Old Faithful Inn, Yellowstone National Park

#11 of 120 in Things to do in Yellowstone National Park
Architectural Building · Tourist Spot
The world's biggest log hotel, Old Faithful Inn provides unobstructed views of the world-famous geyser "Old Faithful" named because of the predictable nature of its eruptions. Designed by architect Robert Reamer, the building features a multi-story lobby with a massive stone fireplace flanked by long frame wings that house guest rooms. One of the country's finest examples of the "Golden Age" of rustic resort architecture, the inn joined the National Register of Historic Places in 1973 as the centerpiece of the historic district that includes several other buildings and the geyser itself. Constructed using only local materials, the inn remains one of the last great park lodges of the American West, attracting as many visitors today as it did when it opened in 1904.

  • I love this Inn. So much history. The architecture is extremely neat. It has cute gift shops and places to eat. I've been twice. I plan on visiting again when I'm able to!
  • Nice place, I understand that part of the appeal is to stay in a old hotel but they are seriously in need of a internal make over for the rooms. Especially the beds
