Stay Near the Buffalo Bill Center of the West
Originally founded in 1927, the Buffalo Bill Center of the West is dedicated to showcasing the life and times of William "Buffalo Bill" Cody – American icon and entrepreneur. Visitors of the historic attraction stay less than half of a mile from the museum at BEST WESTERN PREMIER Ivy Inn & Suites. While you're listening to the history and tales of the old west originally told by Cody, you'll find that your stay at our 100 % smoke-free hotel is the perfect compliment to your visit to the center.
Experience the lifestyle and history of the western frontier from those who helped shape it. You'll notice that the center itself doubles as its own exhibit – it was modeled after Cody's very own "TE Ranch," where he spent years as noted guide, scout, frontiersman, entrepreneur, and town founder during the 1800s. During your visit to the center, be sure to explore the Cody Firearms Museum; the largest collection of American firearms in the world.
Although the Buffalo Bill Center of the West is primarily home to a vast collection of historic exhibits, it also hosts a variety of events, programs, lectures, shows, and more throughout the year. While you take in the history, don't forget to stop by the Draper Natural History Museum and the Plains Indians Museums – both have historical significance to the old west as well. For your convenience, we offer free parking at the hotel and are walking distance from the center, making your visit to the center as hassle-free as possible.
After an enlightening day at the center, come home to our comfortable hotel and unwind with a full array of relaxing amenities like our indoor heated pool, cable satellite television, and free, high-speed internet. It may not be an old west-style saloon, but our full, on-site cocktail lounge is the perfect retreat after a day at the Buffalo Bill Center of the West.
