With a late decision to visit Yellowstone this hotel was the only one available. Don't know what we may have missed at the others, but this one was very good. The room was a little small and had very limited storage space, but it was well appointed, clean, had a nice bathroom, and we had a great view of the lake. The hotel is climate-controlled, but despite the existence of a thermostat in the room, which appeared to have no effect, we did have to use an oscillating fan we found in the room at night.
There's lots of convenient parking, bell service if you need it, and the elevators operated quickly. The lodge offers a number of conveniences, and everyone on the staff was friendly and helpful. There's a beautiful lounge/sitting area which offered live music each evening we were there, and a very nice deli for a quick breakfast if you want to get an early jump on the bison-viewing.
The dining room was lovely, the food good, and the service mostly excellent. We did have one shaky experience at breakfast with a young lady from central Europe who was learning the job and English at the same time, but she was so charming and apologetic that it did not spoil our meal. All other meals were great. ONE CAUTION: As soon as you make your lodge or cabin reservations - even a year in advance - MAKE YOUR DINNER RESERVATIONS if you want to eat in the dining room. They book up quickly, and you could be faced - as we were - with eating dinner at 5:15 or 9:30!
The grounds around the hotel are pretty, and there are a number of walking trails. There's also a nice dock on the lake behind the hotel where you can sit and enjoy the view of the water and mountains.
Not cheap, but a good place to stay, and relatively easy drives to the key points in the Park.
