The ceiling is jaw-dropping gorgeous! Building is fun to walk through and to explore all of the fancy restored rooms. There is a chapel inside! The Garden Room restaurant at the top, where you can look out and see the city and temple from above,is yummy with great service.

Interior of the building is very interesting. You can also get to the top floor. View from there is nice but nowhere near places like NYC or Las Vegas.

This building has been beautifully preserved and repurposed to keep an active and contributing building in the center city. One can sit in the lobby and enjoy the quiet ambiance will taking in the art and architecture. There is a cafe on the first floor where you can grab an inexpensive but very good breakfast or lunch.

Part of the buildings original function continues, as a hotel it hosted many marriage receptions, and that function continues today. It also continues to host business functions and events. If you want something more substantial to eat you can go up to the tenth floor and eat in the casual Garden restaurant or the more formal The Roof restaurant.

In another part of the building there is a Family History research area where you can learn how to find your ancestors or view a movie free movie about Joseph Smith.
