After extensive renovation this centrally located property is top rate. Currently it only offers parking some distance away with shuttle service available but the hotel is working towards a more convenient solution.The rooms are large ,very clean and have modern touches. The breakfast room is the best I've encountered at Holiday Inn Express hotels. It's a very short walk to...

We stayed for a holiday weekend for a family event. The hotel is very nice! Clean, comfortable, good food. The staff was friendly, however a big problem was the parking!!! There is no convenient parking. The lot is a good distance away, you have to get shuttled to the hotel from the parking. The lot is also not that safe...

Renovated older hotel centrally located to downtown SLC's shopping malls. Not as nice as most Holiday Inn Express hotels, but still a good budget choice for downtown SLC. I stayed one night with my family. What we were NOT TOLD is this...due to construction, parking is 6 blocks away. No notice on the Holiday Inn website, no notice by phone...

I stayed here for 5 nights to attend a conference. My conference was held at the Hilton Hotel, which was only a 2 minute walk away. The rooms were clean, cozy and had comfortable beds. All rooms include free WiFi. Free breakfast was served daily. Most of the staff were friendly. The breakfast staff weren't so friendly and didn't keep...

I stayed here for 7 nights because I was in town for a conference. The hotel is right across the street from Salt Palace Convention center and it's only a 20 minute walk to Temple square. The room was very nice and they even offer breakfast. The staff is very nice and helpful. I want to especially mention Isiah who...

I stayed 5 nights at this property in downtown SLC. It was convenient to the convention center and many restaurants. The room was updated, clean, and well-lit. Elevators were fast, which helped with me being on the 12th (top) floor. The view from my room was spectacular! The free breakfast was a real perk and was convenient (none of my...

Parking is 5 long blocks away with no lighting or security of any sort. When my wife arrived after dark she waited twenty minutes by herself for a shuttle to appear. The shuttle van did not have any hotel markings which only added to her worries. Fortunately the Polynesian driver was very nice so the crying was over before she...

We flew into Salt Lake City and stayed here overnight before driving to Jackson Hole and then we stayed there again 1 night to fly home the next day. Both nights were great, rooms were clean and they have a restaurant downstairs. They serve Breakfast and dinner. The food looked great, but we opted to eat a few blocks away.

Very nice room. The bed is comfy. The room very clean. The hotel nicely located. The staff friendly and polite. One strike on the parking as the garage is being renovated. I still recommend this location.

Why do I say this? Because the garage is not available, and you have to take (and wait for) a shuttle to an unsecured parking lot many blocks away. The lobby and rooms of this hotel are remodeled, modern, and fairly stylish--except for the bathtubs, which show the age of the property. The breakfast was the usual HIE, with expanded...
