The public areas in this hotel are very nicely decorated, as was our room. This hotel is in a perfect location for visiting Temple Square and the Utah State Capitol. We walked two blocks to the Courthouse stop of the Trax Train. Either the blue or green line will take you free of charge to the Temple Square area. When... More

We were very pleased with our stay at this hotel! Clean comfortable room, very friendly staff and a very good breakfast! We loved how we were close enough to walk to so many of the places we wanted to see. Temple square is beautiful and if you are there on a Thursday evening you can sit in on the Mormon... More

I planned on staying in SLC longer than one night, but they got a freak blizzard and I was there to photograph a project at the University, so the trip (and, the ten-hour white-knuckled drive there) was a total bust. The hotel was good, but it's an older property so don't expect new construction. They were nice enough to cancel... More

I was out on a business trip. My first time without the husband and 6 kids. Made a little small talk with the front desk lady as she was checking me in, and she upgraded my room for free. It made for a nice stay without the family. The room was nothing fancy, no fancy decor, but it was cozier... More

The hotel is nice for the price. Beds were very comfortable with lots of pillows. I would have liked for the rooms to be a little cleaner-the carpet, in particular. However, it wasn't a deal breaker, and I would stay here again in the future if I needed a less expensive stay!

This hotel was within walking distance to so many amenities that people seemed to be constantly coming through from their various tours and excursions. I think the free-tram route is only a block or so from the hotel. There are several convenience stores and a McDonalds near the hotel and a couple of other hotel restaurants if you don't mind...

I have stayed here twice in the last 4 months. The first time the lady assured me my room would be quiet as it backed up against the community food area (breakfast etc.) While I didn't hear much from folks eating it was the comings and going to the eating area. The room had a lot of foot traffic by... More

Hello 'Decent'- Thanks for your detailed review. We always try to answer the phone within three rings, but occasionally in the evening we have to step away toe assist other guests. In designing the hotel we made the best use of the available space while keeping fire code and liability issues in mind. I am surprised to hear that you... More

The service was a little bit strange. I think the bed and linen was a bit dirty, the room itself was fine. Pretty close, maybe a 5 or 10 minute walk to restaurants and food, pretty central to everything.

Maybe coming from some decidedly basic lodgings the night before made this place a little better but we found exactly what we were looking for in a nice, comfortable, modern room in a quiet downtown location. Front desk staff were very friendly and accommodating in getting us into the room before the scheduled check-in time and the room was very... More
