I love the rebranding. The downstairs (entry/reception, bar, restaurant, lounge) looks great. Service has been friendly. My room is clean. The TV is very big, with a remote that actually works. The temperature is good and I like the decor and "wood" floors. My big problem-- and loss of 2 stars-- is for the bathroom. I liked the toiletries. Here...

I loved the modern industrial look of the Lobby. The lobby had orange infused and lemon infused water. I chose it over the other similar hotels because they advertised free bicycle rentals. Which is true, however I was disappointed only one was actually working and the others were being used as display only. The staff was friendly. We got the...

We attended a large gathering on Easter weekend and this was the selected hotel. The hotel did pick us up at the airport with shuttle service, which was nice. Upon entering the lobby I felt like a was in a Seattle coffee house, not a hotel. There were flight crews milling around and several people sitting on a multi level...

Gailybird, Thank you for your recent stay and review of the Hotel RL SLC. We are disappointed to hear that your stay was less than what you expected.

I travel for a living and I have been to many hotels, but I can honestly say that Kaitlyn at the concierge makes traveling relaxing.

Regardless of the stars given this is NOT a 3 star hotel. Do not get your hopes and expectations up for a nice place to stay. Our stay was a constant state of confusion and you shouldn't have to constantly call the front desk for info that should have been readily available in the rooms. We should have stayed somewhere...

Seriously. I think an earlier review nailed it with 'makeup on a pig'. The pros? The food in the little restaurant was VERY good. Burger for him and quiche for me and both were fine. We got them to go. Now, we were on a 'dog' floor with our pups which was fine, $15 per pup. And that's a good...

We checked in at the crew area and were greeted with the nicest smile and warm welcome. We won crew of the day which was such a nice treat after a very long day.
