Auto Roadside Assistance Destination of the Day


For family fun or for business, the Grand American Hotel pampers you from the heart of the American West.

“The Grand America Hotel in Salt Lake City, Utah, is aptly named because of its large public areas and spacious guest rooms, all decorated in a lovely Old World style while offering contemporary conveniences. The hotel’s European decor, with French cherry-wood furniture, chandeliers from Murano and Milan, and Carrera Italian marble bathrooms, creates a setting more sophisticated than one might expect in Salt Lake City. The lobby has multiple areas to sit, hold informal meetings, visit with friends, or just enjoy the hotel’s beauty. The staff is superbly dressed, with women wearing Chanel-style uniforms in a pale green/almost blue worsted wool.

Perfect for Business

This hotel is an excellent choice for a business trip because of its location and business center. The 24-story property is set on 10 acres in downtown Salt Lake City, five city blocks (one-half mile) from Temple Square, home of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, and the famous Mormon Tabernacle Choir. Trax, the city’s light-rail system, has a stop in front of the hotel, which makes it very convenient for guests to catch a free ride to the local businesses, shops, and tourist attractions in the downtown area.The hotel is a good choice for romantic getaways, too, because the rooms are cozy and the spa is luxurious. Hiding away in one of the comfortable suites would be a wonderful place to start a honeymoon.

Family Fun

The Grand America Hotel is ideally located for getaway or family travelers who want to explore the city and the surrounding mountains. The hotel offers easy access to sports, music, and theater venues in downtown Salt Lake City. But, it’s also very close to the highways that lead to the activities in the Wasatch Mountain range, which frames the city’s skyline and is only 30 to 40 minutes away. In the wintertime, skiers and snowboarders who prefer urban nightlife stay here. More than six major ski areas are located within a 50-minute drive by private car, although some guests prefer to travel in one of the resort or private-company shuttles that transport skiers from the city to the slopes.

The hotel is a 10 to 15 minute ride from the Salt Lake International Airport; so complimentary airport shuttle transportation is another option.”
