Salt Lake City's New Convention Center Hotel Debuts

The 700-room Hyatt Regency Salt Lake City is connected to Utah's Salt Palace Convention Center.

Unveiled last week was the 700-room Hyatt Regency Salt Lake City, Utah's first Hyatt Regency hotel. The only property connected to the Salt Palace Convention Center, the Hyatt has 60,000 square feet of its own event space within walking distance of downtown's attractions.

"The development of the Hyatt Regency Salt Lake City has been in the works for a long time," said general manager Pina Purpero. "The project was envisioned by Salt Lake County and industry partners more than 10 years ago to address the growing demand of large-scale events. The ethos of the Hyatt Regency brand was a natural fit to bring this vision to life, adding modernity and vibrancy to the city’s central core."

The guest rooms feature floor-to-ceiling windows looking out on the city skyline and the Wasatch Mountains. Sporting a modern design, the rooms offer separate seating areas, high-speed internet and Smart Mirror vanities. Doors open using the World of Hyatt app's digital keys. Guests with free time can enjoy the Sundance Terrace and its pool, cabanas and firepits.

Among the four dining venues on property, the signature Mar | Muntanya, the brain child of executive chef Tyson Peterson, serves Northern Spanish cuisine on the sixth-floor rooftop. Refreshments and shared small plates are available at Contribution, a street-facing lounge; and breakfast, lunch and dinner are served at the Salt Republic. The Market is the place for grab-and-go fare. 

The 23,015-square-foot ballroom, the largest hotel ballroom in Salt Lake City, anchors the property's 60,000 square feet of meeting space, and Sundance Terrace also is available for events, along with 21 breakout rooms, several prefunction areas and the 14,689-square-foot Salt Lake Ballroom. The Broadcast Lounge, one of the brand's first dedicated studios, accommodates virtual and hybrid events.
