My husband and I were looking for a little weekend escape before the busyness of Fall begins. We live just about an hour and a half from Park City, UT. It is so fun going there because of the beautiful atmosphere; it almost feels as if we are further away from home then we really are. We decided to stay at one of our favorite places in Deer Valley, one that we feel is the best Deer Valley Resort.
I recommend The Montage Deer Valley to everyone, whether you are looking to get away with your spouse or bring your kids along for a family-friendly vacation. This resort is so kid-friendly and offers so many things to do without having to leave the hotel. Honestly, for so many reasons this hotel is the way to do Deer Valley. This was our second time staying here and it never ceases to amaze us. The hotel itself is amazing, but the staff takes it up a notch and makes you feel like royalty.
When we first arrived at The Montage, we were greeted with complimentary valet parking. There is something about arriving at your destination and not having to worry about parking, hauling bags in, etc. Each one of these guys were extremely nice and courteous.
We walked into the beautiful lobby and there was someone waiting for us to walk us to our room and get us checked in.
If you stay here, there is a good chance you may be greeted by Andrew, a lobby ambassador. Both times we have stayed here Andrew has taken care of us in one way or another. We feel as if we have become friends with him because he was so nice and willing to go out of his way to make us feel welcome.
Once we got settled into our room we were able to relax and enjoy the beautiful scenery of Deer Valley. The beds are so comfortable and the hotel offers a complimentary turn-down service at night which also includes soothing music, water, and specialty chocolates!
The robes and slippers are also complimentary. One thing I want to mention is that the complimentary toiletry items are wonderful! They smell so delicious!
This was our view right outside of our room.
We decided to head outdoors and ride up one of the ski lifts right outside The Montages' doors. The Ruby Express runs in the summertime, as well as the winter, and we rode it up to the top of the mountain and hiked down.
The views are amazing! This is just another reason why I vote this the best Deer Valley resort.
If you are interested in other outdoor activities you can visit Compass Sports in the hotel where you can find active sportswear and equipment.
The hike down took us about an hour and once we were back we decided to eat dinner. One of the reasons we love the hotel so much is because you literally do not have to leave to be entertained and to eat. If you do, however, wish to venture down to Main Street in Park City, the hotel offers complimentary transportation.
We had dinner at one of their restaurants 'Burgers and Bourbon'. I had the most scrumptious cheeseburger ever, my husband had wings, and we both topped it off with some yummy shakes.
We hung out the rest of the night at the hotel. We went and got in the hot tub, checked out their bowling alley and game room complete with arcade games and billiards. Something fun that The Montage offers as a complimentary activity is a s'more bar every night! There are many fire pits around the grounds and on their patio they have all the s'more ingredients including special flavored marshmallows, and you can make your own! How fun is that?
You can also play games outside such as bad-mitten, horseshoes, and a few others.
For breakfast in the morning we at at Apex, another hotel restaurant. It was so yummy, I recommend having the Corn Flake Crusted French Toast!
During our stay we were able to spend some time at the indoor pool and jacuzzi. It was beautiful and clean.
Our trip would not have been complete without a visit to the spa! After a couples' massage and some much needed relaxing time in the lounge, we felt very rejuvenated!
Great place to bring your family - another reason why it's the best Deer Valley resort!
I think next time we come to The Montage, we may bring our kids along. We were shocked at how many fun things there are to do with them!
I mentioned above that there is bowling in the hotel along with arcades and billiards. The swimming pools are a fun place for them to hang out. Our kids will love the s'more bar too!
Some other things that I didn't mention that the kids will love:
The Paintbox - The Paintbox is a program within the hotel that provides activities for kids ages 5-12 years. There is a special area designated for them to hang out, go on outdoor adventures, eat, or play games. There is a schedule of activities and allotted hours for children looking to join.
Meet Monty & Jonas - The Montage has Canine ambassadors, two Bernese Mountain Dogs named Monty ad Jonas. They make their appearances daily in the lobby to mingle with guests. We met Monty while was there and he was huge and so, so friendly; your kids will love him!
Movie Night - Some nights in the summer they will have movie nights out on the mountain lawn. Chairs, beverages, and freshly popped popcorn are provided.
I decided not to work out while on this vacation of ours, but I did check out the wellness center which I was very impressed with! Most hotels only have a small amount of machines and space but The Montage had a ton of machines overlooking the beautiful mountains and scenery. Th gym also has free weights, and even a class room which holds classes!
I do not have enough good things to say about The Montage Deer Valley. Honestly, your next trip to Park City/Deer Valley needs to be at spent the best Deer Valley Resort: The Montage.
I recommend it for your next anniversary, family getaway, in the summer or in the winter; I guarantee you will fall in love with it just as we have!
I took a ton of pictures during our stay and wish I could share all of them with you, but here are a few more!
