The Grand America Hotel

Old World opulence in Salt Lake City

Though The Grand America Hotel lies in the heart of downtown Salt Lake City, don't let that fool you into believing you can't unwind here. Nestled against the scenic backdrop of the Wasatch Mountains and the capital’s urban skyline, this 775-room property offers a serene Old World-inspired stay.

The 24-story white granite building catches your attention from the outside but is only a small glimpse as to the grandeur that awaits indoors. The moment you enter the lobby, you’ll be immersed in a tranquil, marble-clad atmosphere that allows you to leave the bustle of the city behind.

Whether you choose to relax with a facial at the multi-level spa or with a little retail therapy at an assortment of onsite shops, this is an elegant escape in the shadow of northern Utah’s impressive peaks.

Our Inspector's Highlights

  • Filled with lush scenery, a trickling fountain and hundreds of flowers that perfume the air, The Grand America Hotel’s courtyard provides a serene retreat for all senses.
  • Mindful touches are second nature at this Salt Lake City hotel. Upon arrival, you’ll be greeted with fresh flowers, housemade cookies and citrus-infused water — and that's just in the lobby.
  • Whether you’re looking to get dolled up for a night out or for a full day of indulgence, The Grand Spa is the place for peaceful pampering. Three stories of opulence include a salon, a spacious fitness facility, an indoor pool and 18 treatment rooms.
  • Afternoon tea is an elegant tradition at The Grand America Hotel. With daily seatings (two on weekends), the service features delicate bites (scones and clotted cream, finger sandwiches and tartlets), loose-leaf teas from porcelain pots and an array of artisan hot chocolates.

Things to Know

  • All rooms have stunning floor-to-ceiling windows, but the best views are in the main tower.
  • Whether you are visiting for your birthday, an anniversary or just because, the luxury hotel loves to help you celebrate. Let staff know ahead of time to make your stay even more memorable with a rose petal turndown, one-of-a-kind gift baskets or chocolate-dipped strawberries.
  • If you don't have time for an overnight stay, The Grand America is still worth a stop for its afternoon tea, Five-Star spa, grand art tour and live music.

The Rooms

  • The rooms are exquisitely decorated in rich colors and Old World-inspired designs. The cherry wood furniture is intricately carved, and the walls are lined with patterned wallpaper giving off a beautiful, traditional feel.
  • Take in Utah’s famous dusky purple sunsets from your own private balcony or through beautiful high-arched windows.
  • Covered in Italian marble and adorned with gold accents, the spacious bathrooms offer a serene spot to relax with deep-soaking tubs, glass-enclosed showers and well-stocked vanities.

Nearby Attractions

  • Less than a mile from The Grand America Hotel is open-air mall City Creek Center. Here you can shop an assortment of high-end luxury brands while soaking in the scenes of downtown.
  • For a fun night out, take a 15-minute stroll up to Eccles Theatre. Opened in 2016, the venue is a hot spot for touring Broadway plays, concerts and variety shows.
  • Five minutes north of the landmark hotel is Vivint Smart Home Arena, home of local NBA team Utah Jazz. Catch a game or grab tickets to a big-name concert from acts like Elton John, Carrie Underwood or Ariana Grande.
  • If the outdoors are more your style, head for the mountains. The luxury hotel is a short drive away from a handful of alpine resorts where you can enjoy hiking and biking in the summer or skiing and snowboarding in the winter.
