While lots of hotels are cashing in on the Winter Olympics spirit with speciality cocktails and patriotic packages, the Waldorf Astoria Park City is actually bringing a bit of the Sochi Olympics to its guests.

One of their valet staffers, Patrick Meek, just competed for the U.S. National Speedskating team over the weekend (He finished 20th in the 5000 meters race.) And now guests can book a lesson with Meek while staying at the hotel. The lesson lasts for two hours and costs $120. Rates at the hotel start at $839 for a king bed with a gas fireplace this weekend. (Meek will probably be back at the hotel in a few weeks.)

Meek is employed at the hotel as part of the Hilton HHonors Team USA athlete career program, which works around his busy training schedule. Since Park City is a training ground for winter sports, the place is probably crawling with past, present and future Olympians. Learn more about Meek and the program in this video here.
