Glacier Park Lodge

Glacier National Park, USA

Situated at the southeast corner of Glacier National Park, Glacier Park Lodge was the first hotel ever built by the Great Northern Railway (in 1913). Inside the grand lobby, massive Douglas fir logs tower above and a fire crackles in the big stone fireplace. Guest rooms are somewhat basic, as is expected in a 100-year-old national park hotel, but the historic lobby and public spaces are stunning and sunset views from the terrace are spectacular. There is no television or air conditioning.
