“Really Dreadful”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2013

Staff was very unfriendly and unhelpful. Took us a long time to check in because registration staff was too busy tlaking to one another to assist us.We asked how to get how to get to Olympic Park and were told that they didn't know, even though it was right across the road. No maps available. Very little to do in Park City in the summer- most of the shops and restaurants advertised as nearby were closed. Rooms laid out rather strangly- long entry hallways look like a bowling alley. Felt like staying in a dormitory. Restaurant which appears to be on site is not affiliated with the hotel- no room service or room charges available. Was there for a meeting and had to contract with an outside caterer.
Park City is a lovely area, but will certainly stay elsewhere if we go back.

Dear Suitcase11526,

I am trying to locate your reservation to send you a personal message as well, but wanted to convey my sincere apologies for your dissatisfying stay in July. Since joining the Newpark team in late July, I have made significant changes to the staff and training in an effort to drastically improve each and every guests experience. The review of the staff and service, though disappointing to me, may have been an accurate reflection of how things were; but in no way would they reflect the kind, warm and helpful service you would receive now. I hope you would consider returning to Newpark Resort to experience the positive changes that have been implemented and to give us the opportunity to revise your opinion and leave you with a fantastic experience and wonderful memories.

We stayed here for a romantic get-away weekend. Overall, it was great. We had a few issues that were really annoying though, especially what is supposedly a higher class resort.

First, in the lobby, the large doors are amazing. Very, very beautiful. But a pain in the butt to open. I know that's minor, but when you are dragging along a bunch of luggage, those beautiful doors are a pain to get though. As I struggled to open them, I caught a glimpse of the desk clerk. Pretty sure they were laughing at me. Instead of offering to help, they were chuckling. There were two of them there. One very easily could have offered to lend me a hand. Or at least, hold the door open. Nope. Luckily check in was a breeze at that point and we got into our room to relax.

The room was beautiful. Very large and very open. We loved the hot tub on the deck. I knew that there wasn't a lot of privacy on the decks between the hot tubs. I had read many reviews on several different web sites before booking this hotel. But I was really surprised at how little privacy there actually was. There were only half walls between each deck. So there was no privacy at all. Regardless, we took good advantage of the hot tub. Sitting out there with the views and the snow falling was really, really beautiful. There is one TV in the room, which was clear across from the bed. Since we were there to veg out and relax, and lounge in bed all day, the TV being that far away was a little annoying. The bed was comfortable, but the pillows were uncomfortable for sleeping. Great for lounging and relaxing, but neck breaking during the night.

We had a problem with the heat in the room. We could not get it to go lower. It was so freaking hot in there. Sleeping at night was nearly impossible. When we did get to sleep, the people who were above us must have been elephants - the way that they stomped around was ridiculous. I know when you have floors above you , (we were on the 3rd), you are going to hear movement. But at a place as nice as this, I would have thought noise wouldn't be an issue. Trust me, it was. So between the stomping from above and the intense heat in the room, we got very little sleep and the sleep we got was very poor.

The bathroom was amazing. The heated floors were so nice! Huge tub for soaking. Double sinks and a huge shower. LOVED the bathroom!

We used the resort pool, which was nice. We same under the divider to swim outside in the snow. We love the hot tub outside during the snow storm. It was a really interesting sensation feeling the cold snow fall on your face while your body was soaking in the hot water! We tried the dry sauna, which was hot and dry (haha). We tried the wet sauna, but it smelled moldy. I used the exercise facility, which was decent. There wasn't any drinking water in there, which was weird. Later while at the pool I saw the drinking fountains. But no water for exercising was not what I was expecting.

The resort/hotel is in an excellent location with many activities and restaurants close by. We didn't have any problem finding something to eat or drink at any point during our stay. Very nice to have all the options so close by.

I really want to rate this place higher, since it was so nice and we really did have a good time. But the fun we had was the get away itself and not so much the hotel. Would we stay there again, maybe. Based on location, absolutely. But the minor issues (and yes I know they were all minor issues), add up to make me consider staying else where in the future.

Room Tip: Our room was 310A. It was on the busy side of the street. We could hear noise from the stores and re...

