Cody
The Irma Hotel is a landmark in Cody, Wyoming. It was built by William F. "Buffalo Bill" Cody, the city's co-founder and namesake who named it after his daughter Irma Cody. A focal point is a famous back bar made of cherry that was a gift given by Queen Victoria to Buffalo Bill. The Irma opened with a party on November 18, 1902, to which Cody invited the press and dignitaries from as far away as Boston. The hotel quickly became the social center of Cody. In the meantime, Buffalo Bill was under pressure from creditors and was forced to sign over the hotel to his wife Louisa in 1913, who was at that time on bad terms with him. After Cody's death in 1917 the hotel was foreclosed upon and sold to Barney Link. Before the end of the year Link's estate sold the property back to Louisa, who kept it until she died in 1925. The new owners, Henry and Pearl Newell, gradually expanded the hotel, building an annex around 1930 on the west side to accommodate automobile-borne visitors. After her husband's death in 1940, Pearl Newell operated the hotel until her own death in 1965. She left the hotel's extensive collection of Buffalo Bill memorabilia to the Buffalo Bill Historical Center, and stipulated that proceeds from the estate be used as an endowment for the museum. The Irma Hotel is still open for business as both a hotel and restaurant. It is included on the National Register of Historic Places, listed in 1973. It is located on the Main Street of Cody.

West Yellowstone
The hotel was renovated in 2014 with a design for sustainability and now is part of the overall IHG Green project within the Holiday Inn Corporation. Green IHG hotels track and manage their energy, carbon and water usage thus improving their carbon footprint and reduction in water use. Some of the ways they do this is by smart facility design, selected lighting through out the property, and the use bio-friendly cleaning materials. The town of West Yellowstone is the most centrally located entrance to Yellowstone National Park. The hotel is located within walking distance (ranging from two - eight blocks) to numerous attractions including Yellowstone National Park West entrance (3 blocks); Grizzly/Wolf Discovery Center; Yellowstone IMAX Theater, Museum of the Yellowstone, Madison Canyon Earthquake Lake Visitors Center, plus numerous shops, restaurants, playhouses, and miles of walking trails.

Moran
First designating the Teton Range and 7 southerly Piedmont lakes as a National Park in 1929, Grand Teton National Park would struggle for 21 more years before adding an additional 200,000 plus acres to form the Park we enjoy today. With the enlargement of the Park in 1950, the publicity surrounding the successful conservation of Jackson Hole attracted many more visitors. More than 587,000 visitors came to the new Park in 1951 and there were not enough facilities to accommodate them. Feeling somewhat responsible for bringing so many visitors to the Park, John D. Rockefeller, Jr. was asked what could he do about the situation, he responded “I supposed I ought to build a hotel”. Early on, with a picnic lunch in hand, John D. Rockefeller, Jr. would often hike to the top of Moose Hill and gaze out upon the Willows and the towering Teton Range. Legend has it that this view influenced the location where he would eventually build Jackson Lake Lodge. Constructed in 1955, near what is now called “Lunch Tree Hill”, the Lodge is a tribute to the vision and the lasting memories that one special moment can create. Jackson Lake Lodge was designated a National Historic Landmark in 2003. Designed by Gilbert Stanley Underwood, who previously had designed the Ahwahnee, Bryce Canon, and North Rim Grand Canyon lodges, Jackson Lake Lodge combines some elements of these earlier rustic style buildings with the modern International style. This breakthrough opened the way for many modernistic visitor centers and accommodations in National Parks built under the Mission 66 initiative to accommodate major increases in visitation after WWII. The integrity of the Jackson Lake Lodge and its associated buildings, the exceptional importance of the integrated modern/rustic architectural design of the building, and its association Gilbert Stanley Underwood, contribute to its exceptional national significance under National Historic Landmark criteria.
