my house, just north of downtown, was originally built in 1880: since remodeled and added on to. the room has a queen bed, large desk, lots of closet space, and has two big windows to let in lots of light.
it's just a mile from downtown (including the salt palace convention center), so easily walkable, and i have a bike or two that you may be able to use while you stay.
the kitchen is large and well stocked with cooking things, so feel free to use it during your stay.
