At least two new hotels are being built in Cheyenne and a third one is in the planning stages, according to Mayor Rick Kaysen

The mayor says the new hotels on West Lincolnway and Fox Farm Road are nearing completion, while the third, a new Hilton proposed for 17 Street and Pioneer Avenue is in the planning stages. One of the new hotels,  a TownePlace Suites operated by the Marriott Chain, is located next to a long-time landmark on West Lincolnway, the Hitching Post Inn.

Kaysen says the hotel construction and planning is a good sign for the local economy because the builders obviously believe the community will continue to grow or else they wouldn't make the investment.
