Idalia greeted us with a bright smile and stellar customer service This woman is a gem! She was simultaneously working the front desk, answering the phones, cleaning the breakfast area and helping customers without missing a beat! Our room was spotless and the beds were comfortable The breakfast was a nice variety of hot and cold items (eggs, bacon, hash browns, cereal, oatmeal, waffles, fruit, etc)

Excellent location with easy access to the bus line for skiing Highly recommend staying here !! We will be back !

Hollie Walker

The stay itself was great We used the hotel stay for a surgery recovery before heading home The room was very clean

The staff was very friendly and helpful, providing me with ice We stayed two night and by the day we were getting ready to check out staff knocked and let themselves into our room at around 9am without waiting for us to answer our door, which my husband was up getting ready to do We were not dressed or ready to have anyone just walk into the room which was very embarrassing

Alyssa Montgomery

Absolutely recommending to anyone that needs a nice place to stay The pool and hot tub were relaxing, the beds were so comfy, the room and bathroom was very clean and we had a microwave and a decent sized mini fridge I think the one complaint that I have was the lock outside by the fire pit was not accepting my key card and my boyfriend had to let me in 😂 other than that, the TV was great, WiFi was good and my boyfriend even enjoyed the breakfast

I hope you love your stay as much as we did!

I was a little bit skeptical about this place at first because it is an inn (remind me of a motel) But it turns out to be great The room is clean and has everything that hotel provides

The location is obviously not downtown, but if you have a car this should not be an issue It has a really convenience access to the freeway Bus no 209 can take you to downtown too The one other great thing that we found is it’s really close to a historic farm You must check that out Really cool and great photography location

Laura Lee-Haycock

We stayed here for a family reunion in June 2022 The room was clean, the bed was very comfortable Service was good and employees were very friendly

It is a bit outdated but not horribly I would recommend a change in the breakfast menu It’s the same things everyday and no waffle maker Coffee is awful We only ate the breakfast twice due to the reason above No variety at allParking is a bit crowded and if there is no spaces in the front you have to park in the back which is not well lit and a but unsafeI would stay here again in the future I would just plan to eat out for breakfast

Monica Murariu

Personnel was so amazing and so helpful, on top of that we really appreciated the shuttle from and to the airport, the location right next to the ski bus, the gym, the pool and the jacuzzi Maybe too much chlorine in the jacuzzi, however that didn’t stop us from spending some relaxing evenings there The rooms were not the most amazing feature of this hotel, but the sofa was so much appreciated!So 4 stars for the location, jacuzzi, sofa and the shuttle for the price! I’m going to return for sure

The Lodge at Snowbird was excellent and, as a result, we had a great stay! The entire staff was very helpful and accommodating We are a family of four with two teen boys and we had the “one bedroom condo,” which is a bedroom unit combined with a studio unit and had a mountain view, balcony, 2 queen-size beds in the bedroom, 1 sofa sleeper, 2 full baths and a fully furnished kitchen The room was perfect – clean, spacious, fully equipped, and beautiful view

We ordered groceries and cooked our meals, which was perfect for us The hot tub and pool at the Lodge at Snowbird was very nice and enjoyable I also used the sauna there We had ski lockers in the Lodge but we usually used the ski-check at the Snowbird Center, which was just a short walk away I also used the hot tub and sauna and the Cliff Lodge when I took a yoga class there The hot tub, sauna and pool at the Cliff Lodge was no different than the one at the Lodge at Snowbird, with the exception that I think children are not permitted in the pool or hot tub at the Cliff Lodge (not entirely sure about that but I think that was the case) I would highly recommend the Lodge at Snowbird and will hopefully return It was perfect for family ski vacation!

