    VRBO rentals

  • You might also want to consider renting a home or apartment through or a similar site. (At I usually sort by “price low to high” and use the “more filters” to specify if I need internet, multiple bathrooms, etc. If you use the map feature to see which homes/apartments are closest to the Convention Center, the Salt Palace Convention Center is on the left/west side of West Temple between 200 South and South Temple. You’ll need to have a rental car or use a taxi/Uber/public transportation for many of these rentals. If you rent a car, there’s parking beneath the Convention Center for $10/day and I always get there before 9 am and have always been able to find parking. There’s other public parking as well, but this is the best parking for this convention.) I’ve used vrbo rentals in four different states with great results, but I’ve also seen properties that appeared to be scams, so read the property reviews and be cautious.
