Old Faithful Snow Lodge - Yellowstone National Park
Premium Room 1 King
We stayed in a premium king room on the 2nd floor of the Old Faithful Snow Lodge. The room was fairly large with a king-size bed, leather chair, desk and chair, private bathroom, and two closets.
The room did have a small fridge but it was not plugged in when we arrived. If you are booking a premium room so you can use the small refrigerator make sure it is plugged in and cold before using it for medication or food.
There was a fan which helped cool the room down along with opening the one window. In front of the window there is a great bench for luggage or to sit on.
One thing that we really loved was all of the electrical plugins on the desk. There were regular plugins plus USB plugs so we were able to charge all of our devices and camera batteries during our stay without having to hunt all over the room for a plugin.
The bed was firm similar to the Old Faithful Inn. There were three small pillows on the king-size bed. If you like a large pillow or more than a couple of small ones you may need to request additional pillows or bring one with you.
The room was fairly quiet all night long. Since we left the window open to cool the room off we could hear people walking outside of the Snow Lodge starting fairly early in the morning.
Overall the Snow Lodge was a great place to stay for easy access to Old Faithful and the main loop road. One additional bonus for staying at the Snow Lodge was the free WiFi that was included in the room.
The WiFi was strong enough to pull up our security cameras at home and check emails. I don’t think it would be strong enough to download large files but for light work it was fantastic.
Obsidian Dining Room
Since we visited during 2020 the dining rooms was take out only. They had a great system for ordering and pick up that went great. I would highly recommend the Montana Wagyu Beef Burger. It was full of flavor and tasted amazing.
My wife said the grilled cheese sandwich and fries were also fantastic.
