Marriott TownPlace Suites

Kimball Investment Company is building a six-story Marriott TownePlace Suites that is nearly framed-out directly south of the Salt Palace Convention Center on the south side of the 100 West block of 200 South.  The 95-room extended-stay hotel replaces a surface parking lot directly west of the Holiday Inn Express on West Temple and 200 South.  The project will maintain a public mid-block walkway that connects 200 South to Pierpont Avenue.
