Since 1911 "The Historic Virginian Hotel" has been the "gathering place" in southern Wyoming for over 100 years.  Set in Medicine Bow, Wyoming it was the biggest hotel between Denver, Colorado and Salt Lake City, Utah and is registered a National Historic Landmark.
 
The old western hospitality has remained the same over the years and people are still drawn to this fascinating hotel. Today hotel lodging consists of sixteen antique sleeping rooms, four antique suites, twelve motel rooms, our recent addition, The Scotts' Cedar Street Addition with 4 sleeping rooms and the newest addition to the Historic Virginian Hotel the The Virginian Motel consisting of 20 motel rooms. Additional features include the Eating House, "Back 40", the Shilo Saloon, the Owen Wister dining room, and the famed Owen Wister Suite.
 
The "Historic Virginian Hotel" derives its name from the classic novel by Owen Wister. First published in 1902 The Virginian has been made into three movies, a TV series, and has established the prototype for all westerns to this day.
