Rated 2 out of 5 by nobodyspecial poor layout
the room was two floors--heater duct near ceiling directed right at bed--freezing on 1st floor and steaming on 2nd--hot air blowing on me all night in bed as thermostat was downstairs near drafty sliding glass door. also was old, busted up, and not so clean.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Consultant WiFi issues in the Garden Rooms
Good hotel nicely refurbished and huge rooms. It consists of two types of accommodation - the tower good size rooms, and decent WiFi; and 2 floors of garden rooms that encase a central garden, pool, etc. Its a pretty long hike around the garden and there is only one elevator at one end of the loop which means an even longer walk if your room is the other side and you don't want to drag your suitcase up a flight of stairs. The garden rooms are even bigger than the tower rooms but the AC units are noisier and I generally turn mine off at night so I can sleep. (I've stayed many times at this hotel.) Most alarming is the WiFi in the garden rooms which drops out and is terribly slow even if you are sitting next to an access point. The hotel doesn't manage the Internet access so they are powerless to fix issues and two hours on the phone to the company that does, hasn't so far fixed anything. They do claim to be in the process of thinking about replacing or upgrading the Internet access though.

The front desk staff were just the best. The Upgrade to the 10th Floor Lounge was also excellent. Cannot wait for our next stay at SLC Sheraton.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Bill Best part of the stay happened at checkout.
Treated poorly right from the beginning. Had to call the platinum desk, as it felt as the hotel staff was intentionally giving me such a bad room.
The gentlemen who helped me at check out should be promoted to management. He's the only one who made me feel appreciated.

Rated 2 out of 5 by AlwaysInSLC Sheraton SLC - You need to shape up!
I stay a lot at this hotel as it is the only Starwood property in SLC. But, the hotel is getting run down. I am getting more and more disappointed with the Exec lounge on the 10th floor. It is no longer invitiing and does not even feel clean. The espresson machine has not been working properly fo months and you never can rely on them having the teas you want in stock. The hot and cold food also is very basic and not really healthy. The hotel's room service is quite good so in quality and taste, so it is too bad the lounge is not.
Overall the hotel can do much to improve quality.

This hotel offers excellent service in a great location. Recently re-modeled, interior decor is warm and inviting with a modern twist. Would definitely return for another stay when I'm in the area!

Rated 2 out of 5 by Joanofarc Nothing outstanding
We took the "best" room offered, being a loft suite....the bedroom in this suite is upstairs, with the washroom, which basically made for a cramped sleeping quarters. The hotel itself was nice enough, but I wasn't expecting to have a peeling bathtub (they had refinished it rather than replace it, and whoever did the refinishing did a shoddy job...there was actually large hunks of the coating peeling off in several areas of the tub) in the most expensive room they had...for $350/night, I would have thought it would be nicer in some respect, but it was certainly not worth the "upgrade" and I wished we had saved our money and gone with a standard room. The loft room is a waste unless you plan to entertain and need the living area totally separate from the sleeping area.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Louise35 Highly recommend this hotel to anyone in spite of
my trip being short, for a quick meeting. I can still speak highly of the Sheraton Hotels as have stayed in other Sheratons throughout the country. All of them have been clean, pleasant, good food, accommodating and comfortable.
And, Yes I would stay here again in a heart beat!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Hollie Outstanding Service!!
I usuaully don't take the time to do these surveys but this instance is an exception. I always enjoy staying at the Sheraton in Salt Lake City but I was impressed beyond measure on this stay. From my room being perfect to the level of customer service I was so impressed. What really made my stay perfect however was my breakfast experience on my Monday morning. Mackay was my server and he seemed to have close to 50 tables. He was rapidly taking care of his guests while his manager Trent ran alongside him. I can't even imagine taking care of 50 tables at once. What blows my mind is that this was probably the best service I have ever had in a restaurant. The two of them were laughing and making each individual table in the restaurant feel like one big family at one table. And come to find out, not only were they running the restaurant but their room service person had called in sick and they were taking orders up to rooms as well. Their awesome personalities and displays of ultimate guest satisfaction impressed me beyond belief!!

I must say I really enjoyed staying at the Sheraton - the staff was so accommodating at every turn. The front desk helped with my difficult booking issues (there were 3 of us all having different request), we changed the reservation to extend days and even though they were virtually sold out the hotel made it work.
Loved the club level - absolutely worth it!

Rated 2 out of 5 by lawrence cold and noisy
love the staff but was placed in rm 151... artic air pouring in around the un-insulated sliding glass door; and the heater was so loud it was impossible to sleep. Transferred up to rm 302; heater somewhat less noisy but i had to set it on 78 degrees, and it would take hours to get the room temperature to 69 degrees. seems the hotel is ready for some significant upgrades in efficiency...

Rated 3 out of 5 by TonyW The resturant needs a lot of improvement
Due to the cold weather and icy road condition, I decided not to venture out for food and instead ate at the hotel restaurant. Both nights I stood at the entrance waiting to be seated for over 5 minutes and there were not more than 5 tables of guests inside.
The choice of food is poor, mostly sandwiches, hamburgers and salads. Only one type of steak was offered which to me is a big surprise for a Sheraton in the downtown area of a major US city.
If it is not the weather, I would definitely not have any food in this hotel anymore.

Rated 5 out of 5 by cinthyn Comfort and Hospitality on the mark,
The hotel is comfortable, warm, hospitable, and welcoming. All staff are professional, seemingly know their jobs, aim to please, and
are ready to accommodate their guests.
There is a Go Green program that allows guests to opt for no housekeeping services during the stay in return for SPG points or reduced fees for meals. I love the breakfast and hospitality on the 10 th floor.
This is my third visit and I love the place. The airport shuttle is a wonderful perk!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Married32 What a relaxing hotel
My husband and I stayed at the Sheraton on our wedding night. It was a wonderful stay back so many years ago. We have continued the tradition to stay at the Salt Lake Sheraton several times since and thoroughly enjoy the quiet peaceful atmosphere. Such quality is appreciated.
The staff is very accomodating and always make us feel welcome. This hotel is one of Salt Lake's hidden treasures!

