My husband and I stayed overnight at Hotel RL because our company party was being hosted there. We were placed in room 735 which is right by the elevator (noisy) and small. The bathroom was not cleaned well. There were splatters of something on the walls. The vanity in the bathroom was literally coming unglued and looked horrible. I felt...

Horrible customer service! They had a special where breakfast was included in room charge, but still charge your credit card for it. Took me two separate times calling to get this resolved. Rooms had dirty towels left in them and management would not take care of my complaint!!!

I wasn't looking very close at the address when I booked this reservation. I had remembered the Red Lion being in another location here in SLC. Not sure when the change was made but it was not the location where I had expected. Make sure you look at the address and location of the facility. Our television had to be...

I had one night at the newly renovated Red Lion in SLC. The new design is super upscale and classy and is in a great location in the city. I love the new feel of this classic hotel. Also, the beds are comfy and the restaurant downstairs has some yummy home cooking food!

I would stay here again. Very friendly and helpful people. Also, the hotel was well located within a short walk of all downtown attractions. The breakfast that went with the room price was very nicely prepared, though there were just a few selections.

Kitchen and cleaning staff were great, absolutely no complaints. However, I can not say the same for the front desk. There was a problem with my credit card and was rudely awoken bright and early Sunday morning. I couldn't understand what was happening with my credit card. It being Sunday and being from out of town (hence, why I stayed...

Need to fix the leaky faucet of bath tub, it has stained the tub rusty in color. The ceiling in the bathroom also shows water leakage or damage. The room and facility was so nice but you need to fix the small things before they get this bad.

This place is a wreck. It needs to be torn down. I remember staying there years ago when they had a club on the top floor. It's closed. They should have just closed the whole hotel too. They really tried to polish a turd. The entry was remodeled, they did some other minor updates to try to give it curb...

The beds were worn out and creaked with every movement. My room wreaked of stale cigarette smoke. The bathroom was equivalent to that of a Motel 6, and poorly lit. 10/10 would not recommend. The employees were by far the greatest aspect of this hotel with polite and professional service.
