For the past 31 years, Stein Eriksen Lodge, located mid-mountain at Deer Valley Resort, has established itself as a true leader in alpine hospitality and one of the most highly respected mountain resort destinations in the world. In 2003, the Lodge was the first Utah property to be recognized with the AAA Five-Diamond rating and it first received the Forbes Five-Star award in 2008. Since then, and with several nationally branded properties coming to the Park City area, Stein Eriksen Lodge has upheld its standing as the first and only Utah property to achieve this distinction.

A carefully selected team of hospitality experts anonymously evaluates the establishments listed in the Guide, using a proprietary ratings process based on more than 750 rigorous and standardized criteria that are evaluated and updated annually. Properties must offer a level of experience appropriate to the cost, based on the quality of such items as decor, comfort, amenities and services.
