Top Reasons to Stay at Goldener Hirsch Inn
- This AAA Four Diamond hotel is modeled after the Hotel Goldener Hirsch in Salzburg, Austria. Many of the hand-carved furnishings are imported from Austria.
- It’s in Deer Valley Resort, whose slopes are great for hiking in warmer months. If you make the trek up, you earn free passage on the chairlift back down; enjoy panoramic views of the Wasatch and Uinta Mountains along the way.
- A three-minute drive gets you to Park City’s main street, which is lined with art galleries, shops, and restaurants where you can dine alfresco.
- The inn’s 20 rooms and suites are individually decorated and feature hand-painted furnishings and down comforters. All rooms have air conditioning and some have private balconies.
- In the Bavarian-style dining room or on the flower-filled outdoor deck, you can sample American and European dishes such as the wiener schnitzel or the Niman Ranch new york strip loin. You will receive a complimentary cheese fondue appetizer when you order two entrees off the dinner menu.
- The concierge can arrange airport transfers, dinner reservations, and pedicures at one of the nearby spas.
Highlights of Park City, Utah
- Spring/summer activities at local ski resorts: At Park City Mountain Resort, you can weave through groves of trees on miles of hiking and mountain-biking trails. The Alpine Coaster, open year round, hurtles down the mountain at speeds of up to 30 miles per hour.
- Historic Main Street: Park City's former saloons and boarding houses have given way to more than 100 independent boutiques, 30 art galleries, and 50 restaurants along this main drag.
- Sundance Film Festival: For about 10 days each January, Park City glams it up Hollywood style as the host of this film fest. When Sundance isn’t in town, you can catch a play, concert, or comedy show at the circa-1929 Egyptian Theatre.
- History museum: Located on the main drag, the 12,000-square-foot Park City Museum chronicles the town’s history with artifacts and interactive exhibits. In the eerie museum basement, you can check out the former territorial jail—nicknamed “the dungeon” for its dim lighting, stone walls, and rusted leg irons.
