Good location right in the middle of town.  Misleading to say this is ski-in/ski-out as there is a looooong run-out to get back to the resort and the first lift up could equally be called a traverse.

The property itself is one notch below a typical Marriott.  Not bad if you know what to expect.  The worst part is that they skimp on housekeeping at this property and their Mountainside property so that 3 days/wk. when people are checking in and checking out, there are bags of dirty laundry, and trash in the halls along with the ugly cleaning carts everywhere.  

This ain't no Four Seasons.

I can not believe someone bitched that there was no hotel bar or restaurant. The resort sits on Main Street with about 75 restaurants and bars in a six or seven block area, with free old style tram up and down the street all day and night. at least six restaurants within 50 yards of the facility. The resort is great, lots of activities for kids and adults. The location is the best feature, at the end of Main St. walk out your door and you have all of Park City before you. The staff is very attentive. The only fault I found were the parking lot Nazis who were obviously not happy in their chosen professon)  (not all, one was helpful) One guy complained three times that he could not see my permit on the dashboard and to move it to a more obvious location. I put in on the visor as it kept falling off when I drove. Ended up with a ticket issued in the middle of the night, as the guy did not see it. It was quashed by the helpful guy, who looked at where I had originally placed it said it was totally visible. Oh well. Fourth visit to the location, loved it each time.

We stayed at Marriott Summit Watch, June 2012.  We had unit 4311 and 4312, which are joining.  The larger unit had living room/ kitchen, master bedroom with king bed, jetted tub and bathroom as well as washer/dryer.  There is pull down sofa bed in living room.  The smaller unit had pull down sofa bed, king bed and mini kitchen (micro and refrig) and bath.  Everything was clean.  Check in was quick and friendly. The concierge was ready and willing to help.    The location is right is town within easy walk of shops and restaurants. They offer many activities for children.  The downside is that there is no balcony, which we enjoy. There is some seating in the plaza area.   This was our 3rd or 4th stay at Marriott Summit Watch and would return again.

We stayed in one of the (massive) one-bedroom suites for a family of four.  At the price a tremendous value.  

The suite has a big entryway designed for safe shedding and storage of wet ski gear and apparel.

A full kitchen and full-sized dining area, a very spacious living area with a queen-sized pull-out and two daybeds which can easily take a shorter person on a sleeping bag or lines.  The bedroom with king-size bed is fully separated and has its own jacuzzi bath and vanity with sink, adjacent to a 3/4ths bath (shower, toilet, vanity with sink) with its own separate doors communicating both with the bedroom and the main area.  It's a bit eccentric for the bedroom to have a private jacuzzi and sink and not its own toilet, but tolerable.  

As another poster noted, you MUST go to Albertsons (not walking distance, or even close) to stock up the kitchen.  The store off the lobby has a VERY partial selection of groceries with some odd merchandizing (pasta and pasta sauce?  yes; bread?  no), and there's no more full-stock grocer or convenience store nearby.

Each of the two rooms in the suites has a widescreen LCD and a DVD player; no special hotel pay-per-view, etc.  Hotel provides free WiFi which was quite speedy when we used it; no wired broadband though for people who like to use Hulu or Netflix online for travel entertainment.

There's a very big and nice fitness center in the basement, and a big "Activity Center" which we used heavily, both for its basic amenities (indoor-outdoor heated pool, three jacuzzis, free Wii and games) and for the many different evening kids activities operated by the property.

The location at the base of Main Street is great.  Right across from the Town Lift of PCMR, and a 2-7 minute walk to pretty much any of the nice restaurants in town.  (A few of the better-regarded restaurants in town are within 90 seconds: Mustang, Easy Street, Jean-Louis, Zoom, along with many other very-nearby spots.)

While I get the impression that Summit Watch mostly does business as a conventional hotel, it is set up as a time share and as such has a few limitations -- no room service or lobby restaurant (or even continental breakfast or coffee), and limited bell service, although there was a bellman to help when we arrived (but not when we checked out).  Front desk was very helpful with everything we requested and needed.

Off-season and shoulder-season rates are very attractive.  Peak rates are high in absolute terms, but still a great value by Park City standards.

I stayed here during Sundance. The room I had was really really nice - it was basically a small apartment with washer dryer, living room, big bathtub, fireplace, and a small bedroom that was separated by a door. The location can't be beat - you're right at the foot of Main Street.

While the room was spacious, I wasn't blown away by the fixtures, linens, or other amenities in the room.

I have to believe that I could have done better for the price. That being said, it was a nice place to stay and about what I expected.

