The 124 rooms and suites at Four Seasons Resort Jackson Hole, the first slopeside Four Seasons in the world, are among the largest in the valley. They’re also among the most expensive. One visit to the ski concierge or an afternoon spent in the heated outdoor pool – where fur-clad Snow Angels deliver S’mores and Icicles, a cocktail/dessert served in a freshly-made waffle cone -- and you’ll be sold, though. The 11,600-square foot spa is a worthy reason to go for a half-day lift ticket. Each of the 16 treatment rooms has its own fireplace. The resort’s art collection includes over 2,000 pieces spanning 18th and 19th century European to late 20th century surrealism; the hour-long iPod art tour is a great antidote for aching quads.

Several years ago Travel & Leisure readers ranked the 31-room Rusty Parrot Inn, hidden on a side street just a few blocks from the Town Square in downtown Jackson, the #1 hotel in North America (and 28th best in the world). It could have been because of the overstuffed beds, down comforters and Italian-made Anichini linens, the afternoon tea service (complete with fresh cookies or scones) or the intimate Wild Sage restaurant, which Mountain Living Magazine selected as a “Top Mountain Restaurant” in 2008.

Teton Mountain Lodge's 145 rooms all have 310 thread-count sheets, goose down comforters, goose down pillows, chenille throws, and bathrobes you'll never want to take off. Because this is a condo hotel, many rooms also have kitchens. The hotel also has a rooftop hot tub (it has five hot tubs in total). Soak your tired muscles while reaching out and touching the Tetons. When you're hungry, there's Cascade Restaurant, which serves upscale breakfasts, lunches and dinners. (Ski boots and clothing are still entirely appropriate though.) Solitude Spa – named a "Hot Spa 2008" by Conde Nast Traveler – is smaller than the Four Seasons Spa, but the Four Seasons Spa doesn’t have a rooftop yoga and Pilates motion studio.

Just a few blocks from Jackson’s Town Square on a quiet side street, The Alpine House is often overlooked. Uber-hospitable, run by former Olympians, and serving one of the best breakfasts around, it’s hard to say why. Each of the 22 rooms has a gas-lit fireplace, deep soaking tub, private balcony, Egyptian linens and European down comforters. The inn has even gone so far as to develop its own line of bath amenities, Alpine House Botanicals. Of course they are all-natural and hand-crafted, and they are used in the property’s intimate spa, appropriately named The Little Spa, which offers massage and spa treatments. (In case you’re wondering, owner Nancy Johnstone is a six-year veteran of the U.S. Biathlon team and competed at the 1992 Olympics in Albertville, France; husband Hans was a member of the U. S. Ski Team for five years and skied for the 1988 Olympic team in Nordic combined events in Calgary.)

You could stay at Jackson’s Motel 6, which is a couple of miles south of downtown Jackson next to Kmart. Or you could stay one block from the Town Square at the Ranch Inn, which is usually cheaper than Motel 6. Ranch Inn rooms aren’t anything fancy, but they are clean and comfortable and a fair number face Snow King Mountain Resort and have private decks.
Surprising for the price, Ranch Inn rooms come with a complimentary continental breakfast, wireless Internet access, access to an indoor hot tub, 24-hour front desk service, and on-site parking. Some rooms have extras like wood burning fireplaces and kitchens or kitchenettes.

Condo/House Rental Options: From one-bedroom and loft condos built immediately adjacent to the tram dock in the late 1970s to a four-bedroom luxury lodge at Shooting Star, an exclusive development adjacent to Teton Village that includes a five-star clubhouse and intimate spa, Jackson Hole Resort Lodging offers the largest number of condo and house rentals in Teton Village. They also have properties to rent at The Aspens and Teton Pines, both about five miles towards Jackson from Teton Village. They sometimes offer some pretty sweet deals that often include airfare and lift tickets too.
