“Convenient”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 4, 2014

Hotel is currently being remodeled. Would like to see exhaust fan in bathroom, as the room gets very steamy! But overall, it is a great place to stay. The staff is great, rooms are always neat and tidy. The location is very convenient to shopping and dining with everything I need within walking distance. I will return.

Thanks for your comments.WE agree with you and so many of our customers that are location is so convenient to some of the most visited tourist attractions in Salt Lake City. We apologize about the steamy bathroom. The owners are at the tail end of a complete remodel of all the guest rooms. Each bathroom will also be connected to the exhaust fans on the roof of the hotel. We will be happy to have you stay with us again.

Sincerely,

Roger Workman

We stayed here for 2 nights and were very pleased with the accomodation . We were in a newly refurbished room and for the price we paid(around $100/night) we thought it was very good value. The staff were all helpful and friendly and location is perfect -close to the mall, temple etc. The shuttle from the airport was a bonus but flying in from overseas having change to make the call for pickup was difficult..... It would have been even better if we could have arranged for them to pick us up at a set time. My only slight gripe was having to pay to use the safe in the room. This is done on an honesty basis in that they just ask you when you leave if you have used it. I would rather just have this cost included in the room rate. Of course you can always say you haven't used it! All up a very nice stay and we would return if ever in SLC again

I stayed two nights in this great hotel, in summer 2014. I booked via booking.com, a two queen bed room for 2 nights for $198. I almost wanted to book the close-by Radison as I wanted to stay in a really nice/comfortable/clean place and wasn't sure about the Salt Lake place given some reviews. Good that I still decided for this hotel besides some negative opinions(!). It was totally a perfect stay, in particular given the price, but mentioning the price sounds it was just a good deal, but it is also a great hotel. The staff at checkin was extremely friendly. Parking reasonably cheap ($5 per day).The room was large, very clean, the bathroom a bit smaller but . The room and bathroom appeared almost brand new (renovated). The location of the hotel is almost not worth being mentioned, still, it is just next (literally) to the huge temple, facing the city creek shopping mall and many pubs/restaurants are within talking distance (5-10min). The hotel (at least via the booking I did) included complimentary airport shuttle. Overall, I really enjoyed the stay. There is also a restaurant in or next to the hotel for breakfast etc. but I did not try that, as there are many alternatives like Eva's bakery for breakfast and the aforementioned choice of pubs/restaurants.

Dear reisenderhinundwiede,

Thank you for your review. Our customers define who we are! We are so pleased that your stay
was soooooo Nice. This is so encouraging to the staff and owners who try so hard to be the
best that we can.

Thanks for mentioning the complimentary shuttle form the Salt Lake International Airport. Taxi fare round trip runs around $ 50.00. When you factor that savings into the room rate, We really are The Best Hotel Value In Downtown Salt Lake City.

Right in the center of Salt Lake across from convention center and temple square. They have shuttle to airport. The rooms are very nice and staff is great. The concierge is there most of the time. Light rail stops in front so you probably don't need a car at all.

Room Tip: Parking is $5 Tell them if you are not going to use the room safe.

Great central location. Clean tidy smallish rooms. Well equipped. Our party was given 1 room in between the lifts! When we commented on this we were assured there was not normally complaints of noise from lift mechanisms. This room is replicated on many floors, beware.
We did find intrusive noise from the lifts as they operated. We were then offered the same room on a different floor!! After much insistence another room was found. It was a serious upgrade and given free so was appreciated.
We did not expect the noisy guest partying their way along the corridors in the early hours. Salt Lake is a famous religious town after all.
Breakfast service was lacking, but food good.

Room Tip: Avoid rooms near (and in between!) the 3 noisy lift shafts. Also many late night revellers still pa...

Dear LiveOutaBag,

Thanks for the positive comments about the hotel. The smaller room that you stayed in has
all the amenities of our standard and deluxe rooms at a smaller price.
These rooms are conveniently located near the elevators, which some guests appreciate.
Generally we do not get complaints about the noise outside these rooms. I believe that during your stay we were very busy and there was a lot of activity here at the Plaza as we were full.
I am happy that our front desk helped to assist you to a nice upgrade.

Room was a bit dated but clean and very spacious. Wi fi was very fast and reliable. Location of the hotel is very good, just 5 minutes from the town centre. A nice place to stay in Salt Lake City. We did enjoy our stay at the Salt Lake Plaza Hotel.

Dear patkiirc333,

Thanks for your review. Yes our deluxe and standard rooms are spacious. Each room has a beautiful view. Within the next 30 days the rooms will all be completely remodeled. Our location is so awesome....We are across the street form the Salt Palace Convention center, The worlds largest family research library, and Temple Square. Kitty corner across the street is the new City Creek Center with fabulous shopping and dining experiences. The Trax runs right in front of the Plaza Hotel and is free in the downtown area. We hope you will stay with us again.

Sincerely,
Vera

We looked at reviews for a nice night out. $200 was high for a suite, but with kids it's essential. Threadbare, 1980s, peach worn couches, once glorious, now weary. Don't stay here if Motel 8 or budget hotel is an option. Can't believe conditions

Dear Mathewneal,

I would agree that the 4 suites at the Plaza are dated. The suites are fully amenitized with a large Jacuzzi. The separate bedroom is private from the living room area. WE pride ourselves in the cleanliness of our Hotel and the rooms. We get many compliments about how clean the rooms are...
WE are currently at the tail end of a total remodel of the sleeping rooms. By August 1st,2014 our rooms will be newly renovated....and they are very nice. Unfortunately the suites are at the very end of the remodel project.. but when they are done they will be so nice!

We hope you will give us another try !
