On the Olympic Highway in Park City
Park City Peaks Hotel is located on the highway, a short drive from town and from the slopes.
When people think of Park City, they think of the resort town Park City Mountain. Park City Mountain is where the U.S. Ski and Snowboard Olympic Team comes to train, and has lots of powdery, challenging slopes, but there are plenty of different slopes for different levels. The mountain originally opened as Treasure Mountain in the 60s, but was renamed in 1996 and today boasts eight peaks, nine bowls, and 16 chairlifts, as well as a snowboard park. During the summer months, the mountain turns into an amusement park with lots of rides, and slopes turn into hiking and biking trails.
The 131-room Park City Peaks is a budget hotel just a short drive from the slopes in Park City. Rooms have comfy beds and typical chain hotel decor in several shades of beige. The hotel lacks amenities like a fitness center and a spa, but the indoor/outdoor pool and Jacuzzi have mountain views, there is free parking and a free ski valet, and the on-site restaurant and sports bar are convenient spots for a quick bite before hitting the slopes. The numerous freebies -- free breakfast, a free shuttle, and even free hot chocolate delivery -- add value, though some are available only in winter.
