I had reservations for nights. Room was clean and comfortable. Stayed first night and then left early to spend day at Family History Library. I came back to my room tired at 7:30pm and my keys didn't work. I thought they had been demagnetized so I went to front desk to get new ones. They told me I had checked... More

This is probably the best place in the world to stay for genealogical research. It is 150 yards from the door of my room to the door of the Family History Library. My room is among the cheapest, around 30 feet by 14 with two queen beds. They do a special rate for genealogists - not always available if bookings... More

Yes, I have been there several times but I wouldn't go any place else when I want to do genealogy. Free Shuttle picked me up at the airport in 20 minutes and I was at the hotel in another 20 minutes. I asked for a room facing the street and away from the library next door as their generators are... More

We were in Salt Lake to do family research so booked here as the family research library is almost next door. We were very pleased with our entire stay. Perfect location if doing genealogy research!

It was good being able to check in about 45 min early, but I find it very odd that when you check in (and this just wasn't me but everybody checking in, I had to wait about an hour and listened to all the check ins) that you are told " initial here to say you have read the no... More

We came to Salt Lake City to do genealogical research. This is the place to stay - many genealogical groups stay her for a week or more.

Our second time at the plaza. The location downtown is great with easy walking distance to two shopping malls and restaurants. The hotel is a little old, rooms are updated with nice appointments, nice bed and very nice bedding and linens. Rooms are small. Parking is only $5 daily. Room rates are reasonable.

If your coming to do Family History this is the place to stay. Right next store. Across the street is Temple Square which is beautiful with the Mormon Tabernacle. They have a free airport shuttle.
