The Goldener is truly a unique property. I could go on about the physical reasons for this which are many and positive: Ski-in/Ski-out in Silver Lake Village at Deer Valley, wonderful ambiance of an Austrian ski chalet, incredibly comfortable beds, spacious rooms, clean and well-maintained, great cozy and top-notch restaurant where my kids and I had a fantastic New Year's Eve dinner of wiener schnitzel, red cabbage and spaetzle -Yum!, and THE BEST apres-ski in Deer Valley or Park City.
The most important distinguishing element for me, however, is the level of personalized service you will receive from the General Manager, Kelley Davidson, and all of his staff, particularly Doug Whitlock. These two professionals remind me of what hostelry should be. Staying at the Goldener is like stepping back into a more refined time and place.
My family of five has been staying here regularly since 2002. We began coming in the Winter for skiing and then started coming in the summer as well. For me, all other hotels in Deer Valley and Park City cannot come close to what is achieved here!
Warning: If what you are looking for is slick, cutting-edge and pretentious, Goldener is not the right choice. If you look for those qualities that stand the test of time, and a very picky inn guest (i.e. "me"), you have found your home away from home in the mountains of Utah.
I love them all, but the consummate in privacy are the suites on the very top floor. They are right...
