“Amazing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 3, 2013

This is a 5+ star hotel. Stayed there with my family-wife and 17yr son from 11/26-12/1/13. Heard about hotel in T&L and then proceeded with my own research. This i more than a hotel, it is a home. The staff, love dress attire, jeans, boots and white shirts for girls, anticipate your every desire. Invited to my son for Thanksgiving dinner, staff asked if i need to bring anything-of course forgot the pies and they proceeded to contact and arrange from local bakery the pies. My wife forgot hairbrush, they brought her a tray of brushes to choose from. We had 2 rooms, both spectacular. Breakfast fabulous plus the French Press. Afternoon snacks to die for. Must must swim in pool at night-do not worry it is heated to 80. Restaurant selections excellent, and they are honey even with your own list. Simply amazing decor-all white-already have appointment with contractor upon our return to redo our bedroom. Location cannot be beat, 1 block off main street-walk into town, do not need to be bused as the other luxury hotels must do. Simply great experience.

Room Tip: son stayed in 16' tall room main floor which he loved. My wife and i on the 4th floor-floor to...

Our stay at WSHH was perfection! The level of service and accomodations were top-notch every step of the way. We very much enjoyed the french-pressed coffee service to our room in the morning and the made to order gourmet breakfast in the morning. Every staff member we encountered provided warm, welcoming and detailed service. It was also VERY close to Main Street in Park City which made it easy to hit restaurants and nightspots easily. Our experience there was heavenly!!!

Room Tip: The front desk staff helped us choose a room that fit our needs. It overlooked the pool/hot tub area...

This is a very special property. Not only is there a very refined sense of design and decor, but the service is wonderful yet relaxed. We got our room for under 300 dollars, but I think the peak prices are insane and not to me probably not worth it (but to be fair, I don't know what normal ski seasons prices are at the other places). In any event, there is an amazing pool, great attention to detail, nice books, wonderful linens, nice drinks, and a top notch breakfast. I will be coming back to PC just to stay here in the future...but of course during the low season. It's a place where you feel like you are in a great house in a design magazine and not like a commercial hotel. The other guests seem to be seasoned travelers or interesting people.
My only complaint is the fake plants. I think I saw only one, but I think fake plants/flowers have no place at boutique hotels, especially one of such a high caliber. Better to not have anything, or just use a pine cone/berry arrangement, etc.

If the reception is reading this review, I want to thank the girls so much for their hospitality. They were very friendly and sweet and not overly-patronizing. The tone was just right and personable. Two thumbs up.

Room Tip: We stayed in the 16 foot ceiling room which I think is the least expensive, which doesnt have much o...

Dear 4567QBC,

Thank you for taking the time to share your experience. We are so glad you recognized the balance of attentiveness and privacy which we strive for in our service standards. The staff does read these reviews and they love hearing feedback from our guests. As a side note, our florist will be happy to know her arrangements are so perfect they are mistaken for fake (everything is real...we promise). We look forward to welcoming you back very soon.

Regards,

Michael Gregory

We have traveled internationally and in the states for years so have a bit of experience with a variety of accommodations including high end, luxury places. And OMG - this place is stunning! Every possible amenity is taken care of including the lovely extras in the room for bed and bath. Especially nice (and surprising) was the selection of wines and drinks, the just baked cookies and the light snack they offered in late afternoon (I think ours was a jambalaya. No cheese and crackers at this joint!). The breakfasts were made to order, delicious and served in the same room as the late afternoon break. Lovely.

Finally, I must mention the service. Prior to our visit, I received an email and a call and post-visit a card thanking us for our stay. And every single person we encountered provided top notch service during our stay.

Stay here. You will not regret it.

We were lucky enough to stay here for our honeymoon in March. I must say that it was extremely difficult to leave the hotel and hit the slopes. Every step of service was simply amazing. The staff went out of their way to make sure we had all our needs met along the way and the hotel itself was simply beautiful.

From breakfast, to transportation to and from the slopes, afternoon snacks in the pool, and fun treats left for us on the bed, everything was executed to perfection. It was a really refreshing experience and one we can't wait to have again.

The renovated school is beautiful. Good design, clean and fresh. The beds were incredibly comfortable, and the service was amazing. Michael, could not have been more accommodating. It is very close to downtown, restaurants, and shops. Great for couples, or a relaxing retreat. I will return to this hotel.

Not your usual grand Main Street hotel in the west. This boutique hotel has it all. The decor is a modern mix nouveau vintage and authentic antiques all wrapped up in grey velvet and white. It's bright and very friendly staff meets your every need. I was greeted with a savory snack and a very original cocktail list. The morning breakfast meets everyone's needs... Gluten free included. Walk to historic Main Street for shops and food, or hop a ride on the chairlift to hike or ski. Don't miss the rooftop lap pool.
