This hotel in the middle of Yellowstone and across from Old Faithful geiser has been open a 100 years, and feels just like it's that time - in a good sense. Early May was a great time to visit - still a bit chilly, so all the fireplaces were on all the time, which contributed to a great atmosphere. People from all rooms socialize in the evening s on the landings, sipping beer, playing card games, or playing computer games (no Internet, as you'd expect). Great access to the best geiser fields, superb restaurants... Totally worth going to the middle of nowhere!
