Peak Hotel is doing what it can to help people who can’t make it home right now by waiving pet fees and offering discounted rooms.
The 127 rooms are now reserved, 70% of them being occupied by people evacuated from the fire.
Rooms started to open on Sunday so they have done everything they can to help those forced to evacuate.
“There are employee rates, so our employees can stay for $ 35, so we just thought, okay. That’s what we do. General Manager Stéphanie Samuels.
Samuels said they will try to accommodate people for as long as possible, as long as evacuation orders persist, but may have to start sending people back as tourists start to return to town.
Other Park City hotels are also mobilizing to help accommodate displaced residents, who hope to be able to return home before the weekend.
