We stayed at the Old Faithful Snow Lodge during a family trip to Yellowstone in September 2010. The lodge is very centrally located, just across a parking lot area from the Old Faithful Inn, the new Old Faithful Visitor's Center, and the upper geyser basin.
The hotel is extremely clean and very quiet. We had two rooms on the side of the hotel overlooking the new visitors center -- and while we didn't have a direct geyser view, we could see it erupting behind the visitors center. (We had buffalo wandering through the parking lot in between the Snow Lodge and the Old Faithful Inn so be on the lookout for wildlife!)
Each room had 2 comfortable double beds and an extremely clean bathroom with a tub/shower combo. As in all National Park hotels, there is no phone and no television. But we had excellent iPhone reception there -- a surprise in the middle of a National Park! There was a Keurig coffee/tea maker in each room as well as a provided hair dryer and toiletries (including really cute bear shaped soaps!)
The hotel lobby is stunning with high beamed ceilings. There are several common areas with comfy sofas and chairs to relax in front of the fire after a long day of visiting the park. The hotel has porters to help guests to their rooms with luggage. The front desk staff is very friendly and helpful and knowledgeable about the park. Geyser eruption times are posted behind the front desk.
Attached to the Snow Lodge is the Obsidian dining room, which has really nice steak dinners in the evenings, and a good buffet breakfast. They will also pack tasty sack lunches for you to take along with you for your daily excursions/hikes -- highly recommended since food is few and far between in the park! Also attached to the Snow Lodge is a gas station, a souvenir/grocery store, an ice cream shop, a gift shop, and the Geyser Grill which serves pretty tasty fast food items mid-day.
We were very pleased with our stay at the Snow Lodge and highly recommend it as a clean and comfortable place to stay in Yellowstone.
