After 20 years of planning and a four-year renovation project, the historic Mammoth Hot Springs Hotel will formally reopen in Yellowstone National Park August 30. A ribbon-cutting ceremony is scheduled from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.
The $30 million rehabilitation and renovation of the 1938 hotel was completed this month. The work included the hotel, cottages, and a companion dining room. The park service and Xanterra Travel Collection teamed up to complete the project.
The renovation will maintain the hotel’s art moderne style, but add private bathrooms to guest rooms, new windows, new conference rooms, structural and seismic stabilization and ADA access. Electrical systems were upgraded.
NPS restoration specialists also carefully rehabilitated Robert Reamer’s famous wooden map in the Map Room.
