The lobby, scented with an earthy leatherwood aroma, sets the stage for the hotel’s mountain-modern vibe, created by interior designer Stephen Brady. Crystal Baccarat chandeliers and artwork by Clay Blackmore blend with bronze stag statues, an inviting antique Italian fireplace, dark woods and re-upholstered antique furniture in leather and velvet. Outdoors, the hotel embraces an enormous pool enclave and a patio with neatly positioned firepits, ideal for making s’mores and gazing at the Wasatch Mountains.
Bed and Bath
Designed by Stephen Brady, the 175 guestrooms and residences range in size from cozy (320 square feet) rooms with gas fireplaces to slightly larger studios with kitchenettes to spacious four-bedroom hotel homes. Blending traditional decor with mountain style, rooms feature textured fabrics, a neutral palette, and furnishings from Mitchell Gold + Bob Williams, including chocolate-brown velvet sofas, leather chairs and mirrored dressers. The generous bathrooms are equipped with HDTVs and Salvatore Ferragamo amenities.
Grab a pastry and cappuccino at Crave before heading out for mountain pursuits. Sunny summer afternoons are best spent at the pool (cabanas have recently been added). Mountain Salvation, a massage using oil and a pain-relieving gel, is a must for those who overexert themselves. In the evening book a table at Slopes, a sophisticated seasonally driven eatery and lounge with Baccarat chandeliers and walls adorned with hand-carved wooden deer antlers.
In the Area
The Canyons is home to one of Utah’s best restaurants, the Farm, a comfortable spot for lunch that offers locally produced cuisine. An après-ski alternative can be found at Jupiter Bowl, a trendy bowling venue in Kimball Junction. Also nearby is the Utah Olympic Park, where you can ride a bobsled on the 2002 Olympic course. A 10-minute ride via free shuttle puts you on Park City’s historic Main Street for ice cream at Java Cow or artisanal cocktails at High West, Utah’s first distillery since the 1800s.
How to Get There
Amazing hotel in the beautiful Park City with ski lift/gondola in front of the hotel. Loved the fireplace in the room. Great bar service with unique mountain cocktails. Plenty options for hiking and just few minutes from Utah Olympic Village.
Beautiful hotel with attention to detail, very comfortable rooms, The location is great with hiking just outside the door along with skiing and golf. I would definitely stay there again. The afternoon smores were fun.
I booked here on a long road trip and was so excited to come to the property. The welcome at the front drive by the valet staff has been the ABSOLUTE BEST experience of the whole resort.
Room is very small and the furniture is all scratched and banged up as if a big fraternity had just been to stay here. Either that or it's 5 years old, which is way too old for a WA property. They need to replace more frequently! There is no where to sit if you need to do computer work. I'm sitting on an ottoman next to the nightstand as I type. There are no chairs only square ottomans. It's a hot day and the AC isn't working. My room is almost 80 degrees at 10pm. Engineering has been here for 30 minutes, and seems more confused by the thermostat than I am.
I ordered a steak and fries for dinner through room service. The gentleman who took the order and brought to my room was great. The food was terrible. The steak tasted rancid, or like it was cooked with burned herbs. I couldn't stand the smell of it.
I also went to the spa for a massage and facial. The massage was good, but now my back seized up and I can't walk. Really? The facial was done with products from Eminence which I've never heard of, and the technician put sunscreen on me at 6:30pm. Really?
And this comment is not for the hotel management, but there was a family at the pool right outside my window at 9:45pm with a screaming baby. Really?
I cannot recommend this place. The valet staff and was the highlight of the visit.
