The St. Regis Deer Valley
What We Love
- Chaise-lined ski beach and heated terrace with a 40-foot fire garden, ideal for viewing people and mountains
- The private midmountain location, which puts you steps from the trails yet still close to Park City's nightlife
- Unflappable St. Regis service, which includes on-call butlers and eager ski valets
- READ MORE: 72 Hours in Park City

- Free WiFi
- Parking On Site

With a mountain-modern design by Linda Snyder, the hotel is refreshingly free of antlers and saturated ski lodge colors. Thick stone pillars and dark woods meld with neutral colors, subtle textures and snug seating in muted umbers and browns to create a contemporary look that’s polished but not stuffy. In the lobby a two-sided fireplace anchors the vast room, while the cozy adjacent library offers a more intimate setting. More than 200 pieces of original art grace the public spaces — the most notable being the bar’s commissioned mural by Phillip Buller, which depicts Park City’s mining history.
Bed and Bath
The cool, mountain-modern vibe continues in the 177 guestrooms and suites, showcasing a palette of subtle charcoal, taupe and rust. Rooms with views of the slopes boast fireplaces and Juliet balconies. Bathrooms include glass-enclosed showers with rainfall showerheads, soaking tubs and plush towels and robes.
Jean-Georges Vongerichten, who happens to be a skier, created the J&G Grill, a sophisticated stop that offers elevated farm-to-table cuisine, including black truffle pizzas and thick cheeseburgers with Beehive cheddar. Après ski and hike, the stylish St. Regis Bar becomes a vibrant scene for guests to mingle over signature cocktails, some made with spirits produced by the local High West distillery. The wine vault, with its lavish red leather banquettes, entices diners pre- and post-dinner. The hotel’s greatest luxury is the Remede Spa, a soothing escape awash in earthy winter white.
In the Area
Just 35 miles from the Salt Lake City airport, the historic former mining town of Park City harbors three distinct resorts, Deer Valley, Park City Mountain Resort and Canyons. Shopping and dining are concentrated along a sloping one-mile stretch of Main Street. Pop into the Wasatch Brewery for a Polygamy Porter or reserve a table at Silver, a swank restaurant and lounge in a renovated 1926 brick building. At the Utah Olympic Park, you can ride a bobsled, take a freestyle skiing lesson, or peruse the Alf Engen Museum, an homage to skiing history and the 2002 Salt Lake City Olympics.
How to Get There
This was our first stay with a St. Regis and we were in awe from the moment we arrived. When you pull in, you hand your keys to a valet and are directed through a maze of luxury to the funicular. You then ride to the top of the mountain to the main hotel where you will walk through another luxurious maze passing ballrooms doors and restaurants with gorgeous views. The main lobby is large and airy with dark wood accents and a giant fireplace. From the moment we checked in, we were treated like royalty. We received a room upgrade at no cost and walked into a BEAUTIFUL 1 bedroom suite that is larger than our 2 bedroom condo at home. The room includes a full kitchen with kitchen tools and a Nespresso machine, a large dining table, living area with small tv, dvd player, small sofa, gas fireplace and a small balcony with chairs and table. There is a half bath off of the main foyer but then you walk into the bedroom door and find a large bathroom with a large shower and separate tub. Just beyond this bathroom is the bedroom which includes a king size bed, small loveseat with a footrest and comfy throw and yet another gas fireplace. I have multiple spinal and joint issues but I slept comfortably and through the night and we did not feel when the other climbed in and out of bed. The view from our room was phenomenal and all of the windows opened to let in the cool mountain air.The room upgrade also included butler service and we took advantage of their morning coffee delivery. No matter who the butler on duty was, they were always amazing. One woman told us that if we experienced any discomfort due to the altitude, they would bring us coconut water and headache medicine to help. The resort has nightly 'smores and drinks on the outside deck and I wish we had taken advantage of this at least once. I noticed that the hotel had bikes on the property so it wouldn't surprise me if they offered them to guests who wanted to explore the area. We didn't eat in the restaurant but we did take advantage of room service multiple times and we enjoyed each meal. There are multiple restaurant options within Deer Valley and into the heart of Park City so I encourage anyone who goes to explore. I would love to see the area in wintertime but we were there in the off season in order to attend a family member's graduation. I would definitely recommend the St. Regis for a romantic getaway where you will be thoroughly pampered.
