Bottom Line

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.

Location

In Downtown Salt Lake City, near popular tourist sites

Map of The Grand America Hotel

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.
