For five years in a row, Deer Valley Resort has been named the number one North American resort by SKI Magazine, while Forbes Traveler named Park City one of the twenty prettiest towns in the United States. With only eight thousand year-round locals, Park City attracts nearly four million tourists and more than half of them are skiers.
Nestled in the Wasatch Mountains of Deer Valley, the St. Regis Deer Valley in Park City, Utah was completed in December 2009 at a cost of $320 million. One of the largest projects to be completed in the state of Utah after the economic scares of 2008, the opening of the St. Regis Deer Valley was heralded as a harbinger of good times ahead.
In 1904, John Jacob Astor IV, son of the visionary Lady Astor, opened the St. Regis in New York. With the help of his mother’s acumen and superior taste, Astor strove to create an establishment that would enable his Gilded Age cohorts to feel as comfortable at the St. Regis as they would in their own palatial residences.
Spanning twelve acres along the fabled Deer Hollow run, the St. Regis Deer Valley is a slope-side, bespoke resort with 177 guest rooms, including 67 one-bedroom suites that can be combined with single rooms to form multiple-bedroom, en suite residences.
More than half of the St. Regis Deer Valley resort is given over to the public spaces. A soaring double-height lobby showcases a two-sided stone fireplace. There’s also a library with complimentary beverage service throughout the day and evening, including wine and Champagne. An expansive outdoor terrace sports an all-season, infinity-edge swimming pool.
With reservations of five or more nights through April 15, 2013, guests can reserve a half day of skiing with Bahrke, the two-time Winter Olympics medalist who won the silver medal on the famed runs of Deer Valley Resort in 2002.
