Opinions pls. for Canyons hotel- Grand Summit vs. Westgate

Hi,

We're planning our first trip to Park city/Canyons in February. Family of 4 (kids age 10 & 12). Looking to rent on VRBO site and choices are Westgate or Grand Summit. We plan on skiing/snowboading. Which location is ideal for getting to the slopes? My kids love swimming while on vacation... Which pool is biggest? Website photos can be deceiving! I've read some reviews that some units at Grand Summit could use some updating.

Any advice?

Grand Summit has a wonderful pool- the kids will love it. Location for both are virtually the same, easy access to the Gondola, ski school, Orange Bubble chair lift and resort plaza (restaurants, shopping, etc). From the rooms I've seen at the Grand Summit, they would be my pick over the Westgate. Nothing against the Westgate, as we have had many happy customers stay there over the years, but it can be somewhat difficult to navigate since there are multiple buildings. Happy planning!

Night and day difference. If price is comparable, for sure go with Grand Summit. While both have good location, Grand Summit is literally right at the two main base lifts. Westgate is close, but a few minutes further. Overall, I just feel that Grand Summit is a far, far better property. It's owned and operated by the resort itself. Dining at Red Tail and The Farm is outstanding. Pool is huge and well designed. I don't stay there often living in town, but was in and out of about six different rooms and suites at meetings last week and all were in great condition.

Have fun.
