  • Group of friends

    convenient to down town

    carpets were worn, needed updating

  • Older travelers

    I found the front desk service not helpful and somewhat rude. The parking was dimly lighted and very scary looking. I was honestly worried about my vehicle and my safety. The front lounge was dirty looking and the customer service cashier was just as rude as the front desk person. I do not remember the Red Lion so unappealing as I do now. I most likely will not stay there again, even if the price was right!

  • Group of friends
    8.8

    Loved the balcony, view, convenience, price, location, and comfortable bed.

    Did not like the overall smell of the hotel. Could smell smoke even though we had a no smoking room. Also, the fan didn't work in the bathroom.

  • Family with children
    7.8

    Good accessibility in downtown area of Salt lake city. Comfortable open car parking.

    No complimentary breakfasts though it is being in downtown area. We couldn't find difference b/w executive 2 queen beds and ordinary 2 queen beds. Also for us hotel assigned executive 2 queen right near to elevators. It was very much disturbing in the nights.

  • Older travelers

    Comfortable room, close to downtown activities and restaurants, relatively quiet.

    Nice location, very near to the convention center, also easy to reach from the airport. Clean and comfort.

    Location

    The room was nice but appeared to not have been vacuumed carefully. There was paper on the floor and there was a hair on the back of the toilet that could not have belonged to me or my daughters.

  • Family with children
    7.8

    It was clean with a restaurant next door.

    There were no movie options and very limited television options.

  • Single

    When I called the front desk with a need, they always sent someone up immediately. The view was great. The pillow top mattresses and the fluffy pillows were very comfortable. It had internet service. They gave us toothpaste and toothbrushes when we forgot ours. It had a microwave and a regrigerator.

    The room was too cold all week long. I think they never even turned the heat on, because when I adjusted the thermostat ful up, nothing happened. In the exercise room, the TVs on the aerobic equipment could not be turned on. The cafe was overpriced.I Paid 8 bucks for a cup of chicken noodle soup. That is outrageous. The closet sliding door was off the track. I asked to have it fixed, and they came up immediately, but within a day it had fallen off the track again. The microwave worked crazy. I mean, I got it to work, but it was nonstandard. The "roaring start" breakfast buffet had too few items to be worth the money. The shuttle service dropped me off at the regular airport check-in instead of the curbside checkin. I was very worried that I would miss my flight because of the delay.

    Clean environment

    I could not sleep due to severe noise of elevators. Therefore, I requested to change a room. But, there was other noise such as ice makers.It was terrible to stay in Red Lion Hotel in Salt Lake city.

    It was really clean.

    I wasn't happy about being right by the elevator.

    I have to admit that I was very disappointed with the red lion hotel!!!! I was staying at the Radison Hotel and I wished I would have stayed there! The restauant in your hotel is a joke for the price I paid for it!!! I ordered a simple fruit dish and even tho there were were only a few people in the rest. It took them 25 minutes to bring me my order. (Not only once, but the thrree times I ordered food from them). The desk in my hotel room has disgusting, scrapes on the surface and the doors of the closet were broken. If I had paid $39.00 for this room, it would make more sense, but $79.00...hmmmm big disappointment!!!!!
