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
Service is outstanding. They care that you have a delightful stay. Valet, front desk, housekeeping, restaurant were always checking to make sure there was not a need left unattended. Had we had more energy and the hotel had not been sold out, we would have asked for a room with a more comfortable mattress and sofa. We are super picky so, perhaps it’s just us.
First time at a Waldorf Astoria, the service was excellent, the restaurant food not so much, we had breakfast, as a Diamond they gave me $15 per person, on average you will spend $20-25 per person. They have a valet for the ski equipment, they will storage and in the morning you get the boots (warm) inside the hotel, you can walk to the gondola or take the golf car it's only about 100-200 feet. There you will see your skis arrange by the last name. The service is included in the resort fee. They had a hot pool that my sister enjoyed. Included 2 bottles of water, you can also grab water when getting the boots. I would rec to visit the spa, there are some free features. Valet parking is also included in the resort fee. Again it is about convenience. If you can I would recommend it.
First know that you are not IN the town and so slave to the shuttle schedule. Also know that the room price doesn’t reflect what you’ll pay..fees that pushed it to 900 plus a night. Then there is the cancellation policy: I booked thru Amex then a week before leaving I learned I had to shorten my stay by two nights. I gave them over a week notice and they refused to refund leaving open the possibility they’d rebook the room which is very likely in high season and great ski conditions. The price of the room didn’t include a myriad fees including charging for use of the exercise room. The restaurant was just ok. We got a frozen bun on a burger and they could never get the idea that 2 $15 eggs should come with more than one piece of toast. The stairway was unpainted. If you want to de stress after this forget wine by the big fireplace. It’s Utah. Still the skiing was paradise, the ski team at the hotel was great as was the wait staff in the restaurant...super friendly and helpful.
The staff at the Waldorf Astoria Park City was absolutely fantastic. We celebrated my mother's birthday and we asked the restaurant to bring two desserts and a candle to our room. They made her birthday extra special and we enjoyed our 5 day stay.
The Waldorf Astoria is a great place for a ski vacation. Location is ideal. Got spoiled with the ski butler service. Each morning they brought me my dried out and warmed boots. When coming back, there was hot chocolate and cider for me to enjoy. The breakfast each morning at Powder was great. While packing to go home, I noticed my ski bag zipper was broken. I mentioned it to the gentleman at the front desk, and he went to their maintenance area and got me a roll of duct tape so I could patch up the bag to fly home. The commitment to great service is what I like best about the place.
