Anniversary Inn

By Michelle Hinkley from 4 Men 1 Lady

For our 13th wedding anniversary my husband and I stayed at Salt Lake's Anniversary Inn on 5th South. Finding a night away was quite an accomplishment since we've had maybe four overnighter's since having kids 8 years ago. Since they offered a room in exchange for an HONEST review how could I resist a night away from kids and responsibilities?

If you're in to themed rooms then the Anniversary Inn is for you!
They have several rooms to choose from at three locations in Utah and one in Boise.  You can pick from an adventurous stay in the Jungle Safari Suite...

Or perhaps something more romantic in the Romeo and Juliet suite.

I was surprised how many different types of rooms they had.  There's a Hawaiian Hideaway, Biker Roadhouse, Bridal Falls, Cape Cod, Phantom of the Opera, Mysteries of Egypt suite...just to name a few.
Now to be honest, I wasn't really sure I was going to be in to the whole themed room idea so I chose the room with the least amount of theatrics, the Presidential Suite.

To my delight the room was very tastefully decorated. Spacious, clean, and quite luxurious. We enjoyed a complimentary bottle of non-naughty, apple bubbly, cheesecake (my favorite) and chocolate truffles. The bed seemed gigantic (maybe because it wasn't full of my kids) and the huge jetted tub was relaxing. Our room also had a gorgeous, unobstructed patio balcony view of downtown Salt Lake and the Capitol.

The building used to be the old Salt Lake City Brewery and shows a few signs of age but it's the age such as the exposed brick walls that give it character and history.

In the morning we were treated to breakfast in bed which was just right. 
 I could have easily gotten used to that life very quickly.
