Park City, Utah — April 2016 — Forbes Travel Guide unveiled its annual Star Rating list, naming both Edge Steakhouse and Serenity Spa of Westgate Park City Resort & Spa as new Forbes Travel Guide listings. Edge Steakhouse was named a Forbes Recommended restaurant and Serenity Spa by Westgate was named a Forbes Four-Star spa. They both are showcased with all of the Star Rating recipients on ForbesTravelGuide.com.
Edge Steakhouse elevates the traditional American Steakhouse experience to a new level of elegance and innovation. A unique fine dining concept, Edge offers an exciting departure from classic steakhouse dining, with favorites like American Wagyu beef sashimi and lobster and black truffle risotto. The restaurant is noted for one of its signature dishes, the Ribeye Cap, made with 8 ounces of the highest-quality Wagyu beef and prepared using innovative processes and techniques.
As a 30,000-square-foot full-service spa, Serenity Spa offers a range of spa services and products. The spa features 14 treatment rooms, a tranquil spa with waterfall and magnificent amenities. Serenity Spa has captured the prestigious Best of State Award for four consecutive years for Best Destination Spa in Utah.
Edge Steakhouse and Serenity Spa are the latest additions to the luxury travel ratings that have been the gold standard in the hospitality industry since 1958.
“We are honored to be recognized by such a trusted company in the travel and hospitality industry as Forbes,” said Brian Waltrip, General Manager of Westgate Park City Resort & Spa. “To be considered among the very best in the world is a distinction we do not take for granted.”
