In Jackson, within walking distance of restaurants and attractions, and about a 30-minute drive to Jackson Hole Mountain Resort
The Lexington is located in a great spot in Jackson -- within walking distance to multiple restaurants, including fine dining, cafes, bars, and fast-food chains. Other activities and attractions are located within a 5- to 10-minute walk as well, such as the Teton Theatre and the Jackson Hole Historical Society. Although it's about a 30-minute drive for skiing, the hotel has a free shuttle that transports guests to and from the mountain.
A short walk through Jackson can at times feel like an Epcot experience. In the span of a few blocks, you'll find lively pubs serving elk meat gyros, kitschy cowboy bars where locals and après skiers nurse their beers, high fallutin' haut cuisine restaurants and maybe a ho-down or two. Combine this with the fact that you're surrounded by some of the vastest and most untouched natural beauty in the country, and mere miles away from some of the most challenging skiing in the world, and it becomes easy to see why the town has grown into the charming, vibrant place that it is today.
The 89-room Lexington at Jackson Hole Hotel & Suites offers clean, spacious rooms with a decent number of free perks. Although designs are fairly ordinary, with off-white walls, some tube TVs, and standard furnishings that could use updating, this hotel's strengths lie in its convenient location in Jackson and its personal touches, such as the homemade cookies served in the afternoon. The Lexington offers other conveniences, too, including the free airport shuttle and free ski shuttle. The hotel lacks facilities, though, with just one small pool and no spa or restaurant. But with its great location, there's still plenty to do within a short walk.
