It was an interesting experience. The lobby, restaurant and bar all look very nice. While waiting in line to check in I listened as the women at the desk kept repeating to each person who was checking in how to open the door to your hotel room. Seems you would correct the problem rather than have them repeat this over and over. Doors are metal and make a very loud vibrating bang when you shut them, no matter how quietly you try to do so. Not good when people are trying to sleep. When we entered the room I thought I had stepped into a time warp. It was clean, but princess style furniture and a pink tile (from floor to ceiling) bathroom was not what I was expecting from the billboards that had been enticing us all the way across the state of Wyoming. I don't even think those photos were taken at the hotel.
We went to the bar for a pre-dinner drink and we found it jam packed with conventioners on one end, who had re-arranged the furniture and taken everything that wasn't nailed down. The other end was roped off for a "woman's group" that was meeting there. They had ONE bar tender and no waitresses. The room had to have 60+ people in it. A very large man, who appeared to be the manager, came through the room several times, went over to the woman's group and then left again. This bar tender was clearly under water but did any help come or did the manager lift a finger to assist? Uh, no. And that was what bothered us the most. They had a HUGE dining room that was virtually empty. We couldn't understand why they hadn't roped off a section of that and let the seemingly well-staffed dining room handle the conventioners or the women's group. We left the bar and had dinner in the brightly lit dining room. The meal was acceptable, something that would be suitable for convention attendees. After dinner we returned to the bar thinking we would have an after-dinner drink in the beautiful leather chairs which were now back in their rightful places. There were just 5 male patrons sitting at bar and no one else in the large room except the one bartender, which seemed appropriate for this crowd. We were not waited on, had to go to the bar to get the drinks and the bartender never came back. We went back up to the bar, paid and headed for our room. We turned on the flat screen TV (which seemed out of place in the room that was in all other respects teleported from 1968) and noticed that the screen was convex, making everything appear larger on either side. We decided we'd just go to sleep. The beds were nice and comfy. But at about 7:00 in the morning we were woken by a bugle playing Revelry. The conventioners, perhaps? Oh, and the constant loud banging and vibrating of the metal doors with the problem door locks. We were happy when we drove away and wished we'd spent our money elsewhere.
