Oh, let’s admit it. Salt Lake City is not the most scintillating destination. But after an interminable 11-hour drive from the San Francisco Bay Area, the Hotel Monaco was like an oasis of elegance and hipness in the middle of this desert. It’s like the anti-Salt Lake City. The public rooms are colorful, tasteful, sensuous. The fun continues in the rooms. We booked the Monte Carlo suite and arrived road-weary with our dog. The staff was gracious and welcoming – moments after the bellman left, housekeeping arrived with a doggie bed and food/water bowls. Hats off to the interior designers because the rooms decorated with a plethora of colors and patterns that is pure genius. Whimsical but elegant. It’s all in the details and unlike cookie-cutter chain hotels, Kimpton pays attention to small but important touches. Like a jogging map of Salt Lake City, multi-plug cords on top of the desk, roomy animal print bath robes, a stereo (music playing when we arrived – nice touch). The Monte Carlo suite has a huge bathroom with jetted bath and water temperature selector. Great after a long day on the road. Sign up ahead of time for the Kimpton In-Touch membership and get free wifi. I highly recommend this hotel – its right up there with Portland’s Hotel Lucia but much more luscious.
