Where to Stay:
There are quite a few options when it comes to places to rest your head in Park City. You can check out a ton of them on the Sundance Film Festival Lodging page, and I have a few suggestions as well.
The Hub: Main Street – Where All the Action Goes Down
As I’ve mentioned, the center of the action goes down on Main Street. If you can book an affordable room at Park City Marriott, do it. It’s usually the official headquarters for the festival, sits right on Main Street, and is one of the most convenient Sundance hotels that I’ve seen.
Air B n B: This is also a great option. If you can find a place to stay near Main Street for a budget-friendly price, grab it immediately. Also, look for options in the Canyons Resort area and Deer Valley. Both are just a few miles away from Main Street.
Main & Sky: This luxe hotel is on Main Street as well. If you’re working with a larger budget (or if you’re looking for inspiration), take a peek at the Destination Sundance: The Fab page for the full breakdown.
Deer Valley: This is a ski resort area that sits North of Main Street that is home to ski-in, ski-out resorts, luxe spas, and great places to eat. On the affordable side, The Lodges at Deer Valley Resort is a stellar option if you can snag a room there before rates go too high. These are 1, 2, and 3-bedroom condos that have full kitchens, condos, living rooms, and the grounds are also home to The Brass Tag restaurant, which features Deer Valley-inspired brick oven cuisine. *Bonus*: There is complimentary breakfast.
Canyons Resort Area: Stay a little further outside of the main hub of Park City to save some extra bucks. For example, staying in the Canyons resort area can be a great option if you have a smaller group. It’s not cheap, but it’s cheaper than Main Street and only a few miles away from it. It also has a couple of free transportation options for getting back and forth to Main Street. There is a shuttle that operates during certain hours of the day that will take you there, and also a free city bus that stops by each resort too if you’re not in a rush.
Where We’ve Stayed:
Silverado Lodge: We loved the rustic vibe of our suite here. This Canyons area resort was cozy, had a full kitchen, two bathrooms, and fireplaces in the master bedroom and living room that were clutch when the blizzard hit during the weekend. Other than a gym, fresh coffee every morning in the lobby, and the free shuttle though, there weren’t many other amenities than that.
Silverado also sits at the bottom of the resort area, so we had to take a shuttle to the restaurant area of the resort. They do have a book of food delivery options though, which was helpful the one night we ordered in when it was snowing a bit too hard to venture out.

Sundial Lodge: This hotel has more of a modern vibe than Silverado, and it is more convenient since it sits right in the middle of all of the restaurants and the ski area. Although it’s on the smaller side, most of the one-bedroom rooms have a pull out, so if you are fine with having less space and sharing a room in a group of four, it will work. If you’re not, splurge on a suite.
The rooms have flat panel HDTVs, comfy beds, and free wi-fi, and there are also condos and suites that have kitchens and more.
