Welcome!The Occidental Hotel is one of Wyoming’s great Frontier hotels, with a history of having hosted most of Johnson County’s political, social, and cultural gatherings. Guests whose names have graced the hotel register include Buffalo Bill Cody, Teddy Roosevelt, General Sheridan, and General Crook. Even the notorious Butch Cassidy, the Sundance Kid, and Calamity Jane chose the Occidental as their headquarters in Buffalo—though they never signed the register! In addition to hotel guests and events, the hotel’s embossed ceilings, original back bar (brought by wagon over 100 years ago), and even bullet holes in the saloon wall, bring western history to life!Like many hotels in small towns in the West, the hotel has had its share of partners, owners, and economic hard times over the past century. Then, in the fall of 1997, John and Dawn Wexo came to town and bought the Occidental, with a promise to bring it back to its former glory as the preeminent social and cultural meeting place of Buffalo. They made good on their promise, and the Occidental is now a living history museum, fully restored to its 1910-era condition, and the recipient of several awards, including TrueWest Magazine’s Best Hotel in the West and National Geographic Traveler’s Top 129 Hotels in North America.Guest accommodations are in 17 rooms and suites, each uniquely furnished with antiques, and decorated in elegant period style, with a private bath, heat and air conditioning, cable television, complimentary WiFi, and a hairdryer. There are no telephones in the rooms.The Virginian Restaurant is one of the premier restaurants in Northeastern Wyoming, serving the best bison, steaks, chops, and prime rib around, with the elegance of the Old West. The Busy Bee Cafe is a cheery as they come, and has been serving locals since 1927. Breakfast is delicious!
