The Occidental must rank top among the historic hotels due to its virtually complete set of period furniture and interior. Everything dates from the turn of the century and is in excellent condition. Visiting the Occidental is like being in a time warp. Very comfortable rooms and an amazing bar. The hotel is worth a visit on its own but is conveniently located on the way from Yellowstone to the Blackhills / Mt Rushmore.
