Zermatt Resort & Spa

... Park City. How can I describe it. If you can imagine John Wayne, skiing in the 21st century you may get what I am describing. It's ski resort with a cowboy twist and a tiny, very tiny, splash of Disney. It oozes wealth and sophistication. It feels like Christmas here. We love it here, thanks to the owners we are going to stay another ...
... about LA. Homeless people have so much luggage, they carry their life around in an abundance of suitcases and carts. No body in LA has tan lines. Everybody has an all over tan but not a glimpse of redness. Fitness. The whole of LA is fit. No doubt about it. Note to self. Must get fit like LA. One thing I won't forget is the smell. ...
... 8211; Mark being an old friend of a friend of mine. They live in Salt Lake City and they invited us to visit. They gave us such a warm welcome, it was great. They genuinely invited us to stay for a day or so and so we did! They were truly kind and hospitable, taking us out and about, giving us the whole of their beautiful basement (the size of an English large flat!!) and equipping us with information.
First off, we visited Sundance with them. ...
... Mockingbird. I made the mistake of starting the Fifty Shades of Grey trilogy! All I’m going to say is, “Oh my!” and this probably isn’t the best reading material when you’re sitting in a car with children in the back…and you’re sleeping in tight quarters for the next week! (But I can’t put it down.) Enough said!
Tomorrow’s a rest day in Salt Lake City. Looking forward to some ...
... sun like it had just been polished.
There was plenty to see and do around the City, including the Great Salt Lake and National Parks galore, but without the luxury of my own vehicle and especially at this stage in the trip, I just stayed in and around the hostel making the most of all the stories flying around in the kitchen.
It won't be long before interesting people will be nothing but a memory.

Historical Traveler Reviews Zermatt Resort & Spa Midway
Be careful when considering this property. I just returned and had several problems. First, the staff is very unexperienced and frankly unprofessional. I booked a "modified" package and was told that it would cost more money than what was confirmed when I arrived. Apparently, the person that did the booking doesn't make mistakes. It took a shouting match with the manager for them to live up to the deal I booked....I really wasn't interested in hearing how much it cost them to run the hotel. I really didn't need this aggravation on my vacation....it should have been handled professionally and it wasn't. Other issues: you can hear everyone and anyone in the hallways from your room...the walls/doors appear to be paper thin; the breakfast buffet was mediocre at best...all the berries were frozen (2 days in row).
We stayed here last February and were really disapointed. It had just opened so they had a promotion to come back within a year for a free stay. We almost didn't because of our previous experience but since we were staying in the area a "free night" sounded better than driving home an hour away.
Great for skiing with kids
We've just returned from a stay in Utah and definitely recommend the Zermatt Resort. We rented our ski equipment from the onsite Adventure Haus and had great service. The hotel shuttle went on the hour to Deer Valley (about 10-15 minutes away) and picked us up at the designated time without a hitch. Our kids loved the pool - waterfall, hot tubs, indoor/outdoor pool. We were so tired we just ate onsite and the food was also very good. The staff was extremely helpful and friendly and were obviously working hard to make our stay pleasant. It was a very good place to stay with kids and a good value.
My family and I always take a winter vacation to Utah and stay in Park City. This year we stumbled on Zermatt via the website. The property was beautiful, the location was peaceful. I was worried at first about the distance from Park City, but with the complimentary shuttle my family and I were able to easily access Park City. The concierge was able to recommend some great local restaurants. The one site restaurants were also amazing. Starbucks and fresh pastries from the bakery were a welcomed start to the morning. I have never met a more friendly staff that was willing to help me out anywhere I have stayed. The pool is AWSOME!! It is an indoor- outdoor combine and the kids LOVED IT!! My husband was able to use the fitness center --- they have personal trainers on site. This really is the most incredible resort I have ever stayed at. We will be back for years to come!!
Europe in Utah!!!
Beautiful Resort!!! I have been all over Europe and Zermatt Resort is authentic as anything in Switzerland. The rooms were beautiful, new, clean and quiet. The pools, wellness center, day spa indoor tennis was an absolute blast! The details on the buildings and interiors are amazing, there are hand paintings everywhere you look. I came for a conference and everyone in our group was blown away. I saw a few negative reviews and I noticed they were from Utah, must be the lack of culture and knowledge that Utah is known for because I never heard one negative comment. Zermatt is perfect for families, couples, groups or anyone. We will defiantly be back!!!
I stayed at the Zermatt for several days during the month of September. I was very disappointed with the quality of the amenities and the service provided by staff. For a new property, I was surprised at the lack of attention to detail. First, I could not fully open my bathroom door as it hit the toilet, so I had to squeeze in and out of the bathroom. Bags of dirty linens were left in the hallways. My room was also never cleaned and when I contacted the front desk, I was told that housekeeping was first focusing on new arrivals and that my room would be cleaned later that day, which did not happen. Also, the walls are paper thin as indicated by a previous reviewer, so noise from adjacent rooms can be a problem.
Recently stayed at the Zermatt for an annual conference which normally is held at the Homestead. If you want a quiet mountain setting the Zermatt is not it. The biggest concern to me was the bright lights. They lighting inside and out is so bright you can not even see the stars. There are numerous natural hot pods on the property which are now fenced off with red lighting inside the pods. There are cement paths throughout the property and cement parking lots and cement everything. Not much natural landscaping left. The resort itself has this faux swiss design which basically covers up a big cement buidling which could be a holiday inn in swiss. Plus there are huge HVAC units throughout the property which are extremely loud all the time which takes away from the quiet serene enviroment expected in the mountains.
had a great time, stayed 10 days, people are friendly and helpful.
Just returned from Zermatt. We have family in the area but always stay in a hotel when we visit. Zermatt is a great alternative to the iconic Homestead across the street. While the Homestead has declined in most every category it was refreshing to stay at a new and beautiful property with a refreshing, service oriented approach to its customers. Check in was great (even got an upgrade), speacl requests noted and honored. The rooms are beautiful, if a bit small. The buildings and grounds are interesting architecturally. My son loved the indoor/outdoor combo pool. The setting is gorgeous. While the property is not perfect it is clearly the best alternative in this beautiful part of Utah. Keep up the good work.
Zermatt is Beautiful!
Fun international feel. Exceeded our expectations. Wonderful new resort. Everything is NEW! Beautiful mountain location. Great attention to detail. We stayed in the villas with beautiful views, a big flat screen t.v., fireplace, and awesome kitchenette. We'll visit again.
