Learn a Little More About Us

Just one block from Jackson’s iconic Town Square, where each of the corners is topped by an arch made of elk antlers, Hotel Jackson is a luxury, LEED-built, boutique hotel in Jackson Hole, Wyoming. Given the same name as the first hotel to open in Jackson (in the early 1900s), today’s Hotel Jackson is steeped in local heritage and authenticity. Our modern design blends Western history and rustic design elements with contemporary forms and materials. Although Hotel Jackson is in as urban a location as can be found in Wyoming, inspiring everything about our aesthetic is this valley’s spectacular landscape, which guests can be skiing or hiking in after only a short five-minute drive. Hotel Jackson brings together the best of Jackson Hole.

Hotel Jackson has 55 rooms, four of which are suites. The hotel’s light-filled, relaxing lobby sets the tone for the rest of the property. We think the veins running through the stone floor here look like the rivers and streams that flow through the valley. Warm wood, patinated metal, and leather invoke a sense of place and pay homage to our Western heritage. A two-story, wood-burning fireplace is warming in the literal sense. Textiles include traditional and contemporary Native American inspired carpets (designed by our founder), and much of the artwork is by artists represented in local galleries.

Our FIGS restaurant and lounge are comfortable and welcoming places to unwind and enjoy wine and local craft beers, specialty cocktails, and authentic Lebanese cuisine. In-room dining is available for a late-night snack, or an intimate private dinner.

History

Jim Darwiche moved to Jackson Hole in 1977 after falling for its scenery and friendly community. With his wife, Safaa, he opened several businesses in the valley and, after a friend suggested he speak at a school board meeting, became involved in local government. Proud of his community and thankful for what he calls his “dream life,” Jim wanted to share the beauty of the area and the unique character of Jackson Hole’s community with visitors. Thus, Hotel Jackson was born. With the help of Safaa and their sons, Sadek and Dorian, Hotel Jackson is the Darwiche family’s passion project. Through it, the Darwiches are committed to giving back to the community and area they love.

The hotel is named after the first hotel to open in Jackson, back in the early 1900s. The original Hotel Jackson was one of the first five buildings to be built in town and was on the northwest corner of the Town Square, just around the corner from the Darwiche family’s Hotel Jackson and where Legacy Gallery is today.
