More about Marriott Hotel Park City
We stayed for 1 night at the Park City Marriott and it was OK. We arrived very late after a long drive from Jackson, WY. It was located in a remote-ish place. The beds are nice and comfy at most Marriotts now - so that is a plus! When we walked in the room, the cabinet that held the tv shook and rattled. The ac blower was so loud that it actually scared my 5 yr old in the morning! We did stay on the concerige floor which included a free breakfast for all 3 of us on Sunday morning. There was an omlette station and waffle station - nice touch! The staff was friendly and accomidating to our 2:30am arrival!
The hotel is okay, but there was a really odd smell in our room. The decor was very old, it looked the hotel was just kind of run down. There were mildew stains on the carpet in places in the hallway and elevators.
On the positive side, the beds were comfortable and the services were adequate.
One side note: the person in front of us in line to check in had his room taken by someone else and the hotel had no room for him.
It was good
Stayed here in mid August while at a conference. The king room was plenty spacious. They were doing some renovations in the hotel, so there was mess and noise due to that - but, not a huge problem. If you can get a really good rate, it's an okay place to stay. There are a few inexpensive places to eat (and some expensive ones) in walking distance. If in town again, I would probably try another place.
Probably the best bet for kids and value- but it's out of the way.
This is a newly renovated hotel with a great pool area that is very kid-friendly. The theming is upscale and you feel like you should be paying much more. The only downside is that it's out of the way and not near much except for a few strip malls -- but the drive into Park City is maybe 5 minutes so that's not too bad. If it were just my wife and I looking to spend a bit more $ we'd stay in downtown for sure. With the kids this is great.
The hotel is fine and adequate, however, it is not the lap of luxury. Nevertheless, the price charged for the hotel is a very fair amount considering you are in a city that charges a premium for accommodations and food.
I do have problems with certain things in the hotel. They seem to want to charge you for services that are typically free in most other hotels. If you want to connect to the internet with your own computer, there is a ten dollar charge per day; no free wi-fi. They really get you if you did not bring you computer. If you want to use their computer and printer in the lobby, the charge is $1 per minute on the computer and per page printed. In addition, any local call is also $1.
The other problem is that the sound insulation. I could easily hear conversations in the adjoining rooms and the footsteps of person walking in the room above mine.
Stayed early September. Enjoyed the stay,Good value breakfasts, we were served by very friendly and kind Lady.
Missed place to sit in the open air, weather was warm and sunny.
Pool area is inside and the pool water is a little on the warm side.
No free internet acces for guests, you have to join the "businness lounge" and pay rip off rates. Location is ok, not exactly downtown, but really excellent free bus service, that actually operates to the timetable, whips you there in a few minutes. Excellent wine store just next door to the hotel, very wide range available.
Would stay again.
Great place to stay
Fine hotel, very comfy bed, larger-than average room. I stayed on 4th floor -- "concierge" level -- but didn't pay extra, and it seemed mainly to mean bacon & eggs for the free breakfast. Yes, as other posters note, it's about a mile from downtown Park City, but there's a free bus every 20 minutes that comes right to the hotel's door, or you can take the fairly interesting walk (uphill). And a bunch of restaurants within 2-3 blocks: the Grubsteak, Adolphs, others. I was there for a conference of about 150 people, and all services seemed well managed. Pool is bigger than at most hotels, as was fitness center. Starbucks in the lobby a bit variable, quality-wise, but hey, its right there in the lobby! I'd definitely stay there again, but if I was skiing I'd investigate the other Marriott (Summit Watch) right across from the Town Ski-Lift, tho I'm sure it's much more costly.
This is a good value hotel (with a very nice lobby) which is well situated for access to the three ski resorts in Park City - although there is a shuttle, you really need a car as the hotel is a long way from the city centre. The breakfasts were very good, but the evening meal was terrible (one of the worst I have ever had in a hotel) - although the resturant advertised vegetarian food, it only served pasta with boiled vegetables! Hot apple cider (with rum) is served to guests in the evening, which is lovely after a day on the slopes. In conclusion I would suggested that this hotel is is excellent value, but its facilities are quite basic.
Very good value for a family in ski season
Our family of 2 adults + 2 teenagers stayed for a week before Christmas ans overall the stay was very enjoyable. The rate was exceptionaly good value for 4 including breakfast ( US189 p/night).The location is about a mile away from the town and a bit further to Deer Valley where we skiied. Location was no problem for us as we had a car. There is a very reliable shuttle but it is a bit long winded, so we found driving to DV more convenient. The hotel is located in a side street, surrounded by low rise residential and office buildings, so don't think it is in the middle of a snow field !( as the pictures suggest) That had the advantage of the hotel being quiet. The room (on Concierge level ), was spacious with 2 v. comfy beds, separate basin area outside bathroom, good towels and bath products, fridge. The room looked out to central courtyard, so no view but there is nothing to see except the street.. The included breakfast was a bit chaotic at times ie, not enough food, plates, cutlery until they washed up and seemd to be run by very pleasant but young inexperienced staff. On 2 mornings when things were v. hecitc however they gave us vouchers for the restaurant so we took it in our stride. The hotel could organise the concierge level a bit better, as clearly they were under pressure as soon as the US school holidyas started, but as far as we were concerned the rate was so good that any breakfast was a bonus. The ambience in the foyer is impressive, and it has all the conveniences, of the Starbucks, gift shop and ski shop, Resatauant was fine and reasonable. There is coin laundry on the concierge level as well, which we found v. useful. Overall a very good deal if you are skiing, and have a family.
Not Ready for Prime Time
my friend and I stayed here during second half of Sundance Film Festival - lots of problems. The room we stayed at on concierge level ($400 a night) was really nice - remodeled and comfy however the phone didn't work and there was a robe with a big hole in it left on our bed. The Business Center consists of one old desk with a broken printer the whole stay and a light with no lightbulb.... and it sits in a hallway !!! The staff was so underpar and uninformed that the volunteers from the festival knew more about the hotel than the paid workers. Not very bright - from the folks in gift shop, to front desk, etc. They don't hire the sharpest people. When we checked in (remember - $400 a night) they never told us about the concierge floor amenities, i.e. times, where or where do we get these goodies, and no one was around to help us with our luggage.... It is not a full service hotel....It was convenient for the film festival since it was on the shuttle route but little else to recommend it. If this was lower budget I would not complain.... gouged!!!
