As their website states, “Hotel Terra Jackson Hole offers the exceptional amenities and services expected from boutique hotels, combined with environmentally sustainable building and operating practices to provide guests with a relaxing yet eco-friendly vacation experience.”  We totally agree!

 

Hotel TerraIn addition to the natural landscaping, the hotel boasts many wonderful sustainable features such as a living green moss wall in the lobby and cruiser bikes available for hotel guests’ use.

Some of their other eco-features include:

  • 100% electric power and natural gas is offset with purchases of clean energy sources via BEF.
  • Heating/cooling systems are computer controlled and hotel rooms are powered down when not in use or calibrated for specific occupancy expectations.
  • Large amounts of outside air are circulated into the guestrooms and energy recovery technology recoups 81% of the heat from the exiting stale air. Hotel-Terra-Guest-Room-10
  • Hotel soap dishes and bathroom counter tops are made from recycled glass, including glass reclaimed from skyscrapers.
  • Mattresses are organic, including a salt-water based flame retardant.
  • Pillows in guest rooms are composed of recycled plastic bottles.
  • Sheets, towels, bath mats, and bathrobes are all made from 100% organic cotton.
