28 North C, Virginia City, NV | Directions 8944039.311138 -119.649501
Walking in off the street you feel like you have just entered an old western movie. The bar is picture perfect with the huge mirror and old bar stools and the staff is so welcoming and friendly. There is no TV in the room, which is exactly perfect to complete your Virginia City experience, and the rooms have been beautifully preserved. The location is ideal for a walk around the town and the chili dogs at the bar, with AMAZING homemade chili, are delicious. There is a bakery next door which has fresh coffee and yummy pastries, I recommend buying the travel mug for free refills =)
If you truly want an authentic old western town experience in Virgina City I would highly suggest this hotel.
The walls are a little thin but other than that this town in amazing! My boyfriend and I had a ghostly encounter at this hotel. We heard a voice in our room say "Oh my god, oh my god." We both looked at each other in amazement for the voice sounded as if it was right next to us. It is a great little bar downstairs and the wedding chapel is a must see.
This hotel is very unique. It was built in the 1800's and the only thing that appears to have been changed is that they have added bathrooms/showers to the rooms. Otherwise, it's as if you're going back in time and staying at an old west hotel. Roam in off the wood sidewalks of the city and into a true classic of a hotel. The rooms are very reasonably priced, and we had no problem getting one in the middle of June. The location is directly in the center of the city. Service was good, and check-in took about 30 seconds. Remember, though, this is a true 1800's hotel. No phones, no TV, no mini-bar. Highly recommended to help get a feel for this fun, historic city.
I visited Virginia City to do a little historical and family research. I went through the hotel a couple of times that day, taking pictures. Beautiful interior and a few orbs thrown in for good measure! Terry the bartender and housekeeper, was so accomodating and full of wonderful information. She even remembered me from the prior week! When I need to go back to VC (only from So. Lake Tahoe - 1 hour away) to do more extensive research, I've considered booking a room at the Silver Queen so that I can stay over night. All of this from a bartender being a very nice person!
We stayed here leaving another hotel that was outside of town. The location is the best bar-non, if you want to be in the middle of everything in town there really is only one place to stay and this is it. The management is friendly and ready to help you if you have a problem. When you go to Virginia City you want to feel like you have gone back in time and here you really do, and the ghosts greet you with a smile.
My husband and I were celebrating our 10 year anniversary and we decided Virginia City would be fun. I called the Silver Queen and talked to Connie the owner of the hotel. She was very helpful, and set everything up so we could renew our vows in their chapel. When we got there, Tina, the bartender, checked us in. She was so nice and talkative. Our room was the Bridal Suite, which was very large. Very high ceilings and tall windows that looked out on the main street. The next day, Connie assisted us getting dressed as if it was actually our BIG day. They outfitted my husband and I in Period wedding dress. It was so much fun! I didn't see any ghosts during our visit, which was a little disappointing, but revisiting the past in Virginia City was well worth the trip.
