Search terms: hotels Wichita KS 1880s
I found a lot of links with modern travel information, one link on particular buildings, and the Wikipedia page which had only a small sliver of history and nothing about the layout of the town.
Links: Harvey Houses, Cowtown Museum, 1880 Wichita census (note that they do list several occupations as working in hotels, so I know there was at least one there), Historic Sites of Wichita, KS (there were four articles here, but if a hotel was mentioned I missed it), and Wichita, Kansas.
I also thumbed through Dee Brown's "The American West" but found no such references either.
I'm looking for the name of a decent hotel which would have been in operation during this time period.
