“Totally da bomb!!”
Reviewed 31 July 2017 for a stay in July 2017

We were blown away by the over the top service Vincent and Ken provided! No hotel can or will ever match how pampered we were during our stay. I felt so at home. The house has awesome spaces. I love the decks! The view was spectacular! There's nothing like being able to look down on the city at night. I thoroughly enjoyed learning about Salt Lake from someone that actually lives there. I will always stay at the DeSoto Tudor while I'm in Salt Lake City. Vincent and Ken are the best hosts ever! They became great friends, too.

We enjoyed having you stay with us! It's fun to share our experiences here in Salt Lake and help people make the most of their time while they are here. Vincent has been in the hotel industry for a very long time and works hard to make each guest's stay the best they have ever experienced. We enjoyed sitting on the deck with you watching the thunderstorms roll in.... best view on Capitol Hill, right? You are welcome back any time!

“Exemplary Hospitality, quite simply the best of the best!”
Reviewed 30 July 2017 for a stay in June 2017

This Salt Lake City, Desoto Tudor on Capitol Hill is in a remarkable location. Whether you are seeking SLC Night Life or quick access to local attractions this is the premier place to stay. The living area includes private access to easily over 1000 sq ft of space including a superb, well provisioned kitchen, newly remodeled bathroom and bedroom, and living room. Also included is a fabulous patio area where you can sit at a table and view the mountains while enjoying your coffee, tea and breakfast and later on take a dip in the huge hot tub.
Ken and Vince (the owners) invited us during the evenings to the front porch for lively conversation with themselves and friendly neighbor passersby or if we desired they would respect our privacy to be alone, so I can say with absolute confidence this is a great place for all types of guest.
We had so much fun, and we'll visit again when the opportunity avails itself.
Best regards.
Tom & Eileen McConnell

Tom and Eileen - Your stay was memorable with us as well. It felt like we were visiting with family and enjoyed making your stay one of a kind. Our porch is always open to our guests, and you will get the opportunity to visit our friends as well. We are always aware that our guests come from many backgrounds, and sometimes they want their privacy, and we will honor that every time. We treat each guest as an individual, insuring that their needs and wishes are met beyond their imagination.

“Perfect”
Reviewed 28 July 2017 for a stay in July 2017

Ken and Vincent are amazing hosts. The apartment was perfect, with plenty of space. Private hot tub, a fully stocked kitchen, and fresh fruit bowls every morning. It's beautiful and worked out perfectly for our honeymoon.

We were blown away when Jennifer and her new husband pulled up in a vintage car after their wedding! We had no idea what a special occasion they had, and they choose to stay with us! We immediately went into celebration mode for them, making sure the hot tub space was private, with candles lit, and ready for them to enjoy. We knew this was a special time for them, and interacted with them when they came to us, leaving them as much space and privacy as they deserved! It was a pleasure to make their weekend special!

“Very comfortable stay and a personable experience with the hosts!”
Reviewed 27 July 2017 for a stay in July 2017

Vince and Ken were amazing hosts to me during my stay in their private home-turned-studio-suite accommodation. This was a much more personable experience than staying in one of downtown's run-of-the-mill standard hotels. Perched halfway up Capitol Hill, the location is ideally suited for a short walk to the Capitol Building, the Temple Square and most of the bar/restaurant scene in Downtown Salt Lake City. The private bedroom with attached bathroom accommodation itself was very comfortable and had everything catered to that I could think of. The host was highly respecting of my privacy and was extremely accommodating of my personal needs. We bonded on a personal level and they were very kind to let me carry food/snacks for my long road trip the next morning. I would definitely come stay at De Soto Tudor the next time I visit Salt Lake City!

Shek was a wonderful guest! He was personable and extremely fun to get to know. He had a long drive that day and needed some rest before continuing his drive the next day. We greeted him, showed him around the house, and then left him to relax and settle in. We knew he had a long drive ahead of him and made sure he had snacks, homemade brownies and fruit to take along with him. We got to make a connection with him as well, and enjoyed getting to know him and hear about his new adventure!

“Wonderful home away from home experience!”
Reviewed 18 July 2017 for a stay in June 2017

I loved staying here! Great location, very quick access to downtown Salt Lake City and the hospitality can't be beat! Vincent and Ken were so welcoming and friendly, it was truly a home away from home. I enjoyed peace and quiet in the suite space when I needed peace and loved having company a few stairs away to chat and laugh with. LOVED relaxing on the front porch with the guys and getting a chance to peacefully soak in the hot tub on my last night. I could go on and on about all of the great amenities available during my stay, they were all very much appreciated! You don't get hospitality and friendship like I experienced staying at a hotel!

Exactly what we want our guests to experience - the home away from home feeling! We enjoy making sure our guests KNOW they are welcome to visit with us any time during their stay, but can also hide away in their suite just to enjoy the peace and quiet, read a book, listen to music, or chat with their loved ones at home. The experiences we have with our guests are awesome and quickly a friendship is born.

“Location, style, comfort”
Reviewed 26 June 2017 for a stay in June 2017

We have used tripadvisior to book vacation rentals before. Usually, the owner meets the renter and away they go. But here at Desoto, you get Vince and his partner Ken. At Desoto, you get a BIG greeting, warm and inviting. You get a tour of the house and an introduction to the area if you need it. Vince is truly a professional host. He has lots of experience in the hospitality field. The apartment is very well laid out with a separate kitchen that is stocked like the club level at a Hilton. Nothing is overlooked. We had a critic about the choice of a full bed. 2 days later, an email with a picture of a new pillowtop queen. These guys care about their business. This is a rental you will love. We will always love to return to Desoto, but book early, this place is going to be tough to grab. Quality + Price= Value. Desoto is a great value in the heart of SLC. Ask them about the "Island of Italy". Thanks guys, this is why vacation rentals are fun

Mark and Gay, Thank you for the awesome review! Yes, we care about each of our guests and want their stay to be perfect. We appreciated the comment on the bed, and take the comments seriously. We want to exceed the Hiltons, Marriots, and all other places people can rest their heads. Just today, we got to hear about the "Island of Italy" It was a pleasure to get to know you both. Please come back any time, looking forward to getting to know you even better!

Had a fantastic stay with Vince and Ken. They were incredibly friendly and welcoming - and they have a beautiful home. I'd highly recommend them to anyone else looking to stay in SLC. I'll be back soon!
