My wife and I visited the Dakota Mountain Lodge just prior to its grand opening on 29 July 2009. The restaurant and spa were just about to be opened. The young and enthusiastic staff were working very effectively as a team to prepare the hotel for the first main arrival of guests. These preparations were being overseen by a high-profile management team who welcomed our own suggestions for a few minor improvements. Staff were clearly keen to ensure that everything was absolutely perfect. Despite the busy atmosphere, we found all staff to be exceptionally welcoming, caring and helpful.
The hotel's interior is very tastefully decorated throughout and aesthetically pleasing. The lobby is immediately impressive. Our bedroom was particularly comfortable, with high-quality furnishings and bedding and careful attention to detail. The room was very well lit and the switch-controlled gas flame fire added a final touch of luxury. Having the morning sun on our balcony was particularly pleasant. Outside, the well-planted garden area was just being finalised. The pool and hot tub were excellent and surrounded by a spacious area containing luxurious couches, sunbeds and shaded tables. Everything was beautifully designed and well maintained.
The hotel is situated away from the noise and bustle of central Park City but is within easy travelling distance. There are many excellent hiking and biking trails close by, with ready access to chairlifts and gondolas. The hotel must be amazing in winter !
We have stayed in many hotels throughout Europe and the US. We would say that we found the quality of accommodation and service provided by the Dakota Mountain Lodge to be truly outstanding. We look forward to paying a return visit as soon as possible.
