“Genealogy Research”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 April 2012

Went to Salt Lake City to do some family history research, this hotel was right next door to the Family History Library. The hotel picked us up from the airport. The staff was always pleasant and very helpful. They gave great advice on restaurants in walking distance. The took us to the grocery store because the rooms have microwaves and refrigerators. The rooms were a little dated but very clean. I would definitely stay here again.

Just returned from a wonderful visit to Salt Lake City for my first family history research. My friend and I found an online offer for a 4 night stay for the price of 3 nights for family researchers. The price was wonderful!!! The room was nice but dated. The beds were very comfortable. There was a small fridge and microwave. The front desk staff were warm and very helpful. We found it seemed the longer we were in the room, however, the maid service forgot things..The last night we had no coffee cups left for our morning coffee. Some cups were left with beverages in them after we came back at the end of our day. Our ice bucket that we filled each eve was emptied each day. The last day there were no liners left for us to refill. My friend left a nice tip each day for the maid service. I thought we would get some extra TLC but that didn't seem to make a difference. The room had heat/cool air available but it would have been great to have the availability to just have a fan mode to just move the air in the room without heating the room or cooling the room. Shuttle service is available for airport service. That was very handy. A light rail is right outside of the hotel and will have service to the airport in the future. We were told by our shuttle driver that the hotel is due to be overhauled in the near future from the lobby to the rooms. It was great to hear that the hotel recognizes the upgrades that need to be made.

Room Tip: We stayed in a room overlooking the light rail. Even though the room was right outside the rail it...

While this place might not look like a lot from the outside, and while you might be nervous because it's been around awhile...I was pleasantly surprised with what I found and we will be back. Rooms were a little dated, but clean. Bed linens can be completely washed - duvets instead of bedspreads give you a fresh, clean feeling when you're ready to crash. Our room was upgraded at no additional charge, and the customer service was very pleasant and prompt. The best thing about this hotel is the proximity to everything you'd want to visit - walking distance to EVERYTHING that downtown SLC has to offer. A hidden gem!!!

We were in Salt Lake for a conference that was being held at the Hilton. The Hilton was going to charge us $100 more and not include breakfast, a shuttle, or wifi, so we looked at other options and found the Plaza. So happy we did!!

We had a 2 Queen Bed room for $139/night that included breakfast vouchers for both of us for every night we stayed. The vouchers were good for the breakfast buffet + a beverage in the restaurant downstairs (tip extra). It was not the healthiest food, but convenient and a good selection. The staff across the board - restaurant, shuttle, desk - was super nice.

The room was also huge, with both a desk and a table, which was really great for two business travelers sharing a room who both needed space for their laptops!

There was a hot tub we never got around to using and a pool that was closed for the winter, so, I can't comment on those. Shuttle service saved us some money and picked us up and dropped us off right when we wanted.

There is a bit of noise from the light rail if you stay on that side of the building, but, I live in a city, so I'm use to ambient city noise. Actually, I'm really annoyed that we had an awesome deck but the door was bolted shut! I would have loved to open my door to get fresh air! That's my only major complaint!

The only thing to love about this hotel is the location. I was there for a convention so perfect from that. Also, right across from Temple Square. $129.00 for my room. Very similar class of hotel to a Holiday Inn Express, but a little more run down (try sitting on the lobby furniture) and no free breakfast. Problems with my heater - it seemed to be all or nothing so I either froze or was too hot. My colleague's room had a better model though, so ask for another room if you are there in freezing weather and have the old style heater.

The hotel is decent, the rooms are clean, the staff is kind and helpful, and the pool is decent. The only reason I stayed here was so that I could walk just around the corner (literally about 50 steps) to visit the Genealogical Library to do research. I will continue staying here for the excellent value and prime location, but will never get excited to stay here solely for the hotel itself.

We arrived at the SLC airport weary with travelling for over 20 hours, a quick call from the courtesy phone saw us being whisked away in the hotel shuttle shortly after landing. This is a great service, although not strictly 'free' when you give a gratuity.

We were so tired we probably would have slept on a barbed wire fence but the beds were like clouds and the room so quiet we slept for nearly 12 hours. The room itself was roomy enough to take our two large suitcases plus a snowboard bag and some other carry-on luggage. It was beautifully presented and clean.

The location was terrific, there's a few restaurants nearby as well as the whole Mormon Mecca thing just over the road. We enjoyed watching the Mormon Tabanacle Choir and orchestra practice for their broadcast on Sunday morning - which was a treat - whatever you believe they are sublime.

This would make a great base if you were skiing the resorts around SLC as the rates were fabulous (we paid $79.00 p/n).

Bottom line is this is nothing fancy but it is good value and easy to recommend.
