We saw this hotel online and it looked like a nice hotel because of the remodel. We booked it for Valentine's Day. Upon our check in we discovered our room smelled like mold but didn't think much of it because of the newly remodeled room. We left the air on thinking it would help with the humidity and smell in...

I thought I wrote all this, but here we go again... Though the pillows were some of the most comfortable I've experienced, the bed wasn't quite comfortable enough for my back, and sleep was slow in coming. The first time. At 1:30 the noisy voices we'd heard earlier in the hall woke us. I attempted to call the front desk...

Worst hotel I have ever stayed at. Don't be fooled. This hotel is old, run down and dirty. Complete with mold on the side of the toilet, spots on the ceiling, and dirty vents. The rooms are painted brown with no lighting for a reason. Some rooms don't even have mattress pads.....just a sheet on the mattress! Added feature is...

I am really hesitant to review any business in a negative way and always try to find the positives. However, this review will contain some unfavourable opinions though based in 1st hand experience and not heresay. I will start with the positives: - 10 to 15 mins walk to the Salt Palace Convention Center - pleasant staff - decent restaurant...

This hotel has potential and is a bit off the beaten path. It appears as if they ran out of funds to complete the renovation of this property. Some of the hotel looks old and decrepit and some of it looks to be newly renovated. The hotel lobby is the first impression everyone gets and it is not a pleasant...

Dear gleon1011, Thank you for reviewing your recent stay. The hotel is a phased project and most items should be completed this year. I'm sorry the staff seemed stressed, it is a busy hotel and can get a bit hectic at times. We do hope you see you again in SLC. Sincerely, Nikki S AGM

BOTTOM LINE UP TOP: if your decision to lodge here is based on the promise of cool luxury conveyed by the look and feel of the slick website photos, you'd better lower your expectations now. There's a big disconnect between what's pictured on the website and what's delivered on the ground. On the plus side: my room and the common...

Dear chachi69, Thank you for your review and I appreciate your candidness. The hotel is in the process of a phased renovation. While the public spaces are finished (Restaurant, Lounge, Lobby and Game Room) the hotel rooms still have elements that are coming. As for the reception, I know it is untraditional but we are moving to an iPad interfacing...

Booked for one night just to see how it was, and stayed the entire three days. It's a "new" way of hoteling that is most welcoming. Minimalistic on the surface, yet anything you want is totally available. Great way to cut operating costs WITHOUT cutting customer service.

We arrived and were greeted in lobby without a front desk...they are going to have sign-in kiosks in the near future but still had real live people there. Our room was on the 7th floor and had a nice view. No rugs yet, but the heater worked great. The king bed was very comfortable and pillows were perfect. Although the...

Got stuck here for 5 days on business. Where do I start?! The room was "renovated" but had mold stains and carpet stains throughout. The Bedding was incomplete, meaning there were NO SHEETS! Just a comforter and the mattress on one of the beds in my room. Without turning on the heat, my room reached nearly 90 degrees and I...
