Visitors say the property offers the perfect blend of comfort and elegance
Extra cost to use the indoor pool
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, crystal candeliers 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 elegant, but the beds are comfortable, the bathrooms are large and the in-room features (like the flat-screen TVs and complimentary wireless internet) are modern. The hotel's long list of services –which include an indoor pool (daily fee applies) and kid-friendly amenities – also earn this hotel a thumbs-up. And while the hotel's design is high-end, guests note that the staff lacks any signs of pretention, displaying warm and friendly manners.

With its white Bethel-granite exterior, this 24-story luxury hotel dominates the landscape a few blocks south of downtown. Inside the beveled-glass and brass doors, you step into a world of Italian marble floors and walls and pure old-world style – think English wool carpets, French furniture and tapestries, and colorful Murano-glass chandeliers.

Fodor's Choice



Travelers may come for northern Utah's breathtaking grand peaks (visible from downtown Salt Lake City), but equally remarkable is the towering presence of the 24-story Grand America Hotel. The massive white-stone building is a landmark in downtown Salt Lake City, punctuating the urban skyline while reflecting the dusky purple high desert sunsets from the windows of its 775 rooms.

Forbes Travel Guide Four Star Awards 2019


This 775-room property is the most luxurious in Salt Lake City, and offers guests old-world charm on a grand scale. Its classic style is characterized by warm wood paneling, Italian marble accents, Venetian chandeliers, and wrought iron or white balustrade balconies that overlook well-groomed courtyards.



Inspired by the charm of Europe's classic hotels, the Grand was crafted from the finest materials, such as Italian chandeliers and marble, West African woods and French tapestries. ... If you've brought the family, you may want to consider a suite; pick up a kid kit or inquire about the baby’s first program.
