My daughter and recently I snuck off without the one year old and dad to Park City for the weekend, and while it was super tough to leave home for the first time without the littlest, being here has been incredible. So incredible there hasn’t been much time for blogging…which I think is the sign of a good trip. Well, there’s that and even my fingers are beyond exhausted from serious skiing!
While I will keep it short today, I wanted to offer a peek at what might be the best 15,000 Hyatt points per night I have ever spent. Now, in fairness, this property is now 20,000 Hyatt points per night as the price went up since we booked, but the point remains the same.
If you and your family like to ski, you must look at the Hyatt Centric Park City, formerly known as the Hyatt Escala Lodge. It is such a superb mix of mountain location, on-site amenities, and an easily digestible award chart price point. It was a steal when I booked last year as a Category 4, but it is still very fair as a Category 5 for 20,000 points per night when cash rates for base rooms can go into the $400 – $600 per night range during ski season.
We scored big time as we were updated to a suite that has way more room than we needed for our trip, but even without the extra space this property is so well thought out with an included ski valet, really fun heated pool/hot tub, friendly staff, shuttle to Park City, fruit-infused water at the ready in the lobby, and both a full service restaurant and a quick grab market area.
I’ll highlight this more in the full review, but note that it is only a ski-in property for intermediate and above skiers as there is no real beginner way down the mountain to this point, but even if the true ski-in/out feature doesn’t work for you, you only have to walk 3-5 minutes to the base of the mountain, or you can get the hotel shuttle to take you there.
I 100% plan to come back to the Hyatt Centric Park City for a future ski trip with my crew, and I can’t wait to share all the details about the property soon! If there are any details about the Hyatt Centric Park City you want to be sure I cover, please feel free to let me know in the comments section.
