Positioned at the mountain base in the Canyons, one of Park City’s most established ski villages, this ski-in/ski-out hotel is a fusion of rustic lodge architecture and metropolitan design. The façade combines stone, wood and earth shades that disappear against the mountain during the warmer months but pop against the winter snow. The Sundial Lodge overlooks the central forum, where musical acts perform and other entertainments take place, and is adjacent to the Red Pine Gondola — less than a two-minute walk from the hotel entrance. The cozy yet airy lobby features natural stone floors, oversize windows, comfortable furniture in soft hues of red and brown, a log cabin–style structure and an inviting stone fireplace. Two distinct towers have a total of 115 hotel units and are connected by a sprawling archway bridge.
Bed and Bath
Standard rooms start at 350 square feet and are fitted with plush bed linens and kitchenettes, while studios and suites sport balconies and full kitchens. In 2012 all units were updated to include granite countertops and cosmetic enhancements. Many units added perks like jetted tubs, iPhone docking stations, separate living areas, fireplaces and hide-away flat-screen TVs. The Southwestern decor includes fall and forest-themed paintings, Native American blankets, snowshoes mounted on walls, and artsy hand-crafted pottery.
An open-air atrium on the bridge connecting the two buildings is home to a firepit, a heated plunge pool, a Jacuzzi and commanding views of the resort. A ski valet service includes free heated boot and ski storage. There’s also a fitness room, an outdoor pool and Murdock’s restaurant, a casual, family-friendly venue that serves breakfast and favorites such as burgers, sandwiches and salads. The Canyons also operates several additional restaurants such as the Farm, an award-winning venue that focuses on sustainability and fresh local ingredients.
In the Area
In the Canyons there’s a ski and snowboard school, a state-of-the-art spa, horse-drawn sleigh rides, guided snowshoe tours and a zipline adventure that stretches 2,000 feet over the resort area. The mountain itself boasts 4,000 acres, 185 trails, 19 lifts, three terrain parks and six natural half-pipes. For a break from the slopes, there are numerous art galleries, salons and shopping opportunities accessible via shuttles. Each January, Park City hosts the Sundance Film Festival, but visitors can also take in a film or show anytime at the Egyptian Theater or through the Park City Film Series. For a unique year-round activity, hot air balloon flights offer a memorable experience complete with a traditional champagne toast upon landing.
How to Get There
Super convenient and family friendly, we had a great trip. The mountain offered all ski levels plenty of options and endless runs. Really appreciated the close proximity to SLC and the airport in regards to the easy and short commute transit which gave us much more fun time versus travel time
The hotel is in a fabulous location close to beautiful restaurants. The room was very clean and had a beautiful view from the balcony. The staff was accommodating. I would love to come back and recommend it to anyone!
Good location-near 711a
-near night market-good massages nearby. Room clean and tidying. Fun with friends and family. Nice people at front desk and are very helpful. Fun place to visit. Good town. Loved the area. Near 711 and nice beds to sleep in
Stayed here for a girl's weekend with mom's and daughters. We had a 2 bedroom suite (king bed in each room and 2 sofa beds, 2 bathrooms). Plenty of room, full kitchen, DVD players, fireplace, nice deck. The hotel seems a little older but it's nice and cozy up by the mountains and the rooms we're clean. Our stay was in the fall but would also be a perfect place for a ski trip as you're right at the ski resort. And in the summer, they have concerts right outside. Great location. We didn't get to use the pool this time but we stayed here before and used it. It was just fine for a family stay. They even have BBQ grills available by the pool. We would stay here again.
We really love the canyons area, in this hotel has a great location. We walk to the restaurants at the nearby rock resort which was about 200 yards away, and have a great sports bar available for football games.
However when we arrived we were booked in a room that is scheduled for the carpet to be replaced and we were not happy. We spoke with Manager Nathalie & front desk agent Precious, And they couldn’t have been more responsive. They moved us to a new room that was really delightful. We will stay here again in the future.
