Where to Stay in Cheyenne
It’s easy to find at least two or three cheap hotel deals in Cheyenne in locations convenient to each of its outlying districts, but well over half of the city’s hotels, motels and B&Bs are located along a roughly one-and-a-half mile stretch between the intersection of Interstates 25 and 80 and Downtown Cheyenne. The major thoroughfare through this hotel strip is US Route 30, also called West Lincolnway near the highway and East Lincolnway near Downtown.
All of these hotels are within short driving distance of the numerous points of interest in Downtown Cheyenne, and some are even within easy walking distance. Prominent attractions in this area include the Wyoming State Capitol Building, the Wyoming State Museum and the Nelson Museum of the West, a more than 11,000-square-foot museum with exhibits chronicling the American West.
Cheyenne Hotel Tips
Cheyenne lacks the large five-star hotels of many other state population centers and capitals, but it has a few exceptionally elegant and comfortable bed and breakfast inns. These charming accommodations and a handful of upscale national hospitality chains constitute the finest places to stay in the city.
If you’re planning to visit during Cheyenne Frontier Days, be sure to book a hotel far in advance. You should also expect to pay higher than usual rates during that week.
Cheyenne Hotel Recommendations
The Plains Hotel, in operation since 1911, is Cheyenne’s most famous lodging establishment. A full-scale renovation in the early 2000s made The Plains Hotel competitive again after years of business lost to newer chain hotels. Rates on its standard Western-themed rooms are very affordable, but if you’d like to spend more, there are several levels of increasingly luxurious suites.
Elegantly appointed rooms with imported furniture, chandeliers and fine linens are available at the Little America Hotel and Resort. The largest rooms are a spacious 450 square feet with separate sitting areas, and the on-site amenities include an executive golf course, an Olympic-size seasonal outdoor pool, a fitness center and a restaurant.
If you prefer the personal service and unique accommodations of a B&B, it’s hard to top the Nagle Warren Mansion Bed & Breakfast, located within walking distance of Downtown Cheyenne. This well-restored mansion built in 1888 features large rooms filled with antique furnishings and modern electronics. A highlight is a formal afternoon high tea, served every Friday and Saturday.
Due to limited routes and schedules, public transportation is not a particularly convenient transportation option for visitors to Cheyenne. If you plan on exploring the city or venturing to points beyond, renting your own car is well worthwhile.
If you’re taking a direct flight to Cheyenne, you can rent from either of the two car rental agencies at Cheyenne Regional Airport. A few other rental lots are located near Interstate 25 and Missile Drive. Denver International Airport, the nearest major airport to Cheyenne, is served by every national car rental agency.
Taxi companies also provide private transportation throughout Cheyenne, but you will need to call to arrange each pick-up.
