Max and I were recently hosted by Vail Resorts at the Grand Summit Park City for Max’s birthday and it was a blast. Stay tuned for the end of the review where we will give you our COVID-19 safety rating!

The Grand Summit Hotel is located in the heart of Canyons Village, which was purchased by Vail Resorts as part of Park City a few years back. Canyons Village has become a hotspot for ski-in-ski-out hotels and gives guests unparalleled access to exceptional terrain. Truth be told, Max and I prefer skiing the Canyons side thanks to the long groomers and (typically) shorter lift lines. The Grand Summit hotel is located conveniently next to the Orange Bubble lift at the base and offers an onsite ski valet for easy access to the mountain.

Canyons Village is a 10-20 minute drive, or free shuttle ride, away from Park City’s main street. While Canyons Village has a number of restaurants, bars and shops, it’s important to keep this in mind as you book. Canyons is home to the Waldorf Astoria Park City, Hyatt Centric and a few other hotels and residences.

When we arrived at check-in, we located a bellman who ended up being our best resource for information at the property. The Check In experience at the front desk was what I would call “mountain-standard”. The front desk agent was apathetic, vaguely rude and provided no information about the hotel, including how to get to the elevator. We were hosted by the property and the agent went as far as to ask me why we got a “free room”. That aside, we were checked in quickly and on the earlier side of the day and I appreciated the plexiglass barrier and hand sanitizer located at the front desk. As a note, masks are required on property and we love that.

We were checked into a wonderful one-bedroom suite that looked into the property with the ski hill behind it. The room is incredibly spacious, with two full baths, a large living room, dining table, full kitchen and bedroom. There are two fireplaces: one in the bedroom and one in the living room as well as mechanical blinds in both rooms.

Overall, we would 100% recommend this property. The lift access is the best in the entire Canyons Resort area, the property is stunning and pool area spacious and comfortable and the dining options and access to the village make this a top notch option in Park City. While we enjoyed our stays at the Hyatt Centric on points several years in a row, I would arguably choose this property over the Hyatt due to its unparalleled location, size-able rooms and general access to amenities.
