I had to attend a conference in Salt Lake City for work and was booked at the Hyatt Regency Salt Lake City. The hotel opened in October 2022 and it still has a bit of that new car smell. It’s attached to the Salt Palace Convention Center, which has 60,000 square feet of meeting space. It’s a modern, spacious accommodation with lots of amenities for both business and leisure travelers.

Anthony’s Take: The hotel feels brand new and has tons of amenities. My room was spacious, well designed, and comfortable. The Regency Club had a nice breakfast spread as well as snacks and drinks in the afternoon. If you’re attending a conference, you can’t get a more convenient hotel. I also appreciated that the hotel had several restaurants, a 24-hour market, a fitness center with Peloton bikes, and an outdoor pool.

Hyatt Regency Salt Lake City Rate

Booking

I booked a King Room through my company. We had a rate designated for the convention, but it was in line with the Standard Rate above. If you’re redeeming World of Hyatt points, this hotel ranges between 9,000 points for a standard room and 30,000 points per night for a premium suite (depending on if the date commands an off-peak, standard, or peak redemption).

Transportation to the Hotel

I took an Uber Premium from Salt Lake City International Airport (SLC) to the hotel. It cost $32 and took around 13 minutes for the 7.4-mile ride. Returning to the airport cost around the same and took about an equal amount of time.

Hyatt Regency Salt Lake City Check In

Check-in

I arrived around 9:00 pm and my room was ready. The lobby is huge with many seating areas, a 24-hour market, and a restaurant. It also directly connects to the Salt Palace Convention Center. As a Globalist, I was granted an upgrade to a 1 King Bed View Corner Room as well as access to the Hyatt Regency Club. I did not need a late checkout, but it was offered. Check-in was speedy and the agent was helpful in giving a quick overview of the property. I was in my room a few minutes later.

It looks like it’s also pretty convenient to the light rail that goes to the airport as well if you’re looking to save money on getting to/from.
