Venue Love: Washington School House Tour


Recently, I was fortunate enough to tour the historic Washington School House Hotel in Park City, Utah - and, boy, was it GORGEOUS!  Lucky for you, I got photos from the tour and I can share the beauty and design amazing-ness that this hotel boasts!  Check it out! angela-howard-park-city-hotel-cc Nestled in the heart of downtown Park City, Utah, the Washington School House stands out with its pretty limestone facade and original architectural elements.  SO stunning! angela-howard-park-city-hotel-cc2 Although the owners had the property's designers keep the historic feel in mind, they also added a ton of modern and contemporary touches - like this elegant and stiking signage.  It blends perfectly, don't you think? angela-howard-park-city-hotel-cc3 angela-howard-park-city-hotel-cc4 Off to the side of the entryway is this FABULOUS dining room where they serve gourmet made-to-order breakfasts as well as mouth-watering apres-ski appetizers (included with your accommodations, of course) that are prepared by their private chef, Ernesto Rocha, who also happens to be the head chef at the critically acclaimed Zoom restaurant in Park City.  They also allow outside catering for private events and weddings and we here at Culinary Crafts are SO excited to offer catering for those intimate events!!! angela-howard-park-city-hotel-cc5 angela-howard-park-city-hotel-cc6 Remember the made-to-order breakfast I mentioned earlier?  Well, we got to taste some of the breakfast offerings they have and it was DELICIOUS!  They also have fantastic pastry chef who made many to-die-for confections, but my favorite was a seriously AMAZING strawberry rhubarb coffee cake.  So yummy. angela-howard-park-city-hotel-cc7 Now, onto the rest of t!  This room was my favorite with 16 foot ceilings and so much natural light.  Plus, check out the bathroom and that fantastic claw-footed tub!  Love it! angela-howard-park-city-hotel-cc8 One of the other things I love about this hotel is their rooftop pool.  It was gorgeous and well-appointed, plus you can people-watch and feel like you are a part of the city while relaxin' pool-side. angela-howard-park-city-hotel-cc9 Lastly, they have this FANTASTIC lounge that would be perfect for private parties and events!  It is cozy and inviting and I LOVED the details!  Exposed beams? Check! White washed brick? Check!  Fabulous, yet comfy, furniture? Check!  A boutique with AWESOME gifties?  Check plus! angela-howard-park-city-hotel-cc10 The Washington School House is such a gem and I LOVED every minute of the tour.  They have taken so much care to curate the art, furniture, and look of the place that you just feel extremely special having a stay there.  Plus, it would be AMAZING for a small wedding, private party, corporate event, and so much more!  They offer a 'buy-out' so you can get the hotel all to yourself and your guests - which I love for a wedding weekend or family holiday retreat!  Such a great addition to Park City and we can't wait to see the fabulous events to be had there!  Happy dreaming, everyone!
