The first thing ski resort habitués will probably notice about this newest Teton Village hotel is what it doesn't have: There's no cathedral ceiling in the lobby, no lounge or sappy guitarist singing Billy Joel to the après-ski crowd, no gym (although you can use the very nice one at the sister property next door), and limited room service. What it does have is a clean, contemporary design, light-filled rooms with comfort to spare, a competent and welcoming staff, and a commitment to the environment that doesn't compromise luxury. The intimate lobby, with its gray fieldstone fireplace, cushy furniture, and walls covered in panels of warm red leather, feels more like a modern mountain-retreat living room than a resort public area. The 72 guest rooms spoil with heated slate bathroom floors, rain showers, supersized tubs, iPod docks, and obscenely comfortable mattresses made of natural materials. The spa and rooftop hot tub make the most of the mountain views, and the restaurant, Osteria, is a lively new local favorite. The hotel is in the process of obtaining LEED silver certification, but its energy-saving efforts are so integrated into the bones of the building that most guests won't know the difference (those little cards asking guests to reuse the towels are conspicuously absent). If you believe that less is more, this is definitely the place. If you do not, Terra could very well change your mind.

When to go: Ski season runs from mid-November to mid-April, and Yellowstone and Grand Teton national parks are at their best the rest of the year.
Which room to book: The Urban Studio, which has a full kitchen, a balcony, and a fold-down bed, is the best value.
