“Presidential Pizzazz”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 27, 2012

Our first visit to Anniversary Inn was memorable for many reasons -- the sunset view which was a panoramic frame of Salt Lake City, from the changing, color-splashed rays of the setting sun to the sparkling lights at night; the appointments of the spacious room, including a framed photo of "Honest Abe" on the bookshelf; the "waterfall" shower which was a delightful, wet, long-lasting massage; to the appetite-quenching breakfast in the morning. There was a peaceful tranquility -- from the time the TRAX line quit running -- (oh, there may have been a few knocks and squeaks from the headboard, but who was counting?). Overall, a wonderful experience with Presidential Pizzazz! Thank you.

Room Tip: Perhaps choose a room farther from TRAX line

We stayed here for ou anniversary and I was not impressed with the room itself. They do have some nice add ons (for an additional fee of course) like champagne glasses, roses, etc, which was a nice touch to celebrating our anniversary but I felt like maybe we should have stayed in a room that was more over the top. It was very simple, and I feel maybe didn'tprovide the whole anniversary inn experience the location is known for. For what we paid, I expected more.

This was a unique experience in a B&B. I surprised my wife with the "Enchanted Forest" room and it turned out to be a fun stay. When we arrived, the conceirge was friendly and helpful. We went up to our room and when we walked in we were greeted with a bed surrounded by trees and a enchanted wonderland forest! My wife was surprised and a little taken aback that there were trees in our room! The bath area had a very large two person jacuzzi with an interesting shower in the middle of the jacuzzi...not like any shower head...it "rains" on you and makes you feel like you're in a waterfall. The entire suite is made to look like a woddsman cottage and when you are in the bed you feel as though you are sleeping under the trees in the "enchanted forest". My wife said she felt like Snow White in a fairytale. The breakfast (delivered to our room) was flavorful and included fresh berries and very good coffee. The only downside for this property (and for most historical B&B's) is that our suite was on the third floor and there was no elevator to help with getting our bags up to our room.

I highly recommend this B&B in lieu of a hotel in the greater Salt Lake City area; if we visit the city again, we will definitely return to The Anniversary Inn.

My husband and I spent a night in the Cape Cod room for our anniversary in June. The ONLY reason I really wanted this room was for the aquarium that is over the bed (which is in a light house). I love aquariums and this sounded so awesome to be able to watch fish on the ceiling. Basically, the decor was horrible. the lighthouse where our bed sat, was extremely creative and cute but they didn't have the proper sheets to accommodate the bed, so they used two sheets to cover the bed so my husband and I ended up sleeping with different sheets all night. The aquarium was apparently broken because the ceiling above the bed was glass stones and pressed wood. I was SOOOOO disappointed! The decor was very cheesy, there was fake ivy and fish nets all of over the place with corny small decorations everywhere. The mural on the wall was beautiful and truly if they took out the cheesy sea decor and fake ivy and left a few cute pieces, the room would have looked a lot classier and romantic. There was a life saver above the TV which was broken in half, they should have thrown it away, and I stared at it all night, but I guess they think it looks good, I don't know. The tub area was beautiful, a large jacuzzi tub and rock wall, the shower is a water fall from the ceiling that flows right in the middle of the tub, but even when the shower wasn't turned on, water still dripped from it. Also, below the tub handles, part of the flooring (some sort of plastic coating) was peeling up and it looked murky and dirty or possibly moldy. The other extras were fabulous. The had our room ready with apple cider on ice ( the ice was melted and we checked in right when we could) but was warm. There was cheese cake in the fridge, which was delicious. Breakfast was served to our room, exactly on time and that truly was a wonderfully yummy breakfast of ham and cheese croissants, yogurt, juice and coffee. If the decor was up to par, it would have been a fabulous stay, but honestly I don't know if I'll ever go back because of the disappointment about the aquarium and bedding, it almost felt like false advertising to me. FYI, they lock the parking lot at 11 p.m., just be aware. Also, the front counter employees were very kind and hospitable.

Room Tip: I would recommend calling them first to make sure the room meets the expectations listed on their we...

My new bride and i stayed two nights in the lighthouse room for our honeymoon. It was very quiet, private and the perfect place to go! The breakfast was ok, i hoped for a more broad menu for the amount we paid.

We decided to stay at the Anniversary Inn on a whim for our 2nd Anniversary. We did not regret it! We stayed in Twilight the Meadow room. I am a Twilight fan but not obsessed. We mainly picked this room because it was by far the coolest looking and a new room.

It was a dimly lighted room and when we entered there was romantic music playing. We loved the room decor, the robes and the huge jetted tub complete with a waterfall shower!! Upon check-in there was fresh baked cookies! In the morning there was a very nice simple breakfast delivered to our door. We had a quiet and romantic stay! Our room was clean and very fun to stay in. However, it is a newly created room.

We visited the Anniversary Inn on 5th south for part of our honeymoon. We had overall a great time. We stayed in the Mysteries of Egypt and the Romeo and Juliet room and we loved both rooms! The only complaint would be that the bed in the Mysteries of Egypt room could have been a bit bigger/newer and it would be nice if the staff was a little more quiet in the morning.. No real need for a wake up call you really know when it is morning. We took a tour of the building and are already planning on a trip back. Make sure you ask about romantic rewards so that you can get a cheaper rate off of the next stay.
