Celebrating East-Coast Style

The summer months make me long for the beach. The ocean breeze, the lapping waves, the salty sand – it all seems so refreshing this time of year. As the closest thing we have to a beach in Salt Lake City smells like brine shrimp, we have to improvise. If you have a summer anniversary, or just need an excuse to get away, consider taking your sweetheart to the coast by booking a night at the Cape Cod Suite at the Anniversary Inn on 5th South in Salt Lake City.

We’re Back!

The Anniversary Inn Blog is back in full swing! And we’d like to start off with a review that was recently submitted by Jill and her husband, complete with pictures of their suite. They are both big fans of Anniversary Inn (aren’t we all?!). In fact, they loved their stay in Logan so much that they booked another getaway night at our South Temple location. Read about their experience below and see if what suits your fancy! Continue reading

Christmas in July is a charity event that will take place on Wednesday, July 15th from 5-8 pm at our Logan location. All donations will go to the Family Place – a child and family support center. Specifically, the Family Place is in need of items such as toys for young children, snacks, and office supplies. This event presents a great way to give at a time of year when we so often forget.

At the event, we will have free hot dogs, sodas, cotton candy, snow cones, and balloons. We’re even bringing a balloon artist and face painter. There will also be drawings for free night stays and tours of all the suites.

Review: “We Love Anniversary Inn!”

My husband Thad and I have been to the Anniversary Inn a few times and it has never disappointed us! Our first stay was for our 1st anniversary in the European Honeymoon suite in Logan, which was very relaxing!

We also stayed in the Bikers Roadhouse (our favorite) for our 5th anniversary

and Jesse James Hideaway for our 8th.

We booked out 9th anniversary trip before we even left and are so excited to go back to stay in the Las Vegas room – since we went to Las Vegas for our actual honeymoon.

Each stay has been better than the last – cheesecake or cupcakes waiting for us, with a cold bottle of cider and a few other treats depending on the room. Also, breakfast delivered right to our room is always delicious! 
We can’t wait for June so we can go back to celebrate our anniversary and my completion of nursing school! It will be a much needed getaway for both of us!
Thank you Christa and Thad! As a huge fan of Anniversary Inn, I’m happy to find fellow enthusiasts! We are happy to hear that you enjoyed your stays and hope to see you again soon.

A Las Vegas Proposal

DSC_0837
I had just moved out of my family home and in with Stephen when he and his mom and stepdad decided that we were going to take a trip to Las Vegas. I was excited to go see the city and go to the places that I had never got to truly see on previous family trips to the Sin City. When we got there I could tell that Stephen was very nervous and seemed stressed. I thought that it was just because we were with his family and were both trying to be on our best behavior.
