Sep. 24, 2009--Three lodging establishments in Park City and Salt Lake City have entered new management arrangements.
The Lodges at Deer Valley and its affiliated property, the Silver Baron Lodge, will be managed this winter by Deer Valley Resort Lodging and Reservations. The resort set up that department to handle accommodations after several Park City property management companies, most notably Deer Valley Lodging, failed to make required end-of-season payments last spring to owners of individual condominiums and homes in various developments.
"The Lodges and Silver Baron offer some of our largest meeting and convention space at Deer Valley," said Dirk Beal, Deer Valley Resort director of sales, noting the resort will provide banquet and catering services at the properties. Both previously were managed by Deer Valley Lodging.
The Lodges at Deer Valley has one-, two- and three-bedroom condos, and 7,000 square feet of meeting space in five rooms. The Silver Baron has 50 two- and three-bedroom units plus 3,500 square feet of meeting space, he added.
Other properties now being managed by Deer Valley Resort Lodging and Reservations are the Trail's End Lodge, The Deer Valley Club, Stag Lodge, Shooting Star and Black Diamond Lodge. Another 120 independent lodging units also are in its portfolio, which Beal said includes almost 350 units overall.
In Salt Lake City, the newly renovated Garden Inn at Salt City Plaza, 171 W. 500 South, has become part
of the Best Western International chain.
Owned by Jeff Stockert, the hotel has 85 guest rooms and five suites. It targets both business and leisure travelers, offering free printing services, wireless high-speed Internet access in public areas, shuttle service to and from Salt Lake City International Airport, a complimentary breakfast and other amenities, a Best Western news release said.
Rates start at $119 per night. Packages are available.
Best Western has 4,000 independently owned and operated hotels in 80 countries and territories, housing 400,000 people nightly.
