We tied the knot on Leap Year Day – 1988 so I guess it is really a 4 1/4 anniversary – right? Anyway I found it a good enough reason to celebrate and surprised him with a couple nights stay at one of our favorite Park City spots – The Washington School Hotel formerly known as the Washington School Inn B&B. When we started dating back in ’86 Mr. Green was in training to become an air traffic controller, not an ideal job for a man that does not make quick decisions – he is so much an engineer! Anyway when we were married some of the wonderful folks he had gone through ATC training with gave us a certificate to stay at the Washington School Inn. We love to find B&B’s when possible and have stayed in several over the years, however our favorite is still WSI and with the updates done about 2 years ago it is OVER THE TOP! I have truly never experienced customer service like we had at the Washington School Hotel. The staff was fabulous and I think they are almost mind readers – that is how attentive they are! Yes it was a SPLURGE – but I would do it again in a heartbeat. They say you regret the things you DON’T do – I can say I don’t have any regrets on this trip! Our fabulous friends also met us (they flew in from San Antonio). The night I met my wonderful husband he was on a date with one of these beautiful women and she and I have a most wonderful friendship – we were thrilled they were able to join us for our celebration.
When we arrive at WSH our bags were taken to our room – when we stepped in the room I had 25 red roses waiting for me (did you know florists do not like to sell 25 roses – they want to sell in even dozens, Mr. Green was persistent though!) There was also a bottle of very nice champagne (procured by the hotel staff). On our last evening I was delighted to find Raspberries Dipped in White Chocolate – a treat we had over 20 years ago in Park City. The staff at WSH contacted Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory, they were not willing to prepare these even if the hotel brought them the raspberries, well the hotel went the extra mile, they were able to purchase the white chocolate from RMCF and then they had the hotel chef prepare my wonderful surprise! See what I mean about the customer service!
Oh I don’t think I mentioned – I was already going to be in Salt Lake and it was also the Park City Arts Festival – one of my favorite things to do! And while I do not miss the snow in Utah I do miss those mountains!
The first evening we dined at Chimayo – FABULOUS! On Saturday while we were walking the festival we were also checking menus and decided on The River Horse (because they had truffle mac and cheese) and dinner here was AMAZING! Do you have a favorite spot in Park City? I would love to hear about it!
Here are a few photos from our celebration – I hope you enjoy!
