I came back on business to SLC and I had no hesitation on staying here again. It was a great decision.
When I arrived, they had a welcome back gift and wonderful note for me. I had a long travel day followed by working before coming to the hotel and this just made my day.
I had drinks and dinner at The Vault, the bar. Wonderful as well. It was Halloween themed in decor and drinks, which was fun and tasty.
Definitely stay here!

I haven't been to a bad Kimpton yet. The service is impeccable! I hate that Peta took away my goldfish but people like to spoil fun...The room was comfy...quiet and the lobby had flavored water, tea and coffee available.
THe location was great for walking and very close to the Tabernacle!...I even hiked to the Capitol building There is a great pastry shop near called Evas!
