Experience the Historic Sheridan Inn…

~Each suite will present the times and individual histories of these people in the room’s overall finish and furnishings, art, artifacts, and exhibit. View each of the rooms below.

The Guest Suites

The Sheridan Inn’s significance in our nation’s history lies primarily in its direct connection with William F. “Buffalo Bill” Cody, who developed and sold the concept of the Inn to the railroad, and as part owner, directed hotel management, and even auditioned from the front porch new members for his touring company the “Wild West” show. Buffalo Bill pulled together one of the most interesting cast of true-to-life characters that has probably ever even been assembled. Some he had known as a young frontier scout. Others he met later as a Pony Express rider, military scout, cattle rancher, mine owners, and in other enterprises. Still others came to the show after it began its long run.

The Character Rooms

Each of the twenty-two rooms at the revitalized Sheridan Inn focuses on Buffalo Bill and twenty-one other key characters from his long life. Each suite will present the times and individual histories of these people in the room’s overall finish and furnishings, art, artifacts, and exhibit. You will know the characters as icons of the American West, while others you may have never heard of previously, but be assured they are all people you will want to know. Together, they have helped shape how we as Americans see ourselves, and how others in the world see us.
