Salt Lake City Marriott City Center
Upscale accommodations, adjacent to a great downtown plaza.
Built in 2000, this hotel offers an impressive 359 rooms, 17 suites and two floors of dedicated, private concierge lodging. This centrally located, full-service property isn't particularly romantic or charming, but it is loaded with pampering services, including a private club, valet parking, in-room massages and in-room office perks such as voice mail, modem connections and high-speed Internet access. The huge fitness center, with an indoor pool, hot tub and sauna, opens onto the Gallivan Center, a public plaza that hosts ice skating, summer concerts and cultural events. The hotel's Italian restaurant, Piastra, is also exposed to the plaza---this proximity alone makes it worth staying here. Fourteen meeting rooms feature state-of-the art audio-visual equipment, and coffee fanatics are pampered with an on-site Starbucks and complimentary java served in the lobby.
