“Amazing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 1, 2014

We stayed at the Washington School House Hotel in October 2013. The hotel is absolutely amazing. Michael greeted us upon our arrival, helped us with parking and our bags, and we were off on a wonderful experience. The feeling is like being a home you never knew you had. The staff is warm, helpful, and makes you feel immediately at home. The rooms are all unique and cleverly situated. While not large, our room was extremely comfortable and had plenty of space.

Once we settled in we joined other guests in the living room for drinks, a snack, and some great conversation. Breakfast in the morning was wonderful as well. Every detail is attended to, and in the best way possible.

It was raining out so we did not visit the pool or spa, but they are on a lovely deck in the back of the building.

If you like boutique hotels, don't hesitate to consider Washington School House.

This very well appointed inn is located on the top of main street and reminds me of a New England inn. If you are going to Park City or Deer Valley to ski or snowboard, I would recommend staying at a hotel that offers better skiing accommodations. It was incovienent to get back and forth from the slopes. I will staying someplace else when I return to Park City.

S R,

Thank you for taking the time to review Washington School House Hotel. Given our centralized location in the heart of Old Town Park City, we strive to make transportation as seamless as possible by providing a ski valet and complimentary ski shuttle to all three local resorts. I am sorry that you found it inconvenient to travel to Deer Valley and The Canyons. Please feel free to email me directly at michael@washingtonschoolhouse.com. I would very much appreciate hearing more about your experience.

Regards,

Michael Gregory

We had a wonderful stay at WSH. We stayed there for 3 nights for our ski trip in Utah. The location is awesome! The food was great.The services were excellent. All staffs were friendly and was able to assist for anything we could ask for. They were so terrific! Cannot wait to go back!

We just returned from a 5 night stay at the WSH and we are already trying to figure out when we can get back!

We are a family of 5 with 3 boys ages 18 months-7 years and (if you have kids these ages you know) vacations, while fun, can be a lot of work - especially ski vacations with all the gear, logistics, schlepping, etc. The staff at the WSH worked tirelessly to help us have one of our best family vacations ever. Starting with breakfast...the food was amazing, the coffee hot and the staff so nice and accommodating. After breakfast, they would help us get geared up (even helping to buckle the kids' ski boots as we were buckling ours - again, people with young kids know what a help that is) and run us up to the mountain, where they had helped us figure out the ski school/childcare situations. At the end of the day, they come get you and again help get everything and everyone back to the hotel, where we would swim/soak in the fabulous pool and hot tub and they would bring us lovely apres-ski treats.

I would highly recommend this place to anyone - families with kids like ours but also singles or couples. The space is lovely, so well appointed but also feels cozy and inviting; the staff is terrific - helpful, thoughtful and kind and the food is great. Oh and you cannot beat the location either. You can so easily walk into town but it feels very quiet and secluded when you are at the hotel. Now if they were only here to help us get unpacked and get all this laundry done…

Thank you, WSH!

This is a gem of a place, in a great location really close to the action & the slopes in the heart of Park City. Easy to walk to the restaurants & shops of main street but lovely quiet location.
We only stayed for 1 night at the end of a ski trip to another resort in Utah as everyone said we should check out Park City before leaving the area. The staff during the reservation process were exceptionally helpful. After some initial confusion about allowing a 1 night booking on a weekend they agreed to honour the fact that the first email I had received stated this was possible. They were then extremely helpful in making a restaurant booking before our arrival as it was a holiday weekend. Although we didn't ski. the staff were also great with making transport arrangements & trying to help us book a bobsled ride at Olympic Park
We booked the 16ft ceiling room but were upgraded to a king room on the 4th floor overlooking the pool. The room had a beautifully comfy bed with lovely linens & pillows. It was fairly small as was the bathroom which had shower but no tub. Not much room in the bathroom for putting your toiletries but lovely underfloor heating.
The decor throughout is very tasteful & you do feel as though you are in a rather stylish magazine page but somehow it seemed to me to lack a bit of heart & warmth. Despite being a holiday weekend it seemed almost too quiet even though I think it was probably quite full. It made it appear formal rather than buzzy
The pool & hot tubs on the roof are in a beautiful setting with a lovely heated mat to walk on to get there. The jets in the tub were weak but made up for by the overall picture.
Breakfast was lovely with plenty of choices & generous portions. Lovely to have decent coffee included too. My only comment on food & beverage would be that we didn't really know what was available or included which would have been handy to understand & obviously only staying 1 night we didn't have a chance to get into the rhythm. Some info in the room on what was available & when would have been good. With no bar as such we sort of didn't know where to get a drink or how it all worked.
My only other negative would be that being a peak holiday weekend it was incredibly expensive & much as i thought it would be a treat for the last night of our trip I probably struggled to see the value but in lower season there would be a different perspective on that.

Just returned from a five day stay at WSH - wow. We had a wonderful stay. First of all the hotel itself is beautiful, modern, clean with spectacular artwork, meticulously maintained. The location could not be better, right downtown but not loud at all. The food - from the elegant and varied breakfast, the afternoon tea/apres ski to a private birthday dinner that we had - was by far the best we had during our entire stay in Park City. The staff is really careful, thoughtful and charming, they know how to be helpful and accommodating without being doting or gushing. From bringing tea (with honey) to our room while I was sick, quickly whisking our skis in and out, to leaving glasses of wine for us at the (spectacular) hot tub.
The hotel is lovely, beds are extremely comfortable, bathrooms are state of the art, pool and hot tub is way cool but the most outstanding feature of this fabulous hotel is the staff. They not only made us quite comfortable while we were at the hotel but made reservations, gave us tips on not only where to go but what to try, making our entire stay in Park City wonderful.

Incredibly tasteful boutique hotel that helped make our stay one of our best trips in years. Staff at WSH is unparalleled. They help with everything from making the best dinner reservations to picking you up and dropping you off at the ski hill whenever you call. The breakfasts included arguably some of the best food in park city, and the inclusive afternoon cocktails, snacks, and wine on request were top notch. And the interior decor is superb.
