Waldorf Astoria Hotels & Resorts unveils Ultimate Driving Experiences

Waldorf Astoria Hotels & Resorts has launched Waldorf Astoria Driving Experiences at six of its landmark properties in the United States.  The new driving program offers hotel guests the unique opportunity to get behind-the-wheel of three incredible supercars under the guidance of world-class professional racecar driver Didier Theys.

Designed to appeal to discerning travellers and automotive enthusiasts, Waldorf Astoria Driving Experiences give participants access to three of the world’s most famous super cars, including a Ferrari 458 Italia Spider, McLaren MP4-12C, and Porsche 911 Turbo.  

The driving experience program will start its engines in six of Waldorf Astoria’s 29 properties, including:
·         Waldorf Astoria Park City – Park City, Utah, September 30 – October 5
·         La Quinta, A Waldorf Astoria Resort – Palm Springs, California, October 15 – 20
·         The Boulders, A Waldorf Astoria Resort – Scottsdale, Arizona, October 24 – 29
·         The Roosevelt, A Waldorf Astoria Hotel – New Orleans, Louisiana, November 6 – 11
·         Boca Raton Resort & Club, A Waldorf Astoria Resort – Boca Raton, Florida, November 14 – 19
·         Arizona Biltmore, A Waldorf Astoria Resort – Phoenix, Arizona, December 2 – 7  

At every location, motorists will receive an introduction and tutorial about each vehicle by excursion leader and Belgian race champion Didier Theys, and then set out behind the wheels on a bespoke and breath taking driving tour, rotating cars and drivers along the way.  

The pre-arranged courses will take attendees through some of America’s most beautiful routes and historic landmarks.  In Utah, for example, the pre-planned course will take the group past Provo Canyon and Bridal Veil Falls, and the Palm Springs route will include stops along the San Bernardino National Forest and Big Bear Mountain.  The total drive time will be approximately three hours and the cost of the experience is $999 (approx. £601) per couple (excluding accommodations).  Waldorf Astoria Ultimate Driving Experiences are presented in partnership with DXL US.  

“The Waldorf Astoria brand has provided unforgettable experiences for its guests for more than a century,” said John T.A. Vanderslice, global head, Waldorf Astoria Hotels & Resorts, Hilton Worldwide.  “This program continues our legacy by offering our clientele authentic and unforgettable moments that further connect them to our properties in an extraordinarily modern and interactive way.”
