SALT LAKE CITY—Hyatt Hotels Corporation and Sequoia Development have officially opened Hyatt Place Salt Lake City/Cottonwood. The hotel is the fifth Hyatt-branded hotel in Utah and the second hotel built directly in Cottonwood Corporate Center.
Located just outside of the Cottonwood Corporate Center, Hyatt Place Salt Lake City/Cottonwood sits less than a half-mile from Old Mill Golf Course and in close proximity to University of Utah. Additionally, the hotel is within minutes of Snowbird, Alta, Solitude and Brighton ski resorts. Travelers year-round can visit nearby attractions such as the Living Plant Aquarium, Temple Square and Salt Lake Temple or admire the Salt Lake Valley views from the hotel’s outdoor heated pool and hot tub.
Jeff Olpin, area general manager, Hyatt Place Salt Lake City/Cottonwood and Hyatt House Salt Lake City/Sandy, said in a statement, “Hyatt Place was designed for a lifestyle, not a demographic, and as a result, we are confident that everyone from business travelers to skiers will appreciate the open, intuitive design, casual atmosphere and practical amenities, such as free Wi-Fi and 24-hour food and beverage availability.”
Hyatt Place Salt Lake City/Cottonwood offers 124 spacious guestrooms, all of which feature a 42-in. HDTV, the Hyatt Grand Bed and a sectional sofa sleeper. The property also includes 3,200 square feet of flexible, high-tech meeting/function space.
