"Nice Room, Dated Appearance in Lobby and Hallways"
I enjoyed the room accommodations. Bed was comfortable and the room was updated and clean. Hallways and lobby were dated, ice-machine looked rough, but otherwise all was great.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Nice hotel in downtown Salt Lake City"
I needed a hotel close to the convention center in Salt Lake City. The website said it was 4 blocks from the convention center and in reality it was more like 7 blocks to the FRONT of the convention center. The blocks are VERY long blocks and it was not realistic to walk. Hotel staff informed us that they provide a shuttle and that there is also train […] that is free to ride. We were able to board the train about a block and a half away from the hotel and ride most of the distance. The room was comfortable and clean, the beds were comfortable. The only thing I didn't like about the room was that they are in the process of sealing off the sliding glass doors that open onto the balcony in an effort to be more energy efficient. Our door was not sealed and we were able to open it and enjoy some fresh air, but next time we go to Salt Lake their doors will be sealed closed. Also, there were not very many electrical outlets in the room which made using laptop computers and charging cell phones difficult. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Great place to stay for a family with kids. Room had a nice view of city.Genuine Expedia guest review
It's in an awesome location. Walking distance to temple square. The room had lots of information about its surrounding areas.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Friendly staff, clean room"
Great place to stay, price was fantastic. The room was no-frills, but very clean. The staff was extremely pleasant and helpful. The parking lot was a little sketchy at night. Could use better lighting. But that seemed the only drawback.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great hotel for awesome price!"
The room was nice and clean and temperate. The linens and towels were very nice. The girl working in Red's (3/28) was EXCELLENT.Genuine Expedia guest review
"I always choose Red Lion when in SLC."
I stay here every year when I visit my son in SLC>Genuine Expedia guest review
"easy to get to."
Usually get a great deal. Rooms are big, but need to be updated. Very easy to get to and avoid city center traffic although its downtown. The restaurant and bar closes too early. And all rooms are non-smoking which I don't mind. But you used to be able to use the balcony but now those are closed off.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great place to stay."
Only stayed one night with a friend who was in town. Staff was friendly. Shuttle to downtown was so convenient. Room was well kept and clean. Would definitely recommend and stay again!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice, modern hi-rise hotel"
This is an extremely clean, convenient and well-managed hotel right in the heart of Salt Lake City. The management and staff are wonderfully welcoming, and always helpful in any way possible. Their airport shuttle service is another plus for those of us who do not rent an automobile. My only objection is that there really are not many eating places […] on the west side of Main Street, most being on the east side. The one notable exception was a smallish, very down-scale looking Thai restaurant, Thai Aroy-D, [271 W. 900 South], just a couple of blocks from the hotel. Being a vegetarian, I asked that they just bring me something of their choice. It was the most wonderful yellow curry imaginable. I will stay at the Red Lion again.

"Good location and great value"
Great location near the popular beer pubs red rock and squatters. Super nice receptionist got us a room with a view of the wasatch. Updated beds are super soft. Does not include any breakfast, but they do have a buffet for 8 bucks, i just went to McDonalds.Genuine Expedia guest review

"Convenient to restaurants"
Great value! I expected much less for the price I was paying. The room was clean, linens were acceptable and bed was super comfortable. I would guess that they have done a recent renovation and it was done nicely. The lounge was functional serving meals and drinks but not a place to have a romantic glass of wine. Overall, I was very impressed - nice […] hotel and great value for the dollar. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Just a great hotel"
My wife and I booked this hotel on the way to Washington for Christmas and we couldn't have been happier. For the price I didn't expect much and we were blown away at the quality. Our room was massive with plenty of space. The bed was comfortable and the room was spotless. The hotel itself does have a few sloppy parts if you're looking hard but it's […] nothing to deter you loving this place. There wasn't much to walk to but the area was safe. We were up on the 6th floor and the view from the window was beautiful. The front desk staff when checking in were super friendly and made you really feel welcomed. The only complaint I have if I had to come up with one was the fact they have sealed the balcony doors to the rooms for energy conservation and the only reason that was a problem was due to me being a cigarette smoker. I will definitely be staying here every time I go through SLC. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Safe and secure lodging."
Very helpful at check in. Gave me information about the area. Also a city map and directions to the sports arena we were going to, Told us about the cafe and dining options. Room was extremely clean. Bathroom stocked with a very nice quality shampoo, hand cream and soup. Towels were soft. Plenty of light in the room to read by. Televison offered a variety […] of shows. The exterior was well lit. This is always a concern when arriving late to re-enter the hotel. Side security door was adjacent to the handicapped parking stall I required. Door could only be opened with a room key. I felt very safe and well taken care of and will visit this hotel the next time I'm in Salt Lake City. Thank You Expedia. You did it again. Gave me my monies worth. I love it!!!

"A good choice, esp for a short stay downtown"
Pros: Great location in SLC; nearly on-demand shuttle that takes you to the SLC airport or even to Temple Square!; friendly, helpful staff including nice shuttle drivers; a gift shop for essentials you forget as well as fancy knock knacks you don't need; dining options including a bar, a casual restaurant that will deliver room service, and fancier […] dining with a view; comfortable beds and rooms with the essentials including really solid cable tv offering; wi-fi available though I didn't try it. This hotel also offers what looked like a good, basic exercise room, conference rooms, and I think a pool somewhere. Cons: Older hotel; not a neighborhood to roam around in; some traffic noise; tiniest hotel shampoo/conditioner i've ever seen; breakfast is only included on some types of reservations likely not with third party booking sites--but no big deal since kids eat free under a certain age, breakfast is reasonably proced per person, and you still save enough money through booking site to make it worth it. I got stranded at the airport and needed a comfortable, safe place to stay with a reliable shuttle so I wouldn't havering get a car. I was very satisfied with my stay and would stay again.

"Great option for downtown SLC"
Very clean and comfortable room. The carpet in hallways and in lobby had some obvious wear, but it was nothing to balk about. The cleaning lady did pop in a little early, but then again we didn't get told checkout time. Aside from these very minor issues, it was a great room and the clerk was extremely helpful with helping us find temple square and […] how to get there. I would stay here again.

Our stay was nice and the hotel staff was very friendly. The room was very clean and cozy. The cafe wasn't anyting special and it was a little pricey for breakfast. I would most definitely stay here again if I ever go back to SLC. The Red Iguana is a fabulous restaurant that you MUST visit!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"\ Best service I ever had"
The bed was the most comfortable I had ever sleept in a hotel ever. I was very far from where I was to be for classes and they shuttled me back and forth for every one including the airport I would recommend their convenience to any one.Genuine Expedia guest review
