“Friendly, fun place to stay !”
Reviewed September 16, 2017 for a stay in September 2017

The accommodation is great, Vince and Ken have a beautiful home which they truly share with their guests. It is right near the Capitol Building on a hill above the city.Every attention to detail makes your stay so enjoyable. They were so friendly and helpful going above and beyond to make my stay memorable, from the extensively stocked kitchen to the very comfortable bed..... Sunset on the deck was stunning - there is a fantastic view across the city. A free local bus is available to get down to the city centre (and back- it's some hill!) if you don't have your own transport. I spent some time exploring Temple Square - amazing buildings on a monumental scale .I had some family history research to do - the libraries are huge, full of microfilm and documents, and many volunteers keen to help you. I also found This is The Place pioneer park interesting - and took a trail ride, explored City Creek shopping mall, had a great time. I would highly recommend Vince & Ken as hosts - if you book with them you won't regret it !

“Best accomodation ever !!!”
Reviewed August 8, 2017 for a stay in June 2017

We can recommend this homestay to everyone who loves a cozy, luxury, friendly and very clean accomodation. Vince explained us a lot different thinks, gave good advices and drove us to the start of a hiking trip. The house is very close to the city-centre. You can also enjoy the beautiful view and relaxe in the jacuzzi. Every morning we got fresh fruit, a full fridge and a lovely smile. Thanks for everything. You made our holiday special.
Yours Julia and Philipp

“Great place to stay in Salt Lake City”
Reviewed August 6, 2017 for a stay in July 2017

Vincent and Ken are great hosts and very hospitable. We enjoyed our talks. The room (actually the downstairs floor) is great and very clean. We enjoyed the hot tub on the patio. We were also very thankful we could use the washing machine and the kitchen to prepare some food. The fridge was filled with yummie things for breakfast. We highly recommend this place to stay in Salt Lake City!

“perfect appartment in salt lake city”
Reviewed August 1, 2017 for a stay in July 2017

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.

“Totally da bomb!!”
Reviewed July 31, 2017 for a stay in July 2017

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.

We enjoyed having you stay with us! It's fun to share our experiences here in Salt Lake and help people make the most of their time while they are here. Vincent has been in the hotel industry for a very long time and works hard to make each guest's stay the best they have ever experienced. We enjoyed sitting on the deck with you watching the thunderstorms roll in.... best view on Capitol Hill, right? You are welcome back any time!

“Exemplary Hospitality, quite simply the best of the best!”
Reviewed July 30, 2017 for a stay in June 2017

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.
Best regards.

Tom and Eileen - Your stay was memorable with us as well. It felt like we were visiting with family and enjoyed making your stay one of a kind. Our porch is always open to our guests, and you will get the opportunity to visit our friends as well. We are always aware that our guests come from many backgrounds, and sometimes they want their privacy, and we will honor that every time. We treat each guest as an individual, insuring that their needs and wishes are met beyond their imagination.

“Perfect”
Reviewed July 27, 2017 for a stay in July 2017

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.

We were blown away when Jennifer and her new husband pulled up in a vintage car after their wedding! We had no idea what a special occasion they had, and they choose to stay with us! We immediately went into celebration mode for them, making sure the hot tub space was private, with candles lit, and ready for them to enjoy. We knew this was a special time for them, and interacted with them when they came to us, leaving them as much space and privacy as they deserved! It was a pleasure to make their weekend special!