If you're paying for one's Sundance travel accommodation, book them at the Marriott Summit Watch, the most reasonable, desirable place to stay.

This is not a real "hotel" --no room service, no kitchen (you need to stock up at Albertson). The rooms are usually booked by the 2nd week of December, so you need to act fast. If not, you have to struggle, checking Craig's list and hoping that someone wants to rent out their time share at the Marriott's Summit Watch. A 1 bedroom suite and studio (some people would advertise it as (2) bedrooms) usually goes for $4K for a week, and if you break it down, it's about $300 a night/room --not bad. If you're lucky to book a room, I think it's around $400/night, which is pricey but not as expensive as the Stein Ericksen ($700/night est) and the Sky Lodge on Main Street ($1500/night est).

As Charles H noted, you are in the area where everything happens, and if not, the bus is nearby, and so you save money on transportation because the airport ground transportation is not cheap ($70 round trip (the cheapest--shuttle shared van) from SLC to Park City). Most of the interviews and parties are on Main Street. Sundance always provide the talents with car services for the premiere date -best not to have your guests stay more than 2 nights.

Marriot Summit Watch is big -lots of rooms; easy to get lost. It annoyed me that the rooms did not match up to the floors. For example, if you're in 4103, you could be on the 3rd floor and not on the 4th. The rooms are decent. You have a fireplace, full kitchen for the 1 bedroom suites. The master bathroom is bigger than my kitchen...but that's not saying much. The studios come with a microwave only.

If you do rent someone's time share out, you'll need to schedule and pay for house cleaning (think it was around $30-40).

I dealt with Vincent Wincelowicz when I was there and got excellent service. He was very accommodating.  

Oh, since it's not a "normal" hotel, your guests can't charge that much to the room...  :p

Besides being in Park City which in itself is awesome, the Marriott  was mediocre.

Clean, yes!  Very Clean!

Cheaply built, oh yeah------very cheaply built.  You can hear every word the folks in the other rooms whisper.  And I mean whisper.  The folks next to us, were having a divorce conversation.  It was terrible to listen too.  Had to leave our room.  Made us not want to go back because we didnt want to hear their conversations and we didnt want them hearing ours.

No restaurant/bar to go to in the hotel, had to leave to get bite to eat or something to drink.  INconvenient considering the conversation we had to endure that morning.

As for perks, ski lift is literally right outside the door.  You walk out sit down and are whisked to the top of the mountain for your first run.  Not bad at all in that light!

This was the second time that I have stayed here and I came to realize that it's probably the best hotel to stay at in Park City.  Downtown is right there with a ton of bars and restaurants.  There are 2 big fire pits outside of the hotel where you can sit drink and have a good time.  The location is perfect and the staff is friendly.

We got a super duper deal here and I was a little skeptical at first but the moment we stepped through the front door I knew I was in for a treat! Staff was extremely accommodating, we got in two hours before check in and they were able to get us a room right away. Room was clean and huge. We asked for a view and got an awesome one of the hill and up main street.

Only one complaint, which isn't the hotels fault.. there are two bars right down stairs and it gets quite noisy at night. Next time we would probably request a room not right on top of main street.

It was of season so the rate was cheap; little over $100/night.  Parking was free.  

The rooms were very spacious and nice.  The heater did not work the first two days so the room was bit chilly.  The fireplace doesn't get very hot.  

I did the Temple Square Tour which was definitely worth the $15 to not have to drive.  The location is great; near many shops and eateries.  

Overall, it was a nice place not nothing spectacular.  I requested late check-out but was "asked" to donate $10/hour to a non-profit org.  I decided to pass and just check-out at 10 AM.

I would definitely stay here again.  The pool area and hot tub area are enough for me to love!  You can check out games and puzzles in the recreational area.  There are also tons of things for kids to do in here.  I recommend bring flip-flops because the stones are not comfortable to get to the pool/hot tub area and its a bit cold (if your here in the winter months).

The only downside is the room walls are paper thin and the light that comes from under the door is a huge amount when the lights are out.  However, this is not enough to keep me away.

The town lift is so close and it is very convenient, free parking as well (at least pre-season is).  This place is fantastic!

Although it registers as a 2 1/2 star hotel on hotwire, i think it is just because its compared to the hotels where you get a jacuzzi and such on your deck, this is more like a 3 1/2  star hotel!

