Best Things Nearby:Skiing, Restaurants, art galleries. The Olympic Village, Salt Lake City.Best Things About the Resort:The unit is fabulous. The outdoor pool and hot tob are gorgeous. Skiing is outside your door.Resort Experience:Yes. I went to ski country in the summer. But it is just gorgeous there. I saw the ski lifts out my window and imagened the winter wonderland it must be. There were mountain bikers enjoying the hills, but I''m not that brave. The resort must have been pretty new because it was fabulous. The unit is the "lock off" type with a one bedroom with a full kitchen, and then a lock off studio-style with a microwave, mini-fridge and c...Read More

We went to Spencer's for lunch. It is located in the Hilton and parking is free in their garage with validation. The first thing the hostess asked us is if we wanted to join the club, because it is a "private club". We were charged $5 for a 2-week membership so that we could order a glass of wine. In SLC, you have to join the club to drink alcohol. My Zinfandel was $10 and the merlot was $8. I got the London Broil medium rare and it was a bit rare for me.

Picasso's was great. We chose the combo plate with Spanish ham, cheeses and olives to start. It came with a couple crackers. We had to ask for bread. The sangria was delicios and went down like cool aid. A glass was $5. We should have just gotten the pitcher. We also got the meatballs in a tomato sherry sauce. They had chili powder in them which was strange for Spanish food. And the 3 large meatballs were filling. The bacon wriapped shrimps were excellent. By then, we had no room for dessert. I love tapas, so this was a treat to find a restaurant in Park City. In the summer in the newspaper and at the resort, 2 for 1 coupons are prevalent. That was a bonus.
