This is a very nice Double Tree suite hotel. Very friendly staff, modern lobby and lots of sitting "nooks". Room was great. Roomy and comfy. Overall the room was very clean, but if you are picky like me it needed a bit more TLC. I visit Salt Lake quite a bit and will definitely stay here again!
We chose this place because of the location near light rail and good restaurants nearby, and because we were travelling with elder family members who need the extra hotel hospitality. The price was high for the quality we experienced. I'm not used to hotel rooms operated by Hilton to be missing items or have broken room amenities. This was a first. There was a huge hole in the carpet that prevent use from opening the sofa bed (the springs would catch the fabric and pull up the carpet). The breakfasts are not complimentary, even as a top Hilton Honors member, and cost $18 for the typical bland cafeteria food. The was a Starbucks, but the hotel adds $3, so a soda can was $5.
As a Millennial, I remember why I was doing AirBNB. Big corporate hotels are going to phase out if they keep ignoring new generational expectations.
