    Historic Haunted Hotel


    This hotel is definitely one of the most interesting here in Cheyenne, WY. The lobby has an interesting huge lighting fixture shaped like a tepee and you can definitely see all the beautiful details throughout the hotel. There is also the story about how the hotel became haunted to add to the experience. We had reserved three rooms and got two on the fifth floor and one on the fourth floor. We had an issue with both rooms on the fifth floor (next to each other). Neither room was cleaned and there were condoms, feces stained towels, trash, and dirty underwear present. The fourth floor room was just fine. The girl at the front desk was surprised by this and gave us two other rooms. The other thing is that the lighting is rather dim throughout all of the hallways and in the foyer of the room. The lamps in one room all had burned out light bulbs. The sheets also had gray marks (not sure if dirty or permanently stained) as did the undersides of the pillowcases. This hotel has seen better days indeed as my coworker stayed here last year without issue. The bathrooms, though, have not been updated for many years and have aging sinks, tubs, and tiles. My tub faucet even had duct tape on it.

    Unique Quality: The hotel has a nice restaurant, bar, and coffee shop. It also has the interesting reputation for being haunted so if you are into ghost sightings you definitely want to stay here. It is conveniently located downtown in a very central location to much of the historic part of the city. In all of our rooms there was a bible open to Psalms 68-71

    Directions: downtown directly across the street from the train depot

    A grand old hotel


    This is one of the grand old hotels of Wyoming and was a lovely place to stay for the final night of our trip.

    As soon as you walk into the lobby you know you’re somewhere a bit different. There’s a stunning stained glass ceiling (see second photo) and beautiful Western artwork and photography by Wyoming artists.

    The hotel is packed with atmosphere but the mod cons aren’t neglected. Our room was spacious and comfortable, if old-fashioned in the character of the furnishings; the heating was efficient (it was a cold day!), the TV was good size, and there was a hair-dryer and all the necessary toiletries in the bathroom. But it’s downstairs that this hotel really scores – the magnificent lobby; a friendly little coffee shop with great lattes and the almost-obligatory (in Wyoming) bison’s head on the wall; a more formal and traditional restaurant “The Capitol Grille”; and even a spa, which sadly I didn’t have time to try out.

    The location couldn’t be more convenient, right across the square from the Union Pacific Depot. The downside of this though is the parking: if you’re staying here on a weekday you have to move your car to their parking lot a couple of blocks away once you’ve unloaded your bags, But as we were there at the weekend we could take advantage of free street parking and could leave the car right outside!

    We’re always willing to pay a little more for a downtown location as we prefer to be at the centre of things. If you take advantage of the hotel’s internet special prices however, this place is pretty good value for money – we paid $79 for our large room with a king-size bed.

    Unique Quality: I loved all the original art, both traditional and quite modern. My third photo shows a beautifully painted sculpture of a bison which was on display in the lobby

    Directions: Immediately across the street from the Union Pacific Depot
