Landmark 1923 bank turned hip hotel brings luxury and a little bit of funk to SLC’s buttoned-up downtown
Decorative style is best characterized as “eclectic.” In the showy lobby, giant hanging silver spheres, plush red velvet armchairs and mod midcentury lamps contrast with a traditional Victorian backdrop (neutral walls, painted moldings). Hallways and other public spaces display a somewhat more subtle look but still offer playful, decorative flair, such as canary-yellow walls and the occasional fish sculpture.
Bed and Bath
Though not huge, the rooms are comfortable at around 300 square feet, with space for both a seating area and a desk. Eclectic guest quarters meld diverse decorative influences: burgundy rug and curtains bearing vaguely Southwestern patterns, oversize white padded headboards and colorful abstract art. Rather than clashing, this look is whimsical, modern and inviting. The compact bathrooms are nice and straightforward, and come stocked with luxe bath products and animal-print robes.
Few properties of this caliber so warmly welcome pets. Any number of animal companions of any size stay free, dogs on floor seven and cats on 11 (food and water bowls included). Humans seeking food and drink, on the other hand, should head downstairs to the black and white–tiled Bambara Restaurant, where chef Nathan Powers, who was dubbed Utah’s Best New Chef in 2010, serves up seasonal American fare from an open kitchen. The Vault Bar next door is an intimate, high-ceiling cocktail lounge.
In the Area
Urban renewal for the 2002 Olympics means Salt Lake’s got more going for it these days than most would suspect: heaping brunches and house-made pies at the down-home Left Fork Grill; generous small plates and local microbrews at Eva; affordable, fashionable threads at Lolabella; free classic films at the Utah Film Center; and local hipsters, strong coffee and live music at Sugar House Coffee. For those willing to venture out to Heber Valley, just under an hour away, the reward is a swim in the Homestead Crater, an azure, 96-degree grotto.
