It’s not often when a hotel property is ideal for both families and adults traveling without children. But in Park City, Utah’s Newpark Town Center, the Newpark Resort Hotel pleases both groups equally. It’s close enough to plentiful activities no matter the season, and for those staying more than a couple of nights, the rooms with a washer/dryer combo and kitchen are convenient for everyone. It’s also on the Park City shuttle route, making it relatively easy to get around in the area if you don’t have a car (but if you do, there’s complimentary parking).
The hotel’s guest rooms range from deluxe rooms to one- and two-bedroom suites to two-bedroom townhomes. All rooms include a fireplace, 32-inch HDTV, Keurig coffee brew stations, radiant-heated tile floors and plush robes. All hotel suites add a fully equipped kitchen, an in-room washer/dryer and a private deck with hot tub that is freshly filled prior to each guest’s arrival. Winter rates at the hotel start at $199 (townhomes start at $459) and standard summer rates start at $129 (townhomes start at $209).
The hotel’s spot in the Newpark Town Center, Utah’s only LEED-certified land development, allows the flexibility to choose between a handful of restaurants, stores and entertainment options (like a movie theater and bowling alley)—all within walking distance. And speaking of walking distance, there’s a nearby connection to the Park City area trail system where you can Nordic ski and snowshoe in winter. In summer, hit the trail on foot, bike, or horseback.
In winter, three ski resorts (Canyons Resort, Park City Mountain Resort and Deer Valley Resort) are only a few minutes’ drive away. Even though the 2002 Winter Olympics were held nearby, you don’t have to limit yourself to the winter season to enjoy the Utah Olympic Park—where the speedy bobsled operates year-round. I will say, however, I’m glad I tried it out on the ice.
One of my favorite things about the Newpark Resort Hotel was winding down from a day of skiing in the hot tub on my deck, and looking out over the Town Center’s Sun Calendar Plaza and the vast nature preserve. Just a few feet away was my toasty suite, and if it weren’t for all the remaining fun in Park City, I felt I didn’t have to go out at all.
