World-class Teton Range skiing by day and classy, stylish digs by night is what you’ll find in Jackson Hole, Wyoming. This ski region effortlessly combines elements of the old West with modern touches to appeal to world-class travelers, and of course, hard-core skiers. Journalist Stacey Lastoe shares four of her favorite Jackson Hole hotels below.
Enlisting wood and stone in design features, this luxurious property nods to the marvelous backdrop of surrounding mountains, dense forests, and rolling plains, all set under a great big sky full of shimmering stars. Ski in and ski out to Rendezvous and Aprés Vous Mountains, or arrange for a heli-ski adventure or perhaps an afternoon of dog-sledding.
Located at the base of Jackson Hole Mountain Resort, this exclusive property has just eight suites—four four-bedroom and four two-bedroom— and an array of fitting amenities ranging from an in-house ski shop and a state-of-the-art yoga studio. In spite of the luxe digs, the overall aesthetic, particularly evidenced in outdoor areas with fire pits and in-room fireplaces, keeps guests grounded in the spirit of Wyoming’s wilderness.
Custom Woolrich blankets, custom metal beds by Studio Tack, and Overhead rain showers by Waterworks are a few details discerning travelers will discover at this 50-room hotel off the town square. Be sure to belly up to the bar at onsite restaurant Glorietta, where you can warm up during the festive season with one of the menu’s Holiday Tipples, like the potent Tyrolean Toddy made with rum, tequila, ginger, honey, and lemon.
Located in the heart of downtown, this 59-room hotel (four of these are spacious suites; all have natural gas fireplaces) manages to retain authentic Western charm packaged in a modern boutique hotel experience. Nespresso machines, l’Occitane bath products, and a Geneva Bluetooth Sound System provide creature comforts at the family-run property, where staff thrill at letting guests in on all the secret places for backcountry adventure. The rooftop hot tub is enticing after a day at Yellowstone National Park.
Situated in Jackson Hole’s historic Town Square, The Cloudveil, Autograph Collection is a refined boutique hotel designed to reflect its surrounding natural environment. The 96-key stay boasts a rugged stone exterior that naturally gives way to its après ski chic interiors: earth-toned furnishings, pale wood floorings, and nature photographs adorn each space. With close proximity to Grand Teton National Park and Yellowstone National Park, The Cloudveil’s cozy lounge spaces and indoor fireplaces provide the perfect respite after a day of outdoor activities.
