Only two reasons this didn't get a full five-stars from me. There is no complimentary in-room WiFi and no complimentary breakfast of any kind. Other than that, it is an outstanding hotel choice.
As another reviewer said, if you don't need to stay in downtown SLC proper then consider the University Park Marriott. The staff was above-and-beyond friendly and helpful. Even just passing them in the halls, they would ask if my stay was enjoyable and if there was anything I needed. Always smiling, always cheerful. I appreciate that very much in a hotel.
The facility itself was well-maintained and the stunning lobby even has a Chihuly glass sculpture hanging in it. There's a restaurant that also provides room service, a beautiful and spacious bar area and a Starbucks right in the hotel.
I can't blame the hotel for Utah's tight liquor laws or other food and beverage oddities (like not being able to order just a beer unless you ordered some kind of food item with it). If this hotel were anywhere else, they'd get bonus points from me on those things as well. As it stands, the food and drinks were pricey, but you'd expect as much from a hotel of this level. The quality of the food was very good.
The rooms were outstanding. Small but not confining, with every amenity you'd expect. When I needed a microwave, they had a small one sent up to my room. Outstanding customer service. The beds were firm and felt new, the sheets and comforters were clean and refreshing, the furniture was relaxing and the views were outstanding. We saw a buck grazing outside on the lawn the first morning after we arrived.
Finally, their shuttle can take you to downtown or to the nearby Trax station where you can find cheap and reliable transportation just about anywhere in SLC.
This is an outstanding hotel that I would highly recommend to anyone.
