“Very nice hotel, perfect location, for a very good price!”
Reviewed 4 July 2014

I stayed two nights in this great hotel, in summer 2014. I booked via booking.com, a two queen bed room for 2 nights for $198. I almost wanted to book the close-by Radison as I wanted to stay in a really nice/comfortable/clean place and wasn't sure about the Salt Lake place given some reviews. Good that I still decided for this hotel besides some negative opinions(!). It was totally a perfect stay, in particular given the price, but mentioning the price sounds it was just a good deal, but it is also a great hotel. The staff at checkin was extremely friendly. Parking reasonably cheap ($5 per day).The room was large, very clean, the bathroom a bit smaller but . The room and bathroom appeared almost brand new (renovated). The location of the hotel is almost not worth being mentioned, still, it is just next (literally) to the huge temple, facing the city creek shopping mall and many pubs/restaurants are within talking distance (5-10min). The hotel (at least via the booking I did) included complimentary airport shuttle. Overall, I really enjoyed the stay. There is also a restaurant in or next to the hotel for breakfast etc. but I did not try that, as there are many alternatives like Eva's bakery for breakfast and the aforementioned choice of pubs/restaurants.

Dear reisenderhinundwiede,

Thank you for your review. Our customers define who we are! We are so pleased that your stay
was soooooo Nice. This is so encouraging to the staff and owners who try so hard to be the
best that we can.

Thanks for mentioning the complimentary shuttle form the Salt Lake International Airport. Taxi fare round trip runs around $ 50.00. When you factor that savings into the room rate, We really are The Best Hotel Value In Downtown Salt Lake City.

Right in the center of Salt Lake across from convention center and temple square. They have shuttle to airport. The rooms are very nice and staff is great. The concierge is there most of the time. Light rail stops in front so you probably don't need a car at all.

Room Tip: Parking is $5 Tell them if you are not going to use the room safe.

Great central location. Clean tidy smallish rooms. Well equipped. Our party was given 1 room in between the lifts! When we commented on this we were assured there was not normally complaints of noise from lift mechanisms. This room is replicated on many floors, beware.
We did find intrusive noise from the lifts as they operated. We were then offered the same room on a different floor!! After much insistence another room was found. It was a serious upgrade and given free so was appreciated.
We did not expect the noisy guest partying their way along the corridors in the early hours. Salt Lake is a famous religious town after all.
Breakfast service was lacking, but food good.

Room Tip: Avoid rooms near (and in between!) the 3 noisy lift shafts. Also many late night revellers still pa...

Dear LiveOutaBag,

Thanks for the positive comments about the hotel. The smaller room that you stayed in has
all the amenities of our standard and deluxe rooms at a smaller price.
These rooms are conveniently located near the elevators, which some guests appreciate.
Generally we do not get complaints about the noise outside these rooms. I believe that during your stay we were very busy and there was a lot of activity here at the Plaza as we were full.
I am happy that our front desk helped to assist you to a nice upgrade.

Room was a bit dated but clean and very spacious. Wi fi was very fast and reliable. Location of the hotel is very good, just 5 minutes from the town centre. A nice place to stay in Salt Lake City. We did enjoy our stay at the Salt Lake Plaza Hotel.

Dear patkiirc333,

Thanks for your review. Yes our deluxe and standard rooms are spacious. Each room has a beautiful view. Within the next 30 days the rooms will all be completely remodeled. Our location is so awesome....We are across the street form the Salt Palace Convention center, The worlds largest family research library, and Temple Square. Kitty corner across the street is the new City Creek Center with fabulous shopping and dining experiences. The Trax runs right in front of the Plaza Hotel and is free in the downtown area. We hope you will stay with us again.

Sincerely,
Vera

We looked at reviews for a nice night out. $200 was high for a suite, but with kids it's essential. Threadbare, 1980s, peach worn couches, once glorious, now weary. Don't stay here if Motel 8 or budget hotel is an option. Can't believe conditions

Dear Mathewneal,

I would agree that the 4 suites at the Plaza are dated. The suites are fully amenitized with a large Jacuzzi. The separate bedroom is private from the living room area. WE pride ourselves in the cleanliness of our Hotel and the rooms. We get many compliments about how clean the rooms are...
WE are currently at the tail end of a total remodel of the sleeping rooms. By August 1st,2014 our rooms will be newly renovated....and they are very nice. Unfortunately the suites are at the very end of the remodel project.. but when they are done they will be so nice!

We hope you will give us another try !

If you want to visit temple square this is the best location. This hotel is not the fanciest, the restaurant is not the best. But.... I cannot find anything that would keep me from coming back. Staff is extremely friendly and helpful. Rooms are spacious, clean but somewhat outdated . If you want fancy there is plenary of other hotels around, this seemed to be a honest value.

Dear Aussiebitz,

Thank you for your comments about our hotel. You are right! Our location is second to none when exploring Salt Lake City! And just for your future reference, we have been recently remodeling all of our guest rooms to give them a more modern look, a project expected to be completed before the end of the year!
So next time you're in town, give us a call and we would be happy to get you into one of the newer rooms! We'll see you next time!

Kind Regards,

I was VERY pleasantly surprised with this hotel and their accommodations. The first night we stayed in an economy room which was fine but not very spacious. I chose and booked this room and was figuring I would just have to grin and bare it. However, I spoke with Jeff at the front desk and he did some head scratching and was able to put my wife and I into a really beautiful room with a great view of SLC. I was really happy with the customer service I received from Jeff and the hotel. Customer service is dead, but not here. The hotel staff also recommended some good restaurants to us and they were very helpful. The room was great, the cleaning staff was excellent, very clean hotel. The best part about this hotel is its proximity to Temple square, the mall, and all sorts of entertainment. Great staff + Great location + Great customer service = GREAT hotel. I would definitely stay here again and I am picky. This was a great choice.

Dear jp_1674,

Thanks for taking the time to write this review. We appreciate you as a customer. By August of 2014 all the rooms at the Plaza Hotel will have been completely remodeled, Including the smaller cozy compact rooms. We do have 24 of these smaller rooms. They have all the amenities of our standard rooms, but at a smaller price. These rooms are perfect for some people, others would prefer a more spacious room. I am happy Jeff was able to upgrade you to a standard room.

Thanks for your comments,
