Royal Garden Inn
Good value in a six-acre garden complex.
If you're on a budget and you need access to all that Salt Lake City has to offer, this hotel is a perfect choice. It's a 15 minute walk from downtown, and is located within the Free-Ride Zone of the easily accessed, public light rail system, TRAX. Unfortunately, it's also only two blocks from a busy freeway on-ramp and can be noisy. Comfortable guest rooms include 18 poolside cabana rooms opening onto private patios. Allergy sufferers and non-puffers will be happy to know that 95 percent of the rooms are non-smoking. The seasonal pool is cheery and popular with children during the summer months, and a year-round outdoor hot tub is sheltered within a gazebo. The complimentary deluxe continental breakfast includes tasty Belgian waffles.
