Element Hotels and Le Méridien Hotels & Resorts, together with The Ritchie Group and Garn Development, have opened Element Salt Lake City Downtown and Le Méridien Salt Lake City Downtown. The dual-branded property features Element’s 100th global opening and its first in Salt Lake City. It also marks the first Le Méridien in Utah. This first-ever combination of the two brands is managed by Azul Hospitality Group.
“This is a milestone moment nestled against the mountains for two of Marriott Bonvoy’s lifestyle brands as we open Element Hotels’ 100th hotel and our first Le Méridien property in Utah,” said Tina Edmundson, global brand & marketing officer, Marriott International. “With Element’s longer-stay lifestyle offering and Le Méridien’s essence of savoring the good life, intermixed with Salt Lake City’s high-altitude beauty, travelers can discover two unique experiences that allow for extraordinary memories.”
The hotels are located six miles from the airport and are within 30 miles of several popular ski destinations including Brighton Ski, Solitude Mountain Resort, Alta Ski Area and Snowbird. The property is also adjacent to Vivint Arena and steps away from the Salt Palace Convention Center. The hotels are located in The West Quarter, a new mixed-used development that connects two halves of downtown with a mid-block pedestrian road called Quarter Row.
Le Méridien Salt Lake City Downtown features 144 rooms and suites, featuring floor-to-ceiling windows with city views and emerald tile-adorned showers. Each guestroom has the Le Méridien signature bed, Malin + Goetz bath amenities and illy coffee.
Element Salt Lake City Downtown offers 126 rooms and suites with city-view, floor-to-ceiling windows, fully equipped kitchens, spa-like bathrooms with eco-conscious amenities and the signature Heavenly beds. The complimentary daily Rise breakfast and a Relax evening reception are offered. As part of the brand’s collaboration with Lettuce Grow, a leader of hydroponic gardening, guests will have access to free, farm-fresh produce and herbs at the on-property Lettuce Grow Farmstand.
Shared amenities include a signature restaurant, the Van Ryder rooftop bar, 8355 sq. ft of meeting and event space, a rooftop fitness center and electric vehicle charging stations.
