Atmosphere - North Of Hell Tour

With the exception of Prince and Bob Dylan, Minnesota is seldom mentioned as a hotbed of musical talent. But quietly, the land of 10,000 lakes has boasted one of the most venerable duos in hip-hop in recent memory. Since the release of their first official album Overcast! in 1997, MC Sean "Slug" Daley and producer Anthony "Ant" Davis have built one of the most loyal followings in a genre where even the most skilled artists are not guaranteed lasting relevance.

Now, with their eight official full-length studio album Southsiders dropping earlier this month, the Rhymesayers originators celebrated more than two decades of making music together.

Hotel Monaco Earns Place on List of the Best Hotels in Salt Lake City

Published: 02/04/2013

UtahBusiness.com -- Kimpton’s Hotel Monaco Salt Lake City was recently named one of the 2013 Best Hotels in Salt Lake City by U.S. News & World Report.

The 2013 Best Hotels are calculated based on the aggregate opinion of travel experts and guests expressed through awards, recommendations, and ratings.

"With our recent top-to-bottom renovation, I'm excited the Hotel Monaco Salt Lake City has earned this prestigious recognition," said general manager MaryLynn Beck. "We provide so many unique and fun amenities, like our 'Live Like a Local' offerings, our wellness program and our fun and frisky animal print robes. We are Salt Lake's ‘Guilty Pleasure,’ and we love sharing that with our guests."

To create this year's rankings, U.S. News factored in the prominence of industry awards a hotel receives along with its reputation among travel experts and guests. In total, 1,639 U.S. luxury hotels and 273 Caribbean hotels were analyzed for the 2013 rankings. Only a fraction of these scored high enough to be named Best Hotels by U.S. News.

"This is our third year ranking hotels, and the bar continues to climb for luxury properties," said Chad Smolinski, vice president of rankings and reviews at U.S. News & World Report. "Desirable amenities and hotel loyalty programs will no longer suffice. People are seeking hotels that go above and beyond to give their guests an unforgettable experience. Hotels that consistently meet the high expectations of experts and travelers are recognized in our rankings."