Herriman Guy

Our room was spacious and nice, and the bathroom area quite nice as well Spectacular mountain views from the balcony We are literally in the middle of a mountain forest with trees less than 10 ft away and taller than our 3rd story balcony

I am transported to a sun-drenched mountain paradise now as I write thisMinus 1 star for the following reasons:At 6:15 this morning the garbage truck came and manhandled the dumpster It sounded like Armageddon It sounded like a truck falling off the empire state building and CRASHING to the ground I am a light sleeper but I’m sure that even heavy sleepers were JOLTED awake at 6:15 It is impossible for me to believe that they couldn’t schedule the dumpster pickup for later in the day, even if it costs them extra to do soThe room was full of moths and other flying insectsThe toilet flush is shockingly loud and startlingLOUD heavy equipment sounds coming from the hotel parking lot all morningSummary: 4 stars for an overall great experience, marred just a bit by the things mentioned above

J Levy

We had such a nice time Great people, perfect location, hot tub, pool, facilities super fun Perfect for a family, fireplace etc

Would have been awesome if there was a washer and dryer in the unit but there was one in the building Showers were nice and hot but took some time to warm up Really could do with an updating however to get the fifth star Tired furniture and carpet etc

Carolyn Martinez-Ross

In spite of multiple requests, our room was never cleaned over the course of a week Managers and desk staff alike were unconcerned to the point of lying about the cleaning schedule, and only the most halfhearted attempt was made to address the issue on the seventh day of our stay The hotel itself is generally clean and well-maintained, but we will not be repeating our stay or recommending this hotel after seeing how they addressed the most basic expectations for room cleanliness

Aubrey Warner

After some plumbing issues at home we needed a quick local spot to crash for a few days Didn’t want to pay cleaning fees on Airbnb so used a hotel app to score a solid rate on a room here The room had two beds , a separate living area with pull out couch and a full sized kitchen with dishwasher!They also serve breakfast and are conveniently located near 215 and Cottonwood Heights

Hit Hogs Wallow for some dinner and it ended being a nice weekend away!Clean and big rooms , safe parking , and helpful staff made a potentially rough weekend , a fun staycation instead


We’ve stayed here TWICE now Both times we have requested sheets to make a bed for a child BOTH times we’ve had to call and BUG them to get the sheets to us

It took over TWO hours both times & both times they said “we’ve just finished a load and I will find someone to bring some to you” A complete JOKE There was also a footprint on the bathroom floor and found a candy wrapper on the floor Disappointed to the max

We checked in last night after a long day of driving We have stayed at these hotels in the past without trouble in the past, but this specific hotel seems to have some lapses in the housekeeping departmentFirst, after the long day in the car, we all had to use the washroom

We were surprised that our room didn’t have any soap It sounds trivial, but in a time when the world is concerned about everyone washing their hands, I would have thought that this would be an important (and very inexpensive) detail for the hotel to have looked after Second, wanting a drink of water, we realized that our room’s cups hadn’t been restocked Again, not a huge issue, but it meant a second trip to the front desk and a delay in us getting to bed Lastly, however, when going to have a shower, I discovered that there was what looks like blood on the shower curtain! It was disgusting and as a result, we did not use the showerI am disappointed and will not be planning to stay at this hotel in my next visit

Taha Palwala

I had an issue with toilet( it seems little clogged a plunger would had done the job), the receptionist told me that they cannot switch me to another room since those were their premium rooms and all std rooms were fully booked Good thing was that the toilet starting working when i played with it, but the response i got from receptionist was very wierd and upsetting Besides this issue my stay was good

Marty Anderson

One of my selection criteria for a room on this occasion was a hot tub The hot tub was out of service I was not notified of this prior to, or at check-in

It wasn’t until we had changed and gone to the pool area that we found out–very disappointing The bathroom door did not latch or lock, which was a minor inconvenience as we were traveling with children The staff seemed to be overwhelmed at breakfast and had a difficult time keeping up My previous visit to the area I stayed at the nearby Quality Inn for half the price and my experiences were comparable I am still looking for the ‘right’ hotel to use when visiting my grandkids

We stayed one night Very clean room on the second floor It’s a new building so everything is in great condition

