Inn on the Hill Review

Owned and restored by former Salt Lake Tribune publisher Philip McCarthey, this turn-of-the-20th-century Renaissance Revival mansion makes a striking impression with its red-rock exterior and bold painted trim. Inside, it's like stepping into the just-polished parlor and living rooms of a private home, replete with stained-glass windows, pocket doors, and an eye-catching turquoise fireplace. All rooms in the 11,000-square-foot house are unique, and each is named for a Utah landmark. All are very cushy, with big bathtubs and fireplaces.
