Many Glacier Hotel

Glacier National Park, USA

Built by the Great Northern Railway in 1914-15, the chalet-style Many Glacier Hotel has an unbeatable setting on the shores of Swiftcurrent Lake inside Glacier National Park. Partially renovated in 2016, this historic five-story accommodation has 205 guest rooms, all of them rustic, yet comfortable, with modest amenities befitting the era in which it was constructed. While guest rooms don’t compare with a deluxe room in a modern hotel, the hotel’s absolutely panoramic location is majestic, with moose and bears often in view from the hotel grounds. There is no television or air conditioning, some rooms have no elevator access, and the WiFi is spotty.
