“Ski trip 2012”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2012

Stayed at Sweetwater Lift Lodge, end of January 2012. Skiing trip.
Located at the bottom of the lift village at park city resort its about as close as u can get without staying in the village itself.
The entrance and receptions it located on the main road about 100yds above the carpark square with a check in carpark (10 mins max) on the road opposite the entrance which by the way is a ramp for people with limited mobility and a lift which serves all floors
The reception as an alpine hotel look to it with the staff being friendly and there when and if you need them and just there if you don't (its a style that suites me).
We were there on a time share exchange which was at the rear of the building ie.no view and had a 1 bedroom that slept 6. 4 in private.
Nice room with a gas fire heating was a little awkward to get set right but ok once set
room was nicely furnished with ample utensils but there was just 2 of us. 2 tvs, stereo, cooker, microwave etc.
Bathrooms clean with shampoo and conditioner one bathroom had a spa in it if you like that sort of thing I don't
Linen service was a DIY thing if you want towel and sheets changing you took them to the laundry and swaped them yourself. we wern't there that long so didn't avail ourselves of this service so I could be wrong about this
The hotel had no shop store bar just vending machines for soft drinks chips (crips) chocolate, no alcohol though. 7 11 about half a mile and farmers market about a mile away.
Underground car park restricted to about 8 cars on a first come basis when full on street parking only.
Small gym machines dated but funtional.
Heated outdoor pool and spa and a suana didn't use any of them. appeared to be clean and well maintained
Free Ski lockers are available. ask for one in phase 5 if possible it's near the slopes.
About a mile and a half away is the park city center Its walkable but don't forget you might have to carry that painting or statue back.
The local paper has coupons for 2 for 1 dining at some eatery's in the town which makes them very good value the paper is available at the front desk I was told it was free but it says $0.50 on the cover.
Nice place. I reckon you could spend a lot more and get far worse would go back in a heart beat.

Room Tip: front rooms have a view rear rooms don't

Stayed for a week. Had a 3 bedroom in Phase 5. Pros: within 50 yards of the chairlift @ Park City. Phase 5 offers extremely convienent parking and you get your own reserved space. Front desk is extremely helpful and nice. Ran into about 6 different people who worked at the frotn desk at different times and dont have anything negative to stay. Cons: A little noisy. If youre on the street side of the complex expect to hear traffic. Walls a little thin. If your neighbor is deaf and needs his/her TV turned up expect to know what they are watching. Maintenance of the units could be better.

All in all its a great place but I wouldnt pay $150-$200 a night here. Park City in itself is fantastic and is a great place not only for adults but plenty for the kids to do also!

We stayed in Room 50, which is really close to PC Mountain Resort. There were four of us (two couples) and we stayed in the three bedroom apartment. The apartment was clean and updated with granite countertops, nice fireplace, etc. Although there were only four of us, having an extra bedroom for the ski gear was great. It took us maybe 4 minutes to walk to the lift, with the resort being less than 1 block away (from our room). We were able to check in early and check out late (for a small fee). Main street is a 15 minute walk, but there are free buses if you want to wait for them. But, there are plenty of great restaurants in the resort area so you don't really need to walk down to Main St. anyway. Overall, I would definitely stay here again and recommend it. If there was more snow, then it would probably be a ski-in.

Room Tip: If you are walking to PC resort, then ask for a room that looks out onto Lowell st.

A little weird that the lobby was being remodeled during their holiday busy season but truly that was the worst of it. Great customer service at the front desk! We came early and they checked us in hours before official check in. I couldn't believe it. Our room was nicely decorated and was huge for the 3 of us. The kitchen is VERY small so don't expect much but was just fine for fixing breakfast and lunch for our small family. We saw lots of other families serving huge meals out of it so it is doable. We were able to get a locker for our ski gear at the end of the building so we were able to get dressed each day, walk to the end of the building get our ski equipment, cross the street and start skiing! Really should be labeled ski in ski out. Folks who parked in the parking lot had to walk farther than we did! We were so close we walked home for lunch each day saving us a bundle of money. You really can't get any closer than this for the money. We felt like we had found such a deal! The only downside was the NOISY family with young children above us. They seemed to think that 10:30 at night was a good time to get crazy and jump on the beds. However, the complex for the most part was very quiet, no parties (we were there over New Year's Eve) and the managers seem to really enforce quiet time. We loved that! Overall, we will for sure come back to the Sweetwater.

Room Tip: Ask for Lowell Avenue door entrance or Building 5 to be closest to the ski resort. Building 1 is c...

This was our second stay at Sweetwater (last visit…1/1/2010).

Quick notes: First, we booked through the Armed Forces Vacation club so our experience ($$$) may be different than other reviewers. Second, when we arrived the front lobby was under renovation. However, we weren’t there to vacation in the the lobby………..it’s all about the skiing. Finally, we stayed in guestroom #3.

I’ll review it PRO’s/CONS style…………..why? It’s organized, and I’m a lazy writer.

PRO’s

1. Great front staff. Very friendly, and helpful for all needs.
2. Great location, especially if you’re skiing at PC resort. However, the buses stop at the PC resort and can take you to other ski areas………….and it’s FREE!!
3. Large room (can potentially accommodate up to 6 people). Two beds + 1 pull-down; 2 full bathrooms and a full kitchen; 2 flat-screen TV’s and a gas fireplace.

CONS:

NONE

As far as the chances of us staying there again……two words: CAN’T WAIT!

This hotel was better than I expected. We had a one
bedroom suite. It had a kitchen, bedroom and living room.

I loved the park city transit system. They had buses that
took you all over park city. The bus stop was just outside in the
back of the hotel.

Went there for my anniversary and the stay was the worst stay i ever had. We originally had the two bedroom cottage. We walked in there and the unit was not cleaned at all. There were bugs on the floor and we noticed that the sheets had either not been changed or cleaned. Went back to the front desk and they changed us to a one bedroom which was bigger than the two bedroom cottage we originally had. It apeared to be better but after further inspection the sheets had a big yellow stain in the sheets. Also the jetted bath tub was not cleaned at all. The jets had dirt and grime like they have never been cleaned since the tub was installed. Maintenance was in ther supposedly fixing some things so we let them clean up and when we got back there was nothing done to the bathroom. We then went back to the front desk to complain and ended up walking out after being there for only about two hours. My overall impression of this place was not very good and ended up making my anniversary weekend not a very good one. Was very disappointed with the staff and how they treated me and the fact that they were not even willing to help me out. After talking to them even more we found out that they werent even going to change the sheets in either room and let them be pawned off for another guest to deal with in hopes that the next guest would not find them and ask them to be changed.
