About the property

1100 sf Downtown One Bedroom with huge Arched Windows with great light.

The location, windows and decor say it all for this loft smack in the middle of downtown Salt Lake City. This top floor, 1100 square foot spacious one bedroom is the crown jewel of the building. Huge arched windows, a vintage fireplace and professional grade 6 burner gas range is great for entertaining or a quiet relaxing dinner at home. This condo is located in the heart of downtown Salt Lake City literally close to absolutely everything! You are only 1-2 blocks away from Gateway, City Creek, Temple Square, Vivint Arena, Capitol Theatre, the Utah Symphony, as well as numerous restaurants and bars all within walking distance. And only a three to five minute walk to the Salt Palace Convention Center (only a block away). The SLC International Airport is only 8 minutes away and can be accessed, if needed, through UTA’s Trax located across the street. If traveling with a car, there is a gated parking lot next to the building with a dedicated covered parking spot for the duration of your stay.

For all the skiers out there, this Condo is only 25-35 minutes to many of the world's most renowned ski resorts such as Canyons, Park City, Deer Valley, Snowbird, Alta, Brighton and Solitude.

The Warehouse Condo was built in 1910 and was originally operated as a grocery warehouse that was later converted to a toy shop called Twirl Town Toys. In 1997 it was again converted into loft condos. The uniqueness of this building will not go unnoticed. With its red brick exterior and rustic brick, timber and exposed ducts interior, it has a very cool industrial feel.

Whether you're in town for a convention or for a fun winter or summer getaway, you will feel right at home in this cozy/urban downtown loft in the heart of Salt Lake City.

About Jocelyn & Reza

My husband and I both grew up in Utah and it will always have a special place in our hearts. We currently go back and forth from NYC to SLC for both work and play. We love downtown SLC and wanted a place for us as well as others to experience all that downtown has to offer. The charm and uniqueness of this condo are irresistible in so many ways, we're so lucky to own it and share it with others. You will just have to see for yourself!

Why Jocelyn & Reza chose Rio Grande

Staying in this building in the heart of downtown SLC is such a unique experience. The Arch Loft itself has so much character that you will want to come back and stay time and time again!

Guestbook comments from the owner

My fiancé and I recently got engaged and wanted to come to SLC to visit some family that she still had not met. We took a chance and rented this loft knowing that it was brand new to vrbo and had no reviews yet. Boy did we score!! Everything from the building to the location and then to the amazing loft was perfect. Everything was so clean and sleek. It felt like we were in a NYC soho loft but we were downtown SLC. The owners were super cool, gave us several recommendations and were very accessible to any questions that we had. I would totally recommend this loft to anyone wanting to have a "downtown upscale" experience.

Our Second Time Around - As sweet as the first

  • 5 of 5

This loft is such a nice spot in the perfect location for Salt Lake City. We went skiing 3 days, which was just a short drive to the mountain. The remainder of the trip we enjoyed the city - Entertainment and lots to do with some of the most recommended restaurants within walking distance. We additionally visited a touristy restaurant 20 minutes away. The condo, with its convenient parking, is the ideal home base to see the city.

Penthouse loft

Jocelyn was very kind and generous. The beautiful apartment was in the center of a delightful town filled with Christmas lights, restaurants, movies and more. We couldn’t have asked for anything better. We’ll definitely recommend this to any friends wishing to stay in SLC!

Amazing Experience😀

  • 5 of 5

we arrived by taxi from Salt Lake City airport (approx $17-25) in cab. Directions that were given to us were easy to understand to access the rental. The loft is large and spacious, warm, spotless clean, bed was very comfy. Washer and dryer available and also coffee maker for your coffee in the morning!! They also provided beautiful soft fresh white towels, body wash, shampoo and conditioner. I was even impressed that they provided cotton pads and body lotion for the ladies. It is in walking distance to town and very accessible to local restaurants aswell....We loved Fincas downstairs (tapas), The Currant(seafood), Eves, Oasis for breakfast - cute shop beside it. We also found a great breakfast place on the way to Park City if you plan to go there called Roots. We had a great time and the loft was everything we wished for and more!! Will be recommending it. Thank you so much for making our experience so wonderful 😀

Unforgettable Loft

  • 5 of 5

I had an incredible stay at the loft. An absolutely stunning place with beautiful design throughout. The loft was spotless, well maintained and everything from the towels to, to the decor, to the views made it a perfect place for a fun getaway. The location couldn't be better in the heart of Downtown Salt Lake. Jocelyn was amazing to work with, providing timely communication that made the entire process easy and stress-free. She even went above and beyond to coordinate an early check-in when finding out the guest prior was leaving the loft early. I travel frequently throughout the country and world, and this is definitely one of the favorite places I have stayed.
