We have stayed 2 different times. I think there is good music every night, but it is fabulous on Thursday nights. Unbelievable. It's so convenient to stay right in the hotel, even though it is very old.

Yes! We are very old..............unless you consider America as a pretty young nation. It's all about the frontier and the "Old West" for us. Thank you for coming and we do hope you will return! Jackie

As you open the door and walk into the Hotel Lobby it feels like you have walked into the past. Then, you go into the Saloon and you have definitely walked into the past once again. This Hotel has so much history and then they have pictures on the wall of the important people that have stayed there in the...

Thank you reviewing our famous, historical hotel. We could change, but then, we wouldn't really be historical! For those who desire a different experience, as you observed, we are it. We covet our squeaky floors and old fixtures; after all; what would be without them! I am in great hopes, because you won't forget us, that you will visit us...

Even if you usually stay in chain hotels, give this one a try. As others have said, it is old, dated, etc. True. But how often do you get a chance to stay in a hotel over 100 years old? Room actually uses a real key! Very clean, comfortable, restored to perfection. Read each room's description, as they are all...

This hotel is so very unique and truly is beautiful. There is so much to look at and discover so take your time and really take it all in. We stayed in the Cloud Peak Suite which again was outstanding, very comfortable and spacious. The staff are so friendly and helpful and it's clear they love this beautiful place and...

Feels like you're stepping back in time and becoming part of something historical. We felt like we should be dressing in period clothing! This hotel has been stunningly nurtured to maintain its 1900's look, style and atmosphere. are you staying in a hotel or a museum? Truly awesome. Sure, it's old. The floors are way creaky, doors squeak and some...

The hotel, the saloon, the history....it was remarkable. I felt as if I was stating in a museum. Furthermore, they went out of their way to make sure I saw the unique and hidden highlights. I'm anxious to stay again!

My husband and I stayed here. We read reviews online. We also have a relative that lives close who recommended it. Not modern by any means but has all the comforts you want. We stayed in the Rose room. I can't describe how pretty it is. The beautiful furniture and the old, old radio. The king bed was very comfortable....

If you are interested in history and want to spend a night where icons such as Teddy Roosevelt, Ernest Hemingway, and Owen Wister stayed, then The Occidental is the place for you. Sure the floor boards creek, the furniture is vintage, and a rumored ghost might be lurking in the hallway, but that is the charm of spending a night...

We were going to stay at the Historic Occidental Hotel, but decided not to because, well, it was really historic--as in really old. That's not necessarily a negative comment, but is just offered as a tip for others who, like me, may be more of a Hampton Inn or Holiday Inn Express guy! It is also known for having ghost...

Absolutely wonderful stay. Great room. We stayed in the TR suite and dined at the hotel restaurant. It like stepping back in time. Everyone who lives the old west should make this a must stay destination.
