The St. Regis Deer Crest Utah

Frequently pictures speak louder than words. However, in the case of the St. Regis Deer Crest, even pictures are inadequate in describing the intimate luxury that awaits you. I spent three delightful days exploring every nook and cranny of this spacious mountain retreat and cozying up to the fire, even when the temperature outside didn’t warrant it.

There is something to tempt everyone at the St. Regis Deer Crest. Whether it’s a day of pampering in one of the eleven treatment rooms at the 14,000 square foot world-class Reméde Spa…

A getaway in the family suite with ski-in ski-out access to Deer Valley Resort, the #1 ski resort in North America four years running…

Or an unforgettable meal at the J & G Grill, where the food and beverage is “Local in content, global in reach.” There truly is something for everyone at the St. Regis.
Throughout my stay one common thread of conversation with other guests was how amazingly delicious (and affordable) the dishes at the J & G Grill were. Every single dish was scrumptious. In fact, I was sorely disappointed that I couldn’t try everything on the menu. Here are a few delectable dishes and drinks I recommend when you go for lunch:

St. Regis Deer Crest’s signature Bloody Mary, 7-4-5-2.
(7452=The elevation of the J & G Grill)

Shepherd Valley Goat Cheese Custard, Sweet and Sour Beets, Toasted Pistachios-$12
(Truffle Pizza in the background)

Steamed Shrimp Salad, Tender Greens, Avocado, Champagne Dressing-$15

High Star Farms Heirloom Tomato Gizpacho-$10

The food is divine and well worth the stay alone. However, what really sets St. Regis Deer Crest apart from other establishments, and what transformed me from a guest to a raving fan wanting to promote them to everyone I meet, were the stellar people who work there. These are people passionate about what they do and that passion is contagious. They took time with me during my stay to ensure I felt welcome and comfortable. They are people who touch the lives and make a difference for every guest they meet. People like Restaurant who spent time answering questions and led us around as we explored the indoor and outdoor dining facilities

Difference makers like who walked me through the wine vault with its 4000+ sommelier-chosen bottles of wine and eloquently likened being in the room, with its plush red and black leather seats and dark woods, to “Living in a glass of merlot.” He is a well spoken and informed young man who patiently spent time answering my numerous questions regarding the history behind, and various ingredients in, the assorted dishes I was eating, the St. Regis, Deer Valley, and wine pairings.

Chef is the master behind the “World’s Best melt-in-your-mouth savor-the-taste-as-long-as-possible steak” I have ever eaten. He knows his clientele and painstakingly chooses the best aged meat cuts from the best steakhouses and fresh garden ingredients from various local vendors.

He proved knowledgeable not only in the services and amenities offered by the hotel, but in the history of Park City, the ski areas, good fly-fishing spots and mountain biking trails, and offered great advice on what tasty dishes we HAD to try at the grill!
