The Historic Plains Hotel

Wyoming, Wild West

The hotel

Part of Cheyenne’s rich heritage, The Historic Plains Hotel takes you back to the exciting Victorian days of the Wild West. As you enter this National Historic Landmark, established back in 1911, you’re bathed in light from the spectacular mission art panel skylight above the beautiful lobby, a space where tiles, mahogany, leather, brass, and marble come together to make a truly grand entrance. What’s outside’s pretty special too, with your spot near Cheyenne Depot Plaza (which plays host to events, concerts, and a railroad museum), and plenty of dining venues and shops in the surrounding streets. Decorated with artwork and photography by local artists, the hotel reflects the beauty and culture you’ll see as you explore Wyoming – after you’ve tucked into the complimentary Continental breakfasts they lay out each morning of course.

Very quiet place, and loved the vintage vibe. The man at the counter was fantastic with all his knowledge of the history of the hotel! A few spooky things happened too!! Be sure to read up on why the elevator is so small!

We loved this hotel, the room was clean and spacious. The beds were comfortable and the hotel was quiet. The historical charm was amazing and the location can’t be beat! The stay did come with free breakfast we did find it odd they had potatoes and sausage but no eggs lol

This hotel is beautiful!!! Read less

Great history and furnishings. Breakfast buffet was decent, 6 out of 10, if 9 is an Embassy Suites breakfast. The ambiance and furnishings make up for anything that it might lack. Good value for the money.
