In town for NYE and wanted to be able to participate in activities at Salt Palace and temple square. Perfect location and great price compared to competing and more expensive hotels. Parking is currently free but 6 blocks away via shuttle. We were fortunate to unload and then pick up car two days later on departure but would have been...

We stayed here three nights in December during a busy weekend. The hotel is convenient to the popular sires in SLC. Temple Square is a 4 minute walk. The room was very large and well laid out. The bed was comfy. Some late night revelers made it a bit noisy on the (12th) floor. The breakfast was sufficient. The only...

So after making reservations here over the phone...we arrived and the lady at the desk was very nice. Big problem right now was the parking is 6 blocks away because of the construction the hotel is under. So they have a shuttle (just 1) that runs to the parking lot 6 blocks away 24/7. You just call a number they...

Location, rooms, and staff were all fantastic. I won't ever stay here again until the parking situation is fixed. It is much to far away and the infrequent shuttle makes it impossible to time anything. The parking alone brought it down to 4 stars, but a missed day of house keeping brought it down to 3. I will stay here...

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.
