“Good for a quick, romantic summer weekend getaway”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2012

My husband and I stayed at the Goldener Hirsch Inn this last weekend to celebrate our anniversary. It's a nice place for a couple's getaway, away from kids, etc. We live in Salt Lake, but staying here for the weekend minus the kids felt like we were on vacation much further away than the < 1 hour drive it took to get here. The concierge was very nice and helped us with our bags. The entrance to the hotel was a little odd, because it wasn't a drive up - you have to take steps to get to the front door. There was a parking garage at the back for $12 a night, but we opted to park our car ourselves for free in the shared Silver Lake parking area. The parking area was viewable from our room's balcony anyway, and it seemed secure. We stayed at room 401, one of 3 grand suites in the property, I believe. Breakfast came with our stay, although it was just a continental breakfast. On our checkout, we opted to skip breakfast there and head to Main Street's Java Cow for some wonderful crepes/coffee (only 8 minutes drive away). The decor is hunting lodge inspired, but comes across too flowery for me. They said this inn is a replica of a hotel with the same name in Austria, and all the furnishings came from there. Some niceties included: Aveda toiletries, turn down service, provided robe/slippers, starbucks coffee in the room.

Onto some oddities: The room key, as well as lock, was odd, because it had this old looking lock assembly, but it actually is not what locks the door (there's a modern deadbolt that does that). Also, we were told to leave the key at the front desk because housekeeping didn't have a key otherwise. But, while we were in our room in the middle of an afternoon nap, housekeeping came in to see if our bed needed to be turned down. They had opened the door with their own key. It was an awkward surprise for us, needless to say, as we were both in bed. There was a mirror on ceiling(?) of the poster bed in our bedroom, but it was oddly placed and on the small side, and instead of achieving the desired effect, just felt a little weird having it there. The mattress felt like it had an uneven surface, almost lumpy - my husband would sink on his side of the bed, while my side remained higher (my husband is not fat as he's an active triathlete - he has a 30" waist). The TV in the living area was also oddly placed. It was off to the side of the room, where a pillar or the console area blocked the view to it, depending on where you're sitting on the couch. The most natural spot for the TV would have been on the center where the couch and chair where, but there was a fireplace there. I guess the TV couldn't hang off that wall due to the chimney or something. We did try the indoor hot tub, and it was good, but there weren't a lot of jets-- it was really just a bigger version of our jetted garden tub at home. There's no air conditioning, and while there is a fan in the bedroom - the poster bed blocked any air from the fan anyway. When we opened the windows for some cool breeze, the birds outside were chirping their little hearts away at 3 am until sunrise! I couldn't sleep the rest of the night. For these reasons, I originally was going to rate this 4 out of 5, but docked 1 point off.

The onsite restaurant was good, as far as the entrees itself (my husband had the flank, I had the wagyu). The wait staff were very friendly. The fondue we chose for the appetizer wasn't that great. Maybe the cheese was too rich and salty, but I thought the steamed broccoli for dipping wasn't good. It was over steamed for us, and we think would have been better just fresh. In another time, we probably would pick a soup/salad instead. They had a nice in-between appetizer and entree offering (first course?) of a canape of smoked rainbow trout, which was very good, and after dessert, they provided us with a to go bag of macarons, marshmallow and candied fruit. That was a nice touch. We stayed/ate here courtesy of a travelzoo voucher. We only had to pay taxes extra for the 2 nights stay and 3 course meal. In all (including the voucher and taxes), we spent ~$400. Even though this is considered a luxury inn, my husband and I felt our stays at Trump Vegas (also in a suite) and Mark Hopkins Intercontinental in San Francisco felt more luxurious. Maybe it was more modern decor. Would we come back? I think this is one of those places where we could say, "Ok, been there, done that", but I think we would like to try out other hotels in the same area next time, for a better comparison.

Room Tip: The grand suite has a nice balcony where you can have a peaceful view while drinking your morning co...

This was my first time staying at this lovely little inn. The location couldn't be better for skiers and EVERYONE from the manager to the housekeeping staff were so wonderful and helpful. Ryan was a fountain of knowledge about the galleries in Park City and steered us to the Kimball Art Center where we saw a great exhibit called Visualizing Finance. Sharon at the reception desk was always so cheerful and had our lift passes ready so we wasted no time getting on the slopes (you can purchase lift passes at the hotel). The rooms are cozy and comfortable and ours had four closets and shelving in the bathroom so there was no lack of storage for all the bulky ski clothes and boots. Apres ski was fun and they have gluwein and fondue and raclette too. Loved the eider down beds. We will definitely return.

For at least 10 years, I stayed at this small, wonderful hotel with great access to the ski slopes. This past year, I returned and was just as pleased as when I was last there. Not only is the General Manager available to greet the guests, but he knew us by name. Every one of the staff members was not only friendly and helpful but also efficient and considerate. The hotel is in an excellent location for winter skiing -- mid-mountain at Deer Valley. You do not need to have a car. There have a service that takes you into town and back. There are so many nice perks (as much bottled water as you can drink, a wonderful full breakfast ordered from a menu every morning, afternoon snacks (cookies, fresh fruit and hot spiced cider), turn down service, ski storage. There are so many large hotels there which were built for the Olympics -- but this is a favorite and I will return year after year.

We had a great stay at this excellent small hotel. The staff is friendly and attentive without being intrusive. Our room was very cozy and you can't beat the location. It's just steps away from the Deer Valley Silver Lake Lodge. We had an excellent hot breakfast (included with the room) each morning and made first chair every day. We ate dinner in the bar several times during our stay. The service was great and the menu is the same as the highly rated restaurant. If you need to get into Park City guest services will drive you down and pick you up. I would definitely stay here again.

The Goldener is a great hotel steps from the Sterling lift at Deer Valley. The rooms are big. The people are terrific and the food is excellent. We stay there a couple times every year and are never disappointed. The hotel has free guest parking underneath the building.

Room Tip: All the rooms are great. Over the years we've tried every category.

This is only a review of the restaurant as we did not stay at the hotel. 4 of us visited the restaurant for a birthday dinner. Food was good, I tried the veal chops which was cooked fantastic and great flavors.
The service was a different story. We barely had a server. So it is hard to evaluate the service. the only rare occasion the server will surface he will be checking other tables while trying to look like he was listening to you. Very funny actually. They must have been very short staffed. Pathetic management and service at best. Thank god the kitchen was up to par and the food was great.
This is an expansive restaurant that provides worse service than a cafeteria. Sad but true. I hope it was a off night for them because the Chef puts out food that deserves better servers/management.

Love this little hotel. Great food, comfortable rooms, and very welcoming to our family always. The staff is very polite and extremely helpful. Home away from home.

Room Tip: All rooms are comfortable.
