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

We stayed here for a quick trip to downtown Salt Lake. We got a good deal on the room, and for the price, it wasn't bad. Every time we went past the front desk, there were people waiting to be helped and the employees always seemed rushed and busy. It kind of made you feel like you were intruding on... More

the food and service at the restaurant was not good and housekeeping didn't even clean our rooms. I called the front desk and they said they would be by and they didn't. Also they gave us a ride to the baseball game and said they would come back and get us afterward too if we give them a little notice.... More

Upon arrival, I noticed that the hotel did NOT live up to its star rating. It was old and had a strange odor. As soon as I got to my room, my asthma went crazy! After less than half an hour, I had to leave. At the front desk, I was told that since I had turned on the shower... More

I stayed in this hotel for two days during a conference in Salt Lake City. I arrived at the hotel around 6:30 in the evening and was provided with a 12th floor room in their tower. This was sounding pretty good until I opened the door to the room and discovered that it had not been cleaned after the previous... More

We had to take this trip with the dogs as we were moving to a new city. I understand that limits our choices in hotels, but take that as part of the deal. I had stayed at various Red Lions before and thought they were fine, so this had the location we needed as well as the parking we needed.... More
