Built in 1936, Mammoth Hot Springs Hotel & Cabins offers travelers a chance to see elk grazing on the grass around the grounds, as well as the travertine terraces of Mammoth Hot Springs. This elegant hotel sits at the North Entrance to the park accessed via Gardiner, Mont. It is located alongside the impressive stone buildings which were once Fort Yellowstone.
The hotel is in the midst of a two-year renovation. With the first phase of renovations completed, the hotel’s guest rooms and public spaces have been updated, the ski shop has expanded and administrative offices have been shuffled. Renovations also include transforming the Map Room to more of a lounge area with new furniture while staying true to the building's 1920-era style. A small bar was built in the room to serve coffee and alcoholic beverages. The large wooden wall map designed by architect Robert Reamer in the 1930s, which was recently sent to the National Park Service Conservation Laboratory in Arizona to be restored, is back in place and looking better than ever.
The final phase of the remodel, which will be upgrading all rooms with a private bath, started in September 2018 with some remaining projects ongoing during the summer of 2019 while the hotel is open for guests.
The hotel's light-filled Terrace Grill with its oversized windows and cabins that range in amenities haven't changed. Stay in a Frontier Cabin with two queen beds and a shower, sink and toilet, a hot tub cabin that features an outdoor hot tub that accommodates six people, a cabin without a bath, or a two-room cabin without a bath.
