Vibe: Guest are global-nomad type crowd: young, hip, and in no rush to be anywhere.
Area: Located in the quintessential mountain town of Jackson, Wyoming, which has the best of both worlds: access to some of the country’s best skiing at Jackson Hole Mountain Resort, and a downtown filled with a diverse mix of galleries, music venues, shopping boutiques and restaurants.
The DNA: A modern interpretation of the classic western lodge, The Anvil embodies the robust outdoors Americana that has found such resonance with the world’s hip young things in recent years, and stamps authenticity all over it; a hotel to snuggle up to, dripping with modish interiors and custom-made design pieces. The exterior is a rich dark mountain green — whilst inside, warm wood tones, detailed panelling and brass fixtures take centre stage. The lobby is an inspired setting, recalling the general stores of bygone times with a wood-burning stove, the waft of freshly-baked treats from local bakery Persephone and coffee from Snake River Roasters; whilst the hotel’s restaurant, Glorietta Trattoria focusses on modern rustic wood-fired Italian cuisine.
Suite-Me-Up: The Glenwood Two Queen are the largest rooms but do not offer air conditioning (smaller rooms do). They are tastefully designed with two queen-size beds, custom fixtures and furnishings, a 43-inch flat-screen television, and a retro ceiling fan.
