Hotel Terra Jackson Hole
The alpine-luxe, LEED-Silver Hotel Terra—one mile from Grand Teton National Park and ski-in distance from Jackson Hole Mountain—mixes low-impact ethics with high-end aesthetics. Specially coated large windows regulate heat flow and showcase stunning views; plush towels and robes are made of fair-trade organic cotton; and the modern yet Western lobby has reclaimed-wood tables. The linens are 100 percent organic, as are the products at the spa. And the rooftop hot tub is maintained with nonchemical cleaners. Then there are several simple additions that we hope will become hospitality standards: aluminum dispensers in bathrooms (eliminating wasteful plastic containers), Sigg-style water bottles in rooms (available for purchase at the end of a stay) that guests can refill at stations throughout the hotel, and recycling bins discreetly placed in closets.
