This hotel has convenient dining located adjacent to the parking lot. Upon entering the hotel, the cathedral ceiling is very attractive to the eye. The front desk employees were adequate but definately not the most charming or personable.
The elevators were a short distance from the front desk. The pool was indoors and accompanied by a jucuzzi. Any shopping required travel by car. Breakfast was typical for HI, but was slowly stocked. Our room was what I consider a King Study and was adequate at most. We called the front desk upon arrival and told them that our ironing board was broken and were told they would send us a new one, which they never did. So much for customer service at this locale.
In Salt Lake City, the Mormon tabernacle is ground zero. All roads lead from the tabernacle making the city easily navigated. Free tours of the grounds are offered in over 30 languages. Only chosen Mormons are allowed in certain areas, yet the guides are very committed and sincere while welcoming visitors. No smoking on these premises is appreciated. Downtown parking can be hectic at times.
Naturally, one may want to visit the Salt Lake. The lake is about a 30 minute drive from this HI; more or less depending on the traffic. The seven mile trip to Antelope Island is well worth one's time. The road to the island literally splits the lake's salinity content. Salt content is 3-4' deep on the bottom in some areas of the lake. Tune your radio to the AM station that gives you some brief but informative facts about the lake. Take the free tour of the original farm located on the island and read the history of the farm on snipets throughout the tour. There are approximatley 600 buffalo in addition to antelope, chukkers, and other birds. Be sure to take your binoculars, they will assist in locating the buffalo in the beautiful mountains. The buffalo are spread out among the mountains, but can be hard to see with the naked eye. Buffalo burgers are offered on the island and are quite tasty...not greasy like a hamburger.
This locale is a typical HI, but within minutes to the city's largest attractions.
