JACKSON HOLE, Wyo.—Four years ago the Wyoming Inn in Jackson Hole, Wyo., started a down-to-the-studs renovation of its 68 guestrooms, at a cost of approximately $70,000 per room. The renovation also planned for a remodeled restaurant, board room, and fitness center. On May 17, guests will experience the hotel’s new look.
Every guestroom has been remade with new carpet, wallpaper, drapes, and linens. The rooms feature an autumn palette of brown, green, and gold, incorporating natural elements like a saddle leather ottoman and botanical photographs and prints by artist Dennis Rhoades.
Window seats were added in 24 of the rooms; 17 rooms have fireplaces surrounded with copper tile and wood paneling and featuring natural sandstone hearths; and bathrooms received granite countertops, glass encased showers with porcelain tiles from floor to ceiling, and porcelain sinks.
The rooms are equipped with in-room coffee makers, microwaves and refrigerators—and all were designed with the “connected traveler” in mind with ample outlets throughout the room and Sunbeam Elite alarm clocks with phone chargers, iPod connectivity, white noise, and voice-guided instructions to set alarms.
The Wyoming Inn undertook the major changes in three phases to avoid disruptions to guests: during phase one, the exterior received new roofing, siding, rockwork and landscaping. In phase two, public areas including the board room and fitness center were remodeled, and the restaurant was expanded. In phase three, the bathrooms were remodeled, followed by the complete renovation of all guest rooms.
