“Don't know why others rate this so high”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 10, 2009

The location is OK. It is in a shopping center about 15 minutes drive from Park City/Deer Valley and maybe 5 minutes from Canyons.

We stayed in a large suite with great room and separate additional bedroom. The additional bedroom had no window. The lighting is really bad. There was no humidifier, so we had to go to Rite Aid and buy one. There were a lot of other quirks about the rooms. But it was spacious and the finishes were reasonably attractive, and the bathroom was quite nice with a big shower and soaking tub.

The hotel touts its hot tubs in every room. Well, we had one on our second floor balcony overlooking the scenic parking lot of Bed, Bath & Beyond and into the windows of a bank. We were unable to access the balcony for a couple of days when the door handle/lock broke and had to ask twice for it to be fixed.

There is no restaurant in the hotel, contrary to what one poster asserted.

The pool area was OK, like a Holiday Inn.

The desk staff is generally clueless. Room staff OK, but common areas not cleaned up after a meeting for 1-2 days was kind of gross.

This is an adequate hotel. I'm not outraged but would not go back.

Our hotel room was amazing! It is by far in the top 3 nicest hotels that we have ever stayed in. The other 2 for comparison standards are the Le Meridian in Bora Bora & the Beverly Hills Hilton Hotel in CA (one of the remodeled rooms). It has a W/D. The bathroom is all beautifully tiled with a zero entry shower, huge tub, 2 sinks, & heated floors. The bathroom had very soft robes & towels. The bedroom has a huge comfy king bed (better than ours at our own home) with tons of pillows & a great little closet with a safe in it. The living room has a leather sofa that pulls out into a bed, lots of chairs, a little table, a coffee table full of games, a fire place, & a flat screen TV. The kitchen is also a very nice asset. It has stainless steel appliances (full size fridge/freezer, dishwasher, & microwave). It also has a bunch of extras like a toaster, Keirug coffe pot, dishes, & cooking essentials. Our patio is semi-private with a hot tub on it. The hot tub fits 2 people comfortably. The patio overlooks a little shopping area with a distant view of the surrounding mountains. The room was great for cooking breakfast in to save money. The maid actually does the dishes for you. That is service! The hotel room is so incredibly affordable for the quality. It is by far a 5 star resort & it is only $169 a night. Just for comparison basis, the Hampton Inn down the road was like $230 a night. The hotel is not slope slide, but it is only a 10-15 minute drive to Deer Valley, Park City, Olympic Park, & The Canyons. It is about an hour drive to Powder Mtn...etc. The hotel has a great restaurant in it called Maxwells. I recommend their Brown Butter Sage Pine Nut pasta sauce & their Italian grilled cheese sandwich. The hotel also has a great ski rental shop inside of it. If you book your boots & skis ahead of time online, you can save 30% off of the rental price. The guys that work in the shop are so nice. It was my first time skiing & they gave me a whole tutorial on putting on my boots, skis, & getting out of it all. The hotel is really close to banks, grocery stores, Walmart, restaurants, an outlet mall, & Main St. The lobby staff can seem standoffish, but if you start to ask them questions about places they recommend...they really warm up and are super friendly. The only downsides to the hotel were that the bed was a little too high off of the ground, but we got adjusted to that. The thermostat on the A/C system seemed to have a mind of its own, but we just figured out that if we wanted to warm up, we would turn on the fireplace & if we wanted to cool down, we would open up the doors. The hotel was not very receptive to us checking in early, but it gave us an opportunity to drive around the town before check in. The toilet paper wasn't Cottonelle, but what hotel offers that? The wireless internet connective password didn’t work for us, but we had our own wireless connection, so we never investigated getting that corrected. Those would be our only gripes & we are very picky. The room was very clean, comfy, & had a great a contemporary feel to it.

My wife and I spent five days at the Newpark Resort and had a wonderful experience. We were in a suite, number 411 which was located on the top floor middle, the views were just sic!!!

We had all the tools of home - fridge, stove ect. which was nice, after the third day of skiing we were happy just to be sitting inside looking out.

The lobby is world class and is only out done by the stunning panoramic views of all three Park City Ski Resorts in front of you.

We really enjoyed the location as well. Food, shopping, movies and nightlife were just a short walk from the hotel giving us the freedom to enjoy the ski resorts during the day, but all that Park City has to offer at night. The price seemed very economical compared to ski in / ski out places we looked.

I would definitely stay again and reco this resort hotel to anyone planning on staying in PC

The facility is very nice - nice lobby with fireplaces, great pool and decent workout room. Note that there's no continental breakfast (at least there wasn't when we were there).

I stayed in a double rather than in one of the suites, and the size of the doubles would be one of my only complaints - it is pretty cramped in there. There's no desk, though the coffee table swings up to serve as a desk, which didn't work out that badly in the end. Otherwise the room is very nice too - large bathroom, comfy bed and very plush comfy towels.

It's in a suburban "lifestyle" mall-type setting - there are a number of stores and cafes and a Whole Foods market. Check out Reef's Kitchen Middle Eastern nearby, one of the best (and cheapest) restaurants in Park City.

  • Liked — Clean, high-quality facility.
  • Disliked — Forgot to mention in the review - the walls are thin and sound travels.

This hotel is brand new and lovely. We stayed in a suite. It was beautiful and fully equiped. It was so nice that one afternoon of our trip we stayed in our room, sat on our leather sofa, turned on the fireplace and just relaxed looking out at the beautiful view of the Utah mountains right outside our balcony!

