I recently stayed for two days at the Hilton Garden Inn Salt Lake City Downtown. I chose this hotel as I have previously stayed a few times at the Hilton Salt Lake City which is in need of rennovations and has very expensive parking. The "tripadvisor" reports spoke very highly of the HGI, and with a rate of $99 per night my thinking was that if it was bad I would checkout after one night and find somewhere else. The "tripadvisor" reports are actually correct- and this is a much nicer hotel than the Hilton Salt Lake City. The rooms are new looking, very well maintained, and have a good amount of space with comfortable beds and a good working desk with lighting that works for work. I arrived quite late (1 AM) as I had a delayed flight from Chicago and a wait for the rental car at SLC, however the staff were friendly and checked me in very quickly and efficiently (less than 60 seconds from entering the lobby to key in hand- nice work). Note parking here is free, which is a nice benefit as many hotels charge $10-$30 per day. Wireless and wired internet are also free, as is the business centre which is well equipped with 3 printers and some basic office supplies as well as a few workstations. The room is HGI design, however the rooms are larger than what I have seen in many other cities, and the big screen TV is HD and has a good selection of channels. Breakfast was a buffet option at $10.95 or a-la-carte: quality was good and service was fast and friendly- I thought it was good value overall (one morning I chose buffet, the other a-la-carte which came out to $8). It looked like a number of guests preferred to go to the Starbucks which shares the same parking lot as the hotel. Location is right on the edge of Downtown- it is close to many other Salt Lake City hotels including the Sheraton, Little America, Best Western, and Red Lion. The HGI is about a 5 minute drive from the main Hilton. It took me <10 minutes to drive to/from the airport- the hotel also has a free shuttle to/from the airport which appears to operate on demand. Overall, this is the nicest HGI I have stayed in by far, and it is definitely a step up from the main Hilton both in terms of rooms and service- the one big advantage the main Hilton has is proximity to the Salt Palace convention centre which is almost directly across the street from the Hilton and is a 5 minute drive from the HGI. Final bonus is that with the current HHonors promotion on right now a 2 night stay which cost $228 with taxes netted ~11K HHonors points which is quite impressive indeed. Will be returning to this hotel for sure- note it is an HGI, not a Four Seasons, but really the staff does a great job and the hotel is perfectly maintained- one last point is that the fitness centre/pool are very well equipped and surprisingly are open 24 hours.
