My favorite, off the beaten path, is one not many people have heard of. Oregon Caves Chateau. Ranks right up there with the best of them. I think a lot of people would rank Phantom ahead of El Tovar(for those who have stayed at both places).

I love the national park safari. The Yellowstone National Park is most beautiful place for wildlife lover. I really like it. I am planning to visit this national park during summer vacation.
