The Sunrise lodge is well situated at the Canyons resort and convenient for skiers and those who enjoy fine dining with several choices within walking distance. My husband and I went through a Hilton Vacation Club presentation. We were required to meet with a salesperson for 90 minutes and he was kind enough to not hold us captive. When we arrived at the driveway, we were immediately greeted by porters who guided us, and parked our car in valet parking. Parking was only $15 a day with in and out privileges. Apparently, there is full concierge service for those who are skiing.
At first, we were given a handicapped room since we arrived before check-in time with a balcony and partial view of the ski slopes. The room was adequate with a comfortable king size bed and a large bathroom and a small “kitchenette” area equipped with a microwave, sink, dishes, and a mini-refrigerator. The main challenge was the noise level from the adjoining room as we could easily hear conversations. The next day, we were given another room that was also on the second floor of four stories. The room was better suited for our needs although the noise level was intolerable since the room above us had hardwood floors. There was a pool area on the first floor and we were offered shuttle services into town at a bus stop since we were attending the Sundance Film Festival.
The staff were friendly and highly informative, the concierge assisted with restaurant selections and reservations. Since many of the rooms were owned as vacation time share, guests need to request higher and larger rooms when travelling in groups. We learned that some included full kitchens, living and dining rooms, and fireplaces. The location is definitely appealing for those who are skiing and want to be away from the center of town.
