Oh, well.

This property needs a good refurbish. The location is great, but the hotel apperance and conditions do not match the surroundings. SLC is growing fast and beautiful and the hotel needs to step up.

Great Value

We spent three nights here over a long weekend. We arrived and departed in the middle of the night, but the night manager was up and very helpful. The rooms are clean and comfortable, much better than the outside of the hotel might suggest. Breakfast is decent and pool/treadmill are available, but we didn't use either. Easy walking distance from Temple or light rail public transport (free!).

Busses and light rail (TRAX) are free in the inner-city zone. Walk to the (TRAX) stop at "Arena" one block south or catch a bus on the same street corner as the hotel.

Experience lacking

A frustrating experience. I had phoned ahead to confirm the shuttle from the airport. I arrived and phone at 10:30, and they said the driver just left for the night. Breakfast was not great. Iron didn't work. But price was great.
