I stayed at The Cody for a week in mid-September, 2009. I had a great stay - excellent room for the price (under $125/night for two queen beds) with a refrig, microwave, good beds, both foam and down pillows, free high-speed internet, two bathrobes, etc. The ipod dock on the radio and the DVD player (with a selection of free loaner movies in the lobby) were nice touches. Hotel had an exercise room with more than the typical treadmill (bikes, weights, etc.), indoor pool and hot tub. Also has loaner bicycles and an outdoor fireplace and sitting area for relaxing.
One day, when I was working in the room nearly all day, I left a "do not disturb" sign on the door. The maids left a note with the housekeeping phone number on the door. I called and the maids cleaned the room and replaced the sheets late afternoon. Note that if you leave the "go green" sign by the bed, they will not change sheets that night. If you turn the go-green sign face-down or move it, the sheets and towels were all changed. I certainly had none of the problems with housekeeping that two previous reviewers noted - my experience was just the opposite; helpful staff working with my schedule.
Desk staff was friendly and helpful, giving spot-on directions to the Japanese internment camp about 12 miles outside of town, the wild mustangs, good info on restaurants in town, etc. Breakfast was good - sausage, eggs, french toast, fresh fruit, muffins, etc. - but not outstanding. Had evening desserts in the lobby.
The business office off the lobby had two laptops with internet and printers (free printing).
The only negative thing I can say is that the location, about 3 miles outside of downtown, is too far to walk to the shops/restaurants downtown. I had a car, so did not ask if the hotel shuttle could run me downtown. The hotel is within walking distance of the rodeo arena and The Terrace restaurant (good food), and the "old town" across the street, but not much else.
This may not be a "luxury" hotel by NYC standards but it was certainly on par with the last few Marriotts I've been in. Most hotels in Cody are basic Motel 6 type hotels - I would certainly recommend this hotel to just about anyone.
