A remarkable place to live history. So much to excite your senses here, and let your imagination run wild. The rooms are period decorated with real antiques, and all necessary and fine working modern conveniences. I would have like to have been able to spend days exploring the hotel, saloon, and restaurant. The Chef and Wait staff at The Virginian...

My husband and I spent Friday night, Memorial weekend. Everyone we encountered from the time I called and booked the reservation, until we checked out, treated us like a friend. They were helpful and offered up their opinions and advice, and it was always good. My husband loved the creaky old floors. If you're looking for 5 star contemporary this...

Staying at this hotel is like taking a step back in time - it has all the trappings of the past yet all the mod cons you need for a comfortable stay. The welcome from the staff is genuine, warm and helpful. The building itself is a wonderful old building and all the rooms are furnished with period pieces. The...

Just called here for a beer after reading up for trip. Lots of history and atmosphere. Hostess in bar was very friendly and let us look around the hotel and take photos. You would almost expect Butch Cassidy to walk through the doors. Great fun

Don't miss this opportunity to step back in time if you're ever within 50 miles of Buffalo, Wyoming! We can't thank the owners enough for their labor of love on this piece of Old West history. Spacious and clean, the rooms are dressed to the historical period but include modern amenities. If you can't stay at the hotel, at least...

Wow--no words can describe a stay at THE OCCIDENTAL HOTEL in Buffalo, Wyoming. An atmosphere and thoroughly enjoyable experience and way to live in the past. The Saloon is a must visit , especially on Thursday, Friday and Saturday when live music is played and the real cowboys and cowgirls show their talents. Reasonably priced, great bar, great food and...

Though this hotel is on the pricey side and lacks some of the 'fineries' of chains/plush hotels it is still worthy of a 5 rating because of the whole experience of stating in an historical building. The story itself is romantic and the suites are all 3 (I think) original rooms combined into 1 suite. They are all different and...

This place is wondrously appointed with antique period decor from the outside through the lobby, up the stairway and down the hallways. Absolutely amazing. Love the way all the modern amenities are subtly integrated into the rooms and hallways so as not to take away from the historical atmosphere. Staff friendly and helpful. If you are staying in the area,...

Dawn Wexo has done the world a favour by restoring this brilliant hotel. Everything it says on its website, while rather extravagant, is actually true. You could spend days looking at the photos, the memorabilia, the library ... The restaurant is good, the saloon is GREAT, the people delightful. The lobby with its wood fire is meditative. We had a...
