  • A Historic Hotel

    by Val_Mansfield on 2017-11-08 06:45 pm

    This may be one of the great hotels of the US west but it is sadly lacking in some areas.

    The one lift was not working throughout our stay which made it difficult for some guests.

    The rooms were "quaint" but the shower was over an old claw footed bath with no hand holds and an Engineering Degree was needed to operate it.

    Beds were comfortable.

    The pubic rooms were quite nice and we had a good meal in the bar. Breakfast was also quite good.

  • Wonderful historic hotel in beautiful location

    We stayed a night here whilst visiting the National Park. The beautiful old building is wonderful, the large lobby is full of comfortable leather couches and the deck is a great spot to sit and watch the lake during the day or the stars at night. The bar and restaurant were nice with good service but limited to local craft beers - all we wanted was a Bud or something. The rooms have been recently refurbished and are great. Not the most comfortable bed, but then we are used to a King. Beautiful bathroom and lovely toiletries. We had access onto a balcony which was definitely worth having, just beware the flies and mosquitos at night - the fly screens did little to keep them out.

    We arrived at about 3.30 and managed to get a parking spot ok but had to wait until about 4.30 for our room to be ready. This wasn't too much of a problem for us but I was told 3 times that our room was almost ready the had to wait an hour in all. The scenery around the lake was incredible at whatever time of day you look at it, the hotel is really placed in the most wonderful spot. The staff were nice but we did have to wait for things like a bellboy, barman and checkin throughout the stay which was a bit frustrating. I appreciate it was fully booked and busy, but there should be enough staff to deal with all of the guests. It would have been nice to have had a second bar or something in the main lobby, our hour long wait in the lobby would have passed better if we could have had a beer or glass of wine in hand.

    Location is the best thing about this hotel and waking up in one of the US's best National Parks is very special but a few small improvements would take this up to an excellent hotel.

  • Creaky, classic hotel in fabulous location

    by TimPA1004 on 2017-10-23 08:02 am

    We stayed here in Jul 31-Aug 4, 2017 (pre-fire so no smoke) with a family group of 8. Made reservation one year in advance. hint, hint, don't wait. We had four queens in a row with a shared balcony (only these four rooms could use the balcony) overlooking the lake. Perfect. Only glitch was we had the King suite for the July 31 but didn't get it for the days in August because of they way they take reservations by month. The staff made the transfer easy, it really wasn't a glitch: two of us just had to move after the first night.

    The rooms are small but comfortable. We had brand new furniture. The balcony was the best part; we would get up early each morning and watch the bears on the slope across the lake (bring binoculars). Lots of cliff swallows flying everywhere. the mist pouring over the Ptarmigan wall on some mornings was cool. Hard to overstate the beauty of this location.

    Other notes: Wifi bandwidth is weak because of satellite link, I suppose. Got up early and went to lobby to connect and download email. Web surfing almost impossible. Did have a mouse one night, not unexpected for a hotel that is closed 7 months a year. Walk to parking lot is an uphill hike, drop off anyone who is challenged in going up hill. Limited elevators in hotel.

    Staff was helpful. See separate review for Ptarmigan dining room (meh).

  • We loved the hotel!

    by ronna g on 2017-10-20 011:34 pm

    We arrived after a difficult drive with lots of sleet & we feared the weather would ruin the visit. our room was ready by 4 p.m. so we hauled up the 3 floors to our room.
    it was lovely!
    The room was not very big because this is an older hotel. No t.v., bad internet, but the charm and grace of the property was why we were there.
    We went to bed fearing we would awaken to bad weather.
    Instead we awoke to a view from our small balcony of the most beautiful glaciers, dusted the night before with snow.
    The sun came up & the show began!!
    it is hard to describe the beauty of these Glaciers at sunrise.
    Go and see for yourself why it is such a wonderful hotel~.

  • Iconic? Not!

    by 423rroth on 2017-10-18 10:29 am

    We were at Many Glacier on 9/9 with the Tauck Canadian Rockies and Glacier Tour. Aside from the appalling smoke conditions from the Sprague and Apgar fires, we were exposed to one of the most abominable lodgings on earth.
    This supposed "iconic" lodge which is loved and revered by so many, to us and most of our traveling companions was one of the lowlights of a trip that had more than a few.
    We were warned that many of the employees had returned to college the week before and so service might be a little slow. Slow would have been ok. Downright rude was not. The staff in the dining room and bar had sullen and rude down to a science.
    Additionally, the quality of the food was reprehensible. A 7 oz portion of prime rib with exactly 4 small bites being edible and the rest fat and gristle was not defensible. And yet, defend it they did.
    Now onto the bar. Requesting a vodka and tonic and receiving a vodka and ginger ale is NOT ok.The explanation was that this was the lodge's tonic that night. Another rip-off.
    Our room was ancient, archaic, dirty and deplorable. Windows couldn't be opened due to the choking smoke so a metal and wire fan (circa 1950's) up in the corner of the wall and ceiling was no help. Everything smelled either smoky or moldy.
    We didn't have critters in our room, but others had frequent visits by the mice that apparently have the run of the place. And, that includes the dining rooms and kitchens. Yecch!
    Do yourself a favor and skip this dump. Xanterra needs to spend some serious $$ and do more than cutesy up the lobby.
    What a horrible experience!
