Rated 1 out of 5 by Brian555 Sub par
The room was nicely remodeled except the bathtub--original with mold in the grout line and repairs
There was no hot water the first night.
The blanket was covered in dried blood(I discovered the next morning)
Had to request extra towels twice
Very poor hotel!

This is the worst Sheraton ever. It should be bulldozed and rebuilt. Outdated everything. And it was incredibly crowded with really ttrashy clientel during our thankfully brief stay. At least the staff was nice and friendly.

Good hotel. Consistent, friendly service. Should have automatic wi-fi to every room. Badly need more electric outlets. I have a CPAP machine and had to crawl under the bed to plug it into an electric strip.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Molina Great Stay, Fantastic Staff
I had an excellent time here, booked a room using my starpoints but paid to upgrade to the club lounge. The room was fantastic, high floor and massive bathtub, great amenities, water and wifi. Part of the club benefits include access the club lounge for afternoon drinks and snacks, which we really enjoyed and also you get breakfast in there in the morning. All of the food and beverage offered in the club lounge was great (loved the starbucks coffee) and the lady who tended to us was a gem. Hotel was close to all the shops we wanted to go to in downtown, and parking was an ease too. I will definitely be back the next time I'm flying out to SLC.

The added cost for the club floor are well worth it, the food, beverages and relaxation were just what we needed after traveling all day.

Really like the hotel and stay there quite often. Overall I would like to see better workout facility / equipment and better food options.
Also Club Lounge was very crowded - can't imagine everyone in the lounge was on Club Level - may want to check who should have access and who should not.

Checked in, ok experience. Took a shower and found hair throughout the bathroom. I told the people at the front desk, and their response was "do you want to keep this on your Visa?" This was NOT a SPG experience...

Rated 2 out of 5 by Poplar Not a happy platinum
Checked in on Monday 6/18 and had to be placed on the second floor on the wing instead of the main tower. was told the club floor was full. (really?) Anyway went to the lounge and found out that had no access. Went to the front desk and asked to grant me access. The clerk looked at my record and told me I am not a platinum. Asked her to double check my SPG number she said that my status had expired which I know it did not. Asked them to look up on the file to find my correct SPG number. They said they could not find it. Went back to my room, logged in and made sure my status is still Platinum and got my number. Went back to the front desk they finally updated my record. Gave the key card to the clerk asked her to rekey my access. She said there was no need she already gave me access. So I went up to the lounge only to find out the key still did not work, I went back to the front desk and questioned how could it be so many errors which caused me great inconvenience. The clerks insisted that she gave me access and refuse to go to the lounge with me to verity. Finally my card key was replaced but no explanation or apology.
I have stayed and enjoyed the hotel many time in this year but now I don't feel like coming back anymore.

Came to SLC to visit my daughter for Mothers Day. The suite we had was WONDERFUL and really made this visit perfect! We were able to entertain our daughter and some friends in our room and did not have to make the bed (because the bedroom was upstairs!!) TOO NICE! Loved the morning breakfast in the Club Lounge too! Thank you SLC Shearton for making this Mothers Day one I won't forget!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Shoemaker Saved in Salt Lake City
SLC's largest trade show of the year just finished. Because of its size, any decent hotel is booked completely through the show's Housing Authority. For some unknown reason my housing reservation was dropped from their system so I had to make one on my own. The facility was modest at best -- in need of repair and no transportation available. I called the Sheraton, explained my situation and my Platinum status with SPG. They were in a SOLD OUT position. The following morning I received a call advising that they had a room for me for two nights.
Loyalty has its rewards and I certainly appreciated Sheraton's going above and beyond to accommodate me.

