I stayed with my family at the Silverado Lodge in April of 2023. It was a good place and a great value but could improve in a few ways.
Park City has two primary “bases” (Mountain Village and Canyons Village) along with a lift that directly services Park City’s downtown. Mountain Village and the downtown lift directly access the Park City side of the resort and Canyons Village directly accesses the Canyons side of the resort. It is possible to ski between the bases though it takes multiple lifts. There is also a bus system but we have found the bus between the two bases to be too infrequent. Also the bus from Park City stops at the lower parking lots where you still need to take a gondola or a shuttle to the Canyons Village.
The Silverado is in the Canyons Village of the Park City resort. It is about a 10 minute walk uphill to the Canyons Village and main Canyons lifts (Red Pine Gondola and a bubble chair). There is a shuttle that stops at the Silverado every 5-10 minutes going both up the hill one stop to the Grand Summit Hotel (a 5 minute walk from the village) and down the hill to the lower parking lot/bus transfer and to the Waldorf.
- There is a ski check and small rental shop in the lobby.
- There is an outdoor pool (fairly warm) and outdoor hot tub
- There is a gym but it could use an update and is also windowless. It has two treadmills, one bicycle, one other piece, a set of modern dumbbells going up to 50 lbs, a body leg lift station, step, dumbbell bench and a 3 stack hotel style weight machine. All Life Fitness brand. Also a few mats, some super squishy rolls and two small yoga balls.
- When booking through Park City/Vail at least, the hotel exchanges towels and provides unlimited coffee, coffee filters, white sugar, laundry detergent, trash bags and more.
- At least in our case parking was included. Parking is in the basement of the hotel accessed with your room key. The garage has one of those super fast opening doors.
- There are two elevators (at least).
- There is a game room in the basement.
We stayed in room 101A&B.
101A has a living room with a fold out couch with a fairly comfortable memory foam bed (full, I think), full kitchen (range, large fridge, microwave, dishwasher, disposal, toaster, drip coffee maker) loaded with dinner and cookware, eating bar with two stools, small table with two chairs, washing machine (see below), closet and full bathroom with jacuzzi tub.
101B is a bedroom with a king bed, bathroom with shower, and small area with a mini-fridge, microwave, and 1 cup coffee maker.
There is an outer door and an inner hallway that connect 101A & 101B. The front desk will give you stoppers to keep the interior doors open. However, it would be ideal to provide a method of closing the inner doors without locking them for privacy without worrying about which room your key is in.
The rooms were fairly modern, large and comfortable with extremely high ceilings (maybe 12’).
There were a few improvements that could be made
- Add a clothes dryer. The washing machine has a drying feature which would be amazing if it worked. However, after a 3 hour wash and dry cycle, the clothes still need to be hung up overnight at least to dry. This means that you need to pack more as there is a longer wait for clean laundry and you spend a lot of time hanging clothes on the hangers in the closet.
- Don’t use locking hangers. No one wants to steal the hangers.
- Provide a housekeeping option for a reasonable price. Note: housekeeping was not included in our stay but they will exchange towels. They say they will exchange them in the room and take the trash but that didn’t happen the one time we asked.
- Replace the TV’s with larger smart TV’s. The TV’s include a pretty extensive cable package which is nice, but it is 2023 and I would prefer to be able to watch streaming channels than HBO3. Apx $20 fix to buy a Roku Stick or a bit more to upgrade to a 50”+ smart tv.
