PARK CITY, Utah - Waldorf Astoria Park City is proud to announce the luxury hotel has been voted the United States’ Best Ski Hotel 2017 at the World Ski Awards™ ceremony in Kitzbühel, Austria. The World Ski Awards™ is the only global initiative to recognize, reward and celebrate excellence in ski tourism.
“The World Ski Awards™ are the ski tourism world’s highest accolade, and the team at Waldorf Astoria Park City couldn’t be more honored to be singled out this year,” said Kerry Hing, general manager of Waldorf Astoria Park City. “We’re dedicated to giving guests the ultimate in ski resort luxury, on the slopes and off, and this award brings recognition to efforts on the global stage.”
The annual three-day World Ski Awards™ event is the only time that the international leaders of the industry come together to exchange local knowledge, innovations and principles of best practice on a global stage. This year, a record number of votes were cast by leading ski tourism professionals as well as hundreds of thousands of ski consumers from across the globe.
Waldorf Astoria Park City isn’t resting on its laurels. This winter, the hotel is unveiling “A La Cart” amenity program for guests of the luxury hotel. Guests consult with the hotel’s personal concierge team to build out their ultimate in-room cart loaded with snacks, refreshments and local touch points, as well as board games, DVDs and a hot chocolate bar for the kids — all delivered directly to the room. Additionally, with its proximity to the Utah Olympic Park facilities and Park City Mountain Resort sites from the 2002 Olympic Games, Waldorf Astoria Park City has developed a way for guests to get “a taste of the games,” just in time for the 2018 Winter Olympics in PyeongChang, South Korea. Travelers will have an opportunity to ski or bobsled on Olympic-level slopes and bobsled course while a professional athlete such as Olympian Nate Roberts leads the way.
