“Don't judge this hotel by it's cover.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2013

Stayed here for a conference in July and couldn't have been more pleased. Although, I have to admit when we arrive I was a little disappointed by the appearance of the hotel, as they were undergoing construction, the interior of the hotel and the room more than made up for it. The staff was friendly, and the rooms were exceptionally roomy and clean. The location was within walking distance of the light rail, so it made it easy to get to the hotel from the airport and back when we departed. Also, free to ride to downtown for shopping and meals on our free time. Only suggestion to hotel is to staff the Sports Bar with more staff at breakfast, lunch & in the evenings, only one staff to accommodate large crowd of people from the conference was not sufficient.
Otherwise, trip was wonderful.

Stayed her back in May for my anniversary. I was extremely disappointed. The room and hallways smelled of mildew. When I check the bed for bed bugs I saw a huge 24 inch yellow stain on the mattress. It was disgusting. The carpet was dirty as well. The table was sticky. The personnel at the front desk were cold. So not like Utah. My Aunt and Uncle used to stay here when I was a kid. It was nice, now it seem everything went in to the Grand America and they don't care about their sister property.
BTW we stayed in a tower room.

This hotel is in a convenient location, walking distance to the city and near airport and public transport. The breakfast buffet is extensive and well priced. We requested maintenance when we arrived and someone showed up within minutes to address our concern.

Room Tip: We stayed in a garden style room, but the tower rooms are superior

The Personnel of this establishment are top notch. They are readily available to assist and with a smile. Everything appears to be in great shape. The garden side rooms are modest in size. The beds are a bit hard. My husband didn't sleep too well due to this. Lots of convenient parking and not far from the light rail. I personally would skip their restaurant. Although they give you a lot of food for the price, the steak was not seasoned and the scallops were just ok. Because of the quality of taste, I'd say it's not worth the asking price. There are two pools, the one in the main building being much nicer than the garden side pool. It is adequate for families, business, couples etc. Wifi worked very well and was easy to access..

When we walked into the lobby I was thrilled--the place looked great. We had booked a courtside room and when we drove around there , it was very pretty. Parked right outside the door and the room was just lovely. Beautifully decorated, nice wooden blinds, and a gorgeous bathroom. It was a pleasant walk back through the pool area to get onto the main street too.

The only downside I can think off was the spotty wifi reception in our room--the lobby location worked great.

There's a tram stop close to the hotel in the free zone which we used a lot during our stay. Definitey recommend Little America

Absolutely gorgeous hotel!!! Our room was on the 12th floor and had a beautiful view. The train/trolley/tram ran right past the hotel so we were able to go practically anywhere. From the name, I was expecting a roach motel but instead got glamorous, sexy, old school, honest-to-goodness hotel. We were totally spoiled!
