Hotel Terra Jackson Hole, A Noble House Resort strikes an ideal balance between luxury and crunchiness. It’s a completely modern hotel that’s LEED certified. Nontoxic paints and carpets, low-flow water fixtures, the use of reclaimed or sustainable woods throughout, 100 percent organic mattresses, in-room recycling — the list goes on. The décor also takes its cues from its surroundings with sunset-hued walls, striking wildlife photography and natural textures, from rough-hewn woods to cowhide.
Bed & Bath
Rooms have a cozy, clean-lined modernism with dark wood headboards, moss green blankets and cowhide lamps. Flat-screen TVs and iPod docking stations are standard; most rooms have gas fireplaces. All have oversized picture windows looking onto stunning Jackson Hole views. Double vanity bathrooms have deep-soak tub-shower combos.
There’s no more indulgent way to unwind after a long day of hiking or skiing than with a soak in the sexy slopeside hot tub. Follow that up with a massage and a eucalyptus steam at the Chill Spa, which overlooks the Tetons. Then settle in for wood-oven pizzas, antipasti and some bottles from the stellar wine list at the hotel’s Il Villagio Osteria. Out of the seven luxury lodges in Teton Village at the base of Jackson Hole Mountain Resort, the eco-chic Hotel Terra is the youngest and undoubtedly the coolest, so you don’t have to leave the hotel to be in the middle of the scene.
In the Area
The Snake River flows through the Jackson Hole valley and its twists and turns can accommodate everything from adrenaline-pumping whitewater rafting to chilled out floats to fly fishing. Head to nearby Yellowstone National Park for hiking in the summer and for showshoeing and dog-sledding in the winter. At night it’s all about indulgence, whether you want a romantic fondue dinner by a roaring fire at the Bavarian-style Alpenhof Lodge in Teton Village, nouveau American fare at Couloir or a rowdy Western time at Million Dollar Cowboy Bar in Jackson, where the barstools are saddles and country/bluegrass bands jam nightly.
How to Get There
I stayed in Suite 467 as I have many times before. I arrived Oct. 17 and departed on Oct 19, 2018 (most reviews are old). The person outside when we arrived checked us in but never came to help with luggage even though he said he would.There were 3 of us and we used the Murphy bed, which was comfortable. The main blind in the room could be lowered, but then we could not get it back up. We called for Engineering who came and said the gear was stripped so it was no longer workable. The rain shower heads were leaking water out the sides and the faucet to turn on the shower in the master bath was hanging by a thread...... able to shut off but barely attached. The master bath floor was filthy with dried puddles around the front of the toilet and in front of the vanity. I cleaned most up with a wet towel to find the floor was not clean. I put down towels for the rest of our stay. I could not get the floor to heat nor the room to heat over 66 degrees in spite of using the buttons I have used successfully many times before in this suite. The sheets were clean but not tucked in all the way around.
The hotel was terrific with comfortable beds, a great shower, and an amazing staff! The lobby was also very comfortable with a fireplace that was always going. I will definitely be bringing my family here in the future.
I was not impressed with this hotel and am surprised it is so highly rated. The first thing I saw as we entered the lobby is that the doors had chipped paint, then I noticed that the rug needed vacuuming...a lot! There was no one available to help us with our suitcases.
The furniture in our room was old. It, too, had chips on it and the style was like something our of the 1960's. There was a large stain on the carpet. The beds were on platforms that were larger than the mattresses and, therefore, had sharp wooden corners sticking out. The sinks in the bathroom did not match and had entirely different faucets. This is not a 5 star hotel!
The dining room is not attractive and the food was not great...although expensive.
I know this sounds as if i have an ax to grind...I don't. The hotel was just a big disappointment.
Each time we come to Jackson we choose to stay at Terra! Charming with just the right atmosphere to make a city slicker or cowboy feel right at home. The Chill Spa is perfect and quaint! So easy to relax and not have a care especially with such a pleasant and welcoming staff! We will be back...
Our stay at Hotel Terra was unforgettable! The staff was so nice and accommodating. Our suite was very comfortable and well stocked with all of the essentials. The view from our room was amazing! I definitely recommend staying here when visiting Jackson Hole and Teton National Park!
