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
The hotel facilities were amazing. The pool and the fire pits were great and the room was clean and large. Best of all was the staff. Everyone we met was so friendly and nice. I loved it and will definitely stay again.
I can’t remember any names unfortunately but I stayed was 6-7. The guy at the front desk was so nice and gave us everything we needed to know. The guys cleaning the pool and taking care of the hot tubs were also really nice and the girl the next morning let us have a late checkout. Everyone was fabulous and you can really tell that customer service is a priority at your hotel.
Super near to Park City Main Street

Me and my wife enjoy a good time next time we’ll brine the whole family to visit
We loved our stay at the sundial! It was a one bedroom with kitchen and living area with pull out sofa couch and balcony looking straight out to the ski lifts. Just enough room for 3 of us. We were able to make breakfast and go back to the room in between snowboarding.
The Sundial Lodge made my sad visit extremely relaxing and accommodating. Staff was excellent and right there to assist with whatever I needed, ex. wine glasses, more towels. My room was excellent, very comfortable bed, jetted tub, refrigerator and microwave so I could just relax and be by myself; My visit was April 20-24th and it was so quiet because it was past ski season. Most shops were closed, as well as several restaurants but there are plenty around town. I highly recommend the Sundial Lodge.
We stayed at the Sundial C104 March 26-30. This is a really well-equipped, thoughtfully laid out 1 bedroom condo. We were thrilled to find a bottle of wine waiting for us on arrival. We have our own vacation rental on the East Coast and know how much goes into making sure guests have a wonderful stay. We definitely did! The condo C104 had everything we needed- everything. I appreciated the clean throw blankets, brita water filter, heathed bathroom floor and lovely furnishings. The kitchen is fully stocked with a drip coffee maker and a keurig, and everything you need. The tv is loaded with movie channels and options. We loved the ski check service at the Sundial lobby. They kept our skis and boots so we didnt have to lug them to the room. Some reviews have complained that the Sundial really isnt ski in ski out. We had no problem walking the short distance from the lobby to the gondola. The last time we visited we rented a car. this time we took Uber Ski from the airport for $50. Used the free shittle into town for dinner, took Uber home for $10 and then Uber ski back to the airport for $48. $110 vs $300+ to rent a car. Very happy. Also, the Canyons villages has improved so much. We had the BEST meal at The Edge Steak House. It wa sthe best meal of our stay. We also loved the Farm in the village and hung out at the Umbrella bar. We ate on the mountain each day. Know that you wont pay less than $15 for a a sandwich on the mountain. But honestly everything we had was very good. Our favorite places to eat were Cloud Dine and the bbq place by the tombstone lift. Our favorite snow for our trip was up by Cloud dine. All in all we had a wonderful trip. We met lots of nice people on the lifts and in the hot tub. And we highly recommend Sundial C104.
