Around Utah

May 6, 2013

Waldorf Astoria Park City is a luxury mountain hotel with a variety of year-round seasonal activities. Accommodations include custom furnishings and provide views of the ski slopes and picturesque Wasatch Mountains. Its residences also include kitchens outfitted with Viking appliances. Waldorf Astoria Park City opened in 2009 as part of a $50-million transformation of Canyons Resort.

Slopes, Waldorf Astoria Park City’s fine dining restaurant, offers modern mountain cuisine. Led by executive chef Clement Gelas, the dishes and ingredients draw inspiration from the surrounding Wasatch Mountains to bring elements of nature into the restaurant by sourcing and foraging for local ingredients from the nearby mountain and serving dishes on natural stone and wood.

The 16,000-square-foot Waldorf Astoria Spa is one of only three of its kind in the world. The facility includes 15 treatment rooms and a full-service hair and nail salon. Additionally, the spa features Trevor Cates, an onsite naturopathic physician.
