Three in our party stayed at Silver King for spring break March 2114.
Condo: First the lodge is an older style condo (I would guess built in the 70's) with individually owned units so they vary in decorating. Evidently a standard room is dated and premium means remodeled. Our unit was a 1 bedroom (2 bath, kitchen) premium unit which was pretty decent, fairly recently remodeled. Granite counters, newly tiled bath, current furnishings, comfortable king bed and a pull-out. The room had a living room (couch and two chairs, TV) with a kitchen table (seats 6) and was spacious enough to accommodate 5 or 6 but not to sleep. There is an indoor pool and hot tub that we did not try. There is a ski storage area, underground parking and a bus stop across the street. Main Street dining is maybe 2 miles in the car.
Skiing: Our unit backed up to the mountain so we had a view of the resort parking lot and the First Time Lift. It was 1/2 block walk to the lift out the back doors so doable in boots. Pay Day Lift and Legacy Lodge are the base of the mountain and that is about 1 1/2 blocks uphill. It is a good meeting spot with lots of rental, ski shops and several restaurants and a lodge. Small storage is in the basement of the lodge for $6 per 24 hour period and takes credit cards. You can also check your skis at the base but I didn't check that price. We did not go to other resorts this time but Canyons and Deer Valley are easily accessible by shuttle and Alta/ Snowbird are a 45 minute drive. Considering we traveled mid-March spring break the weather was great. 45 degrees with sun (read slush) on 2 days, and white out snow, powder and 20 degrees on 2 other days.
Getting Around: This is not a hotel, there are no restaurants, common areas, etc. We walked to dinner at Legacy Lodge one night and ate at Baja Cantina which was a typical Mexican meal for $50 for 3. We drove to 501 for dinner which was high end burgers and bison, some pasta... pretty decent. We really enjoyed breakfast at the Eating Establishment on Main. Flannery's is typical bar food also on Main and Squatters on 224 about 3 miles was pretty good bar food. Dinner reservations on Main Street during high season are probably a good idea. We tried to hit early dinner and we generally got in without them.
Lift Tkts, Ski Rentals, Concierge: We had a call from Connected Concierge (an off-site concierge service) prior to departure who provided us with discount lift tickets for the trip. The are connected through All Season Resorts who is the booking service/ mgmt for Silver King. They were a decent price (about $22 per person off daily rates) and they delivered them to the condo and we returned what we didn't use and they charged us only for what we used. They also have discounted lessons and equipment. I would recommend their service. Rentals are available everywhere but be sure to get a discount (either coupon available at Info Center, front desk, brochures of about 20% off). We rented upgraded skis for about $20 per day including discount and overnight storage. And the front desk staff is hit and miss, some are terrific while some are not a fountain of info since they didn't know the area well but they all seemed really willing to help. We had some at the front desk really take a lot of time to help. It made a difference having a few minutes of advice every day.
Sadly St Patricks Day is under celebrated in Park City in my opinion. Other than that, love Park City .. just 45 minute drive from the airport, good skiing, snow during spring break, it was great.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Located just steps from the PayDay lift at the base of Park City Mountain Resort, you'll find sophisticated mountain luxury wrapped in local mining nostalgia, with hundreds of historic mining artifacts and photos thoughtfully placed throughout the hotel's halls and common areas.
Each and every studio and 1-to-4 bedroom condominium at the Silver King has a full-sized kitchen, and honest-to-goodness real wood-burning fireplaces. Guests also enjoy our indoor/outdoor pool, concierge services, complimentary ski lockers, heated underground parking, and close proximity to the restaurants, boutiques, galleries, and nightlife of Park City's Historic Main Street. Additionally, the Park City Municipal Golf Course is just steps away, and transforms into a cross country skier's dream in winter, winding through rolling low hills and snow-tipped old growth trees.
Whether you're considering a cozy weekend getaway for two, or a rejuvenating extended stay for the whole family, the Silver King Hotel is a magical and timeless place where you're sure to make memories that last a lifetime.... more less
