    Historical Traveler Reviews Marriott Salt Lake City City Center

    Great Choice! A Great Marriott!!


    This hotel is excellent-new building (or at least looks new); definitely one of the nicer Marriotts. I stayed here for 5 days over Thanksgiving in November 2004. My boyfriend works for Marriott, and I travel a lot, so I see a lot of Marriotts (they vary dramtically in quality) and this is definitely a nice one!


    The hotel is new and beautiful. The decor/lobby/common areas are all impressive. This is easily a four star hotel. There is a gift shop with quality, not tacky items. There is also a separate convenience store with magazines, and tourist items. Oh, and a full service Starbucks is attached to the lobby. Oh, and a nice restaurant. I ate there once, can't remember the name. The food was good and the service was great.

    Cleanliness and Rooms:

    I'll start by admitting that I am quite picky in terms of cleanliness. You can often tell immediately how clean a room is by looking at the bathroom. It was not only very clean but absolutely beautiful. The rooms are very clean, and the decor is beautiful and updated. No tacky here. The bed was super comfortable. I had a room on one of the top floors (the hotel is about 10-12 floors tall if I recall correctly) that overlooked the back of the hotel; a nice view of the city and the ice ring behind the hotel). The hotel was nice and quiet.

    Room Service:

    Room service staff was great. I ordered almost all of meals through room service and ordered breakfast every morning. At first I was apprehensive because breakfast was about 10-14 dollars. But the portions are large for breakfast and the quality is excellent.


    The staff was extremely accomodating and friendly/polite. I was there five days and did NOT come across one rude staff member.


    There is a transport service that you can use (desk is in baggage claim area of airport) to get to hotels and to Park City that is cheaper than a cab. You can also ask the desk at the hotel to arrange from that service to pick you up at a certain time. The valet guys can call you a cab to the airport which will run about $16-20 one way. The hotel seemed very well located although I didn't do much site seeing. There are two malls, a Nordstrom, and a Rite-Aid within easy walking distance. Federal and state courthouses also within easy distance. Kinkos and Fed Ex across the street.

    Only one negative - While ironing a silk blouse of mine (an iron and ironing board come in every room), rusty water came out of the iron and stained my shirt. This was due to water sitting in the iron too long. When I called down to complain, the front desk apologized and immediately sent someone up with a brand new in the box iron for me to use. I ended up getting most of the stain out so I didn't complain further.

    All in all would definitely return to this hotel if I ever go back to Salt Lake City. Very pleasant and comfortable stay!

    Great Hotel, Excellent Location


    We stayed one night at the Marriott and were really impressed. The check-in was smooth and we got the room we asked for. The view - whilst not important - was slightly disappointing as it overlooked a large flat roof and not much more. The valet parking was amongst the fastest I have ever used! Great location right in the heart of the city on the same street as the Utah Capitol, and a stone's throw from Temple Square.

    Nice business hotel


    Hotel was a nice business hotel with excellent service. Rooms were new and in good shape. The location is excellent.

    I would stay here in preference to the Salt Lake Hilton, which I also have stayed at. Probably the second nicest hotel in Salt Lake - the Monaco, at which I didn't stay, looked nicer.

    Wonderful service


    And the weekend rates are great!

    Rooms are spacious and well appointed, including free high speed internet access. The service staff were all friendly and anxious to serve and to please. All in all, I had a great experience staying at this hotel.

    Great Customer Services


    We stayed in this hotel the last day in our cross country trip. The service was wonderful and the staff in the front desk was very helpful. He asked us whether we need help on dinner arrangement and gave us temporary membership to go to the private lounge for dinner. It was my husband's birthday and we did have a great time in the restaurent, Market Oyster Bar. he suggested and " sponsored us to go.

    It was a wonderful stay and we highly recommed the hotel.

    I Didn't Want to Leave!


    I love Marriott Hotels in general, but this one is my favorite so far. I stayed here in Mid July and my room was exquisite. Plush, comfortable bedding, excellent maid service who seemed to instinctively know what needed to be discarded and what needed to be left alone. I ate breakfast at the restaurant downstairs and, though it was pricey, it was very good and the wait staff excellent. Dynamic view of the mountains, convenient location, and unsurpassed fitness facilities. My hotel was the best part of my trip to Salt Lake City. I couldn't wait to get back to my room every night and hated when I had to leave.

