Salt Lake City Radisson launches renovation

The Radisson Salt Lake City Downtown is launching a multimillion-dollar makeover spanning the property’s guestrooms, dining outlets, lobby, fitness center and pool. The project is expected to be completed in early 2024, just in time for winter sports season.

“Our location has always made Radisson Salt Lake City Downtown a great choice for travelers, and with the completion of our renovation coming near, the hotel will be on par with other properties in the core of the convention, business and leisure activities of our vibrant downtown area,” John Green, GM of the Radisson Salt Lake City Downtown, said in a statement. 

Salt Lake City’s tourism market has boomed in recent years, bringing several new hotels, retail stores, and entertainment venues to the city’s downtown area. In response, the hotel’s leadership expects the recent investment in elevating the property will help it meet the increased demand for rooms and continue to rival the expanding hospitality market.

Hale Collective, the design firm behind the project, is drawing inspiration from the nearby Wasatch Mountains for the hotel’s new look. Through organic shapes, natural textures and colors inspired by Salt Lake City’s mountain views, the team will integrate Radisson’s signature aesthetic with that of the surrounding area throughout the property. 

A noteworthy change at the property will be the addition of a new Executive Club Lounge off of the lobby. Guests staying in Executive Club Level rooms and suites will have access to a chef’s kitchen serving a daily breakfast bar, evening canapés and all-day snacks. The new space will have community tables and lounge spaces with a modern and bright atmosphere.

The property will also welcome new and updated dining concepts, including Coffee & Market, a new coffee bar concept serving Starbucks coffee and breakfast goods. A newly designed market will be next door. Copper Canyon Grill House & Tavern, the hotel’s on-site restaurant, will also get a few new upgraded touches, including the expansion of a seasonal patio.
