Upon completion, the St. Regis Deer Crest Resort and Residences will be the first globally recognized hotel brand to enter the Deer Valley lodging market.  The St. Regis is officially scheduled to open Oct. 1, 2009 according to the Starwood Hotels website.  An earlier press release published February 22, 2005 announced the luxury Deer Valley lodging resort would break ground in the near future with the grand opening sometime in the fall of 2007.  The project seemed to grind to a halt during the summer of 2007 but gradually picked up its pace through the end of 2007 – beginning of 2008.  Although hard to believe, the project is actually nearing completion as can be seen in the featured image.

The branded resort will feature two buildings linked by a funicular tram.  The lower Snow Park building is located just steps from the Deer Valley Snow Park Lodge, allowing visitors easy access via lower Deer Valley.  The funicular tram will shuttle guests 500 feet uphill in only 90 seconds to the main Deer Crest building situated just off the Deer Hollow ski run for premier slope side ski access.  The main Deer Crest building will host the Hotel’s amenities, residences and Hotel-Condominiums.  The outdoor amenities will make full use of the slope side location.  The ski beach with its chaise lounges and great sun exposure provides a European inspired ski scene where socializing, lounging and dining are an integral part of the mountain experience.

The St. Regis Deer Crest is a 10 floor development featuring 67 condo hotel suites, 26 private residences, and 180 luxury hotel rooms.  The facility will also house the 14,000 -square foot spa and fitness center, infinity edge pool, decks and an area with fire pits.  The hotel will also feature two new Deer Valley restaurant options, will offer room service, and private butlers will be available.
