While traveling through Yellowstone, our friend suggest we stop in Cody for a real 'Western" experience. He suggested staying at the Irma Hotel in downtown but after reading reviews I wanted something more upscale. I was not disappointed with The Cody. This is a new hotel on the highway leading into town and across the street from the rodeo making it very convenient in the evening.
We choose a kng jacuzzi suite and we were not disappointed with the choice. A beautiful king bed with large sitting area, desk and walk out balcony. Continental Breakfast is included. I was impressed with the staff friendliness and value of this hotel.
Using it as a base, we went into town, saw the shootout at the Irma at 6:00pm (pretty much of an amateur production) and went to dinner in town. At 8:00pm we drove out to the rodeo which was enjoyable although the rodeo clown was pretty corny in his commentary.
After the rodeo I went back into town to the Silver Dollar Saloon. I was surprised to see that they run a friendly poker game, just like the old days. I stayed for a few hours and got a local feel from the regulars.
The next day we went to the Buffalo Bill Museum. This is a must see if you want to learn about the old west. They also have an excellent western art collection.
All in all, this was a good find for a western town.
