The Grand America Hotel Review

With its white Bethel-granite exterior, this 24-story luxury hotel dominates the landscape a few blocks south of downtown. Inside the beveled-glass and brass doors, you step into a world of Italian marble floors and walls and pure Old World style—think English wool carpets, French furniture and tapestries, and colorful Murano-glass chandeliers. The posh guest rooms average 700 square feet. Most have views and small balconies. One of the most visible legacies of the 2002 Winter Olympics, this is a great place to sit back with room service and revel in some pampering. The big outdoor pool and indoor spa are among the best in the city.

    The Grand America Hotel Review

    Our room with two comfortable queen beds was considerably larger than usual and was clean and nicely furnished.
    Our only complaint about the room was that it had no coffemaker. However, as I was checking out I commented about this and learned coffeemakers were available upon request. I had looked around the room and seen nothing in the hotel literature to indicate this.
    Chocolate chip cookies and citrus-flavored water were available by check-in every day.
    We had excellent steaks in the hotel restaurant. The breakfast buffet was also good.
    There is a stop for a free (within the downtown area)trolley that is handy for the uphill trip to Temple Square or a large mostly outdoor shopping center.
