“Good Customer Service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2013

As other reviewers have pointed out the hotel is undergoing a renovation so you need to be aware of it before you stay here. We did know about the construction in advance and found that when we stayed here we were not very effected by the construction. We were comfortable with the location. If you enjoy walking you can easily walk to restaurants, Temple Square, the convention center and the downtown mall. Yes, we did get approached for money by street people, that is not a hotel issue, it is an issue that Salt Lake City needs to address. I got solicited for money more in Salt Lake City than in NYC. The staff at the hotel were friendly and very helpful in identifying a variety of restaurants for dinner. Once the construction is done this will be a super place to stay in Salt Lake.

Spent 3 days in this property this week. Upon arrival found it under extreme construction and no access to our balcony. The parking was limited at ground level and the access to the underground lot was partially blocked due to scaffolding. Our room was on the park side of the property with heavy traffic. There is an issue with homeless persons in the whole of Temple Square area. During our last night, there was an event in the area that was extremely loud. At 10:15 p.m. I called the desk for an explanation as to what was causing the noise. The clerk told me it was an event at a nearby club for Breast Cancer Awareness and the police were called but there has been no change in the noise. I asked if there was a noise ordinance timeline. The clerk has no idea and no one had informed him there was any relief coming soon. It was past midnight before I was able to get to sleep. While the interior was pleasant and breakfast was nice the exterior issues was a big drawback.

Room Tip: Ask about any construction or upgrades in progress. Ask for a room away from the traffic and whethe...

Was not all that impressed AND the hotel is in the middle of a major remodel. The noise was pretty loud during the day and may not affect many who are not staying in their rooms to work during the day. The hotel seemed pretty old and was nothing special. Again, they are going through a renovation that may make it better. Found the wait staff in the breakfast area hard to communicate with since they seemed to all be spanish and couldn't really understand what I was asking for.

It is located right in downtown. close to all other access like business conventions, malls (gateway & city creek etc.) and sports places (multiple stadiums around). It's totally away from the not-so-nice area so it's safe to go outside at night too.
The room we stayed is spacious, comes with the comfortable beds. It's a rather new hotel so everything looks clean and neat.
The self parking around the buildings is rather crowded but you have the option to go underground parking. Too bad they don't offer guest pass. If you plan to invite visitors to meet you there, they need to park at the street.

Room Tip: They don't offer guest pass. If you plan to invite visitors to meet you there, they need to park...

Good hotel with nice spacious suites: 3 excellent beds, 2 bathrooms, a kitchen. Good location : Temple Square at 1 mile, but (free) public transport at 0,4 mile.

An easy indoor parking and a small nice swimming pool are also available.

At 3 minutes by foot, you can find 3 very good restaurants : Red Rock Brewing Company, Settebello Pizzeria and Squatters Pub Brewery.

Immaculate facility. Great staff. Stay here. Rooms very tastefully appointed. Room and entire facility very clean. Underground parking if you want it. Plus, many rooms have a deck. Great place to get some air and relax after a day full of stuffy meetings. I've stayed at many Residence Inns around the country and this one ranks on top from my perspective.
Kitchen was fantastic if you like to cook for yourself as I do. Granite countertops, four burner ceramic surface stove, full size fridge, dishes, sharp knives, etc...in short...."home away from home".

And the bed....forget about it. Slept like a pup.

Room Tip: Ask for one with a deck.

We had the most positive experience recently during our stay at The Residence Inn-SLC City Center. The hotel is immaculately kept: clean public areas as well as private rooms. The decor is up to date, pleasing to the eye and very comfortable. The extra levels of service that are available to guests-at NO Additional Charge is a breath of fresh air and very accommodating. The Front Desk Attendants are all very professional and positive. The breakfast is not only delicious, but extremely generous and varied...something for everyone! We found the location to be extremely centrally located and the fact that underground, secure parking is provided is an additional plus. They were courteous to alert us to construction on the property, however, it was never a problem or an inconvenience. I highly recommend staying here while in SLC. We are experienced travelers and have not enjoyed our stays in other cities hotels as much as we enjoyed our stay here. Thanks to everyone on staff.... A GREAT value for all that is received.

Room Tip: They are very accommodating here if your "room choice" changes after making reservations...
