The Hyatt Escala Lodge was voted one of the top 12 hotels in North America in 2010 by Ski Magazine. It provides convenient ski in/ski out access to 4,000 acres of diverse terrain within the Canyons resort, the third largest ski and snowboard destination in the United States. The Canyons was voted top 10 ski resorts in north America in 2012. It has 176 trails, 17 lifts, two cutting edge terrain parks, six natural half pipes and a new ski beach. In summer, Canyons offers scenic gondola rides, miles of hiking and mountain biking trails, and outdoor concerts in the village center
Our unit is an amazing penthouse, the best unit in the lodge and that is why: take all the nice things you've heard about the Escala lodge and add that you will have (1) the Best location in the lodge (main building, where you find the ski valet, lobby, restaurants and have the best view), (2) duplex penthouse with double vaulted ceiling, on the 5th and 6th floor (3) most flexible configuration (3 lock offs), (4) best view. Lovely brand new 2220 Sqf three bedrooms (purchased April 2012), in a full service world class luxury hotel with great amenities. Full kitchen (fully equipped), dining area (sits at least 8 people), living room with a fire place, TV and sofa sleeper, loft with another sofa sleeper and another TV, 4 balconies with great view, (each bedroom has a fireplace, flat screen TV and a private balcony) and full size washer/dryer. The property is new, spacious and comfortable. You can share a meal with your friends in a homey environment in your condo, or go out to any of the amazing restaurants on or off property. In addition you have complete privacy as the three bedrooms have completely independent entrances. The Canyons is definitely the best place to ski and to snowboard, and the mountain is only getting better, with more amenities and new lifts. The Hyatt brand is an indication of world-class service. Again, it is the best unit in the property, penthouse, main building, double vaulted and with the best view.
We also just bought (June 2013) another 1 bedroom unit in the Escala on the 2nd floor just next to the ski services and we own couple of properties across the street at the Westgate Lodge in case you need additional space (one and two bedroom)
Keywords: Penthouse, duplex, ski-in-ski out, Three and a half bedroom, three and a half bath, can be rented as a one bedroom, two bedroom, studio with king size bed, or a studio with queen size bed, Wasatch building, main building
Owners are hospitality professionals living in Las Vegas, active outdoor family with 3 kids and a dog and a passion for travel, ski, snowboard, hiking and biking. After many years of living abroad and traveling and visiting resorts across the US, Europe, South America and Asia they found that this is the place they truly love!
Owners speak English, Portuguese, Spanish, French and Hebrew.
Owners own sveral other properties; another one bedroom in the same building at the Hyatt, and 2 other units across the street at The Westgate Lodge(one and 2 bedroom).
Location, location, location. Also, we think that this particular unit is the best at the Escala lodge and arguably the whole Canyons Resort. We also love the easy access to the mountain, the beautiful facilities and of course the fact that it is driving distance from Las Vegas.
We actually own other properties at the Canyons (this one was the last we purcahse after spending so much time at the resort this past winter 2012). We love them and we use them all depending on how many people we have in our party.
This unit is truly amazing, with nice double vaulted ceilings, great view, 4 balconies, 4 fireplace, 5 flat screen TV, 2 levels, three bedrooms and a loft with three distinct lock-offs. We can spend great times together as a family or have completely independent units with a lot of privacy. Good for families with kids at all ages or few families or couples that want to share the place. The kitchen is fully equipped with stainless steel, high-end appliances, wine coller, with a big dinning table great for entertaining.
The unit is in the Wasatch building which is the main building with the lobby, reception, restaurant, ski vallet etc. It is also the tallest building and the unit is on the tope 2 levels, and best location for going out for skiing.
