A Tale of Two Park Cities

This 190-unit complex of hotel-style rooms and condos is grand yet welcoming, with a towering three-story fireplace and open lobby beckoning you in, and similarly large rooms providing all the comforts of home (including big timber or stone fireplaces in each condo). An outdoor heated pool plus hot tub are great ways to soothe away the aches of too many turns (or tumbles?), while the staff stand alert to answer your every A-list beck and call. Rates for hotel-style rooms start at $360 in the regular season, with a two-bedroom condo running $800 per night over the same period.

For something a little closer to Main Street, though no less exclusive, consider the charming Silver Queen Hotel (435.649.5986; www.silverqueenhotel.com), a 12-suite boutique hotel that's a stone's throw from the Park City Town Lift. Beyond the killer location, each room exudes its own distinct styles, while amenities include a rooftop hot tub with mountain views and washer/dryers in every room for the long-haul stay. Rates start at $468 per night in the regular season.


Not content with a mere post-ski soak in the hotel hot tub? Then book yourself some true muscle rehab in one of Park City's dozen luxury spas, the pick of them being the 10,000-square-foot Spa at Hotel Park City (435.200.2000; www.hotelparkcity.com), conveniently located at the base of the slopes at Park City Mountain Resort and a 20-minute stroll from Main Street. Let one of their qualified sports masseuses give you a deep-tissue workover as you replay your day's athletic feats to the soft tinkle of New Age melodies and wave of aromatic scents. The spa also boasts steam and meditation rooms, Jacuzzi, hydrotherapy tub, and a whole menu of massages and treatments for total body rejuvenation. The 80-minute Deep Tissue Sports Massage costs $180.

With your limbs now like loose spaghetti, turn your thoughts to food: Main Street is lined with a number of classy, eclectic places to eat, including the atmospheric Wahso (570 Main St., 435.615.0300; www.wahso.com). The creative menu twists Asian staples like duck or Thai curry into more modern platters, with fusion flourishes and unexpected local ingredients. And while the combos don't always work (oyster tempura, anyone?), the restaurant receives full marks for its bold style and mouthwatering flavors. To really cap off a grand day, choose from over 100 wines in a cellar that has garnered Wahso accolades from foodie bibles like Wine Spectator.
