Taking it Easy in Salt Lake City

This post is in cooperation with the Hipmunk Boutique hotel 2016 campaign

Salt Lake City, the high-elevation capital of Utah, draws visitors from around the world. With its close proximity to both snow for skiing and the Great Salt Lake for water sports, this Western city’s scenic setting is matched with world class activities. Whether you are interested in hearing the Mormon Tabernacle Choir in person or taking in a Utah Jazz game, there is much to see and do at 4300 feet. Temple Square, the most visited sight in the state, is front and center on every travelers list but the Natural History Museum of Utah and Red Butte Gardens will also draw attention.

If arriving into Salt Lake by car, the La Quinta Inn and Suites is a perfect choice. Pet friendly, La Quinta offers a free breakfast to start your day and a pool and spa to relax in after a full day of sightseeing. A mere 10 minute drive to Temple Square and downtown, the hotels location makes for a stress-free visit. With comfortable amenities in a friendly environment, La Quinta always pleases.

The Red Lion Hotel Downtown puts you front and center to all of the sights this active city has to offer. Offering up typical Red Lion amenities, this hotel is dog friendly and features two restaurants if a day of walking downtown has you unenthused to head out on the town for dinner. For the active types, hitting the slopes is a mere 31 miles away at Park City.
