Some Park City lodging options

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
I put together this info for Spindrift and in the interest of sharing the burden am posting it here;

Lodging investigation so far

Moderate price range;
Treasure mountain Inn; http:// www.treasuremountaininn.com, http://oldtowncondos.com
Rates in early Feb.;
Studio- $195 per night- King or queen bed, nice full kitchen&bath, pool view(not much, depending on who's in the pool)
1 bedroom- $265 per night- two queens in bedroom, sofabed in livingroom, full, nice kitchen, full bath
2 beds-$415 per night, 2 baths- didn't see these- ask about fireplaces, kitchen, etc. if you're interested.
Condos on Park Ave, nearby also under management, some with fireplaces- see oldtowncondos.com

Location; Upper main street, Park City close to everything apris- ski, restaurants, gallerys, bars, shopping, steps away. Short Trolly ride to town lift (PCMR) , short bus ride to DV or Canyons. Bus stops at door.
Description; Built in late 60's, spacious by todays standards. Large three story building on Main, two smaller buildings upslope behind with all year pool and hot tub in between. Odd numbered one bedrooms have large balconies above Main street. All have great kitchens. One of the rooms I visited had "old hotel smell" but bring a scented candle and enjoy the savings. Morning Ray Cafe in building, best breakfast in PC. Parking garage in basement.
Reserve soon for this time.Discounts don't start until 10 rooms= 10%, 15=15%, and so on. I liked this place. Wife too.

Less moderate price range:
Snowflower Condos. http://snowflowerparkcity.com
Rates early feb 5 night minimum
Two bedroom standard; $485-$525 depending on luxe. Sleeps up to six, Two bedroom+loft sleeps more.
Two bedroom deluxe- $525-560 mountain view, balcony overlooking Eagle Chair and racecourse finish
I bedroom, $415- sleeps up to four

Location; Right smack on the World cup racecourse and Superpipe, next to the Eagle chair.
Bus to Oldtown.

One of the nicer Condos in PC. Fireplaces, parking in basement, close to everything, lots of big trees and next to three lifts, two beginner and the racer lift, which goes to the top and connects with the whole mountain. All condos privaetly owned some extremely nice.

Marriot Summitwatch;
This is new on lower Main street directly opposite the town lift. The rooms are real nice with big Jaccuzzi tubs, and fireplaces in the one bedrooms and larger. Many have nice views of the Mountain or downvalley. It's one of the few with direct access both to Main Street and the Town Lift.
Rates in Feb:
2 Bedroom (can sleep up to 6, if you figure two on the sofabed) $600.night
I bedroom: (Queen or king & sofabed) $419
Studio: 1 King bed, $309
All units have a new full kitchen. The two bedrooms are a one bedroom unit and a studio unit attached via interior doors so you'd have two kitchens and two entries. It would work well for two couples to share because you'd have nearly the privacy of a studio unit but also share a large living room with a nice fireplace and big picture window.

This is what I've found out so far.I'd like to see more recent info in the budget dept. if anyone's recently stayed at;

Apris Ski Lodge http://www.chateauapres.com/ (my old favorite)
The Gables
(both resort center)
Kimbel Junction Best Western
(just down the road)

My impression is that the best deals may be had through packages at some of the condos that may also include lift tickets and even Airfare. I haven't been inside these places but they look well maintained from the street. Some of the better located condos are:
Near town lift;
Town Lift Condominiums
Lift House Condominiums
Park Station

At Resort Center;
Silver King
Powder Point

I dug some more into 1 bedrooms for $250 a night assuming 2 people to share and came up with a lot here; http://www.skiparkcityutah.net. You can put any criteria into the search engine. Bear in mind anything on Sidewinder or in Prospector is a bus ride away from Main street and the resort. Still nice though.Most of the Condos adjacent to the resort will be nice and many have wood burning fireplaces with balconies, and kitchens.

By the way, it's a pretty 45 minute drive to the Cottonwood Canyons,I used to like to stay in P.C. for the mountaintown atmosphere and Apris ski even when I was skiing Alta as a visitor. I'll gather a little info on restaurants. Most are good. El Chebasco and Taste of Saigon are best budget, Grappa and Riverhorse are best high end, and avoid Claim Jumper and Cisero's like botulism. More later

we usually stay in the prospector square area.

quick and easy access to shuttles.

couple good places to eat nearby.


oh yeah, stayed here one time when i went solo. pretty much a short schlep across a parking lot to PCMR lifts. no frills but it works.

Here's some more info that came my way on lodging options...

...the cheapest accommodation in PCMR is: chateau apres. http://www.chateauapres.com/index.html It's right under PCMR, it's old-style euro lodge, and seriously cheap and well located and it's downright funky-nice!!!

the next cheapest is the 3 chain Motels/motor inns at Kimball Junction. They are your average best western type chain motor inns, very white bread. a bit pricier than Apres but in the $100/night ballpark. drawback is they are a drive from PC-proper, although there is also the free bus. 2 routes go out to Kimball. that's where the factory outlets adn walmart are.

...Apres even has dorms!!!! actually for dorm people, there's also a hostel in Main St, called park city hostel or somesuch.

Chateau Apris also has an old, huge Swiss fireplace in the lobby that has to be seen to be believed- the photos on their website don't do it justice.

The only photo on their website I found, gave me the shivers::

Is it possible we have enough people here that we could get a group rate at a nice place? Kind of like what is being done for the Academy? I'd love to go, but $200/night is pretty steep, and I don't have anyone lined up to share a room since Mrs Cirquerider does not ski.

I'm going to ESA and the gathering and if you can handle a smoker I'll gladly share. I've already got a room at the Cliff for ESA and will share that at no cost keeping in mind what I said above.
post #8 of 12
Hmmm, Alta/Bird....ESA Interrresting! So um, like you smoke IN the room? Tobacco? I think they jail people here in California for this crime
post #9 of 12
Yeah Cirque it's the tobacco thing.

Yikes I am glad I managed to get a timeshare exchange in Park City now that I see those prices. My 7 nights in Park City will owe me about $450 USD (excluding my captial investment which was minimal cause I got a resale). Apparently it is not the flashest resort and we may have to walk up stairs carrying our gear to our room, but I think we can cope for that price.

If you stay at the Chateau Apres you won't be far from where we are. It all helps with the socialising if we are in the same vicinity.

How about a roll call of who is staying where??

Hi Guys,


Sorry to bring up an old thread, but I just spotted that you're heading to Park City at the same time as me! I have my accom sorted, but I am looking for some people to ski with/ model some Ski Goggles for some photography I am producing for a company.


Let me know if any of you guys are up for that, more details in another post i made here: http://www.epicski.com/t/144322/ski-snowboard-buddies-for-park-city-in-february



Edit: Just realised that this post was 10 years old, and now pretty irrelevant! Sorry about that..
