6/10 Good

AC didn’t work. Technician was great but front desk handled the process poorly. It was 95 outside and 80-85 in the room. No apologies. Then when working in the lobby the restroom was gross.see below. Management is needed badly.

2/10 Poor

Bad Marriott experience
It was pretty bad. Do not stay at any of the Marriott properties in Salt Lake City. They are owned by franchisees who do not care about customers. This hotel oversold itself by 6 rooms on the day we arrived. Their best rooms were terrible. They are very poorly managed.

A Relief For Mom Traveling With A Young Child
My daughter needed to have a procedure at the nearby children's hospital. This hotel was really close and I appreciated that a lot. The hotel seems a bit older but everything was clean and I was very happy to have a Starbucks in the lobby.
