When the snow melts away and the flowers bloom, Park City transforms into a perfect spring paradise. Park City is truly the perfect shoulder season destination in Utah where you can pack your loved ones in the car and drive up the mountain to stay in a beautiful hotel at a discounted rate. Spring shoulder season or "mud season" as the locals call it runs from April thru May. This is an off-peak time of year when the ski tourists go home leaving room for locals who need a staycation. In this case, we will define locals to include their furry friends. The Waldorf Astoria Park City invites you to escape with your pup to the only luxury hotel at Park City Resort starting April 4th. Here's why:

1. Waldorf Astoria Park City provides bowls and dog beds in the room when they know a canine companion will be in house. The kitchen also sends homemade dog treats with the dog's name printed on them. So cute. It's those personal touches that will make your staycation memorable for both yourself and your fur-child.

2. While your 4 legged friend dines on the gourmet dog treats, you can try a lovely four-course meal for $45 at Powder restaurant starting April 4th. And the best part of your meal is there's complimentary corkage. Powder restaurant is all about creating a modern mountain menu, driven by the seasons and inspired by the finest local ingredients. The prix fixe menu is a great way to sample the new summer dishes that provide fresh and flavorful dining at Powder. The atmosphere is relaxed and casual with views of the pool and Utah sunsets.

3. Spend some time pampering yourself this spring because you deserve it. Waldorf Astoria Park City Spa is offering 50% signature facials and massages on Tuesday and Wednesdays. Locals are welcome to utilize the spa's hair and nail services any time whether they are staying at the luxury hotel or not. Spa offerings for adults and children include pedicures, manicures, and hair services for adults and children to create the perfect parent and child date!
