We recently had a family gathering before the holidays in Jackson, Wyoming and chose the Rusty Parrot for all to stay. We have been in Jackson Hole area many times and have stayed at a wide variety of places between downtown and the Teton Village ski area. If you want to try staying in town for the convenience of shopping and restaurants, the Rusty Parrot by far exceeded our expectations mainly in the level of service they provided to us as visitors.
We had difficulty (as many do) getting into Jackson in the winter months making it necessary to drive in from Salt Lake vice the flight we expected to take. Not only did the front desk give us the best directions and weather enroute, but had a lovely bottle of wine and fresh fruit waiting in our rooms upon our late arrival into Jackson.
The rooms were exceptionally comfortable with down comforters and fireplaces making a winter trip there even more enjoyable. The room includes breakfast each morning in their fabulous seating area off of the lobby with a large river rock fireplace blazing away each day. The chef that we had mainly was "Edmond", and he was fantastic. Besides the specials available to pick from, he would make anything asked to accomodate your appetite that morning. The breakfasts were superb and the hospitality of the breakfast wait staff impeccable. Although we did not take advantage of dinner in the restaurant, it is lauded by all locals as one of the best places to eat in the town for a truly gourmet meal.
We did use the spa services, which - while not as "fancy" as the services you'll receive up in the Teton Village at the Avanyu Spa or others - were very convenient and relatively cheaper than most boutique spas for the services provided for great massage and therapy services.
Concierge and bell staff provided outstanding services by clearing cars on snowy days prior to our departure and arranging and recommending a large variety of activities....some at a much better rate than you could get on your own. What more could we expect?!
The only problems encountered was that one of the rooms occupied by our family was on the top floor, but still above the kitchen -- when in operation, it could be noisy as it appeared that the kitchen shared the same flue as our fireplace flue when the ventilator over the grill/oven was turned on (this was room 301 -- comfortable room, but had this issue between 6/7AM and restaurant closing). Now to become independently wealthy to become a full-time resident at the hotel!
The Rusty Parrot has it over all the others for the level of service provided in a western quaint and very comfortable environment.
