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
This is a really lovely hotel with a really nice outdoor pool and a really high end, beautiful gym. Our room was very luxurious, although dated, very clean although not sparkling. I hope it will eventually have more vegan friendly choices on its menus.
I used to be fairly active in writing TripAdvisor reviews, but have been out of the habit of doing so lately. An experience this morning at this hotel, however, prompts me to pick up my phone and post a review.
We arrived here last night, and the valet folks took our car. In browsing through the hotel brochure before going to bed, I noticed that the hotel has two Destination Chargers, so I asked at the front desk this morning if I could arrange to plug-in and charge. The woman at the desk asked if ours was the white Model 3 (which it is) and said that it had already been charged by the valet folks.
Kudos to the Waldorf Astoria Park City for big touches, such as having Destination Chargers, helping to encourage and accelerate the move to green travel......kudos also for pro-active, thoughtful little touches, such as charging your car without being asked to do so.
Wife and I enjoyed a wonderful stay. Location, comfort, style, luxury. We felt at home and very welcomed. We love this hotel! Premium treatment as a Diamond member. Top shelf experience. Wife loved the spa.
