Getting to Salt Lake City
By Air: The Salt Lake International Airport serves as a major hub for Delta Airlines.It is also served by American, Frontier, JetBlue, Southwest, United and US Airways, and their affiliates in two terminals.
By Rail or Bus: Local visitors may consider the commuter light rail system, FrontRunner, which provides easy access into Salt Lake from points as far south as Provo and as far north as Ogden. Amtrak’s California Zephyr serves Salt Lake City from the San Francisco Bay area in the west and from Chicago, Illinois to the east.
By Car: Unless you plan to take a drive up the canyon or take a sight-seeing trip outside of Salt Lake, you probably don’t need a rental vehicle. Everything you need is within a short walking distance, or easily accessible by lightrail. However, if you are arriving by car, the Hilton website includes driving directions.
Getting to the Hilton Hotel
The Salt Lake International Airport is just minutes away from downtown. The Hilton SLC Downtown is accessible via taxi, airport shuttle, bus, and lightrail (one block walk). Complete information may be found on the Salt Lake International Airport Transportation page.
There are two shuttles that service the Hiton from the Airport: The Hilton Hotel has a contracted rate with Haroon Transportation. The fee is $12 per person each way. There is no need to make a reservation if you are arriving before 8:00 pm as this shuttle runs about every 20 minutes to/from the hotel. Hilton guests should call 855-316-6888 once bags have been claimed. Your return shuttle is as easy as asking the concierge at the hotel for the daily schedule.
Express Shuttle Utah also provides service to any downtown hotel, including the Hilton. The fee is $10 per person each way. Reservations are recommended at least 24 hours in advance and may be made online or by calling their 24-hour reservation line, 800-397-0773.
