Shilo Inn changes hands, to undergo major renovations

Published: 01/24/2014
By Celeste Tholen Rosenlof, -- The distinctive red neon lights of Shilo Inn will no longer light up the hotel on West Temple after it undergoes major renovations.

Last week, the hotel changed hands to the Burgess Group, a locally owned property management company. Burgess will renovate and update the building interior and exterior, removing the neon lighting that has glowed on the building for 40 years and all other resemblances of the Shilo Inn.

“There won’t be a single piece of furniture, carpet, wall covering, light figure that won’t be brand new,” said president of the Burgess Group, Jim Burgess.

The renovation that could cost up to $10 million will begin in the next three to five months, Burgess said, and is expected to be done by the end of 2014.

During the renovation, the hotel will remain in operation as Shilo Inn, but will be reopened after its completion as a Holiday Inn Express. The renovation will meet Holiday Inn’s requirements for amenities, including a complimentary breakfast area, Burgess said.

Holiday Inn approached the Burgess Group about the partnership, as the company does not currently hold any properties in downtown Salt Lake City.
