We had a great stay at their appartment. They directly welcomed us like friends and had some good chats.
Their guest appartment is large, clean and you'll have your own bedroom, bathroom, livingroom and kitchen in the lower floor of the appartment of the house. It also has access to a balcony with a great view over salt lake city.
The breakfast was delicious and we had access to drinks and snacks in the fridge during our stay.
We would certainly stay again and recommend it to others.
We were blown away by the over the top service Vincent and Ken provided! No hotel can or will ever match how pampered we were during our stay. I felt so at home. The house has awesome spaces. I love the decks! The view was spectacular! There's nothing like being able to look down on the city at night. I thoroughly enjoyed learning about Salt Lake from someone that actually lives there. I will always stay at the DeSoto Tudor while I'm in Salt Lake City. Vincent and Ken are the best hosts ever! They became great friends, too.
This Salt Lake City, Desoto Tudor on Capitol Hill is in a remarkable location. Whether you are seeking SLC Night Life or quick access to local attractions this is the premier place to stay. The living area includes private access to easily over 1000 sq ft of space including a superb, well provisioned kitchen, newly remodeled bathroom and bedroom, and living room. Also included is a fabulous patio area where you can sit at a table and view the mountains while enjoying your coffee, tea and breakfast and later on take a dip in the huge hot tub.
Ken and Vince (the owners) invited us during the evenings to the front porch for lively conversation with themselves and friendly neighbor passersby or if we desired they would respect our privacy to be alone, so I can say with absolute confidence this is a great place for all types of guest.
We had so much fun, and we'll visit again when the opportunity avails itself.

Ken and Vincent are amazing hosts. The apartment was perfect, with plenty of space. Private hot tub, a fully stocked kitchen, and fresh fruit bowls every morning. It's beautiful and worked out perfectly for our honeymoon.
Vince and Ken were amazing hosts to me during my stay in their private home-turned-studio-suite accommodation. This was a much more personable experience than staying in one of downtown's run-of-the-mill standard hotels. Perched halfway up Capitol Hill, the location is ideally suited for a short walk to the Capitol Building, the Temple Square and most of the bar/restaurant scene in Downtown Salt Lake City. The private bedroom with attached bathroom accommodation itself was very comfortable and had everything catered to that I could think of. The host was highly respecting of my privacy and was extremely accommodating of my personal needs. We bonded on a personal level and they were very kind to let me carry food/snacks for my long road trip the next morning. I would definitely come stay at De Soto Tudor the next time I visit Salt Lake City!
I loved staying here! Great location, very quick access to downtown Salt Lake City and the hospitality can't be beat! Vincent and Ken were so welcoming and friendly, it was truly a home away from home. I enjoyed peace and quiet in the suite space when I needed peace and loved having company a few stairs away to chat and laugh with. LOVED relaxing on the front porch with the guys and getting a chance to peacefully soak in the hot tub on my last night. I could go on and on about all of the great amenities available during my stay, they were all very much appreciated! You don't get hospitality and friendship like I experienced staying at a hotel!
We have used tripadvisior to book vacation rentals before. Usually, the owner meets the renter and away they go. But here at Desoto, you get Vince and his partner Ken. At Desoto, you get a BIG greeting, warm and inviting. You get a tour of the house and an introduction to the area if you need it. Vince is truly a professional host. He has lots of experience in the hospitality field. The apartment is very well laid out with a separate kitchen that is stocked like the club level at a Hilton. Nothing is overlooked. We had a critic about the choice of a full bed. 2 days later, an email with a picture of a new pillowtop queen. These guys care about their business. This is a rental you will love. We will always love to return to Desoto, but book early, this place is going to be tough to grab. Quality + Price= Value. Desoto is a great value in the heart of SLC. Ask them about the "Island of Italy". Thanks guys, this is why vacation rentals are fun
