In case you missed one or more of the Salt Lake Chamber’s Utah Business Reports on KSL NewsRadio, here is a recap of what we talked about this week.
As accessible as Salt Lake City is with TRAX and the new SLC Bike Share program, sometimes you need a car to get from point A to point B. This month, Enterprise Rent-A-Car launched its CarShare program. It is a membership-based car sharing program that provides cars parked on the streets in the Salt Lake City Metro Area and surrounding University campuses.
Enterprise CarShare provides an alternate method of transportation for people who walk, bike, take public transportation, or just need an additional vehicle for work or fun. Enterprise CarShare gives you access to a vehicle by the hour, day, or overnight, 24/7, so you can go where you want, when you want. It’s completely automated, and once you’re a member, all you need is internet access to rent an Enterprise CarShare vehicle.
Membership in the CarShare program includes fuel, a dedicated parking spot, maintenance, and physical damage/liability coverage for members 18 years old and over with a valid driver’s license.
If you join Enterprise CarShare before January 31, 2014, then Enterprise will waive your first-year’s annual membership fee and application fee. Just visit EnterpriseCarShare.com/slc.
Adapting to the times and needs of people is crucial for business today. That’s the reason the Salt Lake Inn has upgraded comfort and convenience with its recent renovation.
The new owners have reopened The Salt Lake Inn after a complete multi-million dollar renovation of this landmark hotel located midway between Salt Lake City International Airport and the many attractions of historic downtown Salt Lake City.
The Salt Lake Inn has many new features that families and business travelers alike will enjoy, including upgraded rooms with high-speed internet access and 37-inch flat-screen HD TVs.
The lobby, public areas and the dining room also received a renovation, featuring the most modern technologies and high-end finishes so there’s a perfect meeting space for your needs.
The Salt Lake Inn is located at 1659 West North Temple, just down the street from the heart of Utah’s capital city.
