I stayed at The Sundial for a conference in late October 2011 (before ski season). I was there for four nights, and would have liked to have stayed longer.
The room itself was spacious, with a kitchen area that would have allowed me to prepare a full meal had I wanted. I had to be careful of the toaster setting, though, as I ended up charring a slice of bread and setting off the smoke detector one morning (this at a medium setting). The full-sized bed was comfortable, with very soft pillows - I slept very soundly. The bathroom was clean, and the water pressure in the shower as strong as I needed. The water did get hot, but I found letting the water run for a few minutes was necessary. I'm a taller guy (6'2"), and found the shower height adequate.
My room was on the second floor, so I had the option of walking out onto the ground level with a patio. This door was the thing I was most nervous about, as it took me a day to figure out how to lock it (after talking with the staff, I was told that it was a french lock - so turning the handle up activates the deadbolt, turning it down retracts it).
The complex as a whole was big, and still under construction - but I was able to get from this building across to the main building without difficulty for the daily conference events.
The grounds around the hotel were amazing, and I can imagine (although I've never been skiing) that it would be a great place to stay during the winter. As it was, I was able to hike up the mountain above the complex and enjoy some great views, and the drive in to historic Park City took only a few minutes. The location was a great mix between proximity to towns and cities and being "away from it all."
In all, I would recommend this location. If you have a conference at The Canyons, the Sundial is a great lower-cost alternative to staying in the Grand Summit. If you are looking for skiing, I could imagine this would be a good place to stay. It wasn't perfect, but nothing ever is - I would stay here again.
