This week’s Resort Report features a charming summer escape in Salt Lake City, an award-winning airport hotel and a sneak peek into the spa operation at a world-class desert destination.
Charming Utah Summer Stay
A stay in Salt Lake coupled with an Olympic-sized experience is best had at the Washington School House Hotel. The hotel, which opened in December 2011, is offering their Gold Medal Adventure Package from June 15th through September 17th. Probably one of the most unique hotels in the Salt lake City area, Washington School House was originally one of three schoolhouses built in Park City in 1898. The building was converted to a bed and breakfast in 1984, and completely stripped and refinished during an extensive remodel that concluded in December 2011. Boasting 12 total rooms, the various accommodations within the hotel are unique, yet harness all the amenities one might expect from a top-notch boutique operation.
