Being from the UK I may only visit Yellowstone once. We loved the park, and enjoyed the Old Faithful Inn.
The location is just brilliant and you have the opportunity to visit so many geysers without getting in the car. You can also take advantage and see them at times when there are not many people around- eg we saw Old Faithful erupt at 9pm in the dark, with a thunderstorm going on as well. Magic! We also enjoyed the 8.30 am Ranger walk.
Why only a 4 rating? Well first the restaurant - brilliant menu which appears to deal with most requirements. Unfortunately the food is not as good as it should be and the service is worse. (We also stayed at the Mammoth Hotel - their restaurant is much, much better - so sort the Old Faithful restaurant out Xanterra).
Then the room - well its just about OK, but if there is space in a closet for a hanging rail - why not put one in? Why do we have to use coathooks to hang things on?
Finally we made the mistake of ordering a cooked breakfast at the Store café. Big mistake - they had a huge backlog of orders which they only mentioned after we ordered and were served drinks. When the food came it was the worst breakfast of a two week trip.
So its a slightly annoying place in a magical location. If I was lucky enough to be in the Yellowstone again would I stay there - you bet I would!
