This was my first stay at this particular St. Regis, and I couldn't have been more impressed. Of course, being a St. Regis, the hotel was beautiful and luxurious. But the St. Regis Deer Valley also felt homey and "lodgey," fitting in perfectly in this mountain town. My friend had to cancel at the last minute, but I decided to splurge (with Starwood Points) anyways and treat myself. I'm sooo glad I did. I don't recall seeing anyone else alone as most were there with families, friends, spouses, or significant others. I didn't feel uncomfortable as I often travel on business alone, so I'm used to it, but it sure would have been nice to share all the St. Regis Deer Vally and surrounding area has to offer with someone!
Each time I sat down to dine at the J&G Restaurant, I was warmly welcomed by Patrick Schanze the restaurant manager, who always greeted me by name. The food was delicious and nutritious, and they were very accommodating of my food allergies each time without hesitation or mistakes.
I can't comment on the downhill skiing situation as I no longer downhill ski, but I can provide feedback on the exceptional service provided by Concierge Jeannine Heil, who was extremely helpful in informing me where I might still find x-country skiing centers that were still open (thanks to the 80 plus degree weather we were experiencing, not much snow was left!), as well as hiking & spa recommendations. As I was already going to be over at the Solitude Nordic Center in Little Cottonwood Canyon 1 hr away, Jeannine recommended the Cliff Spa at Snowbird in Big Cottonwood Canyon nearby. I had THE BEST MASSAGE of my life there from Andrey Razuvayev. All of Jeannine's recommendations for dinner in Park City and other activities were spot-on! She went above and beyond to help me enjoy my vacation thoroughly! She truly is a gem!
I stayed in a huge suite complete with two fireplaces and a fully-loaded kitchen. It even came with "butler service." However, with the exception of having tea brought up to my suite that first evening, I never bothered the butler.
Every evening around 4 p.m. they had the most decadent complimentary hot cocoa and hot apple cider in the St. Regis lobby. Every a.m. in the library was a wonderful complimentary assortment of teas and hot coffee. There also was a delicious oatmeal bar ($) where families could get a quick and less expensive breakfast to eat in the library instead of going to J&G Restaurant. Around 7 p.m. or so you could go out by the firepit to roast marshmellows and make smores! Fun fun fun! Little kids and big kids (like me) had a great time with this!
I contemplated moving in permanently into my St. Regis suite, but, alas, my Starwood points ran out and I couldn't stay longer! Actually, I went to the Waldorf Astoria Park City for a few nights (thanks to my Hilton Points), and the Waldorf PALED in comparison to the St. Regis in every aspect - a few examples: the room (the Waldorf's coffee in the room was PAST THE EXPIRATION DATE!); the Waldorf's hot cocoa was horribly watery (like instant you can get at the grocery store); their staff (with the exception of the Concierge and the spa staff) was not hospitable; the St. Regis is closer to Park City than the Waldorf...I could go on and on.
In summary, the St. Regis Deer Valley is a 5-star property w/5-star accommodation, dining, service, and staff! Can't wait to return!
