“Great service but low value”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2012 via mobile

It's a new Holiday Inn but they give no extras. The rates are high for comfortable rooms. I'm platinum with Priority club and was offered no upgrades, discounts or vouchers. The staff was very helpful when I got sick during the trip. The in house restaraunt is about the only place to eat for miles around.

Thank you for your business and for your feedback. We truly do value you as one of our Priority Club Platinum members. I hope you were able to enjoy our complimentary chocolate chips cookies and Dasani bottled water that we have for our Priority Club members. We also have breakfast coupons for our Platinum members and we do provide room upgrades when they are available. Typically we are sold out during the week so upgrades are sometimes difficult to come by mid week. Again, I appreciate your honest feedback and hope you will give us another opportunity next time you come through Salt Lake City.

Stayed in two Holiday Inns this trip and both were great properties. This one, outside Salt Lake City's airport, is brand new and very fresh. Room was high quality, with clever allusions to Holiday Inns past (pictures with old signs, $8 room prices, etc. . .), a good bed, nice and updated decor, and an efficient bathroom. Quibbles include a door lock that didn't work so well--wouldn't lock back up, so had to get this taken care of with the front desk--and scant staff. Sometimes I went past front desk and there was no one. Also fitness center was almost non-existent. Would be nice if the hotel had arrangements with a nearby gym if the facility on site is so inadequate.

Location of the hotel is super convenient. Airport is very close (though Google Maps sent me the wrong way--beware) and downtown SLC is just four miles away, merely five minutes with no traffic.

Overall great value--my $51 bid was accepted on Priceline (usually about $129) and at the hotel, internet and parking are free. Beware if you use Priceline and require a double double--the Priceline rooms have just one bed, and getting a room with two beds will subject you to an upcharge. This is a heinous practice among hotels that treat Priceline guests differently, but they do here.

Interestingly, this is the only full service Holiday Inn in Salt Lake City, which I found odd. Does make it easier to locate though.

Room Tip: Double double rooms with two beds seem to be at a premium here.

This holiday inn was gorgeous and he rooms huge. The front desk staff was so professional and nice, they let us check in early. I would definitely stay here again. No free breakfast but buffet was 1/2 with coupon from checkin so my breakfast with coffee only $5.75 each including coffee. The food was very good. We also ordered pizza last night and it was made from scratch and do good!

Very impressed with the food at this hotel restaurant. The food was good and the service quick for our large group of 13. The fish tacos were yummy. I would eat here again.

This hotel was in the recent PointBreak list and we were on a trip to Yellowstone, so I booked two nights without any hesitation. It is only a 5-10 minute drive to get to the hotel from airport. When we checked in, a very polite staff welcomed us and said we had been upgraded to a one bedroom suite. It turns to be a mini suite with sofa and an extra LCD tv in a very small living room, but anyway better than nothing. They don't have free breakfast, and instead offer a voucher which takes 50% off our breakfast bill. The room is clean but the air conditioning can be extremely loud at night, which makes me give only 4 stars.

The neighborhood surrounding the hotel is a typical no-man zone, like in other US cities' outskirts. And I don't think there is any reasonable restaurant except the hotel's own within walking distance. But driving in SLC is relaxing and traffic is way better than other major US cities. So it is not a bad idea to stay outside the downtown and rent a car, if you can get a good price here.

Spent one night there on the way to Denver. Front desk staff was extremely friendly. The property is nicely decorated, the lobby has a good feel to it. We had a 1 bedroom suite which was spacious and modern. Comfortable bed and didn't hear any plane noise even thoughh we were on the airport side of the hotel. My only complaint was the lighting. The area where the bathroom and closet is was very dark. Our bill was ready under the door in the morning and we were thanked and told to have a great day on the way out the door.

Would definitely stay there again.