Rated 2 out of 5 by MbMe Gorgeous Hotel...Terrible Customer Service
*Please disregard the typos I'm using my Iphone...This sprawling hotel is gorgeous! I loved the spacious rooms, Starbucks in the lobby (the barista was amazing) I appreciated the convenience of being downtown BUT all that is diminished by the horrific front desk staff.
You'll be greeted coldly by the front desk staff, are you a platinum member? There may be no rooms available for you despite the massive hotel. there won't be any apologies. She will say "Yes" instead of hello and welcome. While she clicks on her computer you won't exist. It's quite possible your room won't be cleaned and if you ask for it be cleaned (after a long day at work) you'll get attitude followed by a poor job missing amenities and no clean towels provided. If you ask for a bottle of water you will again be greeted with incredible rude attitude and it will be shoved into your hands. Yes, you'll stand there in disbelief.
After expressing your discomfort you'll be told "if you have an issue talk to my manager"who you'll discover also has little value for you comfort.
I provide this feedback as a regular international traveler who works for a fortune 500 company, travels 3 weeks a month 4 nights a week.
There are so many beautiful hotels in that area...save yourself the frustration and stay elsewhere. I'm certain if you do you're experience will match the gorgeous scenery SLC has to offer.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Buffalo83 nice hotel
Had two stays over a one week period. hotel was extremely accommodating to me to find a room with my specific needs on short notice and during a period of high occupancy.
hotel is older exterior and somewhat dated lobby area. However, rooms and other common areas are recently updated and modern.
CHECKIN - smooth. used the plat counter, no wait. staff was extremely friendly and efficient. Recognized me as a plat both times, pointed out the lounge and hotel features, and posted my amenity w/o a problem. upgraded to the club floor both times (during full occupancy)
ROOM - room was modern, though appears and feels somewhat small. Bath was updated. room and amenities were in line w/ brand standards. Room was clean, and no complaints with housekeeping.
LOUNGE - great lounge. large morning and evening spread. one of the better sheraton lounges i've seen. the lounge attendant took great pride in the offerings, and was attentive and thorough.
EXERCISE ROOM - Somewhat small exercise room that felt cramped. 4 treadmills, 2 bikes, 2 elliptical, a weight machine, and free weights. was quite busy at 530 AM both mornings i used it.
OTHER - hotel has a great bar. feels like a real bar, nicely set up and a lot of fun. Free parking was also a plus. Location is right at the fringe of downtown... not the most central location, but walkable if you are in shape. Location was safe though. used the internet 2 nights, one night was quick, one night was so slow it was unusable.
Overall, i'd rate the hotel 4.5 stars (only dings for the cramped exercise room, smaller rooms, bad internet one night, and dated appearance). Will def return again

Rated 3 out of 5 by kjwcpm Facility and Service both need attention
Overall this stay was an average bed for two average nights for a business trip. The room was clean and the bed generally comfortable. Amenities met my basic needs. Where things fell short were in check in service and in general facilities. At check in, there was a long queue (I was roughly 6th in line) with only one desk attendant available to check people in. The wait time was rather extensive, and after a long day of travel it was not the greeting I hoped for. As for the facilities, in general the hotel needs updating, but the flooring in particular is a concern. There is an overall odor of overperfumed treatment combined with a musty smell that give a hint of age to the property. If this can be upted the property can take on a much better status overall.

we stayed here on Dec 11 and the overall feeling was amazing. the rooms were fantastic in their set up and were clean. we checked in and had our room on the 10th floor waiting for us. the front desk gave us directions to walk and enjoy this beautiful city. The 10th floor lounge and TC running it make this place one step better than others. She is funny polite and helpful to make sure all your needs are looked after. We met three men who come here for 10 years at this same time who come here for her not just the hotel. We will recommend this hotel to all our friends travelling through. Also love all the decorations for the holidays

Rated 3 out of 5 by eugmember Great looking hotel, not great infrastructure
I was very impressed when I first walked in to the hotel. The decor is very contermporary and quite pleasing. As soon as I entered my room, I had a smell of some kind of glue. I am still not sure what it was. I then turned on the tv and tuned to fox news. Even though the tv was a large LCD, the picture was terrible and the sound faded in and out. After that let down, I turned on my laptop and connected to the wifi. It was terribly slow. Pages took a long time to load and it seemed like I had to reconnect several times. I was attending a conference and I had heard the hotel was sold out, so my options were very limited. I decided that I could live with those initial dissappointments. The next morning however the straw broke the camel's back. The shower didn't even work. No water would come out of the shower head at all. I notified the front desk about the cable and the shower and was offered a starbucks coupon. She said that engineering would visit my room and repair the issue. She also mentioned that the cable system was being repaired. I was pleased with her concern for the issue. When I returned to my room there was a note from engineering that the problem had been resolved. The next morning however I discovered it was not. I ended up having to wedge a lotion bottle in the tub spout to make the water come out of the shower. Very frustrating way to start my day. Overall, I was not pleased with the hotel. I feel like they poured a lot of money into fancy furniture and nice fixtures but they spent very little on updating the infrastructure of the hotel. I travel a lot for work and the only two things that I really care about are high speed internet and a good shower. This hotel, while catering to businesses for conferences, provided neither to me.