Check in was easy and fast My kids enjoyed the pool and complimentary breakfast Some options were cereal, oatmeal, pastries, eggs and sausage The only issue I had was having to pay for parking , $7/day There was nothing special about parking, not even covered/gated parking

Ariana Mas

Taylor and Lane are spectacular! They truly are the definition of customer care and what every front desk staff should strive to be I had a small issue but they were so helpful and put me at ease that all would be ok and it was thanks to their assistance One of the supervisor ladies was not so helpful or friendly

Probably one of those promotions for the amount of time with the company not based on merit because she acts like she does not have to do anything for anyone I’m just happy I did not have to deal with her much Overall my stay was wonderful I only had to deal with supervisor grumpy pants when I was leaving but it was very unprofessional of her to yell at my daughter Noone should ever yell at a child especially if he/she are not their ownBreakfast was great except for the last day the oven blew up so they did not have hot breakfast but the kitchen staff were so sweet and loaded us up on fruit and yogurtIf you are one of those who prefer a hotel within walking distance to a store or shops this is not it but it’s a short drive like 5 minutes to a 711 Rooms are beautiful spacious and modern Cleaning staff are generous with towels and kitchen supplies I was very happy wish I could have stayed longer Thank you Lane and Taylor!

Christine Myers

Might want to clean the vents in bathroom once in awhile They charge for parking

why??? I understand downtown hotels where parking is limited but here I don’t understand I was taking a shower and discovered the conditioner bottle was empty If you are a woman you understand how annoying it is not to be able to condition my hair The bottles are locked to the shower wall so I couldn’t even tip it upside down to get any little amount Mattress are not comfortable Breakfast was disappointing So at 7:15am breakfast items not being warm doesn’t make sense I understand at 9:50am why they might have gone coldThe positives are that the room was really large and it has a good kitchen

Good, not great We’ve been here a few times now The first times it seemed very noisy, as far as other guests

Our most recent visit we were on the top floor and right next to the elevators I was a little worried about noise from the mechanical room, but we never heard it This was definitely our quietest experience so farThe staff was always incredibly friendly and helpful, and our room was very clean The kitchenette is a nice touch at this hotel chain and came in handy with a baby using bottlesThe location is a little odd and isn’t accessible directly from a road, you have to drive to the back corner of a parking lot Otherwise the location is nice and quietThe breakfast is sub par I’ve had much better breakfasts at much cheaper hotels You’re basically restricted to either microwaved frozen breakfast sandwiches (I could only handle a few bites of mine), a waffle station, oatmeal, or typical cold hotel breakfast fare, and even then their selection of fruit was underwhelming, as were their other cold food offerings In an effort to be fancy and modern they laid out their breakfast area in a really confusing, counter intuitive way

Emily Coleman

I was reading the reviews before I booked a room here, not going to lie I was a little worried After saying for 3 days I was very surprised Everyone working was super friendly and very helpful

The room smelled really good throughout the entire trip, although the hallways did kinda smell like pot/cigarettes, if you’re in the hallway for a short period of time, it wasn’t really bothersome The room was decent, very big and had everything you need, BUT the room was kinda falling apart: wallpaper in the bathroom was peeling, mildew was on ceiling, you can tell there was water damage also on the ceiling, and the bathroom hook was broken so when I placed my towel it fell off that seems like a lot of issues but it really wasn’t I didn’t mind it too much because everything else in the room made up for it I just figured I would leave it in a review so it is made aware The shower was perfect, nice water pressure and stays hot The pool was probably the best part about this hotel, the water was warm and I’m not sure what they use but it wasn’t chlorine which is amazing! I would recommend staying here because its a decent price for what you get

