This was our second stay at The Wort, our first being 10 months previous. We arrived early and as our room was not ready, we left our bags to return later.
We came back and were handed the keys to our 'Grand Room' on the second floor where our bags had already been taken for us, which was a nice thoughtful touch. The room was a nice size with a large wooden bed and several comfy armchairs to relax in. The bathroom was a good size with an over-bath shower. So, the room was indeed 'Grand' but the view out the window was far from it - looking out over a yard with construction going on opposite and a couple of containers with rubbish everywhere was hardly the view to go with the room.
We quickly unpacked to get some rest as we had travelled some distance and were trying to adjust to the 7 hours’ time difference when within minutes of putting out head on the pillow a loud rumbling / whirring noise could be heard vibrating throughout the room. It seemed centered around the bathroom area and at first, we thought it would pass but for an hour (in the late afternoon) it continued on and on.
The rest we so hoped to have didn’t happen so on our way out we made comment at the front desk about the noise and to the receptionists credit she looked at our reservation, which was for 6 nights and immediately offered to move us to another room (I kind of got the feeling that this is possibly a known issue and in fact I seem to recall the managers comment to someone on our last visit that it was something they were looking to rectify – well they haven’t!).
Our room move was done promptly and we ended on the ground floor with a room that overlooked the street and the nearby hills, which was far better than the previous room, though we felt this room was certainly not as plush as the one we had just left.
The bed was extremely comfy and a mixture of pillows certainly helped get a good nights sleep. There was a nice coffee maker, though we did ask for the decaf to be substituted with normal coffee but this never got honoured.
All in all The Wort is a lovely hotel, with some historic value. Its location is superb, making visits to the restaurants and shops easy and with The Tetons just 15 minutes down the road who can complain.
Having stayed twice now, I’m not so certain we will be going back though.

Have visited Jackson many times but this was our first chance to try the restaurant in the Wort Hotel. Walked in and were seated right away. We had a very good dinner. Excellent service and could hear the band from the bar as well. Worth the stop.
