quick trip to see univerity of Utah for my son

The hotel is very elegant. I loved our view of the snow capped mountains. It was fun to see our view of the mountains and the city at sunrise through sunset. Seeing the city lights glistening on the mountainside at night was a good way to end the evening. On the practical side my son could jump on mass transit, right outside the door, and get to the university,

Great hotel!

The only true 5 star hotel in SLC. Only thing i would complain about is that they do not put coffee maker in room unless you ask. Otherwise a great hotel.

Valentine Day Dream

Can't believe I was able to get such a great deal on the busiest day of the year, Valentine's Day. We loved it so much, we booked a second night through Cheap Tickets and were able to keep our same room. Thanks Cheap Tickets. You're the only way to go.

Great service and beautiful spacious rooms

Loved this hotel. The rooms were very spacious and the bathroom was exceptional. The bathroom was so large and private that I didn't have to disturb my wife in the morning when I got up early to go down to the lounge for morning coffee. When we came in from skiing there were chocolate chip cookies waiting in the lounge for a nice treat.
