Words cannot describe this hotel and the fabulous experience, hospitality and lingering memories. The whole place is a living museum, with loads of photos, books, Old West clothing, furniture, pot belly stoves, wireless radios and more. Each room is unique and was designed and constructed with much TLC. Many consist of 2-3 rooms and enough beds for several guests. We had a tour of about 8 of the rooms, loved them all and hope to return every now and then to try the different rooms and suites.
We were pleasantly surprised at the gourmet menu in the Virginian Restaurant.
The live music is very entertaining and enjoyable -- performed on Thursdays (a jam with 8-15 talented musicians), Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays.
A bonus is that the hotel is pet friendly so we were able to bring our elderly dog with us.
If you have any interest in the Old West, you'll enjoy this hotel.
