We stayed here for one night on our US trip - the rooms were light, clean and very large - there were two double beds and tea/coffee making. The beds were really comfortable and we slept very well. The staff were very good in reception and the restaurant. The food in the restaurant was really nice and service was good.... More

Red Lion is located right off the 600 South exit, I-15, so it is a perfect location. We stayed at Red Lion New Years Eve because they had a Masquerade party that night. Big Easy Entertainment put the party on and did a fantastic job with the entertainment and the food. My one complaint is the bartender used less alcohol... More

I’ve never given a one star review. I’m generally pretty forgiving of problems, understanding that people and systems can make mistakes, unexpected issues come up, etc. However, the way that the Red Lion Salt Lake city treats their customers deserves less than a one star review - and that’s based on actions before I even got the chance to walk...

Stayed here with our family to experience all the downtown attractions during Christmas time. Red Lion exceeded our expectations. Rooms were very modern yet inviting. Enjoyed a great view of city from 9th floor. Beds were more comfortable than my own at home. Huge breakfast served at the diner. Hotel was very clean, nice lobby with huge fireplace. Fun giftshop....

Very deceptive. Upon check-in, I very clearly asked if the breakfast was "complimentary" and included in the cost of the room. The clerk said "yes, the breakfast is included and is served in the restaurant down the hall from 6 to 9". We arrived at 8:30 with no hostess on site, just a large buffet style of typical hotel breakfast... More

Check in staff not friendly. Rooms are nice and updated. They must of ran out of money before they could fox the bathrooms though. Very dated with patch work tiles the wrong color. Had to wait in the lobby for 20 minutes to get towels for the hot tub. Went down to enjoy the hot tub, but the water was... More

Little disappointed in the size of the room. For $198 a night I would have expected much more. We were in a corner room by the stairs which cut into the size of our room. Wouldn't have stayed here if we had any other options, but Salt Lake City was full all over town. Would recommend staying somewhere else. We... More

Three of us stayed at the Red Lion Hotel for 5 night in September 2013. We are planning another visit to Salt Lake City and would have no problem recommending this older hotel. The only draw back for us was that our first room was near an elevator which made a lot of noise. We got our room changed (with... More
