The stretch of 100 South between the Salt Palace Convention Center and the Gateway has long been a dead zone between two of Salt Lakes more vibrant corridors.  That will soon change as two hotels are nearing completion, adding 334 hotel rooms and ground-floor retail to corner of 100 South and 300 West.

A surface parking lot and underutilized warehouse were sacrificed to make way for the new hotels.   With the zero setback from the sidewalk and the inclusion of ground-floor retail, the hotels will bring an added street energy to an area that needs is.  Construction of the Hyatt House is mostly finished while the Courtyard by Marriott is framed up to the third floor.
