In Downtown Salt Lake City, near popular tourist sites
The Grand America is in Downtown Salt Lake City, within walking distance or a short drive of popular sites. (Note, however, that it's a bit of a trek to walk to Temple Square from here.) Downtown has beautiful views of the Wasatch Mountains and lots of funky, interesting shops -- including more than 20 art galleries and antique shops.
Utah's capital, Salt Lake City, is nestled in one of the most beautiful areas of the country -- between the Wasatch Mountains and Great Salt Lake. Salt Lake is known for its stiff religious affiliations, but it still offers a decent nightlife scene, and is becoming increasingly popular with nature lovers and adventure sports fans.
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. Big rooms are traditional and sophisticated (if in need of some updating) and the decadent marble bathrooms are a highlight. The amenities live up to the standard set by the rest of the hotel: The fitness center is large and modern, the pools are lovely, and the spa is one of the best in the area.
