Before we went, I wasn't sure what to make of the town lift shown on the trail maps. It really does come right into the center of town, providing easy access to the closer parts of downtown. (Main street is a steep hill, so the blocks add up fast.) The trail back is really a commuter trail, not something you would do laps on.
There seemed to be a lot of individual condos in residential buildings in that area on vrbo. (I realize that is not what you are looking for.) There were a few full scale hotels downtown, though I didn't pay a lot of attention. Sounds like the place wasatchskier recommended is one such place.
The other lifts that come to the base are fairly close together (and a fairly long way from the town ift). A large cluster of shops, restaurants, and (I think) hotels is located there, and there are other condos scattered nearby (some slopeside).
The cheaper condos are about 5 miles away, out near the freeway. The one we stayed at was a mix of toursit units and full-time residences. It did not have a "vacation" feel, though it was perfectly nice and pretty large.
There are a lot of very nice looking condos/hotels/whatnot over near DV, but I suspect they have DV prices.
