We booked this hotel for a family ski vacation. We come to Salt Lake City yearly, so we have stayed at quite a few places. However, we booked late and had to find a new place. This year, the Residence Inn was our choice. The rooms are nice, but very, very dark, and you are right off a freeway, so it can get noisy. We were looking forward to cooking a few meals in the condo, as it is equiped with a full kitchen. YAY! One problem, the fan above the stove wasn't working, stunk up the condo, there weren't any proper cooking pans, not even a baking sheet? I called front desk, as I am sure people put stuff in the oven. What are they suppose to use? Her response. NOPE. we don't have pans.
Luckily, Target is close by, so we went and bought our own pans and supplies. Left them here, so hopefully the next person can use them?
The pool is nice and warm, the hot tub is very hot. The breakfasts are very nice...lacking in healthy options and I cringe seeing everything on disposable styrofoam plates, disposable cutlery, glasses...all thrown in a huge trash can. WHERE IS THE RECYCLING? In fact , we would love to see a Recycling bin in the room, as 90% of our garbage could have been. We are use to recycling everything back home, so this was hard for us- producing so much garbage.
The gym in the main buidling is very small, but the machines are great. I finally found out there was a gym in the second building, which had more choices and much larger. I am a fitness trainer, so I would have liked to have known that they offer access to the Golds Gym...that was never mentioned to us, but I just read it on here.
They had evening cocktails, 3 days of the week- Mon-Tues-Thurs. Ran out of food, and again, most of it was unhealthy, fried, chips, etc...and again, all on disposable dishes. SO we opted to eat in, or out at local restaurants. Lots of eating choices in the area....ask at front desk, as they were very helpful and found us reservations.
Maid service wasn't great. In fact she didn't even come one day. If she does come, she made the beds and gave us new towels. That was it.
The location is great, as you are within walking distance to Target for supplies, and a short walk to a nice mall.
