We visited SLC to attend a convention. We booked a room by the airport and the motel was so bad, we couldn't stay there. At the last minute we found a room at the Holiday Inn Express downtown and couldn't be more pleased. Staff was professional and friendly. Rooms were clean and modern. This is located conveniently directly across from... More

We stayed here while attending the antiques road show . The rooms were nice and comfortable and the hotel is directly across from the Salt Palace. There were no towels at the pool the morning we used it, but we made a call to the desk and they quickly remedied the problem. They are working on there parking area, so... More

This hotel is within walking distance to the Temple and Convention Centre. If you're driving and need parking be aware the hotel parking area is currently a work zone so parking is about 5-6 blocks away via a courtesy shuttle. Also note the hotel has night clubs on either side. Request a street facing high room floor which may reduce... More

Our friends stayed at this hotel last year and spoke well of the newly renovated space with shuttle service and a delicious breakfast buffet each morning so my family and I were excited to stay here! When we got to the airport, we found out that the Holiday Inn no longer offers shuttle service. Fine, not a big deal. Here's... More

Downtown and recently renovated. Very large hotel for a Holiday Inn Express. Staff goes out of their way to assist. Rooms are large, nicely appointed, and comfortable. Breakfast buffet was perfect for me. Only issue in the room - The blower on AC shuts off when AC compressor cycles off. If you need constant sound be sure to take sound... More

Great remodeled rooms, very comfortable, right across from convention center. Walking distance to most tourist spots and many quality restaurants. But beware of the breakfast rush! The largest breakfast area I have ever seen in a H.I. Exp. but still not enough seating for the rush of people in and out. When you do get a table, you will probably... More