Fred CD

Very clean! Rooms are truly fully functional complete with a dishwasher a real refrigerator along with anything else you might need at of the kitchen including plates and forks Only drawbacks where when I checked in at midnight my keys did not work I was informed by the front desk guy that the key maker was not working so we did the digital key on my phone but that work sporadically Very unfriendly front desk girl as well when I came down the next morning to see if I could get a regular key I did not hear good morning did not see a smile on her face she actually looked like she didn’t want to be there

Breakfast ends at 9am which seems early compared to most hotels that the breakfast ends at 10 am

Tyler Boston

It’s adequate but I probably wouldn’t call it good, and definitely not great Room reeked of cigarettes, walls are VERY thin and you can hear even quiet conversations from neighbors When I showed up the room wasn’t very clean–a wad of toilet paper still in toilet, some small bits of garbage on the floor, the dishes in the room had spots on them

Nothing on its own was enough to complain to the front desk about, but added together they were enough that I wouldn’t stay here againStaff was friendly, complimentary breakfast was decent, the rooms themselves are comfortable enough

I stayed in the Romeo and Juliet sweet it was a little smaller than expected but ample room for 1 to 2 people The jetted tub was amazing the patio overlooked a scenic backyard with a river and beautiful options for enjoying the scenery and an escape from the city The bed was super comfortable and all the amenities were up-to-date and beautiful Breakfast was delivered to my room according to my schedule really enjoyed my visit

Sean Carter

It’s a good experience to try out Ultimately though it didn’t hit as high of a note as I had hyped it up to be The room, Ivanhoe was fine enough but the garden wasn’t nearly as beautiful as I had seen it years prior when considering it for a honeymoon spot and the breakfast which I had lauded before going ended up being okay

It’s a step up from a continental breakfast and certainly better than Anniversary Inn’s breakfast but compared to what I’d seen there before and my slightly unrealistic expectations it didn’t hit the mark We’ll check it out again sometime but I’m not rushing to go back there

Danielle Latu

Got the king room for Valentine’s day Bummer that they’re not doing packages still because of covid but the room was beautiful and very clean The bed was super comfy

The fireplace was magic and the jetted tub was the kind of peace that a mom with 2 under 2 desperately needed Lots of restaurants and gas stations in walking distance Theres a beautiful little walking path and a frozen over pond just outside Microwave, popcorn, and hot chocolate was available outside in the dining area The movie selection was better than any other app I’ve used I have no complaints at all

The front desk staff are so friendly and professional and made my stay as comfortable as they could possibly can The suites are spacious clean and comfortable I haven’t tried out the Elements restaurant as it was closed the whole time we were there, but the complimentary breakfast and meals were great

Thank you for everything Luse and West Valley City Embassy! Will definitely visit you again❤️

Edward Melton

Hotel amenities in the room are substandard Several of the light switches in our room didn’t work The TV in the main room didn’t work either

It turned on but only displayed “PHILIPS” throughout our stay (3 nights) The sofabed was completely broken, kids had to sleep on the floor The saving grace for this place was that the hotel staff were extremely helpful and very customer oriented They offered us a second room, at no charge, but can’t accept having half the family sleep in a total separate floor & room We traveled with 2 minors I would stay at this place again if they updated/upgraded their room furnishings The view was awesome though 😀

Bad Room ExperienceI made a reservation a night before my wedding in March 2022 with my 2 kids so we can get ready the next day close to the reception I checked in at 1am, they were friendly Once we were going to bed the Bed sheets were yellow! Disgusting! I called front desk, they apologized and offer to give me another room in the same floor

My kids and I packed and moved We checked the Bed sheets before unpacking and same thing Yellow!I called front desk and they offer another room in the same floor again but this time the Front desk lady went to check the sheets and Yes Yellow again!!So front desk and the security went to get clean sheets, at this time it was 3am!! We had to be up at 6am to get ready for my wedding, we were super tired!!Front desk said they will discount my stay but unfortunately they didn’tVery disappointing to Pay this price for a suit and get a dirty bed! I just hate a night before my wedding me as the Bride and my little kids had to go through this so late In the nightAt least the Breakfast was good!

