Holladay • When it comes to knowing about the clientele for the new 124-room Hyatt Place Hotel that opened Tuesday at the mouth of Big Cottonwood Canyon, area general manager Jeff Olpin enjoys a home-court advantage.
He grew up in the area and knows a bit about the nearby ski resorts in Big and Little Cottonwood canyons.
"Skiing is big in this area," he said. "The business complex is growing by leaps and bounds and we have some high-quality establishments right in our backyard. There is the Market Street Grill and other great restaurants. We needed a new hotel in the area. The Residence Inn [located nearby] always sold out."
