Nice clean room and friendley staff. Booked through Booking .com. Great room and easy access to the city. Our grandson is a student at Westminster College, we come to see him in a play. Would recommend this hotel.

Housekeeping was reckless and threw out my clothing in a bag that contained over 250$ worth of clothes. Went to front desk, 15 minutes passed, did not even address problem to staff. Bad service, bad staff, definitely would not recommend.

I have stayed at this location before and will be back again. The only complaint I have about my room is the lack of a place to relax in my room. I had a Kingsize bed room with no couch/love seat or recliner chair. I had to use the computer chair, which isn't very comfortable or relaxing. I will definitely...

Room was good, nice bed, desk and all great (as is normal with a lot of renovations, bathroom only cosmetically upgraded but was fine) reception area was a bit of a pig's breakfast, but they are apparently going to a kiosk check in soon.

When you first walk into the hotel, they've done a great job of modernizing the downstairs with a small bar area, a game room and cool wood sitting area. That's kind of where the great job of remodeling ends. In getting off the elevator, the hotel smells like an old hotel. They hadn't vacuumed the carpet on our floor in...

I have mixed feelings on this hotel. Pros: clean room, comfy beds, great toiletries (love the lavender charcoal soap). Cons: felt uneasy/unsafe due to lots of security cars in the parking lot and officers in the lobby (not sure what happened), not in love with the hard floors in the rooms (just didn't make the room seem comfy and welcoming),...

Lobby and room was great, but the bathroom seemed very outdated, dirty, and in need of repair. The room was really nice. Great tv size! Food in the bar/restaurant was great quality and price. Free shuttle to airport always a huge plus too!

This hotel was very beautifully peaceful and I love that it's downtown and close to the gateway as well as city creek! I had a very relaxing night and I loved that the employees were so nice! I will be coming back!

After booking this hotel, we noticed that their overall rating was lower than expected and the reviews were troubling. The staff at check-in were very friendly and welcoming although the "front desk" seemed like an afterthought in a nicely remodeled hotel lobby. Our bed was insanely comfortable. After traveling internationally for the past several weeks and having our sleep cycle...
