I like the Hyatt Place concept, I like the size of the rooms and the basic design. I was not keen on the downtown SLC hotel.
The rooms are large, over 350 square feet with quadrants for bathroom, sleeping, leisure and work/food. There is a mini-fridge, but no microwave, and a graite countertop.
The bath has a separate sink and commode/shower. The shower is spacious, about 3 x 6, with glass doors.
The sleeping area is large enough but the bed tables are only surfaces, did not have drawers which I consider a negative. Clock radio was easy to use and effective.
Leisure area is a sectional sofa which is very adaptable. Being able to watch the big screen TV from either the sofa or the bed is a nice touch.
The work area......depends on the room configuration. In the standard configuration there is adequate power and connectivity, in the configuration I had in SLC this was not the case; there was inadequate power and if it wasn't for wi-fi there would have been no connectivity.
The standard room configurtion works for me with the back half of the room devoted to sleeping and bath and the front the work/food and leisure. My configuration had the front of the room the food/work and bath and the back half leisure and sleeping.....one has to walk completely around the room to get from the bed to the bath.
Check-in and front desk service was very good, very pleasant. Housekeeping was spotty. One day they took my day old bath soap and did not replace it. Another day they did not replace my bath towels and it took a while to get them after calling the front desk because none were available.......they were being washed. The graite countertop was not wiped even when used.
Complementary breakfast was fine, nothing to write home about.
Location was good, a short walk to downtown and even shorter to the Olympic Memorial mall/plaza,
Bottom line: good design, spotty service. I might try a comparable product next trip to SLC,
