Fodor's Review

The Chico Warm Springs Hotel opened in 1900, drawing famous folks such as painter Charlie Russell (1864–1926) to the 96°F–103°F hot-spring pools. The hotel is surrounded by two large outdoor soaking pools, a convention center, and upscale cottages that open to views of 10,920-foot Emigrant Peak and the Absaroka-Beartooth Wilderness beyond. The dining room ($$$–$$$$) is considered among the region's best for quality of food, presentation, and service. Look for Gorgonzola

filet mignon, duck Grand Marnier, rosemary-and-hazelnut-encrusted rack of lamb, and barbecued bison short-rib ravioli with sweet corn cream sauce.
