The Prospector is more of a condo complex rather than a hotel, and different rooms/units most likely belong to different owners. I guess that explains the mixed reviews. My husband and I stayed there during our skiing trip, end of February - beginning of March, with another couple. Our room (building 5, room 532) was excellent. We were on the second floor in a newly renovated room with vaulted ceiling, hardwood floors, very comfortable queen size bed, leather sofa and chair, flat screen TV. Bathroom was excellent, also newly renovated. We had small refrigerator, microwave, coffee maker and toaster. Our room also had a small storage space, perfect for skis and boots. No stove for cooking, but we did not need one anyway. Our friends were not so lucky. They first got a room on the first floor with 2 queen beds, carpeting, dining table and chairs, flat screen TV, older bathroom and extremely loud heating system. Next day they managed to exchange it for another room on the second floor, but unfortunately it was not much better. They had queen size bed, vaulted ceiling, older sofa, old carpeting, smaller table with chairs, older bathroom. Heating system was better, so they decided to keep the second room. It also had a stove, dishwasher, microwave and a small coffee maker, but no toaster and no storage space for skis. So, if you are lucky you can get an excellent room for a fraction of a price other hotels are charging. If you are not so lucky, you may finish in a room that needs renovations and better heating system. In any case, their prices are very good compared to other Park City accommodations.
Location is very good, with 1 shuttle bus stop in front of the lobby and another one in front of apartments. Shuttle buses are free and will take you to the slopes or main street - very convenient. They run every 20 min until midnight, and after that less frequently.
Room service was good - they cleaned rooms daily, even washed dirty dishes, provided clean towels etc. However, for some reason, they did not leave coffee bags in the room and did not replace used shampoo/soap etc. We did not care much for soap and shampoo as we brought our own, but we did have a problem with coffee. There were no coffee shops close by, and the front desk usually didn't have freshly brewed coffee. As my husband cannot function without a cup of coffee in the morning we had to call every day to complain. Then we solved the problem by leaving messages to the housekeeper reminding her to leave coffee bag in the room.
Overall, we had a great time in Park City and enjoyed our room in the Prospector. We would probably stay there again. Especially if we can choose room in advance.
