Fodor's Expert Review Salt Lake City Marriott University Park

480 Wakara Way, Salt Lake City, Utah, 84108, USA

Away from the downtown bustle and steps from hiking and biking trails as well as University of Utah attractions, this airy and inviting hotel is popular with business travelers but is actually a great choice if you'd rather be closer to nature and a little away from the bustle of downtown. Thistle & Thyme is one of the better hotel restaurants in town, and there's large gym with big windows facing the mountains. Generally offering lower rates than downtown hotels, this property also has free parking.
