Leaving the hotel – The Yarrows, Park City, Utah – A summary

By on February 20, 2015 in General, USA

Well, we have spent 6 nights at The Yarrows…

As hotels go it is not great, but it isn’t awful. The room was warm, clean and comfortable. The only complaint about the room was in the incredibly noisy heating system that we had to switch off at night so we could sleep. This meant we often woke to a cold room, but at least the heater control was in reach of my bed.

The hotel is of an odd design. It felt a bit like a prison with its square blocks. The corridors are also a little strange in that they have kinks in them that means they appear to be shorter than they should be to run the length of the building. It is hard to explain – it gives the building an odd feel and I think it accounts for why I often got lost.

Breakfast in the hotel was a good American style buffet breakfast of bacon, eggs, hash browns and porridge. There was also a ‘variable’ of pancakes and other ‘American treats’ served on various days. Alternatively there menu from which you could order.

The hotel has a ski room, but nowhere to store boots.

The hotel staff were friendly and helpful.

One of the best things about the hotel is its location. Just across the carpark from the hotel is a Fresh Market (supermarket), which was very handy for snacks and beer, and the bus stops for the free buses to and from town are just a few minutes walk from the hotel. An additional plus is that the Squatters Craft Beer Bar is just a few minutes walk from the hotel.

The hotel is also equal distance between The Canyons and Park City ski areas, which are just a few minutes drive away, and it is conveniently located to get on the road for the 45 minute drive to Solitude, Alta and Snowbird ski areas.

The hotel has recently been purchased and is due to undergo a major upgrade and improvements in the summer of 2015. Work has already started when we stayed.
