I disagree with a lot of the negative reviews for this hotel. Stayed here for 2 nights recently and had no issue with service or the overall stay in any way. It served its purpose exactly as a hotel should. I would stay here again. And probably the best value you will find in downtown SLC.

The rooms are clean and average. I've stayed her about 10 times and 9 times have had a great view. There is a brew and view movie theater behind the hotel and a diner downstairs if you get in late and just need something to hold you over. There is a small outdoor pool that is well kept but it's...

First of all I never write reviews so this must be the worse hotel I have ever stayed in! The price seemed nice for what the room looked like in pictures. Unfortunately our problems started from the time we checked in and the staff was rude and condescending. When we entered the room I looked in the bathroom and noticed... More

The staff at this hotel was super friendly and extremely helpful. After a horrible flight, and many issues getting there it was so nice to have a friendly reception. Room was clean and very large. Had a room on the top floor and had a great view of the city. Great coffee in the morning, and they are not a... More

Stayed here on July 4th. Was happy to breathe again after being in Yellowstone. Salt Lake City was like a ghost town. Location was not the best. Rooms ok but nothing special. Bit of a weird layout. Ate at Rockys Diner for dinner and breakfast. Swarming with flies at breakfast so not good.It was ok, that's all I can say.... More

Centrally located, free parking, outdoor pool and the possibility for buffet breakfast: these are all on my list for acceptable hotels in summertime. Front desk people were friendly, rooms spacious and bathroom also OK. First night the hotel was run out of soap (....) but next night soap arrived. So an OK hotel - but nothing special about it.

Everything was surprisingly awesome. The staff working there were helpful and friendly. The room that we booked was on the bottom floor near the door so we had easy access to come and go. The room was remodeled and the bed was very comfortable. The bathroom was older but everything was clean and worked well. The lobby was exceptionally nice... More

Loved the hotel. The area. Loved they had bikes we borrowed to ride downtown. Free shuttle. BUT Felt slighted as we rented a King Suite. There was no tv in the sitting area when we arrived. We were there Friday through Thursday. We notified them upon check in. It took them over 4 days to get the TV set up,... More

Dear Janet S, I am sorry that we were unable to provide a television for the parlor part of your suite. We are working hard to procure replacement units to ensure all of the TVs are exactly where our guests expect them to be. Thank you for sharing your comments. Paul More

I stayed here for two nights earlier this week. After reading many other reviews, I asked if there were any renovated rooms available when I checked in. Despite being fairly full (and most other downtown hotels being sold out this week due to multiple large functions), they were able to place me in renovated tower room. The room was clean,... More

Dear Mandy_735, My apologies for the lack of water upon check in, we thought we clearly communicated this to our guests and it is obvious that we were wrong. There is nothing more frustrating than not being able to wash up after a long, arduous day of travel, and our front desk staff can certainly relate to that! As I... More
