Our favourite rooms
The Grand Teton Suite on the top (third) storey of the hotel is blessed with the most dramatic panoramas (which you can admire from the huge sunken bath), but space-wise, the ground-floor Sena Suite takes the cookie, with 725 square feet to play in. Since every suite looks out over the mountains, when it comes to views, there isn’t a bad room in the house. Ask for one of the four corner suites for the full wrap-around vista.
On a sandstone terrace overlooking the mountains, there’s a spectacular 35m pool and whirlpool tub. Both are heated, which makes for wonderful winter dips.
Book an après-ski (or sport or lengthy-flight) massage, seaweed body treatment or healing therapy at the resort spa. You can also request in-suite massages and treatments.
Some higher-tier rooms come with spotting scopes, but if you’re booked in elsewhere, bring some binoculars for wildlife-spotting and mountain close-ups. With sunsets like this, a camera goes without saying.
Two rooms are adapted to accommodate mobility-impaired guests
Very welcome. Cots are free for babies; extra beds for older children are US$100 a night. Babysitting costs US$20 an hour (four-hour minimum).
Customers have the option of donating US$2 (or more) a night to the Jackson Hole Land Trust, which works to preserve the landscape and wildlife of the area.
