On this final day of our tour the snow storm that began late yesterday continues this morning. We drove north to Taggart Lake, where we met a local outfitter who had snowshoes laid out in the parking lot at the trail head. After a little training, we started out single file along a trail. Within about an hour we were all back on the bus and …
Today we departed Yellowstone Park and continued through Grand Teton Park to Jackson Hole. Our luggage was loaded on top of the Bombardiers, and we headed south, crossing the Continental Divide three times. Shortly after exiting Yellowstone we stopped at Flagg Ranch for a transfer to a much more comfortable van. After a short stop at Ox Bow to view …

The second half of the trip was entering into the beauty of green grass along blue rivers, hills and mountains in the distance. We wound along the Snake River as we neared Jackson. Once in Jackson we circled the busy streets until we found a parking place for ...
We finally get to beautiful Wyoming, home to Grand Teton & Yellowstone National Parks, we have been looking forward to this since we started our road trip over 2 months ago. We arrived on a Saturday afternoon so the hope of greeting into a campground seemed slim but we decided to give it a go anyway. They had a few spots left at Signal Mountain which was a relief, beautiful campground on Jackson lake nestled in the pine trees. We spent the next 3 days ...

We relaxed for rest of the late afternoon, had a margarita on the beach and watched the sun set behind the Teton Mountain range.

TravelPod Member ReviewsThe Wort Hotel Jackson
Very colorful hotel with a long association with Hollywood and a famous bar (the Silver Dollar). My room was very comfortable, although the real visual feast was in the common areas of the hotel. I did not eat any meals there except breakfast and did not spend time in the bar.

Dinner was great. Too bad Glenn wanted to visit with another table instead of waiting on us