We only had one con to the hotel stay itself. Because it was the off season, workers were on site. Our room was a corner studio and we slept with the windows open but the arrival of workers/work trucks woke us abruptly. We just closed the windows the next night. We understood completely and find no fault with the hotel for getting work done during the slow season.
We planned to stay one night at The St. Regis before heading to Salt Lake City for the Young Living convention. We arrived on Sunday and were able to upgrade our room for a reasonable fee to a suite. It was spectacular. The room was more than comfortable, the views were amazing, and since we were here in the early summer, the hiking trails were great without being too hot.
We enjoyed our first night so much that we booked another night the next morning. Unfortunately, the suites were already booked so we got a king room which was still very nice.
The food is a little overpriced, but that's what you expect at a hotel like this. I think the only thing that caught us off guard was when we ordered salads for lunch at the pool, and each got a club soda. The club soda came in a very small plastic cup, we didn't get refills, and they were $6 each. Not trying to sound stingy, just a lesson we learned.
The fitness center is great for a hotel, and the property is VERY peaceful. My wife relaxed quickly. We'd definitely recommend it and would love to come back in the winter for some skiing.
It was relaxing, peaceful, with just enough service to meet our needs while leaving us alone to enjoy our time together.
My son - always creative - called three months ago to say he wanted to ask his girlfriend for her hand in marriage - AND have the wedding the next day - in Park City (we are from St. Louis)! I called the St. Regis - his dream wedding location - and thankfully connected with Christina Mytinger. Christina LOVED the idea and immediately went to work to make it all happen. She immediately connected me with best St. Regis-preferred vendors to help. Christina mapped out a plan, beginning with the surprise engagement on Friday, June 1st (photo on the St. Regis Instagram). She hid our group of 70+ in the St. Regis wine vault (a GREAT place to hang out!) then we all emerged to surprise the newly engaged couple just moments after my son dropped to one knee and proposed! A few moments later, he let his fiancé know the wedding was to be the next day. After the initial shock followed by assurances of a plan that covered all the bases (dress, hair, make up, St. Regis outdoor wedding and ballroom reception), she was all-in! The wedding on the Grand Lawn was simply gorgeous, and the view magnificent! After a very emotional exchange of vows, with the bride's father as officiant, we enjoyed celebratory cocktails and appetizers on the beautiful outdoor Mountain Terrace. The bacon-wrapped shrimp, mini-grilled cheese sandwiches with tomato soup and pork belly confit recommended by Christina were outstanding appetizers! We moved to the Astor Ballroom for the reception; it had been magically transformed! The Angus beef tenderloin was incredible - huge servings and perfectly prepared. Because the bride loves potatoes, Christina had cones of French fries served later in the evening on the dance floor! Every aspect of the evening was perfect; extraordinary service, numerous special touches, Christina thought of EVERYTHING, including a romantic suite for the newly-married couple complete with rose petals and champagne! So many absolutely perfect touches to this event. I am so grateful to the St. Regis and to Christina for her creativity, organization and hard work to make this event so incredible! And kudos to the fabulous vendors: Artisan Blooms, PepperNix photography, Natalie Cope at Cope & Co., Carrie's Cakes, Matt at Greenlight Booking for the band Club Rock, Diamond Rental!
Thank you Christina and the St. Regis for pulling off the perfect engagement and wedding on such short notice!!!

We just can't say enough about this hotel. We were finishing up a two week road trip and arrived frazzled and tired. Checkin with Taylor was awesome and then Ms. Yoder helped make our daughter's 10th birthday really special. We returned to our room after a fun but hot day at Olympic park to a beautiful tray of cookies. The kids were really excited to watch Shrek in the pool that evening and Devin helped me get a piece of cake for her from the restaurant. There isn't ANYTHING else we could have asked for. Awesome hotel and staff!
We were just sight-seeing with some locals who wanted us to see the St Regis. From the valet parking to the funicular to the dining area, it was quite a trip. You get the feeling of how the 1% live. While very elegant, I found the public areas sparse in terms of furniture and decor - certainly not as warm and inviting as other lodges I've been in. Too chilly for lunch on the terrace for us.
