Jackson Hole, Wyoming
The Wort Hotel
What it is
A 1941 55-room legend with a lauded 200-piece art collection, infamous Silver Dollar Bar & Grill, and lots of live jam sessions (BYO cowboy boots).
What it isn't
Lacking luxuries. Doting concierges will plan your itinerary and restaurant reservations (just ask); you’ll have nightly turn-down and can order breakfast in bed; and every guest receives a yellow rose—an ancient symbol of welcome.
What we think
John Wayne-types will feel right at home at The Wort Hotel, thanks to in-room lodgepole pine furniture and rawhide and fallen-antler lighting fixtures. But that’s about where the “Only-in-Wyoming” touches end. These guest rooms are secretly sumptuous, thanks to locally crafted bedspreads and throw pillows, plus custom toiletries that will make you feel like you’re bunking in your own spa. Plus, there are plenty of homey touches in each one, including Keurig coffee makers and larger fridges. Because they start at 350 square feet, we’d recommend upgrading to a Grand Room (400 square feet) or, better, the two-room, 700-square-foot Shoshone Suite, named for the region’s indigenous peoples, with a carved wood bar Mr. Wayne would happily belly up to.
You're here because
You have a special affinity for all things historic, and love that the property is home to some 4,000 silver dollars from 1921—many of them inlaid in the bars.
Vegas has nothing on the Silver Dollar Bar, where the coin pieces glimmer in the neon lights. And one glance at their menu proves you’re in Wyoming, anyway. After a day in the saddle, you can’t help but order their wild game meatballs—made of buffalo and elk, and served with rhubarb balsamic barbecue sauce. Howdy, cowboy.
