Dining at SLIG
The Hilton Salt Lake City Center is centrally located to some of the best dining Salt Lake City has to offer. Most importantly, because we will be arriving in January, there are literally dozens of places to eat within about a one-block walk; more if you wish to venture out a bit. We will make sure you receive plenty of information when you arrive. Here are the highlights:
Starbucks: This little treasure is tucked just inside the entrance to the Trofi Restaurant. Most similar to a Barnes and Noble type Starbucks, they offer beverages, breakfast sandwiches, and pastries, and a limited selected of sandwiches and soup. They are open until about 4:00 pm daily.
Trofi Restaurant: Order from the menu or enjoy a hot breakfast buffet with omelets and waffles made to order. Trofi is presently open for breakfast only, from 6:30 am to 10:00 am weekdays, and 11:00 am weekends, but the Hilton staff are working on the possibility of opening Trofi during lunch over SLIG dates.
Fine Dining in the Hilton:
Hilton is also home to Spencer’s for Steaks and Chops. Voted “Best Steakhouse” for eight consecutive years, a USDA Spencer’s steak is a mouth-watering experience. Also awarded best “Wine List,” Spencer’s includes a bar/lounge area for more casual fare.
Spencer’s Bar: The gathering place for a casual drink while staying at the Hilton. Located in the front of Spencer’s restaurant.
Nearby: The Hilton is within a short walking distance of a variety of restaurants, including the Olive Garden, Inferno Cantina, Red Rock Brewing Company, PF Chang’s, Benihana, Market Street Grill, J Wong's Asian Bistro, Siegfried's Delicatessen, and Squatter’s Pub, just to mention a few. You will find everything from sushi to cheesesteaks within a two-block walk.
If you are feeling more adventurous, expand your walk to two full blocks to experience City Creek Center, which has a wide variety of restaurants as well as a food court, or walk one block east of the Hilton to the TRAX line and head toward Temple Square Dining options or The Gateway food court and restaurants.
