For several summers, we have stayed at the Waldorf Park City for the Park City Food and Wine Classic. It is more expensive than most accommodations, but it is well worth it.
The rooms are big and luxurious with all the comforts of home. Rooms with a "kitchenette" actually have full kitchens with Viking appliances, a full dining table, and plenty of room. There are ample amenities and services, which I won't be able to fully explain. Some of the highlights include the pool (which includes the best pool side food I have ever had), a shuttle into the city departing twice an hour in the summer, quick access to the Canyons resort, and wonderful spa products in the bathrooms.
What really makes the Waldorf stand out is the service. Everyone from the bell staff to the bartender at Slopes went out of their way to greet us and help us with whatever we needed. A small example is that we were rushing through the hall to catch the shuttle into town. A bellman saw us and immediately radioed up to the shuttle and asked him to wait for us. He did this without us even having to ask him. That is the kind of thoughtfulness and attentiveness you can expect at this hotel.
Another standout was Joel, the concierge. We planned our wedding (a small elopement) so that the Park City Food and Wine Classic could be our honeymoon and then our anniversary trip in future years. For the past two years he has worked with us to make our wedding weekend (and our anniversary weekend this year) as special as possible. Both years, Joel went out of his way to make our stay amazing by going above and beyond.
My only suggestion to the hotel is regarding housekeeping. While the rooms were generally clean (MUCH cleaner than other hotels), there were several very small issues I noticed in our room. For example, the backsplash in the large bathroom had toothpaste splatters on the tile. It was difficult to see because of the tile patters, and a simple swipe with a washcloth took care of it, but it was something that could have easily been caught by a thorough cleaning of the room. In addition, our friends were checked into a room that was only partially cleaned (bed was made but there was 1/2 of a hamburger in the fridge and they had not been replaced). They got in late and didn't even mention it until the next morning. They were offered an upgraded room but instead just asked for it to be cleaned and the staff did resolve the issue. It really wasn't a big thing, but it seems like housekeeping is the one area the resort could improve on.
If you are looking for the most luxurious resort in the Park City area (without the pretension of Deer Valley) it is the Waldorf. Yes, it is expensive, but you really do get what you pay for at this resort. We will definitely be back next year.
4th floor is the ground floor and rooms walk out to the pool.
