If you've never stayed at a Salt Lake City Bed and Breakfast, this experience is a must. The entire Salt Lake City Bed and Breakfast is filled with exquisitely carved wood, intricate stenciling and furnished with antiques and floral at every turn. A stay at the "Mansion" is a step back in time with the modern amenities of jetted tubs and wireless Internet. The highlight for many a guest is the wonderful Gourmet Buffet Breakfast every morning. With its hot quiche, fruit bowl, home made Granola and Peach Cobbler no one goes away hungry. The aroma of croissants and sweet-rolls fills the air and remembrances of a time gone by fill the soul. Located in the Heart of Salt Lake City the "Mansion" is within walking distance of "Temple Square", "The Family History Center", four Shopping Malls and all of the down town restaurant district.

We stayed in the "February" room and were thoroughly delighted with our stay. The entire mansion is very quaint. Although it is quite old, it has been very well maintained and shows a detail of craftsmanship that is all but lost in today's construction. Everywhere you look there is evidence of very ornate woodworking. Our room was wonderful. It has a wrought iron stairway that leads to a hot tub situated atop the mansion, with small windows that peak out to the surrounding area--don't worry, there are sheers on the windows and you are so high up that your privacy is perfectly maintained. Also, there is ample hot water to fill the hot tub. I've stayed at places where there is a beautiful hot tub, but you can only fill it half-way before running out of hot water. The bed was very comfortable and the room was well-heated, so despite the mansion's age, you stay warm and very comfortable. The breakfast was excellent as well. They described the main dish as a ham quiche, but it did not have an outer crust--telltale of a true quiche. It was more of a breakfast casserole, with eggs, ham, onions, potatoes, etc. Despite not really being a quiche, it was very well prepared and we both went back for seconds. The meal also included fresh fruit, fresh-baked apple cobbler, a selection of oatmeal, yogurt and cereals, etc. Overall, it was a delightful stay, and we will very likely return.

Enjoyed the history and ambience of the mansion. The jetted tub in the Christmas room didn't work, which was a pretty big disappointment. The DVD remote also didn't work. Glad to get away for the weekend and reconnect with my spouse.

This stay exceeded our expectations! We stayed in September Woods, the reviews I read were so so, but we loved every minute. It's tucked away in the basement and we felt like we had our own little private hotel! Extremely quiet and quaint. The hospitality was so sweet and nice, felt like we were out of town but we were only 20 min away from our home :)

We first stayed in one of the suites in the cottage for our honeymoon. We stayed two days and it was wonderful. We returned 4 years later and stayed in the August room which has the biggest tub I've ever seen in the upstairs bathroom. Breakfast is very good.

What joy! The appointments are luxurious and for my stay I was the lady of the manor! I stepped back in time and was cradled with decor that delighted my senses everywhere I looked. The beds are comfy and well dressed, wide screen tv's, jetted soaker tubs and a sumptuous breakfast. Did I forget to mention the heaping bowls of saltwater taffy? I can't thank you enough and recommend the Armstrong above any other establishment!

My husband and I were celebrating our 8yr anniversary! We loved our first stay 8yrs ago in the February room! This time we stayed in the August room. The people working were exreamly nice. How ever I was disapointed in the quality of bed that was in the room. It leaned to one side making the night very uncomfortable. Also I was disappointed in the quality of pillows in the room. It was the $5 striped pillows from wal-mart. Dirty under the bed. I loved the breakfast it was as amazing as I remembered it.

The entire time was very nice, a wonderful surprise for my wife's birthday. The innkeepers were very accommodating and made us feel appreciated, like real home guests...not hotel patrons. Thank you! We will be back.

We enjoyed our stay on May 12th, but were quite disappointed in some areas. The romance package was very nice. We did have to wait for it to be set up when we arrived. We were told that our voice mail (20 minutes ahead of time) notifying you of our arrival time was not taken due to an "emergency". Do you not include ice in the ice bucket for sparkling cider? Outside of the warm cider, it would have been nice to have a pitcher of water and glasses or cooled bottled water, rather than having to drink from the sink. The room and decor seemed tired and worn out and didn't have the spark or elegance we had hoped would match the signficance and importance of a 25th anniversary celebration. The old stained and broken ceiling tiles look bad. Before using the hot tub we noticed dirt and hairs in the tub which was lousy, The old nasty looking plunger by the toilet matched the tired theme. The wicker chair at the end of the bed is nice but we had to move it over so we could see the tv screen. We couldn't find a plug-in near the head of the bed (for my c-pap machine), so we had to sleep with our heads at the foot of the bed, to use the only plug available. Breakfast was very good, although the fruit bowl was pick over nearly empty, it was difficult to get to the hot items (cobbler, quiche) with no where to put the cover. A roll up lid would be much easier. overall, a C- experience.

My husband and I had a great stay at Armstrong Mansion. Jeannie who works at the mansion was so accommodating to us. Our flight was delayed and she opened the door for us even though it was very late. The breakfast served the next morning was delicious! I loved the homemade granola and the french toast. I highly recommend Armstrong mansion. It is a very well maintained and staying there is like stepping into a time capsule.
