Fellow travelers to SLC, leave the rococo design values of Marriott behind and behold Kimpton. Their Monaco Hotel is a very good value in Downtown SLC, within a block of the Salt Palace and across from the home of Ballet West.
I am a serial traveler for business, and have recently discovered the Kimpton Hotel chain due to its prominence on our company's travel partner web site. I have completed two stays for a total of three nights. I am writing this review from a lovely Kimpton in Cupertino, CA that is every bit the quality property that is the Monaco in SLC.
The restaurant is first rate, the rooms are spectacular. Yes, it is hard to see the mountains through the dirty windows, but perhaps that is a winter thing. Don't stay anywhere else in downtown, period.
The staff at the Monaco is also a treat. They have a restrained sense of humor, know the city, and engage their customers with respect. The free wine party every night doesn't hurt, either.
I think Kimpton may be the new business traveler standard.
