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 !
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.

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!
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.
