The Wort Hotel was built in downtown Jackson, Wyoming, United States by brothers John and Jess Wort, who were significant figures in the transformation of the economy of Jackson Hole from ranching to tourism. The somewhat Tudor-style building was the first luxury hotel in Jackson.
The two-story building features brick facing, with half-timbering and stucco on the second floor and a series of gables facing the street. The hotel was built on property that had been bought by Charles Wort, father of John and Jess, who operated a livery stable on the site from 1915 to 1932. From 1932 to 1940 the Wort Family operated what is now Signal Mountain Lodge in Grand Teton National Park until the Wort Hotel was opened in 1941. In 1950 the Silver Dollar Bar was added, with 2032 uncirculated silver dollars embedded in the surface of the bar.
Since opening in 1941, The Wort Hotel has exemplified historic charm while providing luxury amenities and services making it Jackson Hole’s finest boutique hotel. The Wort, a non-smoking hotel, features 55 majestic guest rooms, including five sophisticated Western Theme Suites. All of our guest rooms combine the heritage and intimacy of a world-class western lodge and the exceptional service of a grand hotel.
