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