We are 2 blocks from the Pioneer Woman Mercantile and 5 miles from the border of the Tallgrass Prairie Preserve. The US Post Office and Osage County Elections Board are less than one block away. The Osage Tribal Campus and County Courthouse is directly ABOVE the hotel and accessible by a long flight of stairs.
The Hotel Front Desk and Office is in the shop with the BIG BUFFALO/BISON and AMERICAN EAGLE wrap on it next door to the Gypsy Cowgirl. We are open select hours since check-in is contactless in most cases.
The North Building houses rooms 14-20 and the South Building houses rooms 1-6. They are on the second level of the 700 Block of Kihekah.
Drive past the 700 block going NORTH and make an immediate LEFT turn into the gravel driveway at the end of the building before the Osage Laundry. You'll immediately see signs to the HWHS and lots of antique farm equipment.
Do you have an RV, Bus, Semi, or Large Truck? You may park DIRECTLY across from the 700 block of Kihekah in the space next to Weigant's Pharmacy. The green truck with "Historic Whiting" on it is right next to this lot a well as our Old West Stage, plus our Model T, VW, and other related cars stored there. Please let us know if you do park so we can keep an extra sharp eye on your truck.
The HWHS were built in 1920 and are over 100 years old. There are three flights of stairs that people use to access the hotel from the ground level parking or shops. There are three small stairs on the second-level bridge from the parking lot and two small stairs on the bridge by the caretakers house to access the hotel suites. On the terrace there are drainage pipes and pipes which hold electrical wires that must be stepped over or rolled over. Once inside the bathrooms are very narrow and have ONE step up built into the poured concrete. Some have clawfoot tubs and others have standard fiberglass tubs. There is no space for bars and to use the bathroom requires the door to be closed. The rooms themselves are spacious with lots of room to move around and vast walk-in closets, but reflect the values of space of the 1920s.
