We stayed with friends at the Hyatt Escala Lodge at the Canyons in early April and all I can say is STAY HERE! This was actually my second visit to the Escala since Hyatt took over and each stay is better than the last! The suites are amazing, the location and views can't be beat, and the hospitality of the staff is everything you would expect at a property of this caliber.
The suites are large, comfortable, and well appointed. The beds are very comfortable and the kitchen has everything one needs to cook for a crowd (we even had a holiday dinner in our suite when we stayed in November!). This is not your typical hotel experience, the Hyatt Escala is a destination unto itself. We found that we enjoyed our suite so much we didn't even care to spend too much time in town and when we left, everyone was already plotting our return trip!
The Hyatt Escala hot tub is one of our favorite amenities and we took full advantage each day we were there. We also took the free shuttle in to Park City a few times. The shuttle was fast and reliable and the driver was very courteous and helpful.
On a previous trip to Park City we stayed right in the heart of downtown. The accommodations were okay but it was noisy and the parking was a nightmare (several miles away, having to take public transportation back). Not so at the Hyatt! The parking is very easy and secure and it was such a relief to arrive back at our very private, and quiet!, suite at the end of the night.
We can't wait to see the evolution of the Hyatt once the restaurant and spa open! It's only been a few weeks and we're already looking forward to our return trip!
