“Terrible Place”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 25, 2005

We booked the "Penthouse" condo at the Empire House (one of the numerous David Holland properties in Park City) for a ski trip in December 2004. It was described as the premier unit in the place, with a private hot tub in the room. And we paid a premium price, too! So it was horrible to check in and find that:

a) there was no elevator and we were faced with lugging all our ski gear up
three flights of stairs
b) the condo was terriblly old and funky, with torn-up fraying carpet, grimy
tiling, an old hot tub stinking of chlorine that we wouldn't venture to try,
and very old blankets literally full of holes on the bed.
c) not a soul on sight to take these matters up with...the place is run from
afar by the David Holland main office. So don't expect any service!!!
d) to make matters worse, the Empire House underground parking was so
tiny and cramped it was difficult to pull into, but when we parked in the
Park City Ski Area lot just across the street, we were towed! (Granted,
this was not the fault of the Empire House, but of very bad signage in
the parking lot, though it just added to our troubles)

The whole place was just so old and poorly kept up that it didn't feel clean or comfortable in the least. If it were advertised as a low-budget place that would be one thing, but I do NOT recommend staying there, especially at those prices!
