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...

We stayed here because of where it came up on our trip and the reviews. We stayed in the Cloud Peak room and it was just like the pics but more so. After many very cool days on out trip this day was lovely so sitting on the deck was sheer delight. The main restaurant was closed (Monday night) we...

First this is a old historic hotel... From the time we walked through the front doors we were greeted by very friendly staff. Love the lobby with all the antiques and photos on all the walls. Upstairs there is lots of old vintage items from the era. And if the room isn't booked the doors are open so you can...

The Occidental Hotel is one of my favorites out of all the historic hotels we have stayed at. Our room was the Hole in the Wall- referring to Butch Cassidy and his Gang. The room as well as the whole hotel had great antique furnishings- our room had a "water closet" with a great small claw foot tub - the...

The rooms provided a trip back in time experience, the dinner in the Virginian was delicious and the jam fest was a highlight. What a perfect way to...

We had business in Wyoming so thought we would check out the Occidental. So much history here it is like sleeping in a museum. Very cozy, casual and friendly. Sundays the restaurant is closed so we ate in the saloon. Wonderful people, friendly but will leave you alone if that is what you want. Front desk staff was more than...

I give this hotel an excellent rating for what it is: a quaint, well-cared-for piece of western history. The rooms are cozy and authentic, the staff wonderfully friendly. The food? For the middle nowhere in a small, non-touristy town, it's pretty good. And every Thursday night the local talent (real ranchers with musical instruments) gets together to play bluegrass in...

The Occidental and Buffalo have become an annual family tradition. We love the historical charm, the comfortable beds, the saloon, and Dawn is a gracious host. The library is filled with treasures for members of the entire family to explore and the mix of room arrangements are great for families, groups, our couples. Don't expect big screen televisions and micro...

If you are heading up to Yellowstone National Park from Denver this is the place to stay and make sure you are there on a Thursday for the Blue Grass Jam Session. It's a fantastic evening with locals playing various instrument and singing their hearts out. And they are absolutely great, all ages. going into the 70's. If you are...
