The following facilities projects will be occurring during the Summer 2014 season. By nature, construction projects can impact the appearance of the area and create noise during the day. We apologize for any inconvenience to our guests.
• Lake Yellowstone Hotel: A roofing project started at the end of June and should be completed by the end of this summer. The final phase of the Lake Yellowstone Hotel interior renovation has been completed.
• Canyon Redevelopment: Over 200 of the Frontier Cabins at Canyon have been removed to allow construction of new lodge buildings. The site will be prepared for three new lodges throughout this summer and fall. Phase 2 of the project will occur next summer and involve the demolition of additional Frontier Cabins and site preparation for the final two lodges.
• Old Faithful Inn: The building will be undergoing a roofing project throughout this summer. This project will begin in June with completion anticipated by the end of the summer season.
• Lake Lodge: A structural stabilization project will be done this summer, with work taking place around the perimeter of the lodge to stabilize the foundation and structure of this historic building. There is no work scheduled for the interior of the lodge building.
What You Can Expect
Yellowstone National Park is an authentic American experience, which should keep every guest and visitor deeply engaged and spending time exploring the park. With this in mind, we do not have televisions, wireless internet or radios in the rooms or cabins, but telephones are available in most hotel and lodge rooms. Cabins do not have telephones.
The daily high temperatures in Yellowstone rarely exceed the low-80 degrees Fahrenheit. Because “it’s a dry heat,” hotels and cabins do not have air conditioning; however, fans are provided. Accessible accommodations are available. Please note that all park accommodations are non-smoking.
