooms impeccably furnished with period pieces. They blended well with the samsung flat screens with HD and huge refrigerator/microwave. The living room was well appointed including a desk. The air conditioning worked really well and the room was very quiet. The king bed was very comfortable. The shower and bathroom were upgraded and worked very well.... More

While the interiors of the hotel are a tiny bit shabby (carpet is in need of replacing), there is still a lot to recommend. We loved the historic character of the lobby and the rest of the interior. The old hex tile with carpet pattern mosaic is really neat. The location downtown across the street from the train station is... More

Great building in a very good location down town. That said, the greeting was not overly warm and inviting. We felt like a little bit of effort by some of the staff would have made the experience a great deal better. Restaurant was good.

The Plains Hotel – June 23, 2016 First issue, there is no parking. NONE! Closest parking is 3 blocks away, in a city lot. In Wyoming?!! Tried to check in 4 times before getting keys. Understandably, the first time at 2:30 was before the 3:00 p.m. check-in time. But what about the 3:30, 4;00 and 4:30 attempts? Then, neither of... More

This is the second time we have stayed at the Plains. I have traveled much of my career and have stayed in countless hotels. I am retired now and really enjoy staying in the nostalgic Hotels that have their own unique personality. This Hotel has a great location for walking to many restaurants, shops and museums in the historic downtown... More
