... out it is a closed base. Only authorized personnel are allowed on the base. The 143rd moved depleted uranium from Tooele to California for disposal some 10 years ago, so I knew the base had a lot of bad stuff to protect, It is a good thing the base has tight security. The drive also crosses the southern end of The Great Salt Lake.
... but it was the first time for Scott, James, and Nikki. I read several comments on cruisecritic that said Alaska is all about the shore excursions and the ship accommodations didn't matter. Well, that is their opinion, but in MY opinion, the ship is a destination and is important to me. Having two small children at home, I was looking forward to being pampered for ten days and even spending three days at sea with NOTHING TO DO!
... down under. They flew Southwest back to Tampa and I headed to Salt Lake City on Frontier Air. Remember yesterday I mentioned Frank the photographer.... He came through for us! Yea! I was so happy too receive his e- mail as promised. He sent a couple great pictures of us on the mountain... I will be sure to post. I sent him a thank you and a copy of yesterday's blog that referenced him. Things ...

We had lunch at a cafe. I had chocolate chip pancakes which were so good!!! It was just what I needed on such a long day. Then we got back on the bus and continued driving.

Historical Traveler Reviews Peery Hotel Salt Lake City
A Wonderful Hotel!
My wife and I stayed here for our Anniversary in February. Even though we live in Salt Lake City we wanted to "get away".
First, we both had to work late so we called to let the hotel know and they had no problem holding our room for us. When we arrived the front desk agent was very helpful and gave us a full introduction to the hotel, explanied parking etc. We arrived to our lovely room via the "vintage" and wonderful elevator. The room itself was well appointed with wonderful Bed Bath and Beyond Amenities. Overall it was very clean and well maintained. The origional elevator, the clean and classic styling and even the size of the rooms are what makes this hotel great. In Europe it would have 5 stars. I will stay here again and recommend it to all of my friends. Stay at the Peery! And, no, I am not an employee of the hotel. Just a long time friend of The Peery and all the classic hotels of the world!
Great at the right price.
I booked this hotel on Hotwire, knowing from some research that the boutique hotel downtown typically was the Peery. I got a $47 rate, which was killer for the location and price. Yes it's old, yes it's dated, yes there is street noise and some other generator noise, but for anything under $70 down town it's a good value. The bed was soft, sheets were quality, amenities were nice and the room generally quiet even though it was outside the elevator.
Room service was adequate, didn't try breakfast and I was out of there early the next day. At regular rates, its a let down, at hotwire rates it's a great value.
All of the favorable comments were submitted by employee's
We were hoping to have a great week end In Salt Lake City. We were promised by the Perry that they were a class all by them selves, this is quite true. I have stayed all over the US and never been so miss treated and right down lied to as these people did. Dont beleive the other reviews they were placed there by employee's. This place always over books.Dont bother staying here for the money there are some great B&B's or for the cash you can stay a any of the great hotels in the area. We left them and did just that. The were dishonest and lacked any type of professionalism.
Unique older hotel
Terrific character versus other vanilla hotel options. Staff offers great service. Older building is showing some of it's age. We had to upgrade to a king suite for $20 because they were renovating could not find an blind that fit the oversized window in the original room. The suite was very nice.
Old West Character
I frequently travel to SLC for business, I choose the Peery because of its convenient central location, reasonable rates, and cozy ambiance. Yes the rooms are a little snug but adequate and comfortable in all respects. The Peery's old-timey decor and antique furnishings in the lobby contribute to its charm - a refreshing contrast to the cookie-cutter sterility of the national chain hotels.
Grand Old Hotel
This hotel is a great place to stay in downtown Salt Lake City. Recent renovation makes this a good place to stay. Rooms were large, and well decorated. Definately a place to return to. Check prices on Hotwire.
Cramped Room & Creaky Floors
We stayed in the Peery Hotel for our anniversary the weekend of Oct. 3-5. Right away you notice how all the amenities seem to date back to a period before you were born. The small, snail paced elevator, the creaky stairs and floors. The room was the smallest hotel room I've ever been in. The size of the bathroom was laughable. My knees almost touched the pedestal sink when I sat on the tolilet. The bath mat could not even be spread out all the way because of the base of the toilet and sink. We spent as much time out of the hotel as possible. The continental breakfast is not free, as advertised. The parking is horrendous. Save your money and stay elsewhere.
Very nice hotel
I loved the Peery. It was beautiful and quiet and within walking distance of everywhere I wanted to go. Most of the staff was very helpful and everyone we encountered was pleasant. They had accidently given away the last dbl queen room, so they upgraded us to a king suite at no charge. The room was lovely and the bathroom was elegant and had a nice big tub. If I go back to SLC, I will absolutely stay at the Peery.
We enjoyed our stay at this nicely renovated hotel. Room was spacious and very nicely decorated. Nice amenities. We had a larger room with a separate sitting room area that had a pull out bed and a t.v. Bathroom had toilet & tub/shower. Pedestal sink was in the bedroom area...no room for toiletries..we just used a drawer in the nearby armoire! It was nice having the separate room w/ t.v. so husband could stay up later than I :-) Some reviews said rooms are small...I would ask for an upgrade to a larger room as we were there on a weekend in June and there were still rooms available. Area of the hotel is within walking distance to restaurants, bars, etc. Would stay there again.
World's Smallest Hotel Room
Smallest hotel room I have ever seen! Queen bed took up virtually the entire room - there was no room for a chair or a luggage rack. The only places to sit down were the bed and the commode. Air conditioner had two settings - on and off. On produced the same decibel level as the flight deck of USS Abraham Lincoln. The sink didn't drain, the window shade didn't go up once pulled down and only one bathrobe was provided (take turns...?). No complimentary breakfast as advertised on the Web. It was quiet and the bed was good. Nice towels.
