Property Information

Choosing The Historic Plains Hotel, you and your guests will be treated to the same fanfare and hospitality as what greeted visitors to Cheyenne for the past 112 years. Located in the heart of downtown Cheyenne, The Historic Plains Hotel has been refurbished to its original splendor of 1911.  Back then, automobiles were just coming onto the market and only the rich could afford such contraptions, anyways. Horse drawn wagons and buggies and of course the Iron Horse (passenger trains) were the basic forms of transportation. Oh yes and bicycles were all the rage and everyone was finding it easier and faster to peddle anywhere in the city. Now mind you Highways, byways and streets were not paved, most were just big ruts in the dirt. 

In 1912, Carl G. Fisher, an automobile enthusiast, was instrumental in developing and paving the transcontinental highway be built connecting the New York City with San Francisco, and so it was. That very same "Lincoln-way" passes right in front of The Historic Plains Hotel. Another highway called the CanAm running from the Gulf of Mexico into Canada passes our other entrance, causing us to sit right at the Crossroads of America. Today the hotel boast a quaint 131 rooms with meeting space and plans for a restaurant and bar. All rooms come with a flat screen TV, a small fridge and coffee making facilities. Guests enjoy a large private bathroom equipped with a hairdryer. Many shops, restaurants and parks surround the hotel and guest enjoy a fitness center and laundry facilities.

Wyoming had loads of Cowboys, Indians, Rail Barons and assorted foreign nobility roaming the plains in 1911 and our hotel honors those men and women today. The Hotel has been host to such great personalities as W. F. "Buffalo Bill" Cody, President Teddy Roosevelt, Jimmy Stewart, Debbie Reynolds, Charles Lindbergh, President John F. Kennedy and many, many more. Providing outstanding accommodation to the weary traveler has been our tradition since opening. We offer everything from a Bunk House Room to and luxurious Presidential Suite. We are an extended stay hotel so feel free to make your reservations for up to 30 days at a time. 

With lots of stories and folklore to capture the hearts of young and old, come join us on our journey into the future and add your name to our register as you "Step through our doors; step back in time and experience the legend!"

We look forward to serving you!

Damages During Your Stay

The room and all equipment and furniture should be treated with care and kept in order. Immediate notification to The Plains Hotel staff will be expected of any damages or breakages in the room. You (The Tenant) is financially responsible for any damage to the room. This includes losses caused by you (The Tenant) or a third party negligent actions and behavior. A summary check will be made of the room check-out time. However, a more detailed review of the condition of the room and all equipment and facilities will be made soon after check-out and before another guest occupies the room. The Tenant is responsible for any damages or breakages found that are over and above normal wear and tear and usage. In this case, a detailed statement of damage along with an invoice for the repair or replacement cost will be sent by email or fax immediately. Any costs will be deducted from the deposit immediately if this is still possible. Any costs will be claimed by return if they are greater than the deposit or where the deposit has already been returned. Please note, immediate notification after check-out of any damages to, breakages in or issues with the room is expected.

The Plains Hotel can then take any necessary action to resolve any issues and make sure all the equipment and facilities are working and provided as expected.  
Damage deposit is fully refundable upon check-out and subject to damage inspection of the accommodation. The deposit must be paid upon check-in, in cash or by credit card, along with a balance and is fully refunded at the check-out if the apartment is in good order and the company does not have any claims. The costs of damages or cleaning beyond what would be expected after responsible usage of the apartment will be deducted from the deposit, and the refunded amount will be the remainder of the damage deposit. Please remember Entire rooms ARE fully NON-smoking! At the check-in time, you will be asked to sign a document that you agree to a $200.00 fine if traces of smoking are found in the apartment.

If you are already staying with us and you would like to stay longer, please let us know at least 24 hours before your check- out date. We will do our best to accommodate your new plans and this can include relocating you to a similar apartment should this be necessary.

Pet Policy
Are we pet friendly? Yes, You bet! A maximum of two pets are allowed per room. $25 . Just make sure your furry friends do their business in the designated area and stay on a leash when outside the room. No rogue poppers and, sorry … no pets in the lobby (that’s the health department’s call and we’ve got to heed their rules). Pets cannot be left unattended in rooms at any time. While there is absolutely no pet fee, there is a $200 deposit required in the form of a credit card pre-authorization. Should your furry friend shed a great amount or have a potty accident in the room, a cleaning fee will be charged to the credit card on file in the amount of $200.00. Should your pet cause property or item damage, an incidental fee will be charged at market value to your credit card on file. Any funds remaining from the pre-authorized amount will be released after check-out and, dependent upon your bank’s policy, will reflect on your account within 10 business days. No venomous creatures

Room Policy
We want you to have a great time when you are here. But if things get too crazy, we go by the old-school rule of ‘you break it, you buy it’ and property damages or missing items will be charged to your credit card at market value. Pre-existing damages or room issues must be reported to the front desk immediately after registration to avoid responsibility and potential charges. The hotel allows guests, with permission, to receive occasional packages and special deliveries at the property. We are not responsible for the packages or their contents or the storage of them. Sing your heart out and have passionate conversation all day long, but from 11:00 p.m. to 7:00 a.m. the whole property goes into hush mode for what we like to call quiet time (or sleep time).

Kitchen Rooms
Please practice safe cooking habits do not leave burners on unattended. Please do not cook with strong smelling ingredients. Lingering smells that require room closure and deep cleans will be charged a cleaning fee of up to $200.00

Parking Policy
Vacations should be stress-free and for that reason, you get to park right in front of your room (or super close). By parking a vehicle at our facility, you (and your guests) are doing so on your own accord. The hotel does not take responsibility or accept liability for damage, accident or loss to your vehicle or personal property. But guess what? We’ve got state-of-the-art surveillance cameras watching over the parking lot so, should anything seem amiss, let us know, and we’ll check out the footage. And if you plan on leaving your car in our parking lot for a while, not problem, just let us know, as we reserve the right to tow vehicles.
