Jackson has traditionally been the province of dated motels at the edge of town, but the Rusty Parrot stands as the in-town outpost of upscale lodging. The hotel evokes the feel of the grand lodges of the Adirondacks, with exposed hand-hewn wood and stone, a roaring fireplace that greets you in the lobby, an attentive staff (the front desk is often manned by the owner) and a fantastic spa.
Bed and Bath
Each room at the Rusty Parrot is unique, but all have the finest linens, plush towels, soft terry robes and slippers, L’Occitane bath amenities, flat-screen satellite television and free wireless Internet. Baths have large, deep tubs for soaking after a day spent rambling through the mountains.
While other ski towns attempt to reinvent themselves as four-season destinations, Jackson doesn’t have to. With the exception of a few slow weeks in April and May, it’s one of the only top ski towns that’s just as busy in summer (if not more so), when it’s a major gateway to Yellowstone National Park and Grand Teton National Park. Grand Teton was recently enhanced by an enormous donation of land between the ski resort and the park entrance that makes it even bigger — and closer than ever.
How to Get There
Great 5 night stay with what family to explore Jackson Hole. Everyone at the Rusty Parrot were friendly and elevated the standards of service and guest experience. The food was outstanding from the Brioche French Toast at breakfast to the Bison Ribeye at dinner. Great experience within walking distance of Town Square yet off the tourist path and in a quiet part of town. Look forward to a return visit soon.
We had a lovely stay at the Rusty Parrot! Great food, fantastic massages, and fantastic service!!! Also loved the convenient location, access to bikes at any time, and jacuzzi on the balcony with a great view. Would highly recommend this place!
Highly personalized service. The accommodation is not spacious but adequate for a venue where most of your time is spent outdoors. Nice deck with firepit from where we watched the July 4 fireworks. The food at the hotel is excellent. The hotel is in the town of Jackson so all restaurants/stores are in walking distance.