    Classy Marriott, better than a lot of other hotels


    Stayed Dec 3-5. Stayed on the concierge level on the 12th floor and had a fantastic view of the Galveston Center. There is an ice rink in the center, so we had an unobstructed view of all the ice skaters and the festive, holiday decorations. In town, great places to eat like P.F. Changs, Hotel Monaco, bistros, etc. for $15-$25 a plate, quarter parking, valet parking avail. Starbucks is in the lobby if you want to grab a hot chocolate on the way out. Marble stands and updated furnishings, all granite bathrooms including the shower. Things to see and do: Salt Lake City Temple Christmas lights (free), Carriage ride (around $35 for 1/2 hour, 4 people can fit in a carriage), Gateway Mall is right in town too (it's outdoors) and they have a fun water show, there are also 2 downtown enclosed malls (ZCMI and Crossroads) for any shopping (parking about $1 for an hour, etc). Cheap food abounds if you don't need anything fancy, just taste, like Little World for Chinese, Soup Kitchen for soup and sandwiches, Cafe Rio for Mexican, all not too far away, parking is free. Sugarhouse area is not too far off, and has shops, cafes, and food as well, parking is free. Recommend going to Ensign Peak for a beautiful view of the city. There are paths to walk on. I also recommend Capitol Park. It's absolutely gorgeous in my opinion. Both are quiet and clean and well kept. Parking is free and easy. Service was great. I was paying at a big discount and the front desk was always polite, well informed, and kind. We did valet parking since it was only 2 dollars more a day, and they were always prompt and courteous. They were always offering to get us directions, etc. All in all, a great stay.

    Great Stay in SLC!!


    We stayed here on Friday night, Sept. 10th and booked through priceline. We couldn't have beat the price at $45 night. We received a King room (we had requested a double but they did not have any available) on the 4th floor. The room overlooked Gallivan Plaza and was west facing with lots of light. The room was an extremely nice "business" type room with all the usual amenities, including an in-room safe. While the front desk could not accomodate our request for a double room they very promptly brought up a very comfortable roll away for our 5 year old son. The indoor pool was nice with plenty of chairs and towels but a heck of alot of chlorine.

    We had dinner out at the Red Rock Brewing Company and it was excellent. The trout was superb.

    Okay, but not great


    The rooms were nice looking and the bed was very comfortable, but I was disappointed by several things. "Complimentary internet" cost $10 a day. Parking also cost $10. There was no complimentary breakfast of any kind. The pool was not heated. However the exercise room was very nice, and the views from the pool and exercise area were also nice.

    Our room was on the Gallivan Plaza side and due to the concert going on below, it was very noisy until late, so we did not get to sleep when we would have preferred.

    Great Location


    This hotel has a great location and is a very nice upscale hotel.

    Located right on the Galivan Plaza and only 1/2 block from light rail stop and just a few blocks from major shopping malls, temple square, etc. The rooms were nice with big bathrooms and comfy beds. The down side of this place is that the "heated" pool wasn't very heated, but the hot tub was, and if your room faces State Street it can be a bit noisy. I would probably stay here again, but would definately request a room facing the plaza.

    ... on I-80 (or "the 80" if you're west coast) is like interval training for your car. Speed limits are 75 or 80 mph, but the semi trucks that dominate both lanes often choose speeds 10-20 mph below the limit (not to mention the uphill struggles). Not that I blame them - with strong winds across the Plains and crazy drivers in blue cars darting in and out of traffic. Spending so much time behind one truck who needed to change lanes to pass another (0.5 mph ...

By this point Bryony was in fully awake, caterpillar drawing mode and so we were amazed that when we finally got on the train (a little after 1am) she was ready to be put back to bed again. I could say that about all three of us actually! Anyway, we made it on to the train, into the familiar surroundings of a little roomette and were dozing off to the chickity-cah rhythm once more.

I think he had a speech impediment because it sounded like he was deaf when I did hear him talk. Then Etasha moved into the treehouse but since it was still pretty cold at night, she was usually found on the couch in the morning. She was an exotic dancer to put it nicely. She had a dog named Persephone who was the ...

Luke is a nice guy but a little hard to understand through a heavy accent. Occasionally, he would break into Portuguese for a few words, catch himself, and have to repeat in English.