This hotel gets five stars. I wouldn't dream of staying any place else when I'm in Salt Lake. The staff is helpful, friendly, and always courteous. The room was everything I could ask for, room service was prompt and my food arrived hot and delicious, the resturant food was excellent. as well. Thanks for making my stay just a great experience, I can't wait until my next ski trip to stay in your hotel. The hot tub was exactly what I needed after a day on the slopes. My rating is definitely 5 stars for this hotel.

Rated 2 out of 5 by PVBLIZ Terrible customer service and rude staff
My husband and i stayed at this property twice in a week's time. The second time we checked in, we were greeted by a very rude person at the front desk. She proceeded to give us a room that someone was already in. My husband and I walked in on a woman in bed and scared her half to death. When I called the front desk to tell her, she said, " I don't have anyone in my system staying in that room..." Ridiculous, as we told her we walked in on this woman....She kept me on hold for almost 15 minutes until my husband went to the front desk and asked for the manager..they moved us to a terribly loud room right next to the staff supply room...All in all it was a terrible experience on top of an already stressful visit to Utah based on the weather...ALso, they did a terrible job of keeping the front walk way shoveled from the snow...I fell flat on my face on the way out...UGH....

It's been several years since I've stayed at this hotel, but I must say it's been transformed. Rooms are nicely done, beds extremely comfortable. Staff is friendly. Would like to see little refrigerators in room, but maybe that'll come in the next room updates!

Rated 2 out of 5 by bsteven No SPG recognition
I made this reservation several days in advance and had my platinum ambassador call to confirm a late-night arrival for me. When I arrived I was given a standard king room and told that nothing else was available, despite the fact that the hotel was showing suite availability just a few hours prior. My colleague who checked in at the same time and is SPG Gold received an upgrade to a parlor suite. I go out of my way to stay at SPG properties (45 miles from my destination in this case) and it is absolutely unacceptable to be treated with such indifference in light of my loyalty. My room was subsequently moved the next day, at my request, but no apology was given.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Penny319 Cleaning and outlets
Hotel staff needs to clean behind tv cabinets and bed. I couldn't find an outlet nor open the outlet piece on the desk so I looked behind the TV unit and there was an empty cup there. Then I looked for an outlet behind the bed and it was very dusty and had a ton of pillow feathers. It's all in the details and cleaning all parts of the room is important. Please also make outlets more accessable.

Justin at the front desk was extremely friendly and helpful. We were visiting for the Justin Bieber concert and Justin helped my daughter try to find out which hotels JB, his crew and his dancers were staying at. He definitely went above and beyond the call of duty!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Visitor007 Unmet expatations
This was our first stay at a Sheraton though we've stayed at numerous 3-star hotels before. Our expectation was that a "Sheraton" would be unmatched by other lower-priced hotels with regards to amenities and attention to detail. But a bunch of nagging little things sort of spoiled the experience: a broken lock on the bathroom door, lobby coffee service that was empty for long periods of time, room service desserts that were deformed by the plastic wrap covering them, a $10 charge for Wi-Fi in the room... And really, it was just an ordinary room that we've seen so many times before. Heck, the others will throw in a free breakfast and maybe will have fresh cookies waiting for us when we check in. Just get the feeling that the management was not paying attention. A nice hotel but nothing really special.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Sophia08 Great hotel for a skiing trip
This was our first time to stay at the Sheraton Hotel. We requested an upgrade to the club level, which we think was worth it. The upgraded room was on the highest floor and had a great view, which we liked very much. However, the neighbor's room was too close to our room and we could hear some noises from them. Our sleep was light at times throughout the night due to the noise of the neighbor's slamming door.
Upon entering the room, the place looked clean and smelled fresh; however, the room temperature was too cold when we got there, and it took awhile for the room to warm up. The remote controller was dirty and sticky.
We experienced confusion about the included breakfast and Internet connection. The front desk didn’t clearly explain about breakfast not including room service and about Internet being no extra cost despite the $10 charge it stated on the homepage. We had to check multiple over the phone times and would have had to pay extra if we hadn’t checked.
The club lounge food was great, but the staff’s service was not that great in the lounge. We requested drink, but they ignored our request and we had to remind them multiple times. The communication was difficult, and it seems the lounge worker was a first-day worker. We think that they were lecturing us on what and what not to do -- that we shouldn’t give the beverage order note to them, and that we had to clean our dishes after we finished them. It was not pleasant to hear when we enjoying our breakfast. The breakfast was delicious, and we enjoyed the scrambled eggs and pastries.
The toaster, microwave, and refrigerator were all plugged into the same extension cord. This led to a couple short-circuits, which required resetting the fuse tripper switch on the surge protector. The fuse switch was not immediately accessible.
The entrance doorman was very kind and knowledgeable. He provided very clear and detailed instructions on parking when we asked. The parking lot was very spacious.

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 4 out of 5 by SeattleErin Almost perfect
We really enjoyed our stay at the Salt Lake Sheraton over Christmas. The room was spacious and comfortable and the staff very accommodating. My only complaint was the unprofessional lounge attendant. As the lounge is reserved for status-level guests, I would expect more professional service. The breakfast dishes were not always supplied, she berated guests for failing to close the lid of the hot food, called everyone honey, and took food for herself while mentioning that it was not allowed. Otherwise, a great stay.
