Sochi Winter Olympic Athletes with Utah ties

Posted in Local News, Park City Lodging | No Comments »

If Utah were competing as its own country, it would have finished 10th in the overall medal count. Fourteen of team USA’s 28 medals were won by athletes with Utah ties. Six of these medals were won by Park City Locals.

Twenty three of the USA’s winter athletes attend school at Westminster College located in Salt Lake City. USSA athletes receive free tuition to attend Utah’s only private liberal arts college. According to Westminster media spokesperson, Arikka Von,”Westminster has had an ongoing nine- year-long partnership with the USSA offering tuition, grant programs, and other scholarship services to help athletes pursue higher education. “

It’s no surprise that the “Greatest Snow on Earth” is a hot bed for winter training. After hosting the 2002 Winter Olympics Salt Lake and Park City Training facilities are busier than ever.  Park City is home to the USSA headquarters and training facility where team USA winter athletes can train for free with personalized coaching staff and state of the art equipment.

Congratulations to all of our athletes and a big thank you for representing our Country, State, and town. Your heroes to us all. You may not have noticed but Park City Lodging is a proud sponsor of the US bobsled team. Our logo raced alongside our boys on the track under the BMW badge. Cheers.

Celebrate 30 years with us this ski season!

Posted in Local News, Media, Uncategorized | No Comments »

Park City Lodging, Inc. teamThis year, we’re celebrating our 30th anniversary, and passing our excitement along to our customers! We’ve been helping visitors to Park City, Utah plan their perfect vacation for 30 years, and in conjunction with our anniversary, we’re proud to have been named the “Best Property Management Company” in Park City in the Readers Choice Awards put on by the Park Record.

Park City Lodging, Inc.’s story begins in 1984 when Rhonda Sideris, president and founder of Park City Lodging, Inc. (formerly R&R Properties), discovered a need for quality vacation rental management in Park City’s growing resort community. She worked by herself in that first year, caring for and renting out a small number of properties in the area. When her inventory ballooned to nearly 20 homes she hired 3 new employees to be in charge of maintenance, accounting, and housekeeping. 30 years later, she manages a team of 70 people during high-season winter months.

Over the years, Park City Lodging, Inc. has filled needs in many property niches–from selling real estate and managing long-term rentals, to providing vacation rental management services throughout all of greater Park City. Ten years ago, Park City Lodging, Inc. made the decision to streamline our business offerings both in scope and geography. Currently, we provide management for vacation rentals, second home owners and homeonwer’s associations in Park City’s three resort areas: Canyons, Deer Valley, and Park City Mountain. “I wanted to be the very best vacation rental management company in town, so I had to let go of a few things,” says Sideris.

Focusing on these three niches within the resort areas has led Park City Lodging, Inc. to the number one place we’re in today. “People believe in us, they trust us,” says Sideris, “I have an owner who has been with me for 29 years, and guests who have been staying with us equally as long.” That’s something our team is very proud of, and we look forward to creating even more memorable mountain vacations for Park City visitors in the years to come.

Stay tuned for the announcement of our anniversary packages, and thank you for your continued support!

Summer in Park City

Posted in Events in Park City, Uncategorized | No Comments »

Park City is widely known as a winter vacation destination because of our three world-class ski resort areas, the Sundance Film Festival, and the town’s Olympic legacy. What’s not as widely known about our quaint mountain town is that summers here are just as spectacular. There’s no shortage of live music, food and wine events, and art festivals to be enjoyed. Park City locals like to say,”I moved to Park City for the winters, but I stayed because of the summers.”

Whether you want to experience nature at it’s finest while hiking, mountain biking, fly-fishing, rock climbing, and paddleboarding; or revel in Park City’s cultural offerings during Savor the Summit, The Kimball Arts Festival, the Park City Food and Wine Classic, or any number of weekly events that take place on Main Street, the town has something for everyone.

Utah Olympic Park offers guests a one-of-a-kind experience that can’t be found anywhere else in the mountain west. Freestyle ski jump performances by Olympic athletes and Olympic hopefuls are performed on a weekly basis, and guests can enjoy comet bobsled rides down the Olympic Bobsled course year-round.

