The Sundance Film Festival began yesterday and if you're looking for a hotel room, be prepared to shell out a lot of money just to rub shoulders with film producers, directors, agents, actors and the inevitable crop of reality TV stars. (However, HotelTonight is offering The Cliff Lodge a simple kind of hotel, for $249 a night. )
While most hotels use the festival to throw huge parties or open up lavish gifting suites, The Sky Lodge, an all-suite luxury note has gone a different route--by opening a pop-up Soul Cycle spinning studio.
Have you heard the buzz? SoulCycle is popping up at the Sundance Film Festival! That's right, we're packing up our yellow bikes and two rockstar instructors for a three-day cardio party in Park City, from Friday, January 17 through Sunday, January 19.
They even created a black and white "short" about the instructors and the yellow Soul Cycle. While the video won't win any awards, it does have some helpful information about the spinning classes. The blog also has the times and how to nab a seat (email SUNDANCE@SOUL-CYCLE.COM).
Meanwhile, the Sky Lodge is completely sold-out through January 27th. Next year, kiddos!
Park City has been a bastion of the well-ski-heeled for eons and now their crown jewel property, The Sky Lodge, has been recognized by Conde Nast Traveler as one of only 20 properties in North America to make the annual 2008 Gold List.
To celebrate this honor, The Sky Lodge is offering a Sky Hot Ultimate Escape package, which includes two nights accommodations, complimentary cooked-to-order breakfast daily, choice of an Amatsu ultimate facial or Koi stone massage, and food & beverage credit of $100 per person, amongst other amenities. The package starts at $589 per person, based on double occupancy for a one bedroom.
Sundance Film Festival is less than a week away so if you are still looking for lodging, we decided to the hit the Craiglist's boards simply so you don't have to. However, keep in mind this is Craiglist's so be safe and think smart before making any decisions.
Here are the options:
· #1: Marriot Summit Watch for $7,000 for a two-bedroom unit from Jan. 21-28.
· #2: The Park City Resort & Spa is advocating they still have rooms available for $239 a night which includes two free breakfasts and a free 20-minute shuttle to the festival.
· #3: The Grand Summit Hotel is offering a three-bedroom unit with four bathrooms and a full kitchen, near the Canyons Resort. The going price is $1,400 a night for a minimum of five nights.
· #4: Or females can shack up in this place for $35 a night.
There you have it. If you missed our other stories from Sundance, you can check out them here.

Where there's a party, there's Tara Reid. Fresh off promoting some parties in Australia, Tara Reid is slated to attend the Picabo Street 3rd Annual Ski Challenge at the Sundance Film Festival.
However, Tara's partying here will go for a good cause--the proceeds will go to the Natinonal Children's Alliance, a charity that benefits abused children. And we will give Tara some credit for not looking as scary drunk as she used to.
The two-day event will take place on the slopes with a VIP Reception Dinner Party on Friday at the Hotel Park City which still has at least an executive suite available during the week for $699 a night, and no cancellations. (Thanks Courtney May!). Other celebs expected at the party are Kate Walsh of "Grey's Anatomy", the newly engaged Giuliana DePandi and Apprentice winner Bill Rancic, and celeb watcher/reporter Billy Bush.

· Hotel Park City Still Has Rooms [HotelChatter]
Those of you still looking for last-minute rooms and don't want to share with a girl or stay in Salt Lake City, might have some luck at the Hotel Park City.
Based on their website, the hotel has a variety of rooms left from an executive suite to the Penthouse Suites which sleeps up to eight people. Much like the Marlin Hotel in Miami, Hotel Park City isn't posting the room rates on their site, you have to call the reservations number at 435-200-2000 for prices.
So let's say you get past that hurdle or want to visit Park City not during Sundance, what can you expect here? We found a review that pretty much sums up the experience:
Large spacious rooms with sweeping views of the mountains. Nice pool area, nice putting green and very helpful staff memebers. Clean! Loved having a washer/dryer in the room and a fridge. Also nice the large jettub in the bathroom and the marble shower (needs more water pressure). Hotel grounds are nice but don't waste the $ on the valet service when you can park outside the front door for free. Lobby was not really functional but the location is great and the staff was very nice.
Other reviews echoed the blandness of the lobby which lacks a bar or place to have an after-skiing snack. So stick to the Sundance parties.

The Sundance Film Festival starts on Jan. 18 and everyone is scrambling for a room. If you are a female, you might happen to be in luck as one woman is looking for a roommate to share her Prospector Square Lodge room. All others who have been shut-out of a room should probably blame Hewlett Packard.
According to the Backstage at Sundance 2007 Blog, HP has taken up 252 hotel rooms/condo units for the festival while it runs the festival's infrastructure technology.
And you don't have to be a blogger to find lodging. If you don't mind trekking an hour from Salt Lake, rooms at these Ramadas are going for under $100. But if you meet Paris Hilton, don't plan on bringing her back here. Then again, maybe Paris is a Ramada-type of gal.
Last year we gave you the Official Lodging recommendations of the Sundance Festival and we hate to break it to you, but this year is not much different.
As always the real challenge to finding a hotel in Sundance, should you be one of the lucky, connected entertainment folk to go there, is finding a reasonably priced hotel room. Actually, the real challenge is finding a hotel room period.
Well, we here at HotelChatter put our internet monkeys to work looking for hotel rooms so you don't have to. Our first finding was this little ditty posted on a Bay Area Filmmakers site:
Looking for 1 female roommate to share my hotel room at the prospector lodge, right on free shuttle line, close to all venues & theaters. 2 beds. second week of the festival, january 23rd to 28th. $580 for the 5 nights, taxes incl.
So all you ladies out there, the Prospector Lodge is really the Prospector Square Lodging and Conference Center and its hotel rooms have pretty basic amenities like cable TV, shower, coffee maker, and a radio/alarm clock.
Yet reviews on the place are mixed, partly because the hotel has different management companies for different types of rooms. (See Management response on TripAdvisor here). And sharing a room with a gal you just met might be awkward since the rooms are tiny. But hopefully, you will meet some rich producer and spend the night at his house, right?
