MCLEAN, Va.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Waldorf Astoria Hotels & Resorts, Hilton Worldwide’s luxury brand of landmark hotels, along with Hilton HHonors, the loyalty program for Hilton Worldwide, are pleased to announce their continued support for the Sundance Film Festival as the 2013 official hotel sponsor. The partnership coincides with the rollout of True Waldorf Service, the latest Waldorf Astoria service platform that extends the legendary personal service principles that were first born at the flagship Waldorf Astoria property in New York to the now more than twenty Waldorf Astoria hotels and resorts worldwide, including Waldorf Astoria Park City.
“We look forward to providing True Waldorf Service at the Sundance Film Festival and to our fans and followers online.”
As filmmakers, fans and actors make their way to Park City and the world watches from afar, True Waldorf Service will come to life for the 2013 Sundance Film Festival through:

As part of the True Waldorf Service hotel experience, a personal concierge assigned to each qualified guest acts as the guest’s primary contact – before, during and after a stay – to guarantee every want and request is met.
As an additional element of the sponsorship, the Hilton Worldwide LightStay Sustainability Award, first introduced in 2012, will once again support the Sundance Institute Documentary Film Program and Fund’s full range of year-round activities, which includes awarding grants to documentary film projects that focus on sustainability issues. LightStay represents Hilton Worldwide's overarching commitment to integrating sustainability into every guest experience, which is critical to the long-term success of its business.
