Chicago-based Waterton acquired the iconic Virginian Lodge and adjacent RV Park in Jackson, WY in a JV with Jackson-based Orion Companies. Built in the 1960s and located at 750 W. Broadway in downtown Jackson, the 170-key lodge will undergo a repositioning that will fill a need for a unique lifestyle experience near Yellowstone National Park and Grand Teton National Park.
The 13-acre site includes a main hotel, a 4,900-square-foot conference and event center, and 2,600 square feet of retail space. There’s also an adjacent 3,400-square-foot restaurant, 2,700 square feet of retail space, as well as a 103-stall RV park.
Waterton’s David Schwartz says, “The Virginian Hotel is well-aligned with Waterton’s expertise in transforming iconic properties and we’re excited to partner with a respected Jackson-based firm to reposition the property into one with wide appeal for Jackson Hole visitors.”
Renovations to rooms, amenities, common areas, retail spaces and food and beverage operations are slated to begin late 2020.
