We stayed here to see salt lake. The venue was central a short walk to temple square. However the rooms we not great the bathroom it self was super small the area with the sink was bigger. The cleaner was rude. We arrived back while our room was being finished off we thanked the cleaner had a tip in hand however she turned and walked away and grunted. Pleased she didn't get the tip. Breakfast was minimal.
Our room was as expected in this price range, reasonably clean room, surprised by pillow top beds! Old boxy TV, no fridge, no MW. Coffee maker & hair dryer in room + ironing board & iron. Standard mini soaps & shampoos. Standard hotel issued linens. Hotel has three wings, two with outside entrances and then another enclosed wing. Computer & printer in lobby for guest use. FYI: No smoking in any rooms, $300 charge for smoking in the rooms. Vast parking lot can accommodate dozens of buses, semis, etc.
Average Continental breakfast included coffee, cold cereal, bagels, pre-packaged pastries, canned fruit. Lobby has 24-hr Cappuccino & hot chocolate machine. Nice burger joint across the street, it’s an upscale-ish McD/Wendys/Carls, order at counter, select your own booth seating. Delish bacon burger & salad $9.
Can see Temple & State Capitol from hotel
This was the best pet friendly option I could find in the area that had a room with drive up/park in front of room access. Please note there are plenty of REALLY nice pet friendly hotels in SLC in this same price range but all of those require schleping thru the lobby. If you don't mind dragging pets thru a hotel lobby, book one of the luxury highrises - the price is the same!
Pets are limited to the two wings with outside entrances and cannot always be accommodated, at least that’s my understanding so ask before booking online or leave a note in the Special Accommodations section of the reservation screen. Green spaces for dog walking behind hotel (btwn hotel & SLC Hardware) and along North Temple Street. $15 charge for the dog. We would stay here again if need be, it wasn’t bad.
*Fire department station only a few blocks away, lots of sirens overnight
*AC/Heater unit does not have a “fan only” mode so no white noise to mask street noises.
*Other guests complaining about inability to connect to internet on smart phones & tablets, front desk told these guests it’s a known problem that will be addressed going forward
*VERY small, almost dangerous bathroom! Curved shower rod prevents door from opening completely. I am one of the smallest adults you will ever meet (I’m kid-sized – 100 pounds!) and I cursed this bathroom continuously during our stay. Banged up & bruised because of it, door knob kept ramming into my rib cage! Note to hotel mgmt.: Please get rid of the stupid curved shower rod so the bathroom door opens!
*Rooms near pool are very noisy, seems to be the main path to the front desk and there is also an entrance to another wing of the hotel located by these rooms – if you want quiet ask for a room away from pool
The overall appearance of the hotel was ok for the price. The staff were friendly. However, the first day after I checked in I found somebody's public hair in between the cups when I was going to use the cup. That made me sick!
