Yellowstone without the MH

I have a business trip in early September in Bozeman area and then plan on heading to Yellowstone area for two days with wife. This will be all hotels with rental car. Looking for any advice on what is a must see with just two days and recommended good places to stay. Tim

Over many years I've stayed at the Old Faithful Inn, Mammoth Hotel, Lake Lodge, Old Faithful Cabins, Lake Hotel and Grant Village. I'd recommend all except Grant Village, it's too much like a regular motel. I'd spend a day on each of the 'Grand Loop Roads.' From Bozeman, the northern loop would include an early morning trip up Lamar Valley to look for wildlife. a trip to the bottom of Tower Falls, perhaps a hike up Mt. Washburn, Canyon Visitor's Center, Artist's Point and Canyon Drive, Norris Geyser Basin and Ranger Museum at Norris Campgrounds, then back to Mammoth past the Obsidian Cliffs and a stop at Sheepeater Cliffs. Next day do the south loop, Hayden Valley (bison) Mud Volcano loop trail, Lake area, West Thumb Geyser Basin, Old Faithful, Paint Pots and other roadside attractions. Old Faithful Inn is my favorite place to stay, you can hear and feel Old Faithful erupt at night. Most hotels have formal dining rooms, many areas have cafeteria style dining also.

Mammoth would be nice in September because of all the elk hanging around and rut season.

Back from the trip

Thanks for the tips folks. Ended up only having one day available. Went in the West entrance and took the lower loop to Old Faithful and then around and out the North entrance. Great day with views of wildlife and fantastic scenery. Hope to go back in 10 years with the MH when we retire.
