We are very lucky to be in the best part of Downtown SLC, close to all the shopping and restaurants. We are glad you enjoyed the continental breakfast! Next time you are in Salt Lake we hope you will stay with us again.

Close to everything downtown, staff were helpful, parking garage was being renovated but they had a shuttle to the other parking site. They did say the renovation was almost complete. Breakfast in the morning was free and very good. Was my second time staying here and my third will be soon hopefully.

Complete Nightmare

Posted Dec 1, 2016
This hotels parking garage was under construction, so they had a park our car in a parking lot 4 blocks away from the hotel. Sometime during the night someone broke the back window out of my car and stole everything in my car. We had just gone Christmas Shopping. So $850 worth of new merchandise was stole, My car was not the only car that had been broken into that morning. The motel has not done anything to make this right. They won't even reimburse me for the cost of the room. I will NEVER stay at a Holiday Inn Express again.

Miserable Parking Issue

Pros: Great clean rooms and the breakfast was very good.
Cons: As I said a smoother, better was to get people on the shuttle in the morning when it is so busy.
The parking was under going renovations so we had to take a shuttle and be picked up 6 blocks away. That could have worked, but is wasn't organized. we were told we would be picked up at the front door but, unbeknownst to us, the van was stopping at a door further down and taking people to their cars. We were late and completely missed a class we had signed up and paid for. There should have been a clearly marked sign to show were the shuttle was picking up passengers, it would have saved a lot of issues.

Pros: They had an awesome free breakfast! It was clean and in a good location.
Cons: Parking was under construction so we had to park blocks away and wait for a free shuttle. Not horrible, but inconvenient for sure.

All good except parking lot under renovation which was not posted on your website. When we arrived we learned parking was 4 blocks away. They offered shutter service but the process was inconvenient & time consuming.

I had to book a hotel at the last minute for a convention and luckily this hotel had a room or two left. I received exceptional customer service and was booked into a very clean and presentable room. The bed was so comfortable and the rooms were very quiet, even being located closer to the elevator. Also, this hotel is right across from the Salt Palace Convention Center which is right where I needed to be all week. Very impressed.
