I stayed at the Hyatt Escala Lodge in Park City Utah for 1 night and did a video review of the hotel grounds and a two queen bed room.
If you’d like to see what the what the hotel and room looks like then check out the video here:
The Hyatt Escala Lodge is located at the top of the Canyons Park City Resort. There’s a small ski lift right next door the hotel. It’s just a short five minute walk to the Canyons main “village” and main lifts.
The Hyatt Escala Lodge is composed of three buildings. Two of the buildings are connected via inside corridor. The main lobby is in the Wasatch Building. Valet Parking and Free Underground Self Parking are available.
The lobby has a nice seating area in front of a fireplace. Also in the lobby is a quick-serve restaurant and the hotel’s sit down restaurant. There is a small “business center” with one computer. Next to the elevators is a “DVD-Now” kiosk where you can pick-up free DVDs to watch in-room.
The gym is on the smallish side, but it is very clean and well equipped with windows facing out to the pool area. There is a very nice heated pool and two heated spas. Sitting in the big round hot spa was one of the highlights of my stay. The gym area also includes a Sauna and a Steam Room.
We stayed in room 338A, of the middle building. It was on the top floor, with loft style ceilings. The room itself was a nice large size. Two comfortable beds. A pretty lame excuse of a desk, but I assume most people aren’t here for a work. There was a “mini-kitchen” area with a Sub-Zero mini-fridge, microwave, and sink. The bathroom was large with a separate tub and glassed in shower. Overall a very nice room.
I’d definitely consider staying here again on a trip to Park City.
