Let’s take a look!
First Dual-brand Hotel in Salt Lake City Opens
The Le Méridien Salt Lake City Downtown and Element Salt Lake City Downtown are now open for guests. The dual-branded property marks Element’s 100th property worldwide and the first Le Méridien property in Utah.
Le Méridien Salt Lake City Downtown has 144 guest rooms and suites, while the Element Salt Lake City Downtown has 126 rooms and suites. Marriott says that the Le Méridien will become Salt Lake City’s first hotel with an expansive rooftop bar.
Between the 2 properties, there will be several food and beverage options between the two properties, from a French and New Orleans restaurant to a rooftop bar featuring artisanal cocktails. Guests will have access to a rooftop fitness center and nearly 8,400 square feet of meeting space. Both properties are also pet-friendly.
The hotels are just 6 miles from Salt Lake City International Airport (SLC) and is adjacent to Vivint Arena, home of the Utah Jazz.
Element will cater to travelers looking for a longer-stay option, while Le Méridien will have a more upscale vibe.
“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, Marriott’s Global Brand and Marketing Officer in a statement.
Both properties will participate in the Marriott Bonvoy program, which means travelers can earn and redeem points at the hotels. Award nights at Le Méridien start at 31,000 Marriott Bonvoy points, while the Element starts at 21,000 Marriott Bonvoy points per night for dates this spring.
Marriott points are among the easiest out there to earn. Chase and American Express each have Marriott Bonvoy-earning personal and business credit cards, and you’ll start earning points immediately on every purchase. Plus, you’ll earn a welcome bonus once minimum spending requirements are met, generally within the first 3 months after card approval.
Hot Tip: Check out this guide to learn all the ways you can earn Marriott Bonvoy points!
The dual openings of the Le Méridien and Element is unique from other hotel openings. Even better, both hotels are pretty reasonable when using Marriott Bonvoy points, and will be a solid redemption if you find yourself in Salt Lake City!
