    Like last time I stayed here because a conference was being held in-house I've vowed that I will look elsewhere next time. I really wasn't coming back. And I defaulted last minute to RL again because I waited so late to book during a huge conference. Rooms were scarce, and I thought "at least I know this place." And, I'm really done this time. Pros: a few really hard working staff members that (through obviously harried) try hard to be cheerful. And the location is just an 8.00 Uber to the Salt Palace. Great front desk staff and package receiving, no problem. Cons: Almost everything else. The restaurant is a disaster. Where do I even start? They served me severely spoiled salmon so bad that it made everyone at the table gag. Tried to pass of instant apple cinnamon oatmeal (yeah, the kiddy stuff) as "organic steel cut oats" and they are regularly out of basic things like french fries. Wait times to get a coffee in the morning, or pay for the buffet are daunting. Don't go down there in a hurry. More importantly, don't expect a coffee maker in your room, or even a working tub. I did get a really overworked and exhausted maintenance manager to finally find a plastic plumbing pipe end fitting the right size to stuff into the drain hole and mostly hold water, and it took a couple of days for them come back and fix it as promised. The bathroom door handle is falling out of the door. Bottom line? The RL Hotel is an idea that had great promise, and simply didn't work out.
