One of Utah's romantic getaways, the Hotel Monaco is turning 13 years old and is getting ready to show off a new look in August.

“Guests might not realize that every room, including the iconic lobby in Salt Lake City’s Hotel Monaco is getting a whole new design,” says Kelly Elggren, sales and marketing director for Hotel Monaco, Salt Lake City. “We are so excited to greet our guests with a completely new hotel. The bright, colorful design will delight our regulars and wow newcomers.”

To celebrate its birthday and renovation, the Kimpton’s Hotel Monaco Salt Lake City is inviting Salt Lake City locals to indulge in some Blue Bunny ice cream to beat the heat. Grab a spoon and bowl at the main entrance on July 28 between 4 and 6 p.m., and take a sneak peek at the hotel's renovations.

Come to the outside main entrance of the hotel to enjoy some ice cream and take a sneak peek of the hotel’s full renovation that is almost complete. Hotel Monaco, 155 W. 200 South, 801-595-0000
