“Dakota Mountain Lodge is our vision of the perfect Park City experience: unparalleled access to world class amenities and service befitting a Waldorf Astoria Collection luxury property, within a stunning alpine setting,” said General Manager Jim Miller. “With an exceptional spa, fine cuisine and elegantly appointed accommodations, we are delighted to bring a new standard of luxury to Park City.”
Dakota Mountain Lodge & Golden Door Spa reflects a contemporary mountain elegance with dark finished woods, tile and stonework – a sophisticated and subtle departure from typical mountain lodge decor. Guests can gather year-round in the large outdoor courtyard that features fire pits and a heated pool and whirlpool spas with sweeping views of the surrounding mountain vistas.

Guestrooms are finished with custom designed furniture, natural colors and rich interiors to create a casual yet sophisticated retreat. Available in king or queen rooms, each room is designed with a gas fireplace, 42” HDTV, spacious bath with jetted tubs and/or steam showers, and private patio or balcony. Suites are one-to-four-bedroom, some loft style, and feature large gourmet kitchens with stainless steel appliances and granite countertops. The Presidential Suite is a six bedroom suite with private study, massage room and exhibition kitchen. Guests can enjoy panoramic views of the Wasatch Mountains in the suite’s Great Room through floor to ceiling windows.

Dakota Mountain Lodge features world-class wellness destination Golden Door Spa, widely recognized as the first luxury destination spa in the United States. As one of only six Golden Door spa locations in the world, the resort offers both a destination spa program and individual treatments in a resort setting from Golden Door. The 16,000-square-foot facility with 15 treatment rooms will serve as a day spa for locals, a resort spa for travelers and a destination wellness retreat for spa aficionados. The full service spa features a custom designed fitness center with an extensive menu of classes as well as a hair and nail spa.

Guests will also enjoy the first outpost of award-winning Spruce restaurant of San Francisco, which was named one of Esquire’s Best New Restaurants in 2008. Featuring the same convivial sophistication as the flagship location, the restaurant’s winning formula combines gracious, top-tier service, an exceptional wine program and Executive Chef Mark Sullivan’s contemporary American cuisine that showcases the finest in local and seasonal ingredients. The 5,000-square-foot restaurant has 160 seats with indoor and seasonal outdoor seating, private dining areas and a lounge.

The hotel also offers the option of full ownership with 104 spacious residences, ranging from 359-square-foot studios to 2,015-square-foot four-bedroom, four-bath suites. Hotel residences range in price from $400,000 to $2 million.*
