Yellowstone National Park, WY
Sprawling Canyon Lodge is located on the east side of Yellowstone National Park near the Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone River. Extensively renovated in 2016 to be a trailblazer in sustainable national park lodging, the complex features five separate LEED-certified buildings incorporating extensive recycled or renewable materials and highly energy-efficient constructions. Canyon Lodge was named one of The New York Times' top five hotels for eco-conscious travelers. The lodge incorporates both updated and new construction to create a harmonious setting blending contemporary elements with traditional architectural details in a nod to the park's past. Heavy beams, standing log floor lamps, peeled pine beds, two-panel hardwood doors, and mullioned windows framed by pine shutters enhance the classic Old West atmosphere, in a variety of room configurations, all with private en suite bath. In keeping with the historic character of park accommodations, rooms do not include TV or air conditioning.
