  • Large fitness center and a sauna

Bottom Line

The 850-room Little America Hotel is one of Salt Lake City's grand dames. The lobby has an elegant (if somewhat stuffy) feel with marble floors, wood-paneled walls, and a large central chandelier. The massive rooms are decorated with pastels and floral patterns (maintaining the nice but somewhat dated feel), and guests should note that though the garden rooms and tower rooms share a similar decor and size, tower rooms have been updated with nicer bathrooms, flat-screen TVs, and iPod docks, while garden rooms have mint-green, 70s-style bathrooms and tube TVs. The indoor/outdoor pool and large outdoor pool and Jacuzzi are a big draw, as is the spacious fitness center and lovely sauna.

On Main Street in Downtown Salt Lake City

Map of Little America Hotel

The Little America Hotel is located in Downtown Salt Lake City on South Main Street. Downtown Salt Lake City 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.