Rated 1 out of 5 by UnhappyGuest2012 Poorly managed hotel - you should avoid if you can
-- Hotel management committed but didn't follow-up
-- With their body language and the words they used they made us feel like a problem that was clearly the hotel's technical issue was our fault somehow
-- After multiple discussions about the problem we were having, the same folks at the front desk within a matter or a few hrs refused to recognize us. And behaved like we had never discussed it with them before.
After trying for 2 days the hotel management couldn't get keys to work for our room. I understand technical issues happen and if we were treated better I would not be upset. But the hotel front desk staff and managers handled the situation very poorly.
They committed multiple times to look into it and assured us that they would follow up shortly, but they never did and when we reached out a few hrs later they had made no progress or from the sound of it had made no attempts to fix things.
We had to reschedule our vacation plans because every time we returned to the room it took them a long time to find someone who would let us back into the room.
Also, what annoyed me most was how they made us feel like this was our fault somehow and that they had little interest in resolving things. Some examples: every time I went to the front desk the same people who I had previously discussed the problem with didn't remember ever hearing about it and of course didn't recognize me. They used words like "sorry, I'm confused, I'm not sure what you're talking about." When they finally decided to give up trying to fix the lock, they gave us a suite worse than the one we had initially reserved, didn't offer to move our things between rooms, and as before made us wait for a long time before letting us in to the room to pack up our things.
I would expect more from SPG!

Rated 3 out of 5 by buylowsellhigher A "no frills" Sheraton
Stayed here 3 times for a total of 12 nights between Dec '11 and Mar'12. Main purpose is for leasure, as a downtown hotel to stay at for my fly-in ski trips. I'm a frequent guest of Starwood Properties and stay on average ~30 nights a yr mostly on biz travel.
Compared to the other Sheraton's I've stayed at, the Sheraton SLC is an "up to par" "no frills" SPG property. Its an older property that completed, in my opinion a minor renovation/face lift.
Location is prime, free parking is a bonus, proximity to slopes, and the number of SPG points to get a free room is a "bargain". This is what brings me back to the Sheraton SLC.
However compared to other Sheratons I've stayed at, SLC probably ranks among the last. This was probably one of the "black sheep" Sheratons to which a renovation was forced upon the property. I feel that it just went thru a minor facelift for lobby and room.
The staff also doesn't feel as "polished" as the typical SPG property... either the corporate politics here or minimalist training. Quality of service offered can be reflected in both front desk service, housekeeping as well as room condition.
The first stay was A-OK, no real problems except swing shift front desk guys making lots of noise at night and a homeless drifter cruising thru the floors looking for recyclables.
Second stay: Door kept malfunctioning, housekeeper recognized the problem, but engineering never addressed it. Tub was also clogged, towel rack in front of the sink comes off easily, housekeeper didn't close my door shut after cleaning.
Third stay: 6th floor, non-spg floor. Didn't come with free bottled water despite gold status, they'd deliver it to me free of charge (with exception of tip) every time but I'd always have to call the request in. The towel rack in front of sink was also loose.
Note: These are just my detailed observations of the property, YMMV... I still recommend this property and will still come back. Although its just that the instance of strange "issues" happens way more often than other SPG properties. I feel that better staff training will improve the SPG experience geatly.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Bde74 My stay.
I have stayed at this particular hotel on numerous occasions. This particular time it's seems we might have had a customer service break down. My arrival was very welcomed, the hotel shuttle driver was very polite and went out of his way to assist me in any kind of way.
Upon arrival the staff had my room keys ready and seem to be very polite. The problem started when I reached my room. The termostat was not functioning correctly, I couldn't not turn the heat down. Around midnight I couldn't take It and called the front desk, well the phone never was answered. I opened the sliding glass to get some cool air and toy surprise I revived cool and the Salt Lake City traffic noise. Well you can imagine how my sleep went that night.
Upone waking up the next day to my own alarm clock because the clock in the room was a whole hour off, why I don't know.
I went down stairs to have breakfast in the restaurant and I started to give my last name and room number. I was told I was under the impression that platinum member take their breakfast in the restaurant, was I sadly mistaken. I was told not all the time. Ok thanks you for that info because I always have taken my breakfast here.
Well after being told by the front desk staff I can take my breakfast in the lounge on the 10th floor I said thank you.
Well arriving at the 10 floor I notice cereal and other certain breakfast items. No take away fruits nor and meat, I ask the lounge attendant is their any meat on the bar. She stated "no". I ask well do we have fruit I can take with me or a granola bar. She gave a granola bar out of a basket that was seated on the floor. I told her I would be fine and have a nice day.
I wanted to bring this to the attention of the hotel staff, but notice I had ran out of time running around tired from the lack of sleep and trying to locate a breakfast for myself. I gave up and just headed out to catch my flight. Once again the fantastic shuttle driver apologized for the mishaps of my stay. I stated to him thank you but it's truly not your fault for the ball being dropped. But I spend way to much money at your hotel with my stays to be treated like this. Thank you.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Rolaids Close to Downtown and Light Rail Line
• Great location near the heart of downtown, light rail stop is just a couple of blocks away
• Lobby provided free internet access, checker board tables, fireplace and comfortable chairs
• Shuttle service was prompt and as long as they didn't have an airport run, they would take you all over downtown
• Plenty of free parking for hotel and conference guests on the north and east side of the hotel
• Starbucks on property
• Check-in desks were stand-alone islands; each had 2 large computer screens on them which hid the view of the staff member greeting you. This set up also left guests without any room to sign papers or place your purse/briefcase so guests either balanced them on their bent knees or placed them on the floor which made retrieving paperwork and IDs cumbersome and very inefficient.
• The 3 elevators to the main hotel rooms were backed up when the conference would break and access to the stairways was locked.
• Pre conference gatherings were held in the conference center lobby, which was stifling hot due to the large glass windows and provided little seating space.
• Comfortable beds with 4 feather pillows per bed, soft down comforters
• Large flat panel TV that swiveled for viewing anywhere in the room, offering premium channels
• Dresser drawers were equipped with quiet shut hardware which keeps room noise down
• Plenty of closet space and room for suitcase stand inside room
• Corner had a reading chair with table and lamp
• The computer desk had a bright light and 3 plugins which made charging electronics convenient
• Room air conditioner never got below 70 degrees, even with both sets of curtains closed. A ceiling fan would be nice to at least keep the air moving.
• 4th floor north side had tiny balcony with view of roof top air conditioners
• DO NOT get a 3rd floor north facing room, the balcony is facing a brick wall
• Environmental friendly water saving toilets with 2 flushing options
• Large oval tub, good sized soap/amenities and large towels
• Large high counter-top area, plenty of bright lighting and 2 electrical plugs
• Variable shower head was clogged with hard water deposits so the flow wasn’t working properly
• Front desk, gift shop and cleaning crew looked professional, were friendly and accommodating.
• All employees I encountered spoke English
• The waiters/bar tenders at the banquet hall were fast and efficient with clearing tables, refilling drink glasses and were very polite to guests.

