Washington School House Review

Opened at the end of 2011 in the heart of Park City, Washington School House is a spectacular boutique hotel set in one of the country's oldest school houses, a National Historic Registry landmark. The hotel maintains the historical integrity of the building but has completely overhauled the interior to feature a magnificent common living room and 12 breathtaking rooms and suites. Everything about this place exudes luxury, from the Pratesi linens and Molton Brown bath products in the guest rooms to the 10-foot, antique French opera-house mirror in the living room. Each guest room is unique, but many feature 16-foot ceilings and nine-foot schoolhouse windows, ensuring they feel spacious and bright. Floors are made from repurposed oak barn wood, bathrooms are marble with heated floors and walk-in showers, and furnishings are a careful mix of period antiques. At the back of the property, a heated pool and hot tub are cut into the hillside and surrounded by blue aspen and spruce trees. Situated just above Park City's Main Street, the hotel offers immediate access to the best dining, shopping, and entertainment in town and is also just a few hundred yards from the town's ski lift. That means you can practically ski to the front door—hence the presence of a ski valet and guests-only après-ski lounge. A hearty mountain breakfast is included in the rates, as are Wi-Fi access and après-ski nibbles.
