The 212-room Grand Summit Hotel in Canyons Village, part of Park City Mountain Resort in Utah, is undergoing a $15 million renovation this spring and then will be reflagged as a RockResorts property. The work, which will close the hotel from April 17 through mid-summer, aims to upgrade the premises to the luxury level.
 
"We couldn't be more excited to bring the interior of the Grand Summit Hotel up to world-class-resort caliber," said Jim Dullanty, president of the Grand Summit Homeowner's Association. "This transformation will undoubtedly elevate the experience for all of Grand Summit Hotel's guests as well as the unit owners themselves."
 
All 212 suites will receive new interior finishes, as well as new furniture and soft goods in greens, coppers and golden-tans; all-new appliances will be brought in, and new technology will include headboards with power outlets, USB ports and reading lights. The lobby and front desk also will be redone, as will the spa, the café and the general store. All 15,000 square feet of conference space will be refreshed.
 
When the project is done, the Grand Summit Hotel will be flagged as a RockResort, which is a division of Vail Resorts, the owner of Park City Mountain Resort.
 
"We are thrilled to add Grand Summit to the RockResorts collection," said Ron Neville, Vail Resorts' vice president of hospitality. "The RockResorts brand represents the hallmark of casually elegant properties with exceptional service in our mountain-resort locations. We're looking forward to continuing to deliver extraordinary service and experiences to our guests at the Grand Summit."
