Poor TV reception. Poor plumbing. Shower was hard to regulate. Pet friendly,so there was a barking dog in the next room. We were with a group, so we had no choice as to where we were staying this night. Would not stay here again.

Okay, this hotel is pretty corporate and soulless. But the rooms are spacious and well-appointed, the beds are comfortable, there are some extra amenities like an outdoor pool and business center for printing. The location is good for access to downtown eateries and attractions. They appear to charge for wifi, which is a bit cheesy. Otherwise, a solid three-star hotel.

We decided to spend twice as much as the motel 6 next door for a couple nights at a better room. What a mistake! The room was barely bigger than the king bed. No place even on the floor for our two suitcases. There was a "desk", which was like a wall desk cut in a slice...barely big enough to... More

We arrived to our Hotel late, very tired from long bus journey to find that our rooms were not ready for most of us, the tour rep said this happened all the time so we wondered why they still use this Hotel, never mind, some of our fellow guests said they would have a drink in the bar until the...

I will not ever stay at this hotel again. When I checked in nothing was said, I was handed my keys and sent on my way. Never having stayed here before I knew nothing about the hotel amenities. Upon getting in my room I was quite surprised to see the closet door leaned against the other. Reported that to the... More

Do NOT have your company book this hotel for you and expect it to go on their card. This hotel will bill it to your personal credit card and cause you headaches. I loved the hotel but hated the staff and bookkeeping.

The location is fantastic. We rented a car, but you don't have to to see things in SLC. We saw famous Temple square, which is a nice walk from the hotel. We also visited the upscale mall City Creek across from the square. It is full of good food, great shopping and an outdoor area with live music on the... More

The hotel was bright and cheery. The hotel and conference rooms were comfortable. My room was quiet and comfortable. I enjoyed my breakfast at the Red Dinner. Overall my stay at the Red Lion was a great experience.

I am away on business 8 - 10 times every year. This was the cleanest hotel with the friendliest staff that i experienced in quite a number of years. And an excellent breakfast buffet to start the day.

Attended at meeting with about 100 participants. Rooms were not ready after the checkin time and a dozen or so of us waited at the desk for an hour until we got our room. It appeared they had a contract with an airline because there was a steady flow of flight crews coming in and they never had to wait... More
