Easy to getting in and out of hotel!! Recommend to all!

Convenient location at the University of Utah campus. Came for a weekend to check out the U

Hotel was OK/average. .....................................................................................................................................................

People were great and very friendly. The room had Box Elder flies in it which they need to get rid of.

The perfect place to stay if you want to be close to the university about 1 1/2 miles away

Room wasn't overly clean and it seemed really old and dated for the amount of money we paid to stay there. Loved how close it was to University of Utah hospital. The front desk staff was great!

The hotel exceeded my expectations, although I should have known it would, being a Marriott. The location was perfect for a reunion of college classmates and was my first return to SLC in many years. The view of the Wasatch mountains from my window brought back many memories from my student days. The staff was wonderful!

conveniently located. loved the Starbucks in the building.

We stayed for 2 nights 10 days before Christmas! The hotel was so festive--hosting parties from the research park and the university on the lower level. The glass elevators went up the middle and the rooms were arranged on both sides around an open center area, where you could see from the lowest floor to the highest floor. The desk personnel were very friendly and helpful.The room was tastefully decorated and the bed was very comfortable. We could regulate the room temperature, so that we had a refreshingly cool night's sleep. It was located close to the wedding we were attending. Despite the parties and the openness, it was quiet. Exercise room was excellent and had a beautiful view. Breakfast was delicious!

Its was okay for the time we stayed there,they didn't make the hide a bed sofa when they knew there was going to be 3 people.

The hotel is close to the University of Utah hospital were I was visiting a family member. The hotel was very nice and clean. The staff was friendly and went out of their way to help me with transportation. I would definitely recommend this hotel and plan to stay here again my trip to Utah.

Staff was great. Hotel is bright and open. Kids loved swimming in pool and eating in restaurant. Only one complaint were the hard beds.

Well first of all, it's got amazing beds! Loveliest efficient staff.

Hotel service and food was fantastic, as was the shuttle service. Room had cobwebbs in the corners, bath mirror had age spots coming thru, toilet lid had several spots where the porcelin was missing and toilet leaked. Would not stay here again!

Except for the early morning evacuation for a gas leak, this hotel is a great place. This was my second visit. The rooms are clean, the staff is incredibly helpful and friendly, the architecture is unique and the setting is beautiful. It is very convenient to the University of Utah which is the reason we chose to stay here again. We did have a bit of an adventure being evacuated on a snowy morning but the staff handled the emergency well.

This was a clean hotel with an open plan and beautiful views. It is very convenient to the university and the downtown area while still being relaxed and beautiful.

Very nice place to stay. Beautiful rooms, nice restaurant and really comfortable beds!

I immediately noticed the cleanliness. Staying there made me feel very pampered. Great fitness room and very nice pool. Employees were very accomodating.

Our stay was very pleasant. Check-in was a breeze. We arrived a bit late, but the restaurant was still open and dinner was great. The room was lovely, and my 86 year-old mother-in-law was especially pleased. The bathroom was full of little extras that were fun. The beds were amazingly comfortable. We will come back just to ride the interesting glass elevator!

We reserved a king and had to endure a full size bed. But the desk clerk did find us a room 4 hours before check in time. We're grateful.
