The Goldener Hirsch Inn, a small luxury resort nestled in the heart of Deer Valley Resort, was again voted the country’s “Best Ski Boutique Hotel” in the World Ski Awards for the second time in three years.

The World Ski Awards, part of the World Travel Awards, also recognized Deer Valley Resort as the Best Resort in North America.  Both were crowned this past weekend at a three-day awards ceremony in Kitzbühel, Austria— just 50 miles from the Goldener Hirsch’s namesake and inspiration, the Hotel Goldener Hirsch in Salzburg, Austria.

“We are so thrilled about this win!” said Hope Eccles, president of Goldener Hirsch Inn. “That we won speaks to the friendliness and professionalism of our staff, who make every stay special, and also to all of our wonderful guests. We are delighted to be part of Deer Valley Resort, the Number One Ski Resort in the US!”

This award is the latest accolade for Goldener Hirsch Inn, which has received acclaim for its accommodations and personalized service since opening in 1991. In addition to earning “Extraordinary” ratings from the Zagat Survey and “Four-Diamond” ratings from AAA for the past 12 years, it has won repeated recognition from magazines including Wine Spectator.

Located just steps from the ski runs of Deer Valley, the Goldener Hirsch Inn plays home to a European environment in an unparalleled natural setting, featuring award-winning ski-in/ski-out luxury accommodations, personal five-star service, and a renowned full-service restaurant and lounge.

The hotel’s 20 rooms feature European King-sized beds, hand-painted furnishings, fluffy terry-cloth robes and slippers, private balconies and wood-burning fireplaces. Guests can also enjoy the hotel’s hot tubs, sauna and exercise equipment and Continental and American fare from its restaurant, which has earned “Extraordinary” ratings from Zagat and Four-Diamond recommendations from AAA.

“We take the small village, small hotel experience of the European Alps and make it a reality here in Deer Valley,” Eccles said. “Ours is a truly warm experience, where you can share special evenings with your loved ones and meet fellow guests also enjoying a special stay with us. When you stay at the Goldener Hirsch Inn, you’re sure to have a fully satisfying, one-of-a-kind experience.”
