This was a former downtown hotel now owned by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. It has rooms for receptions, beautiful lobby with chandelier and stained glass and several restaurants. Quite elegant.

On my tour the guide took us here and the hotel lobby is breathtaking with stain glass and wood carvings. This is a hidden gem.

While we stayed here on our wedding night when it was the Hotel Utah back in the day, we visit regularly for gatherings (son's wedding reception here, reunions, etc.), view various movies, etc. The food available is quite good, and the atmosphere is always friendly.

The food was very good but the ambience is what sealed the deal for us. The staff are amazing and treat you like royalty. I would recommend this establishment over any other in the area.

The movie is shown just in english but ask they will have headphone with audio in your local language. Temple square has bi-lingual missionaries as well.
