Simple Luxuries: The Waldorf Astoria, Park City, Utah

This past weekend, my husband and I stayed at the Waldorf Astoria in Park City. Not only were the interiors visually breathtaking, but I was impressed with the thought they put into the little details around our room. These simple luxuries are easy to recreate around your house, if you just want to enjoy relaxing or to impress your house guests.

Below are a few images of the hotel and how to recreate these elements in your own home.

The Lobby - my favorite element is the wide-sweeping staircase.
The room we stayed in.

The Simple Luxuries:

1. The Door Hanger - "Privacy Please"

The door hanger at the Waldorf Astoria was made of black leather and silver scripting. I found an affordable option at World Market:

2. Carafe and Glasses

It was so refreshing to have ice water on the nightstand to fend off thirsty nights. I recommend this set from Crate & Barrel for your own home:

3. Fur Throw Blanket

The bed was dressed with a beautiful brown fur blanket. On chilly evenings, it comes in handy. I found a similar one you can purchase at Amazon:

4. Robe and Slipper Set

No hotel stay would be complete without a fluffy robe and slippers. The Waldorf Astoria hooked us up:

Purchase a similar set at Gilden Tree:

5. Salvatore Ferragamo Toiletries

The most pleasant surprise from this trip were the lovely toiletries in the bathroom. They were all "Tuscan Soul" by Salvatore Ferragamo:

You can actually purchase these on eBay.

6. Bonus: Outdoor Gas Firepit

Near the front entrance to the lobby, there was a gorgeous open gas fire pit. It is really tempting to purchase a mini version of my own, like this one at Woodland Direct:
