I worked there from '78 to '81. It was one of the better jobs I've had. It was the only hotel I worked at where it felt more like a family than just a bunch of workers. Departments worked well together and were professional. I remember Phyllis Steorts and still have a lot of respect for what she did there. I wish her the best.

My Dad stayed there when on a business trip to SLC back in the 50's. It was a very nice hotel. I didn't see it until 2002 on my first trip to Utah. It was during the Christmas Season and the big tree in the lobby was the most beautiful tree I have ever seen.

My great-aunt was the back elevator operator for many years. While visiting her, I often had the opportunity to see how everything under the radar worked from the ice cream makers to the prophet who often used her elevator to avoid crowds. That beautiful building emanated a feeling of peace, dignity and glory. I'm so glad it has been preserved in its beauty for others to enjoy.
