The lobby, scented with an earthy leatherwood aroma, sets the stage for the hotel’s mountain-modern vibe, created by interior designer Stephen Brady. Crystal Baccarat chandeliers and artwork by Clay Blackmore blend with bronze stag statues, an inviting antique Italian fireplace, dark woods and re-upholstered antique furniture in leather and velvet. Outdoors, the hotel embraces an enormous pool enclave and a patio with neatly positioned firepits, ideal for making s’mores and gazing at the Wasatch Mountains.
Bed and Bath
Designed by Stephen Brady, the 175 guestrooms and residences range in size from cozy (320 square feet) rooms with gas fireplaces to slightly larger studios with kitchenettes to spacious four-bedroom hotel homes. Blending traditional decor with mountain style, rooms feature textured fabrics, a neutral palette, and furnishings from Mitchell Gold + Bob Williams, including chocolate-brown velvet sofas, leather chairs and mirrored dressers. The generous bathrooms are equipped with HDTVs and Salvatore Ferragamo amenities.
Grab a pastry and cappuccino at Crave before heading out for mountain pursuits. Sunny summer afternoons are best spent at the pool (cabanas have recently been added). Mountain Salvation, a massage using oil and a pain-relieving gel, is a must for those who overexert themselves. In the evening book a table at Slopes, a sophisticated seasonally driven eatery and lounge with Baccarat chandeliers and walls adorned with hand-carved wooden deer antlers.
In the Area
The Canyons is home to one of Utah’s best restaurants, the Farm, a comfortable spot for lunch that offers locally produced cuisine. An après-ski alternative can be found at Jupiter Bowl, a trendy bowling venue in Kimball Junction. Also nearby is the Utah Olympic Park, where you can ride a bobsled on the 2002 Olympic course. A 10-minute ride via free shuttle puts you on Park City’s historic Main Street for ice cream at Java Cow or artisanal cocktails at High West, Utah’s first distillery since the 1800s.
How to Get There
I guess summer is a lot more quiet here than winter (gondola for skiing is right in front of the hotel), but we were happy with the relaxed August atmosphere.
Friendly staff, great pool, nice breakfast, very pleasant. Clean room with very good beds, only the space of our room was limited. Great place for a short stop in summer.
As a Hilton diamond member I was upgraded to a wonderful suite that is larger than some apartments. The one bedroom had two bathrooms, an expansive dining room and kitchen filled with granite and stainless steel appliances, along with a living room. Staff were responsive and the hotel was a great value, especially with the upgraded room.
This is a lovely hotel in a beautiful setting. Service was adequate. There was a wait to check in. Compulsory valet parking. Generally mediocre service that seems to be standard in Park City restaurants and facilities, regardless of the brand on the door.
If your a Diamond member the Waldorf does go above and beyond.I was upgraded to an amazing suite with a dining room,2 bathrooms,Jacuzzi,1 bedroom,living room and amazing kitchen.The staff was 5 star the whole week I was there. Shuttle was available and on time throughout our stay. We never waited more than 10-15 minutes for the shuttle.I would recommend this hotel to anybody even if they were not a diamond member.The staff from the cleaning staff to the front desk were always very nice, and seemed very happy to work at the hotel.
Not a typical stay and what was expected at a Waldorf. Disappointed in the overall experience. I typically do not write reviews as I stay at several hotels every week but felt compelled to do so here.
