The Waldorf Astoria Park City provides a luxurious getaway for travelers looking for the highest level of sophistication. But the grand, five-star hotel also happens to be situated at the base of Park City Mountain, providing guests with an experience that’s at the intersection of luxury and adventure.

Kellie Hanselman, the director of sales and marketing for Waldorf Astoria Park City, has been with Hilton properties since 2010. Originally from Iowa, Kellie had moved for work many times before settling in Park City a year ago.

“I was interested in moving to Park City and joining this property because Waldorf Astoria is the most iconic brand within the Hilton portfolio and is the epitome of world-class luxury. Hilton’s foundational pillars actually tie back to Waldorf Astoria and its famed New York City hotel,” Kellie says. “Luxury is a different sell than other types of hotels. At Waldorf Astoria Park City, we pride ourselves on delivering the most effortless luxury experiences to our guests.”

The Waldorf Astoria Park City has 160 rooms and residences, and offers year-round amenities, meeting rooms and special event space. The team prides themselves at providing an exceptional luxury experience for each and every guest — from the first conversation until their last moments at the property, the team works hard to give their guests a tranquil escape and an unforgettable experience.

“There’s a certain ‘energy’ and ongoing excitement that comes with being on-property. Interacting with our guests, customers and team members is one of my favorite parts of my job,” Kellie adds. “The company culture at Hilton is one of the reasons that I have been with the brand for so long. We are a company that is over 100 years old, which speaks a lot to how we treat our guests and team members.”

Waldorf Astoria Park City is the first luxury hotel you’ll pass on your way into Park City. The resort sits at the base of Park City Mountain in Canyons Village making it an ideal basecamp for adventure. In the winter, they make the ski trip infinitely easier by providing a ski valet service that transports ski gear to the gondola, so all guests have to do is put on their boots and head to the slopes. When the snow melts, it reveals the rolling hills of the Canyons Golf Course, which sits adjacent to the Waldorf. The property itself has one of the largest poolside decks in the area, with two hot tubs, poolside refreshments and 125 luxurious chaise lounge chairs.
