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.

We were traveling to visit relatives and decided to stop for a couple days in Cheyenne. The Plains Hotel is located in town and affords lots of walkability. It is a historic building so the rooms are small. However, the lobby is nice and informative. Some interesting artifacts are placed around the first and second floor. Had to ask for any… Read more

It is a historic building so the rooms are small. However, the lobby is nice and informative. Some interesting artifacts are placed around the first and second floor. Had to ask for any information we wanted at the front desk (not offered at check-in) but they responded to all requests. The bellman was friendly and informative. Read less

If Harry P. Hynds were alive today and checked into the historic Plains Hotel, he would recognize and appreciate the iconic masterpiece that he built nearly a hundred years ago - and perhaps agree that time has been a friend to this place whose authenticity to the Old West is nearly spiritual. And that friend has a name -- Astrid. She's the owner today who likely tops Mr. Hynds passion and delivers on the promises he engraved into the ceiling of the place - "Welcome Pardner," and "Nothing but the Best." We spent two delightful days in Cheyenne recently, and made ourselves at home at the Plains Hotel, and were indulged by its comfort, history, character and downright friendliness. This place is truly special, far beyond the ordinary. I highly recommend a stay.

This is the best eclectic western style hotel we've ever been in. I found this hotel in knew it was a one-of-a-kind. I love the decor and the lobby is glazing. The wigwam lounge was very relaxing and the bartender was awesome! She made me a special drink really really good. Love the pictures and the special old West feel. Elevator was really awesome. The desk clerk, Savannah how much was very sweet and gave us an upgrade to a king suite when she heard my husband was in the military. The king suite was roomy and really comfortable. You had dinner at the restaurant in the hotel. The manager was name is , Jamie, came up and introduced herself and was very sweet. Our server, Rae told us about the sweetheart package and Jamie upgraded us. It included a special Valentine's four-course dinner, champagne, chocolate covered strawberries in the room and breakfast in bed the next morning. It was a great deal. We will definitely stay again! I recommend this hotel, lounge, and restaurant to everyone coming to Cheyenne! We've been to many different hotels and this is definitely my favorite. Wyoming with my last state and now I have been hit All 48 continental United States, so I've definitely been to a few hotels in my day. I can't say enough great things about this place. Read less
