This is Fred Ball for Zions Bank, speaking on business.
What Salt Lake City corporation can offer the public four restaurants in three different buildings, 23 banquet rooms, meeting facilities for groups of eight people to 600, and a hotel, all with convenient complimentary parking?
Well, if you answered "Temple Square Hospitality," you would be absolutely right.
Previously known as the Hotel Temple Square Corporation, the organization operates the food facilities at the Joseph Smith Memorial Building, the Lion House and the Inn at Temple Square, which incidentally, is a four diamond, AAA property, and a favorite of many business travelers.
Event planners have discovered that Temple Square Hospitality provides outstanding facilities for any type or size of gathering. There are a variety of meeting rooms equipped with top of the line audio/visual equipment, wireless high speed Internet access and all accessories to make business meetings and gatherings successful.
In fact, last year the Lion House served over 140,000 guests and many of these were tourists. It's a popular treat for visitors to eat in Brigham Young's historic home. The Garden and the Roof restaurants on the top floor of the Joseph Smith Memorial Building provide not only great food and ambiance but one of the best views of downtown Salt Lake City from their ceiling to floor windows.
Passages, the restaurant at The Inn at Temple Square directly across the street from Abravanel Hall, is extremely popular with Utah Symphony and Opera fans. (I love the orange rolls and the raspberry/honey butter at Passages!)
When the organization changed its name, the motto was placed right below the corporate logo, which states, "Service. Care. Tradition." Indeed, business meeting coordinators, wedding planners and party givers will all receive service, care and tradition when they call Temple Square Hospitality.