Dear Dassus,

I would first like to extend my deepest apologies for these minor issues that changed your opinion and overall experience that you had at Newpark Resort. I do thank you for your constructive criticism as we treat guest service as our highest priority and can only learn and grow from our guest’s feedback. At Newpark we take pride in having 24 hour assistance in both maintenance and at the front desk, and were not aware of the issue with the heat within your condo. Since seeing your review maintenance has done a check of the condo specified to fix any issues you may have experienced. I have also spoken with my staff in regards to your first experience at the door. This is unacceptable and I apologize, as we should have made a point to assist you if available to do so at the least by directing you to our automatic doors at the side of the main entrance.

With this stated, it sounds as though you loved the area and particular aspects of your stay. I do feel if given the chance your opinion can be swayed for the better by coming back to experience Newpark again, free of the minor negatives. I have provided my email information below and will also be reaching out to you directly. I hope to speak with you soon.


Kind Regards,
Caroline Cahall

This hotel is very nice and located by everything. There is a Smiths and Whole Foods grocery store within walking distance. Also plenty of restaurants and shopping. It is very close to the Olympic Park. It fit our family of 6 very nicely. It came with a hot tub, which my teenagers loved. They do have DVD players at the front desk that you have to ask for. They have a swimming pool, fitness room, sauna and steam room, which we took advantage of. I wish they served a continental breakfast there. I would have given it 5 stars if they had the breakfast. Otherwise, the hotel staff was friendly and the hotel was very clean. Would recommend this hotel to anyone.

We stayed in the town houses this last weekend. We checked in on Friday and unloaded our car, including our bikes. We put them in the garage, closed the garage door, and left to do some shopping. When we returned, our garage door was wide open. We thought we must not have closed the door. But, then, the same thing happened Saturday when we left. We returned, and the garage door was open. Finally, on Sunday morning my wife and daughter awoke to our garage door opening and someone coming into our townhouse. When we reported this to the front desk, the response was, "Oh, we'll have someone check that out." Nothing more.

We apologize for your experience and feeling of concern for your safety. Although the mechanical issue with the garage door was resolved within an hour after reported to us by the traveler, we empathize with their concerns. Rest assured, our staff holds the security of our guests and staff in the highest regard.

I live locally in Salt Lake and have stayed at Newpark twice. Just brought my sister from out of state up to Park City overnight and specifically chose Newpark as our hotel for it's convenience to entertainment, restaurants, shopping and outdoors all in walking distance. Beautiful hotel and rooms (stayed both times in a suite). Full kitchen, gas fireplace, hot tub - all very nice! Great service. Gorgeous views. What's even better is that for all it's convenience to food, shopping, freeway etc is that it is right next door to Swaner Nature Preserve - literally walked out the front door and went for the most beautiful, serene mountain run along the trails right there. Best of both worlds. Such a nice get away - will for sure keep coming back.

Stayed here for a business trip and the room was nice. It had a large bathroom with heated floors and two sinks, and a seperate shower and tub. The room was nice with a comfortable king size bed, gas fireplace and full kitchen. the deck off the room had a great view of the mountains and a small, two-person hot tub. The room also had a TV of which I didn't use, but noticed it had hook ups in an adjoining cabinet if I had wanted to hook it up to my laptop or dvd player, etc. The location was convenient - far enough off the freeway that you woulldn't get road noise, but close enough (two traffic lights) for easy freeway access. About the only downside to this room/hotel is that it is located in a shopping area so it doesn't have a very secluded feel to it. In the morning, when I went out on the deck, it was easy to hear people talking on the street and in back of their places of business. This wasn't too bad, though, given that I only heard it in the morning when I walked out onto the deck for the view. When I went back in the room, it was quiet. Altogether, a nice place.

This hotel is boutique-like with its good and bad. The hallways have a lot of glass for good views. The front desk was not all that welcoming, just lukewarm reception. It's bathroom was one of the best I have seen but some of the room furniture is just nude furniture and a bit archaic. Of course, we were facing a wall in terms of view in our room. There are lots of little lounges for relaxing and it is in a shopping center, which I did not understand. Do not expect anything great!

Room Tip: Try to stay away from the most basic room unless you are in a budget.
