Full disclosure: I have never been a guest at this hotel. But I was lucky enough to be able to visit during the Park City Museum's recent Historic Home Tour, since the Washington School House Hotel was originally built in 1889 as an educational facility for grades one through three. What was once a simple, three-room schoolhouse is now a jaw-dropping gorgeous boutique hotel just steps away from bustling Main Street and a few blocks from Park City Mountain Resort's Town Lift. Architectural details, like a view of the old schoolhouse bell as you walk up the staircase, make it a one-of-a-kind destination. The setting lends itself to under-the-radar getaways, where guests can enjoy a private locale away from the busy hotel scenes. If money is no object, the property would be perfect for a family reunion, wedding or Sundance group homebase. For those who have to live within a budget, like me, it's worth putting on the Top Travel To Do List once the lottery hits.
