In-park lodging ranges from rustic old classics to sleek modern hotels, and some of them are true gems.
- The Old Faithful Inn (tel. 307/344-7311): One peek into this 1904-era masterpiece, and you’ll know why it’s the most-requested hotel in the park. From its grand stone fireplace to its soaring timber-and-stone walls to its charmingly old-fashioned rooms, Old Faithful Inn is unlike any other hotel out there, in a national park or otherwise.
- The Lake Yellowstone Hotel (tel. 307/344-7311): If you’re looking to do up your park vacation in style, this is your choice: Lovingly restored Colonial Revival details, a graceful sunroom with lake views, and carefully curated guest rooms make this the most upscale hotel at Yellowstone.
- Roosevelt Lodge Cabins (tel. 307/344-7311): Deluxe it isn’t: This complex of very rustic cabins is as simple as it gets. But its authentic frontier feel, proximity to corrals for horseback rides, and prime location smack at the start of the Lamar Valley make this less-crowded lodge one of the most memorable places to bunk.
