Located mid-mountain in posh Deer Valley, the cushy Chateaux at Silver Lake (from $510; prices drop after March 25) places skiers just a boot-shuffle away from the high-speed quad lift to majestic Bald Mountain. The four-story hotel has a mix of spacious multiroom suites and Murphy-bedded studios, most with flip-switch fireplaces, roomy jet tubs, and homey (if generic) chalet décor.
The Treasure Mountain Inn (from $225) offers a quirky alternative to the corporate-resort competition. Rooms are owned (and therefore decorated) by individual families with varied tastes, but all make use of the hotel’s prime, top–of–Main Street location, chlorine-free therapy pool, and hand-picked DVD library.
The Washington School Inn bed-and-breakfast (from $175) sits on dead-silent Park Avenue, just two blocks from Park City Mountain Resort’s Town Lift. The 1889 landmark's original coal-storage room has been remade into a street-level sweat lodge. Splurge on one of the top-floor suites: They’re less cramped, and their windows aren’t blocked in by the hillside. (Irony alert: This ex-school no longer welcomes children as guests.)
Easily the cheapest option in town, bare-bones Chateau Après ($90 for two people), near the base of Park City Mountain Resort, is made for ski rats who just need a clean place to sleep and (possibly) shower.
