The first thing you have to remember is that this hotel is very old and is in a national park. The staff is extremely friendly and helpful. The environment is excellent and the building is amazing.
They added something new this year - XM Radio music playing in the lobby area. This completely ruined the ambience of this historic place. There are no televisions or phones. There is no wifi. We don't need to have XM Radio. They need to stick with the live music on the second floor balcony.
The rooms are very well kept. Don't expect a quiet nights sleep as you can hear everyone around you. We brought a sound machine and it worked out great.
The dining room experience was at best average. They offer fairly unique choices of food and have a limited dinner buffet. I would call the food quality average. The prices are WAY too high for what you get ($30 for a the buffet). I think they would be better off making the menu a little more main stream (you don't have to offer bison and pheasant) such as burgers and steaks and bringing the prices down a bit. The dining staff was very friendly and did a great job.
Bottom line: Make sure you have appropriate expectations when going here. Again, you are in a National Park. You should come for the environment and not necessarily the amenities. Overall, the Old Faithful Inn does a good job with what they have to work with. Enjoy the surroundings (geysers, animals, trees, etc)...that's what this is all about.
