The Peaks is a great place to stay for a ski vacation. It has
-an awesome breakfast (very handy before hitting the slopes),
-sells lift tickets to all the major resorts at the front desk
-has an awesome indoor/outdoor pool, an indoor hot tub, and an outdoor hot tub
-is located right in front of a city bus stop which provides % 100 free service to all the resorts, main street, and attractions around town
-has complimentary hot chocolate with whipped and cookies delivered to your room daily (and also, free!) (truly awesome after a day on the slopes)
-Very comfortable beds and great rooms overall
All of these features are what make it a great place to stay in the winter months for a ski vacation. One of the only drawbacks I found was that it is located quite a distance from downtown. This is nice if you want to get away from all the crowds, nightlife, people, etc. after a long day on the slopes. (I have a friend who stayed downtown and ended up having to listen to an outdoor rock concert blaring outside his window until 11 PM.) However, since most of the restaurants and resorts are near downtown, or at least in that direction (except for The Canyons), having to wait and take the bus just about everywhere can get tiresome. The location does, and doesn't, work in the hotel's favor.
Besides the location, the "Business Center" as I believe it was called, was rather small. Only a computer or two. This didn't affect our trip (a ski vacation - no business), but I could see having to wait for a computer being tiresome.
Another (very small) drawback, was that the outdoor hot tub didn't work on out last night staying there. Since the indoor hot tub was much smaller, many people who couldn't use the outdoor one, also were crowded out of using the indoor one.
Other than those small drawbacks, it is a truly great hotel. It's a perfect place to stay and use as a "home base" of sorts for skiers and boarders. We stayed there over MLK weekend in 2010, and had no issue with crowds. In fact, the quite hotel turned out to be quite the refuge from the crowded streets of downtown Park City. Overall, I would definitely recommend this hotel.
