Oyster Review Summary

Photos and Review by Oyster.com Investigators

Pros

  • Good location in the center of town
  • Rooms are spacious with large flat-screen TVs
  • Free shuttle to the slopes during the winter
  • Free cider and cookies during the winter
  • Tasty on-site restaurant and a fitness center
  • Free Wi-Fi and free parking
  • On the National Register of Historic Places

Cons

  • No spa
  • No pool or Jacuzzi
  • Some rooms feel dark with dated decor

Bottom Line

Originally opened in 1941, the historic Wort Hotel (it's listed on the National Register of Historic Places) is a cozy ski lodge in downtown Jackson within walking distance of numerous shops and bars. The 59 large rooms embrace the Western theme that's standard in this area (with cowboy paintings and Western-style comforters) without being overly kitschy, and the on-site restaurant is a popular destination. The Silver Dollar Bar, built in 1950, gets its name from the bar covered in 2,032 uncirculated Morgan Silver Dollars from the Denver mint. The hotel has a fitness center, but unlike larger resorts, there is no spa or Jacuzzi.

Oyster Hotel Review

 Location

In downtown Jackson, within walking distance of shops and restaurants

The Wort Hotel is near the center of downtown, within walking distance of numerous shops and restaurants. Some slopes are within walking distance too, but with skis and boot, you may want to drive.

A short walk through Jackson can at times feel like an Epcot experience. In the span of a few blocks, you'll find lively Wild-West taverns serving elk meat gyros, high-end day spas, kitschy cowboy bars where locals and skiers nurse their beers, gourmet restaurants, and maybe a ho-down or two. Combine this with the fact that you're surrounded by some of the most vast, unkempt 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.

Jackson serves as a year-round gateway for tourists visiting Jackson Hole Ski Resort, Yellowstone National Park, and Grand Teton National Park, the combination of which makes the area the ultimate outdoorsman's paradise. Of course, this also brings a tourist trap element to the city, but given its remote location and authentic Old-West vibe, it all comes off more appealingly than one might expect. It may also be one of the few places you can find great Thai food and a taxidermist next door to one another.

  • 15-minute drive to Jackson Hole Airport
  • 2-minute walk to Town Square
  • 6-minute walk from Snake River Brewery and Restaurant, a popular microbrewery
  • 17-minute walk or 4-minute drive to the National Elk Refuge visitor center
  • 17-minute walk or 5-minute drive to skiing at Snow King Resort
  • 20-minute drive to Craig Thomas Visitor Center, a starting point for Grand Teton National Park
  • 28-minute drive to Jackson Hole Mountain Resort
