My husband had a meeting and company paid for 1 night and we paid for the 2 following. I had researched to see if we could find a cheaper place as comfortable, but not necessarily as fancy. I found Salt Lake City has a big drop in comfort with a small drop in price. We paid $110 for the cheapest section, and across the city, a 'Super 8' kind of place charged $85. So for the level of comfort, access and room size, this is a much better value.
The room was large and comfortable, The bathroom was older, but very clean and pleasant. The shower (something I always care about) was clean and the water temperature, volume and pressure was great-- many other places have a water reducer that makes the water come out in a harsh mist, painful and hard to use. This one has a wonderful shower head that was ample, and the volume was amazing. You almost had to brace yourself against the pressure--lovely! the towels were large and soft.We asked for the free coffee pot, and they came with mugs, very nice.
The TV was fine, the bed was slightly upscale, sheets were soft and well tucked in-- Don't you hate the ones that are tucked in so when you pull out the top sheet and blanket all the bottom ones come, too? These didn't. There were 5 pillows, one of them soft enough for me.
There are 2 restaurants on site. One is fancy and expensive, the other is an upscale cafe and both are wonderful. We ate Valentines breakfast at the $$$ buffet, but OMG! I was in heaven. There was anything you could want, from a omelet cooked in front of you to smoked salmon and blinis, and a fruit bar that had the biggest blackberrys and rasberrys you ever saw, and of course all the oranges and grapefruit was pre-sliced. Really worth the price.
At the cafe, the food was wonderful and not excessively expensive. The chickenfried steak had gravy so good I wanted to lick the plate.
The walk to and from the main building is also a challenge. You have to walk through the traffic, and there is no sidewalk near the entrance. The indoor-outdoor pool is on the second floor of the main building, and we didn't even visit it, although I am a fan of swimming year-around. So you would have to dress, walk, and then undress to swim. The room attendant did not restock the coffee the second night, but did the 3rd.
I would stay here again, unless I found a place where the price/value ratio was better.
