A huge thank you to the Kalispell Red Lion for providing us with an amazing night sleep during our visit to Glacier National Park! I am still dreaming of the amazing beds at this hotel! I really wish I would have pulled the sheets off to find out who the mattresses were made by. Yes, They were that comfortable!!! John and I have had multiple conversations about how amazing we slept at the Kalispell Red Lion. I am pretty sure it was the best nights sleep I have had in years.
The Red Lion Hotel in Kalispell is so easy to find! The hotel is located right off of Main Street and is attached to the Kalispell Center Mall. If you find that you have forgotten anything you can walk right over to the mall and pick it up. We had a great time walking over to the mall and picking up some ice cream since it was so warm out.
The lobby of the Kalispell Red Lion is gorgeous!!! Seriously amazingly gorgeous! I would have been content curling up in one of the plush chairs reading for an hour or two.
I love a hotel that gets it. They know you are traveling with your family and you have kids that probably need some form of entertainment if they are not completely worn out after a day in Glacier National Park. There are shelves of games in the lobby of the Kalispell Red Lion. There is a wide variety of games perfect for any age. They also have a beautiful indoor swimming pool and hot tub!
Doesn’t the pool look seriously inviting! I really wish I could jump in it right now and just lounge for a few hours in the water.
Right outside the pool area there is a beautiful courtyard with fire pit. We sadly did not make it back to the hotel in time to sit and enjoy the fireplace. This is definitely on our list for our next visit. I love the waterfall and ponds. The courtyard is easily accessible from the hotel and the perfect way to end a fun day in Glacier National Park. I think next time John and I might bring some smores with us and sit back next to the fireplace to discuss all of our adventures in Glacier National Park.
Now I have to share with you the most amazing bed ever! I mean seriously look at the size of the mattress. When you lay down on it you just sink into pure bliss and relaxation. I had the best night sleep in this bed that I have had in years. John and I are still talking about this mattress and how we wish we would have pulled back the sheets to find out who made it. I don’t think the hotel would have liked me strapping the mattress to the top of the Jeep but I thought about asking them if I could buy it. Yep it was that comfy! I am dreaming of another night sleep in this bed!
I have to say it again the Red Lion Hotel Brand understands travelers and does everything they can to make our lives a little bit easier! I carry a ton of camera equipment, laptop, iPad, cell phones you name it that all needs to be charged nightly. I was so happy to see a power strip next to the desk in our room. I didn’t have to hunt for every single power outlet in the room and crawl on my hands and knees to get behind the desk or nightstands the Red Lion Kalispell made it so easy for me to charge everything.
Now that you have had an amazing night sleep it is time for breakfast! The Red Lion Kalispell offers a Roaring Start Breakfast with your room! They have a great seating area and breakfast set up right in the hotel. One suggestion I have is to not get there 10 minutes before breakfast closes like we did. It seems everyone in the hotel was enjoying their seriously comfy beds and put off getting out of bed until the last minute. Not that I can blame them since that is what we did also. I pushed the snooze button 4 times because I didn’t want to get out of the bed.
One of my favorite parts of the Roaring Start Breakfast was the Red Lion Waffles. It was such a fun treat to pull out our waffles and see the Red Lion emblem on them. They were not only super cute but tasted great also. The Roaring Start Breakfast also had an omelette station that you could customize your choice of ingredients for your omelette. They had a variety of pastries, coffee, ice water, juice and cereal also available.
One of the most amazing parts of our stay at the Red Lion Kalispell other than the mattress I can’t stop talking about was the staff. The staff at this hotel went above and beyond what I ever would have expected. When I asked a couple of questions about Glacier National Park the front desk staff instantly printed off the information for me and showed me a map with the best way to get to the park. The staff at the Roaring Start Breakfast were all smiling and so friendly even though you know they started the day super early. They told us to have a great day and to enjoy the park. Overall I was so impressed with the staff of this hotel and the amenities it offered. I can’t wait to plan another trip to Glacier National Park and stay at the Red Lion Kalispell.
The Red Lion Kalispell is located at 20 N. Main Street, Kalispell, Montana.
