    Wednesday night might be party night (among others) for the staff, because the Thursday morning breakfast service was awful. Cooperation and understanding that this is not a full service hotel is essential to enjoying the experience, which we did. Very much. Should have brought a hangover cure for the kitchen staff. :-)

    Location, location, location. Great olde time ski lodge atmosphere if you're ready for it, but understand it's rustic, writ large. That said, this kind of time travel is perfect for the soul.

    Would liked to have had some real fruit for breakfast, bananas, strawberries, blueberries, etc, instead of the same unappetizing fruit cocktail every morning.

    The rustic atmosphere and fireplace. The evening meals with great conversation with people from all over the world.

    Kitchy place with great food and casual atmosphere, but a little short on comfort and 5-star service
    • Leisure trip
    • Family with young children
    • Twin Room with Shared Bathroom
    • Stayed 3 nights

    The shared bathroom thing is cute and all but not great at 2:00 am when you have to pee! Rooms are very small and could use better storage/organization.

    This is a kitchy place that caters to a certain clientele. Everything is just a little off, but in a fun way, so as long as you go with the right expectations it can be a great experience. The food is very good and plentiful. Atmosphere is very casual and laid-back. The staff are all very nice and eager to please, but not professionals so aren't always the most attentive or thoughtful. The location is good being on the mountain, but you have to hike or take a shuttle to get to the lifts.

    At one point the shared bathroom did not have hot water in the shower. Only one instance, however,

    Having to leave! The Lunch selections.

    It's all about location! What is so great about the Peruvian Lodge is its proximity to Alta ski area. It's great that the only thing you have to worry about while you're at the Peruvian is skiing. That is what it is all about. You come up Little Cottonwood Canyon to ski. There is no other skiing experience quite like it. Whether you are at Alta or Snowbird, it is a unique experience. Snowbird has a bit more of a "Snow Town" feel to it with a few restaurants and shops, but Alta and the Peruvian are all about Skiing! At the Peruvian you just roll out of bed in the morning and a huge breakfast is prepared for you. You come back in the afternoon and snacks are ready, drinks are readily available and the hot tub and swimming pool are waiting you. Finally, dinner is ready when you are. Most of us are in bed by 10 pm. Not overwhelming in size and conveniently located in a small footprint. Yes the food could be better, the facilities more up to date and the value more approachable, but there is no better place to stay or SKI!

    Noise from the next room. We were in an adjoining room so the sound travelled under the door.

    Great location with a one minute shuttle to Alta’s Collins base and a five minute shuttle to Snowbird. Excellent meals. Great hot tub. The Peruvian’s bar doubles as the bar for Alta locals so you may meet some interesting people not staying at the hotel.

    Charming, friendly lodge right by the slopes

    Rooms are pretty small and get really hot. Important to remember to crack open the window even if it's 20 degrees outside.

    It's a very old school ski lodge. Lots of boardgames, puzzles, fireplaces. Fun bar. At dinner, and sometimes at breakfast, you can be seated with other guests which is actually quite fun and interesting.
