The reviews by skiing families on a budget proved to be correct, the hotel is VERY conveniently located from all three major ski resorts, Deer Valley, Park City, and the Canyons. We actually felt bad for the people staying "on property, with a "short walk" to the lifts" struggling with their kids and all that equipment up stairs, etc. We were there Jan 19-26 w/our 6 year old, skied 5 days out of 7 and had a GREAT time. The pool & hottub at the hotel was rarely used and we had it all to ourselves most nights. Even though this is a chain, they had the fireplace on all the time and w/the pools it felt like a winter getaway for sure. The management provided us w/a humidifier which helped a lot. Add to all of this the hot breakfast every morning, the convenience cannot be beat!