Our house ended up being delayed by a month, so we had to keep extending our stay here by “two weeks” Our experience here was far superior to any other hotel I have ever stayed at Kerri-Ann and Brenna were so friendly and welcoming and both went above and beyond! They even mailed us a congratulations on our new home card! We tried every hotel in the Salt Lake area while we looked at houses and this was the best hotel out of all of them

It is very quiet which is my number one requirement It is clean, has everything you could need, and a delicious breakfast and fun happy hour

Rachel Matheson

Everything was great! The hot breakfast was phenomenal The room was spacious, the pool/spa was a good size, and the fitness center had a lot of options The young woman at the front desk was very helpful and kind

Only 2 things were not perfect, the bathroom sink did not drain well and the bed was less than adequate The bed was pretty uncomfortable That being said, I would stay here again


We were extremely happy with our stay The beds were comfortable, the breakfast was outstanding, & the staff was very friendly I used the guest laundry – it was $1

50 to wash & $150 to dry I like to pack light, so being able to do the laundry when traveling with kids really helps cut down on the amount of things we have to pack So convenient!I wasn’t enthused there is a daily parking fee, but it was reasonable-$1000 a night Seemed unnecessary though It’s not like there was limited parking available like there is in big cities like Chicago & New York 🤔

Was at the cliff lodge for a small conference (~300 people) The venue is excellent for such an event, we had meals together under a tent outside, temperature was just right The meals/catering were as good as I’ve had anywhere

There are so many places to walk/hike It’s just so beautiful up Little Cottonwood canyon The mountains of Itah are just amazing during the summer Lots of wildflowers, butterflies, birds and other wildlifeThe lodge is a great place to stay so it’s all right at your doorstep

The rooms were subpar for the price We had issues with the window coverings and the fridge cabinet door hinge was unlatched Also it took about 30 minutes to get any hot water in the room

The best thing about the stay was the massage from Andre He was extremely professional and knowledgeable and even gave tips and stretches for my problem areas It was by far one of the best massages I have had in the past 3 yearsIf you have the chance to come here and get a massage, request Andre You will not regret it

We had a really nice quick stay here The room was immaculate and had a mini fridge, which I always love Towels were soft, bed was comfortable

I unfortunately had to rush out before breakfast, but the amenities looked great There is a staffed hotel bar that runs late into the evening This would be a great place for people wanting quick access to Big Cottonwood Canyon There are plenty of dining options nearby

I would have given this hotel a better review other than other guests and servicesWe did show up 10 minutes early for check in and waited about an hour We were told we would be told when our room was ready

No one came and told us until we got up and asked again Our room was ready, but at least the staff was friendly and apologized And we didn’t need to rush normally but needed to check in asap to do our other reserved activity that eveningAbout 3 am we had people yelling at eachother on the 3rd floor plus other things The rooms are so clean and comfortable, but the walls must be thin and we could hear everyone around us like they were in the room with us Again super late and woke both me and my partner up It really soured our visit as people should have some respect to the hotel rules of quiet time

Beautiful hotel! My biggest concern is that we asked for adjoining rooms and they gave one of our rooms away They did give is a $20 discount, but the adjoining rooms is why we picked Hyatt Place Other then that my only complaint is the rock hard funky pillows

Delicious complementary breakfast

We stayed here for a wedding and it was beautiful The views are great and the staff was friendly (Especially the new guy from North Carolina maybe) The one downside was that in the summer it was hot and the AC was not working on some of the rooms

The food was just decent, but the access to trails and lifts was great!


We got married at Alta Lodge this June and we couldn’t be happier with how everything went! First, The sales director and site coordinator, Rosie and Molly, made it so easy and stress free The entire staff was easygoing and professional from the start Second, the view for our ceremony and reception was beautiful which many of our guests enjoyed

Lastly, our reception food was exceptional and the Sunday brunch was also very delicious All of our guests who stayed at the lodge had a wonderful time
