Hotel's pool and boutique atmosphere were highlights for former visitors
According to recent guests, room decor is a bit dated

Coupling a traditional ski lodge with 18th-century European decor, this hotel offers guests an alternative to Salt Lake City's flurry of chain lodgings. Previous visitors praised The Grand America's little sibling for its boutique atmosphere and oversized guest rooms (all of which feature complimentary Wi-Fi access, handmade furniture and spacious layouts), although some guests noted the decor could use an update. The pool is also a big hit with travelers, thanks to its half-indoor, half-outdoor design (the sections are connected by a tunnel), while the garden pool lounge is a nice quiet place to relax. Recent visitors also appreciated The Little America Hotel's location, specifying that it's close enough to Salt Lake City's attractions without being in a noisy part of town, which makes it a great home base for families.
