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 staff and location. Room nice too. Enjoyed our stay. Nice upstairs deck to relax. enjoyed the chocolates left every night.
Restaurant was just okay, but that wasn't the main reason we stayed there.
I usually don't take the time to leave reviews, although this was our first trip to Jackson.. Our Anniversary,.. okay, I could probably speak for hours of the beauty that surrounds this magnificent place... we spent a half day in Yellowstone, which was just a teaser, definitely need a few days up there. The Tetons were absolutely stunning, beyond beautiful..!! The town of Jackson is very inviting.. we loved every minute.. The Rusty Parrot was our choice for this trip, the place is extremely welcoming, comfortable, great food and a wonderful staff.. Jennifer at the front desk is a very special person, she went out of her way to make our stay memorable to say the least.. when we return to Jackson, which will be soon, we will definitely stay at the Rusty Parrot, without question..
Provides the unique ambiance of atmosphere of Jackson. The hotel’s restaurant is small and in my opinion has the best food in town. Location is great and walking distance from everywhere.
There’s plenty of parking right outside.
I stayed here with my family in May. We were taken by this charming and cozy hotel in the heart of Downtown Jackson, WY. The staff is superb, attentive to all your needs and very helpful. We felt like we were leaving our friends at the end of our stay. The ala carte breakfast was also excellent, in a quaint and elegant restaurant in the hotel. here again, the chef and wait staff are courteous, capable and very helpful.
We couldn't have been more pleased by our stay here last week. The staff was unfailingly friendly and helpful. The location was perfect for walks into town or drives into the park. The restaurant was amazing.
We especially appreciated the advice offered at the front desk for things to do (not that there is a shortage of that in Jackson). The convenience of booking outings via the helpful staff at the front desk was also a big plus.
