We were here for our usual couples night downtown, which usually involves a Hotwire booking so we don't have to drive. Having stayed in this hotel several years ago, and it was so bad, I was hesitant to go back this time. However, I got a great rate so decided to ride it out. Glad I did!! While the location isn't within walking distance for a downtown evening, it's a fairly close cab ride away. It was about a $6 or $7 fare to get to 4th & Colorado. If you're visiting UT, it's a perfect location. We were close to the interstate, and didn't experience any noise issues. Ask for a room on the upper floors facing downtown. You could see nothing but the UT stadium from ours. Bed was super-comfy, with great feather pillows & decent linens. Room was on the small side, but enough room for two adults (and probably two children in a double room, but I wouldn't do four adults). We had an excellent breakfast delivered by room service. Nothing overly exciting on the menu, but the do the classics well. They need at least one soda that is both caffeine free & diet. Service was friendly & efficient, decor is contemporary with bright colors (pops of orange). There is a small bar in the lobby area. Recommended for business, family, solo, or couples who are not shooting for a romantic evening. Not recommended for a romantic couples location if you're trying to impress.