Locals and visitors look forward to Park City’s Silly Market on Main St. each Sunday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. This open-air market provides local food, arts, crafts and a petite farmers market. We love the build-your-own Bloody Mary Bar, delicious corn on the cob, and gourmet grilled cheese stand are some of our favorite offerings. The Silly Market is a zero-waste, eco-friendly event. Last summer, the market resulted in only 16 bags of trash sent to the landfill for the entire season.

Much like the dining scene in Park City, the music scene rivals that of many large cities–especially in the summer months. The Deer Valley Music Festival plays host to a number of well-known performers. This year Steve Martin, the Indigo Girls, and many others will play during the festival, among others. Park City Lodging, Inc. guests get a special rate on DVMF tickets, click here for more information. The St. Regis Big Stars, Bright Nights concert series is also held at the Snow Park Amphitheater. Look forward to Jewel, One Republic, Lyle Lovett, and others performing during the series. In addition to paid concerts, Deer Valley hosts the Grand Valley Bank Free Community Concert Series each Wednesday evening during the summer at the Snow Park Amphitheater, Canyons hosts free concerts each Saturday evening starting July 20, and there are also free concerts each Thursday at Newpark Town Center starting June 20, 2013.

Want to experience the Sundance Film Festival during the summer? Avoid the mega-theaters on Friday through Sunday and join local non-profit Park City Film Series at the Library Theatre. They feature a selection from the best independent, documentary, world and local cinema. Prize giveaways and popcorn served with ‘real’ butter are a unique highlight of the film series.

Other local favorites include Friday night wine and hors d’oeuvres gallery strolls, outdoor dining on street-decks along Main Street, and Park City’s 4th of July celebration. Check our events calendar for a full list of upcoming events, or call one of our destination specialists to book a summer stay–it will be a mountain experience filled with activities and events that you’ll want to experience year after year.



Park City Lodging, Inc.’s Property Rating System

Posted in Park City Lodging, Vacation Rentals | No Comments »

1629 Lakeside, Deer Valley ResortOne of the great things about choosing a rental property for your vacation lodging is that each property is unique. This makes it easy to find a rental that is absolutely perfect for the group you’re traveling with. We know that guests have an abundance of lodging options to choose from for their vacation in Park City, and one of the best things about Park City Lodging, Inc. is that we offer guests a variety of accommodations, from hotel rooms to 6-bedroom houses that range from economy to premier, in order to fit every traveler’s taste and budget. We know that our guests are savvy, and we do everything we can do add value at every property rating level.

While the uniqueness of each property is what can make choosing a specific lodging option so fun, it can also be a source of confusion. This is why Park City Lodging, Inc. has adopted a rating system that we apply to each of the properties we manage—in order to relieve some of the confusion you might have about what exactly you can expect out of your vacation rental.

Park City Lodging, Inc. adheres to a strict quality rating standard established by a nationally recognized authority on resort quality ratings. Using a standardized rating system enhances both our guests’ and our owners’ experiences. Guests feel confident in their property choice because they know exactly what they’re getting before they arrive in Park City, and owners know that our highly-trained staff members will give them appropriate recommendations for improving their property according to industry standards.   “Owners appreciate having a set standard. There is a definition as to what each rating requires and they appreciate the fact that they’re all being treated equally,” says our Owner Services Manager, Connie Williams. “And the travel partners we work with love our rating system,” she says. “They deem it more reliable than other companies.”

Our quality rating evaluation addresses furnishings, property décor and quality. We evaluate the flooring and window treatments, the paint, updates and renovations that the kitchen and bathrooms might need, and furnishings that are starting to wear or electronics that need to be updated. We also evaluate whether artwork, lamps, and bedding has become dated.

We know that a large part of being successful in the vacation rental industry is the ability to keep our properties on-trend with amenities that travelers have grown to expect. Keeping this in mind, we reevaluate the ratings of our properties on a yearly basis, giving owners upgrade suggestions that keep their properties fresh and attractive. We know that adhering to these standards gives all of our customers—both owners and guests—confidence in choosing Park City Lodging, Inc.
