Granted we are still here, but we have had a wonderful experience with this IHG hotel. We booked the king suite with a fireplace (I think one of the best rooms- I HAD to have the fireplace! ????). The room is very nice & BIG by most standards. A foyer to hang clothes & coats, etc. A bar with a sink, fridge & places to eat there. A fold out couch, side chair & full 6 person table, HUGE TV & of course the fireplace round out the common space.
Jack n Jill bathroom with a vanity on the living room side & a vanity in the bedroom (big one). King bed is comfy but a tad “bouncy.” Huge closet by any hotel standards.
Oh and 2 thermostats - one for bedroom, one for living- NICE!
Check in easy, we decided to change plans & very accommodating to our changes (I did book refundable & also had given over the 24 hours required notice).
It was nice to have The Branch restaurant in the hotel as we are traveling right when YNP closes & the entire town closes shop. For reference, we leave the day before they close the park.
I used the exercise room every day- it is small but has an elliptical, bike, treadmill, yoga mats, & free weights.
All in all- I would not hesitate to stay here again! Great job!
Full service hotel 30 miles from Old Faithful. Very close to many restaurants and shops. Plenty of parking front and back. Front desk very friendly and helpful. Rooms clean and quiet. The weather here can be a challenge depending on the time of year. Come prepared.