Historical Traveler Reviews The Wort Hotel Jackson
Wonderful Place to Stay
We stayed at the Wort for Thanksgiving of 2004. It was my husband and I and another couple. I had stayed at the wort a few times before and just loved it. My husband and friends had never been to Jackson Hole and they just loved the Wort. We had the Thanks giving buffet for lunch and it was just wonderful.
The front desk clerk went out of his way to help us with everything we needed. He set us up to go snow mobiling one day and told us the best places to eat.
The rooms are just wonderful. The details in the rooms are just amazing.
Its a a smaller place but it has charm written all over it.
I love the Wort and would recommend it to any one.
I've stayed at the Wort 4 times over the last few years and find it a good choice for a high end hotel in town. The facilities are a little tired but the rooms are large and comfortable. The restaurant and bar serve very good food. I like the convenient location and have had good luck with the person who arranges activities for guests.
The Wort is Wonderful!!!
As a person who travels weekly for work, I really did not know what to expect from the Wort Hotel. I was very impressed to say the least!
I made my plans to stay at the Wort while my wife and I went to Jackson Hole for some skiing and winter adventures. The concierge was more than helpful in lining up a number of great activities and the entire staff was courteous and accomodating to us. First Class Treatment!!!
The room was wonderfully decorated in the western style one would expect. The comfortable bed was decorated with high end linens and the Kohler filled bathroom was comfortable. I truly felt like the guest in a persons home.
The Silver Dollar Grill and Silver Dollar Bar made for no reason to leave the Wort at night. The breakfast and dinner at the Siver Dollar Grill were as good as any other meals that we ate while in Jackson. The Silver Dollar Bar featured live music and the bluegrass sounds from the band, Steam Powered Airplane made for a fun night.
I cannot wait to return to the Wort next year for more relaxation and fun.
Overall, it's not a bad hotel, it's certainly not a great hotel, but it is probably the best in downtown Jackson Hole. Very small room, with smaller bathroom. Clean enough, but not spotless (some mold in bathroom). No bellman when we arrived, had to carry our own luggage. Parking is a couple of blocks away; there's a parking valet, but as with the bellman, this service is not consistently available. The concierge is not helpful.
Even the locals say it's great!
Very comfortable, historic, pleasant stay. You can walk everywhere in Jackson from here! Our room was Broadway St side- a bit loud but the 2nd night I got smart & closed the drapes, definitly made the night quieter! Beautiful hotel- great amenities- great Aveeda products. Recommend Billy's Burgers for dinner- the best cheeseburger ever & the Bunnery for breakfast.
Nice to be spoiled now and then
My family of four spent 2 nights at the Wort in July 2004. We have an active 2 year old and a inquisitive 9 year old, who had just spent 4 days on a Wagon Train tour with me. She and I were ready for a real bed and no more mosquitos!
It was a grand entrance for a small hotel and very impressive. We went to our room which was large and decadently furnished with leather, denim and a great teddy bear on the bed.
The bathroom is smaller than I would have expected but the shower felt great and the toiletries were nice.
The beds were the best. Not too hard or soft, lots of pillows and nicely appointed. The view from our window was disappointing- a/c unit for the restaurant, but we didn't spend too much time looking out the window.
It is a great location for walking around Jackson. There is a large park nearby, lots of shops, decent and not to pricey restaurants.
Upon checkout, I didn't have the same card as what I booked with. They had to rebook the rooms, refund to my old card and charge my other card. Bit of a hassle BUT the rooms were $75 cheaper for some reason. The staff wasn't exactly sure why the rate dropped but they honored it.
I would love to stay there again but maybe this time with just the hubby.
Stayed at the Wort Hotel for one night last week. Loved the ambiance and the decor. Common rooms were decorated very nicely. Loved the bedrooms each one decorated wonderfully. The pillows were very flat though. I would definitely stay there again!!!
Just what you'd want in a ski town hotel
I stayed at the Wort for a week in mid-February 2005 while skiing at Jackson Hole. I loved it. My room was well appointed and comfortable. The staff welcomed me every day when I returned from the mountain, and provided useful advice about restaurants, getting around the valley, and activities. An especially nice touch was the hot cider and cookies in the upstairs lounge that are laid out every day from 4-7. A problem with my in-room internet access was handled graciously and promptly. I could not have been happier.
The hotel is located in downtown Jackson, in the midst of the area's best bars and restaurants. Getting to the local ski resorts (Jackson Hole, Snow King or Grand Targhee) is as easy as hopping on one of the plentiful public buses, hotel-provided shuttles or (in the case of GT) pay-shuttles, to the mountain. The 12-mile trip up the valley to Jackson Hole (where I spent all of my ski days) varies depending upon traffic, weather, and time of day from 15-35 minutes. A bit of a hassle perhaps, but trust me, at the end of the day you'll be happier staying in Jackson than up in Teton Village away from the nightlife.
The Wort's hotel bar has a substantial menu and a fine selection of beers for apres ski. There's good live music. For finer dining, the hotel's steakhouse restaruant has delicious chops and game meats, and an excellent wine list.
The Wort is a classic, warm, comfortable hotel. I highly recommend it to anyone travelling to Jackson for some winter fun.
Loved The Wort Hotel
You will not be disappointed by the Wort Hotel!
The rooms are luxurious with a rustic touch, and the staff was very helpful. Located in the center of Jackson Hole, it is the perfect base to stroll around town.
We ate breakfast in the restaurant downstairs and listened to fabulous live country music in the bar. The helpful concierge obtained rodeo tickets for us, which takes place Saturdays during the summer.
Great Hotel in the heart of Jackson Hole
We stayed at the Wort hotel June 14, 2004. We feel that the experience was worth the price.
What a surprise we had when we checked in. The staff were great, from the valet/bellhop to the front desk and even housekeeping. The room was large and had two queen size beds. The furniture in the room was very upscale with nice linens and bath robes. We ate dinner in the restaurant down stairs and the food was excellent. The location of the hotel in downtown Jackson Hole was close to the town square and all of the shops. We wish we could have stayed another two nights but our schedule would not permit. We will stay with them the next time we are there.
