I stayed at the Sky Lodge for two nights in early November for business. I was at the lodge with a group of 70 so I got to visit and see a variety of rooms. In my experience, the one thing that elevates the Sky Lodge above other five star places is the fact that I truly felt comfortable and completely "at home" there. The Sky Lodge is top notch without being pretentious. Following are some reasons why my visit was so positive.
*The staff is friendly and they all seem to go out of their way to anticipate guests needs.
*The suites are beautiful and many have decks with hot tubs. Some have floor to ceiling windows. The views are great.
*All suites seem to have well-appointed kitchens, comfortable sitting areas and I even saw a suite with a pool table.
*The bedding is top notch, most baths seem to be Kohler and the toiletries are Aveda.
*The spa is very nice and has a beautiful Japanese tea room.
*There seem to be fireplaces almost everywhere including one in an outdoor sitting area at the front entrance.
This was my first time to Park City but I look foward to going back and staying at the Sky Lodge again. I have no other Park City hotels to compare this to, but I can only think of a few reasons why one wouldn't stay at the Sky Lodge. The lodge is located in town and very convenient to the slopes, but some might prefer to stay slopeside. And the lodge is expensive, If I were skiing from dawn to dusk, I might just want a place to crash. However, this is a good place for a family with a non-skier or with family members who don't want to be on the slopes all day. You can walk to all of the restaurants and shops in town. I can't wait to go back and would be happy to stay there any season.
