Nice clean hotel in downtown. We were in salt lake for a volleyball tournament at salt palace, & this hotel is very convenient. Walking distance to diners & restos. Staff is accommodating & friendly 😊

We chose this hotel, because of the good rate, relative to other downton Salt Lake hotels. I wish we had looked at some other reviews before we booked. I have to say, that there was nothing wrong with the staff. We had good service there. When we got to our room, there was garbage and loose change under the curtains....

Stayed here for a business trip. It's in the middle of re-branding, and much of it has been renovated, but it's not quite there yet. Some of the power sockets in the room didn't work, which was a bit of a pain. I had a king room, and the bed was very comfortable. The room had a small fridge and...

This was a good value for being down town Salt Lake City. One thing I would suggest is to ask for a room that has no adjoining rooms. In our room we had one on either side of the room. It was very annoying. We could hear the people next to us very clearly. It sounded like they were in...

The hotel is renovated since the last time I was here but it's totally disjointed. It looks like they just got things to put in with no plans or design. And the front desk personnel were less then helpful and friendly. Just pretty rude to be honest. I would not stay here again if I have a choice. It is...

I have stayed at this hotel a number of times while in SLC. This is a decent hotel with reasonable prices. No frills or anything, just a bed and quiet sleep. They just went through an upgrade at this hotel so everything is somewhat modern. The only negative was that the hot tub not in operation most of our stay.

It's a really nice place to stay, and the room was super clean. But the bed was old and creaky, and the floors were bare and cold. I would stay there again if they would at least put some comfy beds in.

We saw this hotel online and it looked like a nice hotel because of the remodel. We booked it for Valentine's Day. Upon our check in we discovered our room smelled like mold but didn't think much of it because of the newly remodeled room.
