Venue Features
The Scene:
The Washington School House is an iconic historic landmark located in Park City, Utah. After the completion of a total interior renovation (think gutted to the studs), this fabulously preserved 1889 limestone gem reopened in December 2011. The concept? Simple, really. To provide a level of chic sophistication to a discerning traveler that is outside the box. This one-of-kind discriminating attitude applies to everything – down to those aforementioned studs. The building is fantastic. We made it a little more fantastic by terracing an outdoor pool/spa into the hillside. And let’s talk about the location. In the heart of historic Park City, basking in mountain-urban swank of remarkable dining, shopping and après-ski all within blocks.
Design:
The design of the twelve suites and rooms – unrivaled. The finishes? Exceptional. We particularly LOVE the reclaimed oak barn wood floors, locally quarried Utah quartzite, and mountain ice-white marble in the baths. The furnishings you ask? We have curated a collection of European antiques, vintage modern paintings, crystal chandeliers, silver flatware and serving pieces and… took a little time to create a few custom pieces of our own. We might have to pry you out of your room to get you on the mountain. (Don’t worry, it’s an empty threat. We can’t really bring ourselves to leave, either.) We do, however, expect you to relax. And enjoy. Our staff is prepared to exceed your expectations. Our chef has crafted a menu featuring a modern and organic approach to classic American fare. Breakfast is unavoidable. Après-ski fare fireside in our chic ski lounge is nearly mandatory. Our ski valet is at your service. Prepare to be delighted.
Standout Venue Features:
Let's start with our favorites. Heated pool and spa tucked into the hillside surrounded by aspens, spruce and boulders. Outdoor fire – a steel Olympic torch from the 2002 Winter Olympics in Park City. Chic ski lounge exclusive to hotel guests. Private chef. Private dining. Private antique and art collection. All so wonderfully… private. Hearty mountain breakfast and fabulous apres-ski fare – complimentary of course. Ski valet. In-room massage. 24-hour concierge. In-house lift ticket purchase. Oh, and our Apothecary Boutique – exquisite original selections exclusively for our guests. (Though we may have kept a few samples for ourselves.) Check out the custom silk scarves designed for our hotel by New York Designer Jonathan Cohen and save room in your luggage for the rest. And, some things that aren’t in your room but there for the asking Outdoor/Sport Guides by Arrangement (for the road less travelled) Cars by arrangement in and about Park City iPads (loaded with great movies) iPods (loaded with epic music)
Extra Perks:
Start your day with our Signature Hearty Mountain Breakfast served on site by our private chef; take advantage of full meeting services for up to 24 in either our Living Room or Chic Ski Lounge featuring state-of-the-art A/V equipment, complimentary wireless Internet access and dedicated meeting staff; enjoy gourmet pack lunches or private dining by the pool or in house; indulge in customized spa treatments and fill the remainder of your day with your choice of Park City’s premier activities, customized to match your objectives and planned by the WSH Group Event Team. Offering complete event planning services, the team is at your disposal to provide The Ultimate Retreat.

Washington School House Hotel, Park Avenue, Park City, UT, United States

Pack up all your chunky knit sweaters and snow gear because you and your squad aren’t going to want to miss a trip to the slopes this year!  This 1889 small town schoolhouse has been gutted and renovated to the gills.  Expect lots of airy white space, bright sunlight, reclaimed wood floors, and beds so comfy it’s like you’re sleeping in a cloud.  We’d say this is the perfect girls trip for the skiing and snowboarding set, but you might not even want to leave the hotel!

The Report

Calling all students! Put your pencils down and escape to a schoolhouse where you won't be tested on anything but your relaxation and drinking skills. No we are not talking about college, we are talking about this stunning downtown Park City boutique hotel and iconic historic landmark. Washington Schoolhouse was built as a school in 1889 and has now graduated to a new level of luxury. After the completion of a total interior renovation (think gutted to the studs), this fabulously preserved 1889 limestone gem reopened in December 2011.  There are twelve spectacular rooms/suites for you and your crew to rest your heads at night, reclaimed oak barn wood floors and mountain ice-white marble in the baths. Historic living space with 16ft ceilings, roaring fires, chic ski lounge, heated pool, wine, trees and stars. This is not like any school we have ever been to.

The furnishings you ask? The schoolhouse has a curated collection of European antiques, vintage modern paintings, crystal chandeliers, silver flatware and serving pieces. They even took a little time to create a few custom pieces of their own. You really won't need to do much decorating for an event here. Just bring your trapper keepers, pencil pouches and super chic party dress.

HOW WILL MY GUESTS GET HERE?: Located in the heart of breathtaking Park City, Utah, just 35 minutes from Salt Lake City International Airport.
