Lake Yellowstone Hotel

1 Grand Loop Rd., about 1 mile south of Fishing Bridge, Yellowstone National Park, Wyoming, 82190, USA

Dating from 1891, the park's oldest lodge maintains an air of refinement that Old Faithful Inn can't muster because of the constant rush of tour buses. Just off the lobby, the spacious sunroom offers priceless views of Yellowstone Lake at sunrise or sunset. It's also a great place to play cards, read, or just soak in the grandeur of a National Historic Landmark. Note the tiled fireplace, the etched windows of the gift shop, and the beautiful bay windows. The white wicker furnishings in the rooms lend them a light, airy feel; some rooms have water views. The least expensive rooms are in an annex, not the original building. The hotel recently underwent a multimillion-dollar renovation. The improvements include a redesigned deli, Wi-Fi access, and a new business center.
