Enjoy tales of yesteryear, inspired architecture, and a good night’s sleep in five hotels in San Francisco, Portland, Seattle, Jackson, and Honolulu.
Jackson, Wyo. (1941)
Don’t be fooled by architecture reminiscent of Shakespeare’s England: This two-story, 59-room property is a true slice of the West. The red rocks of its exterior were quarried locally by the first owners—a pair of homesteader’s sons who helped introduce tourism to Jackson Hole—and its pine-paneled interior bursts with Western-themed art. Poker games with illegal gambling once convened in the Silver Dollar Bar, where you’ll find 2,032 Morgan silver dollars from the Denver mint embedded in the curvy, 46-foot-long counter. Pressure to end gambling drove the games underground to a now defunct basement room known as the Snake Pit.
