Westgate Park City Ski Resort & Spa Receives AAA Four Diamond Rating

Less than four percent of more than 58,000 AAA Approved hotels and restaurants receive this rating

Park City, Utah – Nov 23, 2015 – Westgate Park City Resort & Spa received the esteemed AAA Four Diamond Rating. This is the first time Westgate Park City Resort & Spa has attained this celebrated rating.

Hotels at this level are committed to providing every guest with a personalized experience and attentive service in comfortable, high-quality surroundings, according to AAA. They typically offer an extensive array of amenities and guest services.

Westgate Park City Resort & Spa is part of a select group of establishments within North America. Currently, less than four percent of the more than 58,000 AAA Approved hotels and restaurants receive AAA Four Diamond Rating.

“It is a great honor for our team’s hard work over the past several years to be recognized by such a well-established industry brand like AAA,” said David Siegel, president and CEO of Westgate Resorts.  “I am very proud of my Westgate Park City team that has gone above and beyond to make this possible, and will use this as motivation to continue to push ourselves to exceed our guests’ expectations.”

“AAA is pleased to recognize Westgate Park City Resort & Spa as a Four Diamond hotel,” said Michael Petrone, director of AAA Inspections & Diamond Ratings. “To maintain the exceptional standards required for this rating on a daily basis is an outstanding achievement. AAA Four Diamond establishments are attentive to guests’ needs and consistently deliver memorable travel and dining experiences.” 

During the past four years, Westgate Park City Resort & Spa has invested millions of dollars in renovations, thereby transforming the property into one of the most recognized resorts in Park City and earning numerous awards in the process.

In that time, the property has been renewed with many upgrades and improvements such as the introduction of two new restaurants, including the fine dining concept Edge Steakhouse; renovated guest rooms; redesigned the lobby and corridors; introduced The Canyons’ only official Utah State Liquor Agency, serving a wide variety of wines and liquor on site; and enclosed patios to offer comfortable outdoor dining in winter.

The resort’s long list of accolades include earning several Best of State Utah awards for the third straight year, the 2015 TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence and the Interval International Elite rating. In addition to the resort’s accomplishments, Edge Steakhouse was named among the top 12 steakhouses in the United States, as well as honored with multiple Best of State Utah awards and the 2015 Wine Spectator Award for Excellence. Both Westgate Park City Resort & Spa and Edge Steakhouse have earned spots on USA Today’s 10Best lists for hotels and restaurants.