Rated 2 out of 5 by NavyChief Below Expectations and Sheraton Quality
Below Expectations and Sheraton Quality
As a Starwood Preferred Guest Platinum member, I tend to gravitate towards Starwood properties, of which this Sheraton belongs. (It is the only Starwood property in Salt Lake City.) I was in Salt Lake City for five nights but could not book the Sheraton for the first night, so I stayed elsewhere for the first night.
When I arrived, I noticed that valet parking was not available, although their Web site indicates its availability. Since there was nobody outside, I parked and walked in to the front desk to register. I asked the clerk if there were a bellman available for luggage assistance. She said that nobody was available but she "would try to get someone." I waited for over ten minutes before I saw a bellman unlock their luggage storage area. I continued to wait until I returned to the desk clerk and reminded her that I was waiting for a bellman. She then called him over to assist. He was friendly, and quickly assisted in moving my luggage from my car to my room. On the plus side, self-parking is free, with spots available on the side or behind the hotel, with a bit of a walk to the front entrance.
During the check in process, I found it very difficult to hear and understand the clerk. Also, little to no Platinum recognition was offered. My room was a standard room on their so-called Preferred Guest floor. No Platinum suite upgrade was made, even though suites were available for booking. (From what I've determined from others, suite upgrades are on a "depends on how we feel" basis.) It was clean and functional but certainly nothing to write home about.
The lobby is exceptional. It has a lodge-like feel, with an enormous fireplace and comfortable seating. There is a large "conference table" in the lobby, with plenty of chairs and lots of electrical connections. Great idea!
Breakfast, in short, is horrendous. Finding a clean table was a challenge. The offerings on their buffet spread were limited. The scrambled eggs were dry and hard as a rock. Other "hot" entries were not. It was also the most unkempt buffet I have seen in a long time. They offer eggs to order, too. I ordered two eggs over medium. When delivered, the yokes were hard and one was broken already. The server (there may have been more than one) appeared over burdened with busing tables and "trying" to keep the buffet bar clean and waiting tables. I had four breakfast coupons (my rate included breakfast), but after my second breakfast fiasco, I threw the last two away and are elsewhere.
I stayed four nights at the Sheraton Salt Lake City. I don't think I've written this before about a Sheraton stay, but I was definitely not sad to leave.
