I made reservations months ago and requested adjoining rooms. Not only did we not get adjoining rooms, one room was on 11th floor and the other on 5th floor. They promise to rectify that situation but never made any attempt. There was no coffee pot in one room and we requested one in person first and then had to make... More

We only stayed here one night and it was absolutely fine. It's a huge hotel - 2 soaring blocks - well compared to the rest of the Salt Lake City skyline and a large car park. It's a few blocks from the shopping areas of the city, so you need to drive or take a cab to get around. Room... More

The hotel seems to be very good, but a renovation was being done ant it was a bit awkward to be there at the same time the workers were. Front desk service is not very good. We arrived and had to wait some time before someone could check us in. They were also not very friendly. The badroom is really... More

This hotel looks like they are in the middle of remodeling. Our hotel room onky had one chair at the desk and there was a big empty space next to the window where it looks like there should be more furniture, which would not of been a big deal if the customer service was better. The night of our check... More

This hotel is going through a renovation. Not sure how much more is to be completed. The room I was in was not that great :( The carpet was removed, and new wood floors were placed. Bedding was very comfortable. Did have a new large flat screen on the wall. The furniture, lamps, and drapes still seemed old. The bathroom... More

I made the mistake of bidding for a hotel room on a third-party website, and was given The Red Lion. Although disappointed, I decided to give this hotel a fair shot. Priceline stated that I could request a room with king size bed on check in, but the registration desk told me I would have to call Priceline for confirmation... More

I've always liked staying at the Red Lion. They're undergoing a renovation and a re-branding to RL. Not sure what's going on in the lobby, maybe a small stage and tiered seating? The room renovations are nice as well. Carpet has been replaced with "fake wood"-type flooring. The draperies look old, but I could be wrong about that. One appreciated... More

This was my first red lion experience. As a British traveller I was put off the idea of red lions as I have grown up to associate 'red lion' with the rough and ready pubs in rundown areas of town or English infested Spanish holiday destinations. However I was pleasantly surprised to have a comfortable stay for a good price... More

I ended up here as a result of an express deal on Priceline. I paid about $60 per night for the room and an extra $10 per night in tax. My room was spotless with a big flat screen TV, mini fridge and microwave. The hotel is a bit isolated . I don't think that there are any restaurants within... More
