Review: Hotel Park City by Autograph Collection, Park City, Utah, United States

Booking the Hotel:

Looking at hotel options for this particular stay, Marriott had a lot of Vacation Club properties in town. Although they were available for public paid rates, I couldn’t find any reward point opportunities. I saw the St Regis and skipped over it for what was supposed to be a father / son holiday. That left a rather bland and dated looking Marriott property, or the Hotel Park City. I ended up with the Hotel Park City. With paid rates at about $650 USD per night, spending 200,000 Marriott Bonvoy points as a category 6 hotel (with the 5th night free) was a much better deal. A $20 a day resort fee was also added to the bill that was payable to the hotel directly.

Arriving to the Hotel:

On arrival at the hotel, we self parked the car and checked in. We were thanked for being a platinum member and we selected breakfast as welcome amenity. I am happy to report that despite past reports on Trip Advisor of breakfast being limited to a continental breakfast, it is now the full buffet breakfast on offer and not a short changed continental only version. The lobby is a grand space and was a nice place to arrive to after a day of skiing.

The Room: An Executive Suite

After getting our key, we self led to room #224 which was an Executive Suite. We didn’t get an upgrade but it was the middle of spring break and there are lots of people here, including full occupancy some nights.

Room had a bit of. Musty odor to it – solved by opening the large patio doors every day. The smell wasn’t so bad that we had to complain or change rooms.

The Executive Suite had a separate seating area in a sunken living room. It had a gas fireplace and the usual flat screen tv for comfortable viewing.

The suite sitting area and bed area was separated by a desk and television.

The suite was well equipped with dishwasher, mini fridge, hot plate, microwave, bose stereo, two flat screen televisions.

There was a large bathroom styled like every other resort Marriott in the USA, with a super strong rain shower. The toiletries weren’t anything to write home about, even though they were branded with the hotel spa.

The Views: Stellar Mountain Ranges

There was a small deck outside, with terrific west facing views into the sun overlooking the wintery golf course. There was also a peek – a – boo view of Payday on Park City Mountain.

Yeah – this will work for a winter view!!

Around the Resort: Swim Pools and Hot Tubs

The hotel also had lovely swim pools and a large hot tub. The hot tub was great after a day on the slopes.

The room had details on the ski resort shuttle busses. Unfortunately, the hotel is not ski in – ski out and the shuttle only runs a few times a day. You could always take the local city bus, but you might as well use the features of your “resort fee”.

Food and Beverage, including a Platinum Breakfast:

Breakfast was offered in the attached Ruth’s Chris’ Steak House. The breakfast buffet changed over every few days but got to be a bit repetitive after a 5 day stay. Otherwise, I was really happy that it was included and there were lots to eat on offer. Platinum Breakfast description and menu is shown below…

The Bottom Line:

The Hotel Park City was a comfortable place to stay in Park City. The rooms was comfortable, the views were terrific and the platinum breakfast was more than acceptable. The only minus of the property was that it was not a true – ski in – ski out property, meaning you had to rely on shuttles to get to and from the ski hill. Otherwise, I was more than satisfied with the stay here, and would easily return the next time I was in town.
