Spending two nights at the Glacier Park Lodge in Montana was one of the high points of our cross country train trip this September. My husband is in a wheel chair therefore we are somewhat limited in our travel options. Luckily he loves trains, and when I found out that the Empire Builder stops right at East Glacier it was a perfect stopover along our trip from Boston Ma to Seattle WA. The grandeur of the hotel has been noted by many of trip advisor's entries so I won't expound on that, but I would like to focus on the accommodations for my husband. We were picked up right at the station and taken to the lodge, then given a great room #106 on the main level. A corner room with two double beds and a huge bathroom (large enough for the wheelchair to be in with no problems) and very clean. I cannot say enough good things about the staff, friendly and very helpful in all ways. Frankly I had read some very negative remarks on this site about the lodge and I was appehensive but decided to take a chance on staying there. I am so glad I did!!! Otherwise we would have missed a golden opportunity to see one of the most beautiful places in America. Go there if you can, you wont be sorry
