Once abuzz with guests like Presidents Truman, Nixon, Reagan and movie stars like Debbie Reynolds and Jimmy Stewart, the Plains Hotel made quite the impression on the Cheyenne hotel scene when it opened its doors in 1911. The massive two-story lobby was filled with light through a decorative mission-art skylight, an orchestra played from the mezzanine level over the tiled floors and mahogany detail, and every room came with a telephone – an unheard of luxury at the time.

Today, the hotel remains a favorite among history buffs passing through town. Filled with historic character and Old West charm, the property retains its original architecture, woodworking and antique Western paintings and sculptures, along with recently added works by local artists. Guests can take a self-guided tour to see the rich history and memorabilia of the 105-year-old hotel. Beyond the common spaces, the guest rooms are basic, though comfortable and clean.

The hotel is set right across the street from the train depot, putting guests within walking distance of the Cheyene Depot Museum, the historic Atlas Theatre and the Cheyenne Civic Center Performing Arts Theatre, plus nearby shops and restaurants in the historic district. Visitors can also hop on the Cheyenne Street Railway Trolley at the depot for a city tour narrating stories of outlaws, gunfights and the wild, wild west. The Historic Plains Hotel is downtown Cheyenne’s only full-service hotel with a restaurant, fitness room and business center on site.
