My husband and I just returned from one week in Park City and loved the Summit Watch. While the other Marriott property is on mountain, the Summit Watch was still the better local. First, we had a one bedroom unit that was clean, spacious, had a kitchen (With blender for our morning shakes), and also included a fireplace and jacuzzi bath. The bath was big for us as we are older and love to soak when we get back from skiing. The hotel was also very surprising quiet. When we arrived we were put on the road side and being also on the first floor we figured we would be hearing noise all night. To the contrary, we never once heard road noise nor did we hear outside traffic either. The rooms were much quieter than we expected!
Next, we loved the location! Park City has great dinning and being in-town gave us the opportunity to walk and try out different locals. It also allowed us to go to other mountains more readily (Deer and the Canyons) as well as participate in the town's great Apres Ski locations.
Third, the town lift was literally a two minute walk from our room. We dropped our skis off at the lift on the way back at night and for 3 bucks had them stored then walked home-that simple.
Fourth, the pool and hot tub areas were terrific as well as the staff's willingness to be helpful with dinner ideas, schedules and the like. We really only had one complaint while we were there. It seemed that the cleaning staff showed up every day at 3pm right when we were getting back from the mountain and invariably caught us showering or napping. Once we asked for them to change the timing though the hotel readily made that change.
We loved Park City and were really happy with our choice of hotels there. If you are going for an extended period I would highly recommend getting one of the suites-it did provide that extra room we wanted along with laundry in room and space for us to watch different TV's occasionally as well.
We are already planning a return trip!
