This place was amazing! I took a trip to visit the Family History Library to do genealogy research and this small room (Kodachrome) was perfect for some solo mom time. Loved that tub! Eileen and Sarah were so helpful and welcoming. They really made me feel at home and at ease. The breakfasts were wonderful and there was tea, coffee & cookies set out in the evenings. The reading rooms had fireplaces that were often lit and these were nice to unwind beside writing postcards or reading magazines before trundling off to bed.
The Inn on the Hill really is on a hill, so it took me a few days to get my legs (guess I'm not in as good of shape as I thought ;) but everything really is within walking distance. Harmons grocery store is SUPER nice and has hot foods, fresh baking and prepared sandwiches if you are looking for something to eat other than a restaurant. They also have free wifi and a seating area upstairs. Macy's, Nordstroms and a slew of other shops in City Creek Centre are within walking distance. The mall also has wireless.
During two days it snowed/rained, so Eileen & Sarah lent me an umbrella. They also let me use a compter to print off my boarding passes and another document I needed. They were willing to lend me stamps (but I preferred to walk to the post office myself) and even looked up the closest used book store (Eborn Books on Main) for me. I really felt that their willingness to assist in making my stay wonderful was a big part of the pleasure of this trip. The other was the gorgeous building and attention to detail. The owners of this inn obviously know what they are doing. There is nothing that could be said bad about this place. While in my room, I did not hear any other guests. I did hear people outside walking by, but from the other guests, I didn't hear a peep. The walls must be so solid. The decor was tasteful and honoured rather than detracted from the period of the house. Aveda toiletries, mints on the pillows, fluffy robes & towels... It's all there.
Hoping for another reason to one day come back and enjoy this place again. I will be telling everyone I know who is travelling to SLC to book here.
