How it Ranks: The Grand America Hotel ranks #1 out of 100 Salt Lake City Hotels based on an evaluation of expert ratings and awards, as well as user reviews. The hotel scored high enough to make the exclusive U.S. News list of the Best Hotels in the USA.

Our Take: As the bigger sibling to the popular Little America Hotel, The Grand America Hotel leads the boutique pack in Salt Lake City. Located downtown, this large property is decked out in Victorian motifs, such as gilded wall paneling, ornate vases and antique furniture. Guests love the elegant feel of this hotel because, as they note, the fancy decor doesn't take away from the comfort. Guest rooms are ornate, but the beds are comfortable, the bathrooms are large and the in-room features (like the flat-screen TVs and iPod docking stations) are modern. The hotel's long list of services — which include complimentary wireless Internet access, airport transportation, a pool and kid-friendly amenities — also earn this hotel a thumbs-up. Visitors especially appreciate the numerous discounts offered by The Grand America, which allow for savings at the Grand Spa and the on-site Garden Café. And while the hotel's design is high-end, guests note that the staff lacks any signs of pretention, displaying warm and friendly manners.
