It's a nice hotel...comfortable rooms. But...I had to be in the lobby to get a shuttle very early in the morning. Not sure who was coming in and out. They weren't workers (I asked the front desk)...but no one at the desk acknowledged them. I was uncomfortable being alone in the lobby with the front desk folks not even looking... More

Coming 4 hours to SLC for a concert I decided to splurge and pay 144 for a nice hotel instead of a more ecnomical choice to make the night special. The whole ordeal just made me regret coming here at alll. There was a long line in the lobby and the clerks where unfriendly and couldnt even smile. The desk... More

Was an AWESOME surprise! The room was huge! Lots of space! Right outside of the bathroom, where the coffee pot is, there is a vanity shelf! Yes! The bathroom had quite a bit of counter space. The toiletries were great! The bed was comfy and the curtains were blackout....very blackout! Downtown isn't but a short walk away.

The room we stayed in was a jetted tub suite. Waaaay pretty, love the room! Awesome view. BUT we found popcorn under the couch. Kind of off-putting. The diner downstairs is really expensive. I'd suggest going to the Dennys down the street. The pool was said to open at 8 but when we got there at 9 it was still... More

The front desk checked us in quickly. The rooms were clean and spacious. Didn't get a chance to try out the pool but it looked like a good size. There is a restaurant in the hotel, we ate there for breakfast and had the buffet. Was a short drive to the mall and other sites.

The hotel is only a few blocks from Temple Square, and the hotel has shuttles there or to wherever you want to go. I am not Mormon, but Temple Square is worth a visit.
