“A luxurious "friends cave"”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2013

My wife and I love the Waldorf Astoria -- especially in August. (In our home state of Texas the weather readers have been uttering words like, "heat index of 109" without batting an eye.)

The Waldorf is not only literally cool, it's a great base camp for day trips exploring the town of Park City or just being laid-back, staying on the property and enjoying the mountain scenery.

A fun-loving couple was able to meet up with us, so we took advantage of one of the Waldorf's luxurious two-bedroom residence units. These are essentially two separate rooms that share a common area consisting of a designer kitchen ("Viking" brand appliances) and a living room with sofas, big flat screen TV and dining table. There were three bathrooms. The one in the common area offered a beautiful, practical and roomy glass shower that's all the rage these days.

Beds and robes were "heavenly" and the provided coffee "brick" was delish (though it would have helped to have had instructions on how much water to put in the carafe, since the coffee label was of no help). We and our friends used the coffee provided in all three rooms, since we had no particular schedules or plans in the mornings. Exactly what a vacation should be.

Our residence unit was on the sixth floor, just one above the lobby and all accommodations were on the same level. The last residence unit we stayed in at the Park City Waldorf was a two-story, which was also very nice. If you have mobility issues, be sure to ask for the adjacent rooms.

For max versatility, one bedroom features a king bed and the other has two queens. I could see flipping a coin if two parties prefer one layout to the other. (My suggestion: the winner of the toss treats the "loser" to breakfast at the hotel's restaurant, Slopes, which is a food-lover’s delight. We loved the wild boar pancakes and chef’s special breakfast tart.) If you're worried about packing on too many calories, there's always the hotel's fitness center and its high-tech workout equipment. We didn't use the spa.

One morning we struck up a conversation with a friendly couple from Los Angeles that had their sweet Labradoodle in tow. Like our dog, a Dachshund/Labrador retriever mix, their hybrid enjoys car rides and they were breaking up the long drive to their family's ranch in Montana with a few days in town. The fact that the Park City Waldorf welcomes woofers was another feather in its cap, in our book!

Room Tip: For the best mountain views, try to snag a room in the low 6000s with even last two digits (6158, 61...

When we checked in they lost our credit card information on file. We then were checked into a room that someone was already staying in. Dishes were in the sink and garbage was every where. We did not order room service but at check out they had a bill for $170.00 for room service. We argued about the bill and they found that they had billed us for someone else. We were not told about the resort fee. We will be staying somewhere else next time.

When hearing Waldorf Astoria, the expectations are high! Upon arrival in the one bedroom residence, it was definitely exceeding my expectations. With a nice bed, two bathrooms, a large living room, including dining room and high-end kitchen (incl. washer/dryer) it was a small slice of heaven.

However in hospitality - service is a decisive key factor and that is where I was seriously disappointed. Before arrival I asked several questions via e-mail, but for some reason they ignored the question about possible hotel/airport transportation? Upon arrival, we weren't in the system, despite having been e-mailed the booking confirmation. One colleague arrived a day later, but upon check-out they were adamant that he stayed the same duration since the system was telling them this. It wasn't till showing the flight details that they understood they were wrong.

Upon returning to my room, my bed had been made but my door had been left open, without any staff inside. So anybody could have been in my room! At the restaurant one evening we had the waiter forget part of the order, it also took the kitchen over an hour to prepare the meals.

The valet service due to a lot o people leaving, it took about half an hour before we were able to get out truck which was sitting 50ft down the driveway.

So all in all these sometimes small points added up to a big nuisance and Waldorf was not able to match my expectations.

I do need say that not all service was bad, particularly the breakfast was lovely outside on the terrace.

Room Tip: One bedroom residence is definitely the way to go for a couple's retreat and adding an adjoining...

The Waldorf Astoria Park City is a beautiful hotel that provided me with an amazing stay. The lobby and pool are outstanding, and the guest rooms very practicle and comfortable. Joel is an excellent concierge, and the General Manager Kerry Hing is outstanding and very present in overseeing an excellent staff.

Dont get me wrong, it was beautiful but visiting in the summer, there is construction everywhere within the Canyons complex. Dirt roads going in, back up beeping trucks and heavy equipment. Be prepared to share the vision yet it is not quite complete.
It is summer time but this place does not have ice. Bucket and tongs in the room but not an ice machine to be found. Special delivery free ice from room service. Weird.
No self park so be prepared to tip every time you need you car.
Staff was great. Food at slopes was excellent. No mini bar or small store. Waldorf Staff was ready to do anything but isn't is just faster to walk in a store to get a bottle of water instead of calling room service??

Excellent service from staff and great hotel. The staff is very attentive to your needs. Our room included a balcony with a great view of the mountains which was great for a happy hour cocktail before dinner. The staff made excellent recommendations for dining.

Very beautiful relaxing resort hotel. The staff and management were pleasant and attentive. Everything was very clean and well maintained. The restaurant and in room food service was great. I can't wait for my next stay in the two room condo suite.