We picked this place for our timeshare program and the kids is having a blast.  The place is located right on the strip so restaurant are within walking distance.  There is an activity center as well with things for kids to do everyday, granted sometime my kids were the only participants.  the unit we have is a bit small, but it is nice and cozy enough for a family of 4.  The internet is free which is great and the concierge leaves a VM everyday on the phone to let you know what activities are available.  The only things I would say negative about this place is that the main lobby is extremely small with virtually nothing.  Kids are already asking to come back for more

Hotel was generally nice and on par with other Marriotts. The humidifiers provided to every room are moldy and nasty and filled with old water. The big problem I had is that there are huge parking issues at this hotel though. We had four room but they would only give us two spots. How is that supposed to work when there is no public parking except if you walk 15 minutes away? We have kids in car seats! When I spoke to Chris he was not only unhelpful but short with me. If the hotel staff is rude and unaccommodating why not stay somewhere else?

Great place to stay!! Would return in a heart beat. The location cannot be beat if you want to enjoy the town and nightlife. All the shops on main street are easily accessible and some of the best restaurants in park city are located within walking distance.
Loved the in suite washer and dryer, electric ignite fireplace, and is very accessible to anywhere in park city. Staff was very helpful.
Lastly there is a great hiking trail right outside your door.

Wanted a romantic getaway for my engagement weekend so we decided on a nice romantic night in PC. I have to admit for the price you pay during "mud season" a 4:00 check in and a 10:00 am check out is a bit silly. The hotel is laid out rather confusing and room numbers make absolute no sense. The staff was nice and no complaints there but the room was kind of tacky looking and the first thing we noticed was a spider on the ceiling... The bathroom wasn't very clean and 3 miss colored screws in the lighting fixture really bothered me. The worst thing about this hotel is the walls are paper thin and I could hear everything going on in the room next to us which makes me feel worse for my neighbors than it does me. The activity center was doing free beer at the pool that night which was very nice and there are 3 semi private hot tubs which makes it nice to relax in. I would probably stay at mountainside if I were to do it again.

This is a beautiful condo with great amenities.  The pool indoor outdoor pool is awesome.  Fitness center was outstanding for a condo/hotel.  Treadmills had T.V's! The security was a little over the top for a ski town and there are no fans in the bathrooms which I thought was strange.

So disappointed. Traded through DRI. No room service for the entire week. Noisy beyond belief. So bright the "blinds" don't even marginally shut out the light. Sinks in bathroom don't drain. And when you ask for service the first question is "Are you an owner" and apparently if the answer is yes they know they don't have to provide further service.

Spacious, clean, and great location! We had a 3 room unit with full kitchen and fire place. You do need to request a room clean if you want one and pay an additional fee for it, but it really didn't bother us. We got to watch the patriots in the hot tub for Sunday night football and they had an adult beer social at the same time. It was a nice welcome to town! There are tons of events going on for kids (we didn't bring ours this time), and things for non-skiers to do if the weather is bad. One day they offered a trip to the Olympic park, one to SLC, and another day that we were all a little sour we missed they were offering a trip to some hot springs to go swimming! The staff was very friendly and accommodating. I loved getting the morning message from the concierge with the weather and snow report- nice touch!

The pictures here and on Marriotts page do not do this place justice. I was very hesitant to pay up to stay here just because of the pictures. After looking at the room square footage, we did it. It is pricey and it isn't truly a ski in ski out. There is a ski bridge across the way with a lift also. Point is you do have a walk. However, it is a very nice room with lots of amenities.  The staff is wonderful and I do recommend this property for a Park City vacation.

Stayed here several times on ski trips.  Most recently in March 2015.  The staff is very friendly and helpful.  The room was immaculate.   I was very pleased.  The hot tub and pool are good and there are many activities for the kids.  The location is right near the bridge for the town lift and there are ski rental shops within steps of the hotel.  I'm an owner at other Marriott timeshare locations and I have to say that this one is really excellent.  Highly recommend!!

Great location!  Right next to where they hold the Park Silly Market every summer.  There is a chair lift right by it too.

My kids love it here because they have a lot of fun activities!  Candy sushi, free movies in the owners lounge with popcorn, movies that you watch while in the pool, etc.

Game room with chess board, wii, xbox, air hockey table, etc.

Rooms are nice, clean, and spacious.  Nice kitchen area.  4 stars instead of 5 because I wish they had slightly more counter space.

Washer and dryers in the rooms where you have a larger kitchen area then just a kitchenette in the room itself.

Super happy with the 1 bedroom (HUGE) and service.  Great location, views, decor, fireplace,   Room was immaculate.  Sheets were soft.  Double sink was handy.  We stayed here in October and the price was super reasonable.

Hard not to love this location.  The rooms are about as comfortable as you can find as well.  The front desk staff needs some work, but overall a great stay.