The hotel is located just a few miles outside of town, across from a wildlife preserve, so it is relatively quite. But it is at the end of a complex that has restaurants (everything from an ice cream shop to a few high end restaurants), boutiques, stores, and even grocery shops. So the hotel is conveniently located with access to everything, without being in the middle of too much hustle and bustle. It was relaxing and made our stay so enjoyable! We hope to be back again soon.

We stayed in this resort during President's week in February. Our unit was townhouse #17, right around the corner from the hotel that was still being built. There was a lot of construction going on while we were there, welders, dump trucks, back hoes, and construction workers everywhere, but since we were skiing most of the day, it didn't bother us too much.

The unit had nice granite counter tops and stainless steel appliances, a big master bedroom and bathroom with a large walk in shower, but the other bedroom and bath was small, with two twins. There was also a futon in the upstairs hall. Perfect for a family, but not equal sleeping accommodations for two couples. We enjoyed the small private hot tub on our deck after skiing all day. It didn't work the second night, but was repaired immediately the next morning. Also, this unit didn't have any internet access. The front desk was kind enough to let me use their computer to check on flights though.

The location was great, lots of shopping including a Whole Foods, plus it's right off the highway and right down the road from the ski resorts. There was also a free shuttle but after they forgot to pick us up from the mountain (after calling for 2 hours), we drove to the ski resorts ourselves the rest of the time. Olympic Park is right across the street which we really enjoyed.

Overall, I would recommend Newpark Resort, but since it wasn't completed when we were there, I would call to make sure you won't have to deal with any construction if that might bother you.

  • Liked — Proximity to the slopes, comfortable and relaxing accommodations once inside the unit!
  • Disliked — The construction and lack of internet access in the townhouse.

We traveled to Utah in early February 2008 for some skiing in Park City. We stayed 8 nights at the Newpark Resort. Our crew generally likes to stay at a ski in / ski out, but we weren’t willing to pay a fortune for lodging this trip. I would describe our style as modern/contemporary – my husband and I and our best friends really like the granite counter tops, wood floors, stainless steel look – and we found this for a fraction of the price at Newpark. When we looked at the town homes on the website – we all thought “looks great, what’s the catch?” Honestly there was no catch – with the exception that this is not a ski in/ ski out location. We booked a 2 bedroom, 3 bathroom town house online for about $170 per couple – per night. The accommodations included an attached single-car garage, private decks, and a hot tub.

The town house was very clean! The master bedroom was huge and had a balcony. The bathroom was spacious – but shower only. There was plenty of closet space and a tv w/ cable. There was a small loft area w/ a daybed, but honestly it offers no privacy for whomever is sleeping there. It’s a good place for the kids or a buddy who decides to go at the last minute. The daybed also had a trundle so 2 people could sleep in the loft area. Te washer/dryer is also located upstairs in the same loft area, but was hidden away in a closet. The other bedroom was of decent size and had its own bathroom in the bedroom. This bathroom was average size but had a bathtub/shower combo. Downstairs there was another full bathroom, which I think is a plus – especially when trying to get ready. The floor plan downstairs is open. There is a small table with chairs to accommodate 4 and bar chairs so that people can sit and eat at the counter. The kitchen was well equipped with cooking necessities (pots/pans/silverware). The couch was comfy and there was a ultra comfy lazy boy type of chair. The fireplace kept us warm and toasty and we enjoyed the plasma which was mounted on the wall above the fireplace. My only complaint is that the sitting area was a bit small. This is ok for 4 adults and maybe a child, but don’t attempt to cram 6 adults in this house! The sliding glass doors in the living area open onto a deck. There was a private hot tub, but again the hot tub was on the small side – 4 adults barely fit in there. They had also added so much chlorine that my skin itched and my swimsuit smelled like chemicals even after several washings. We only used the hot tub once. 2 Markets are within walking distance. However, remember when you buy groceries that you still have to carry everything back! We were in a unit that was closer to the markets. Also for all of the java junkies – there is a Starbucks there too! I spent a little bit of time there because Newpark does not have WiFi! The resort is located at Redstone – which is a complex that has a movie theater, shopping and tons of eating establishments.

The resort also provides a shuttle to and from the following ski resorts – The Canyons, Park City, and Deer Valley at no additional cost. However, you must book your van reservation by 6 PM the night before. You can book a standard pick-up time for your entire trip if you wish. The local transit system is free and easy to navigate, but may I suggest you wear regular boots/shoes and carry your ski boots – the bus is difficult to manage while wearing ski boots and carrying poles/skis. All resorts have locker rentals. Cabs are abundant – a cab from the resort into downtown Park City will run you $18 each way.

While there we spent time at the No Name Saloon. Yes, you can drink alcohol in Utah! No Name had a nice vibe and they also had real beer – not the reduced alcohol content – just ask. Bistro 412 had great food and wine. We also ate at Robert Redford’s restaurant – Zoom – get a reservation! All of the resorts were great. Apres ski was good at Deer Valley and Park City. Try their signature cocktails!

The only drawback to this entire trip – was that at the end of March I discovered a miscellaneous charge from Newpark on my credit card. When I called to inquire about this charge – I was told that it was for our 8th night. I said that they were mistaken because both couples had paid in full prior to our arrival. I was given the run around and given several different far fetched explanations. I was promised that individuals from the accounting department would return calls – which never happened. I finally had to file a dispute with my credit card company. Hopefully this is the exception – not the norm. Honestly that was the only truly negative thing about our entire experience, but aggravating nonetheless.
