Cream of the crop. Brightest crayon in the box. Sharpest tool in the shed. However you want to say it, Park City hotels are the best of the best. But some simply shine brighter than others, and those have made it on to our 2018 Staff Pick list.
Every year, we sit down with a bottle of whiskey and have a debate about which hotels went (and continually go) above and beyond in the areas that matter. Then, we crown them a “Stay Park City 2018 Staff Pick.” Some properties continue to impress us, time and time again, and some are new to the game, dethroning last year’s winners. Either way, our selection process is more intense and exciting than March Madness’s Selection Sunday and walking away with an award is no easy feat. Especially since all of our choices are unpaid and unsolicited. So, start your Park City vacation off knowing you’re staying in the pick of the bunch. These are the Stay Park City 2018 Staff Picks for Park City Hotels and Lodging.
