Het Yellowstone National Park werd in 1872 als eerste park ter wereld tot nationaal park gedoopt. De meer dan 10.000 geothermische attracties, zoals geisers en modderpoelen trekken toeristen van over de hele wereld. Het park strekt zich uit over het zuiden van Montana en het noorden van Wyoming. Het grootste gedeelte van Yellowstone National Park bestaat uit bos. Onder het Yellowstone National Park bevindt zich een vulkanische hotspot. Dergelijke hotspots komen wel meer voor, maar het is een zeldzaamheid dat ze onder een continent liggen en niet in de zee. De vulkaan onder Yellowstone geldt als één van de grootste ter wereld. Yellowstone geldt als één van de populairste nationale parken en wordt sinds de jaren zestig jaarlijks bezocht door twee miljoen toeristen.
"Great Character, Excellent Location and Staff"
Great Character and unique ambiance as soon as u walk in. We were given Room 152 which had a great view over Old Faithful geyser (we could watch is blow from our room) Excellent bathrooms, really well maintained Staff were all great Restaurant was very good Very Comfy Beds Our only complaint would be the walls are very thin (bring some ear plugs and there are only sheer curtains so light comes in early morning (bring an eye mask) Would definitely stay here again
"Mixed Feelings about the whole experience"
There is nothing like staying in one of the grand old hotels in our country. Grovepark Inn in Asheville, Greenbriar in WV etc...so from that perspective - I was happy to pay the EXORBITANT amounts for my husband's 60th birthday celebrations. This was once in a lifetime on a lot of fronts. We stayed in the new section with our own bathroom in an itty bitty room but again - we could work around all that. The history and sites were amazing. What fell short was staffing and the "touches" you shouldn't only expect for $340 a night - you paid for them. The amazing fireplace in the main room was never lit (and it was chilly in mid-May for sure) unless you asked. Getting checked in and checked out felt like going through Disney World lines and little things like that. And look - I am really not complaining. Like I said - the opportunity of a lifetime. But if there had been more attention to the detail that existed when that hotel was built and the spirit and foundation the hotel existed to serve - I'd go back for every milestone celebration. Alas, they phoned it in, counting on the amazing ambiance and history to make up for losing the special things the hotel has the possibility to embody.
"The best trip ever"
In 1960 with my parents, we drove through Yellowstone National Park, we passed the Old Faithful Inn, and I fell in love with the dear old building. Then in '84 we, my husband and son and I returned, and again, a "drive by" of OFI. Last week, I finally got my chance to stay there with my husband for several days. AMAZING is the only thing I can say. The original building was constructed in 1904, one wing added in 1914, and the west wing in 1927. We were in the west wing, first floor. Quiet, relaxing and a view of about 10 or so steaming pools near Old Faithful. There is a balcony off the 2nd floor where you can sit and wait and watch Old Faithful while noshing and sipping your choice of beverage, with a convenient "liquid" bar right inside the one door. The dining room and the wait staff are excellent, a limited menu, but always with a buffet. the menu covers nearly every culture and dietary direction. I do recommend, however that you make reservations early on for dinner...........as they do take walk-ins, but not until about 9 PM is there actually room. There is an excellent bell hop system for schlepping your bags, there are no elevators for the public, so plan to walk and get in those 10,000 recommended steps. Our room was clean and well appointed, considering that it was constructed in 1927, don't expect a modern room. It was quaint with wonderful mattresses and pillows and soft sheets. The entire experience as amazing. Just one caution, the Old Faithful Inn opens May first, but some of the mountain passes leading in and out of Yellowstone are not yet open. Check your routes ahead of time!!! Everything you need is within walking distance and a very drivable upper and lower loops, forming a figure 8. No matter where you look, the park is magical, considering you are in the bottom of the world's largest caldera (volcano).
"One of a Kind!"
Stayed 3 nights and enjoyed every minute. Our west wing room was clean and quiet. Service was very helpful. Dinning in for dinner best use reservations. Sara was our service person during several meals>>very helpful. In the deli you will find great tasting ice cream. Would definitely return.
"Fantastic, but not in the usual ways."
This hotel has no Wi-Fi, no televisions, poor cellular service, leaves the front door to the lobby open often leaving the lobby somewhat cold, has creaky floors, small rooms. Some rooms have a dedicated bathroom but guests in other rooms share showers and bathrooms and the rooms are somewhat expensive. The hotel is not just off the interstate and is kind of difficult to get to. However.....the three days we spent in Old Faithful Inn were one of the best hotel experiences in our nearly 40 years of travel together. Our room was in the east wing (added to the main building around 1920) and had a bathroom and a great view of Old Faithful. Although we are not hikers, there are many trails that the hikers we talked to enjoyed. We drove most of the Loop Road over those three days and saw over a thousand bison, some with young, some up close and some far off. We also saw many pronghorn, a coyote, a variety of squirrels and other small creatures. We stopped for Bison crossing the road at least three times and once more for a group of about 10 with three young walking down the road at a leisurely pace. The lobby at Old Faithful Inn is one of a kind and 3 or more stories of high, rustic but beautiful construction and is quite inviting. On the north end of the second floor of the lobby is a viewing "patio" with a great view of Old Faithful. Many evenings (every one while we were there) live piano and cellist played by Martha Colby from the southwest corner of the second floor can be enjoyed from any place in the lobby. Drinks and food are available and can be enjoyed in the lobby. The staff is friendly and helpful. We had no occasion to complain about anything during our stay. Wildlife is visible from the Inn and some comes quite close. Patrons are warned to keep their distance -- some do, some don't -- go figure. One recommendation is to purchase a $35 membership to the Yellowstone Forever group before you check in to the Inn. As of this writing (5/19/2018) you get 20% off your room and discounts at various places in the area, including the gift shop at the Inn. You can find out about it at the Yellowstone Forever Gift Shop in the Old Faithful Welcome Center just south of the Inn. This saved us $35 many times over and is also good at other National Parks. We bought after we registered at the Inn and did not get the discount on our rooms for the first night. We highly recommend a stay at the Old Faithful Inn. Study carefully before you choose and you'll get what you are expecting. When we tried to reserve a room in November of 2017, there were none available for June July or August of 2018. That's why we went in May 2018. The crowds were much smaller (by many reports) and the service was very good. We are glad we went when we did but if you want to go in the busy season you may need to get a reservation as much as a year in advance.
