Little America Hotel
Ranked #12 of 75 Hotels in Salt Lake City
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed December 5, 2013

The hotel is more like a complex - a main building and a bunch of surrounding low-rise buildings. My room was in one of the low-rises near the back, and it was certainly comfortable. Nice bed, good bathrooms, and a small patio. It's not dead-center, but it's certainly convenient to walk to pretty much everything you'd want to see in the city. If you're not used to Utah drinking rules you might get thrown for a loop in their bar, but it's laid out well at least. Head to The Bayou up the street if you're in need of real beer.

If you get a decent Priceline rate, this place is absolutely worth it. SLC is a beautiful city.

Wonderful place to stay. Rooms were very comfortable. Nicely updated bathrooms and showers. The resturant has the best breakfast buffet that I've ever had. The Guest Services staff is very freindly and had great information on the city and local resturants. Will most definetly stay there again.

I have stayed at Little America several times and it is always a very comfortable place to stay. The rooms are not sleek and modern, but they are very comfortable and very clean. The coffee shop has been recently remodeled and is a through back to diners of old, and the food is excellent. The Trax line runs in front of the hotel, which makes getting around very convenient. I highly recommend Little America.

Stayed at the Little America and went to a Jazz game. Can ride the trax line right to the game from the hotel. We rode a rickshaw home from the game. Hot was clean and has a great location. While trip lots of fun

This is an older hotel but is clean and comfortable. The location is good for downtown attractions and close to the Trax line. The pool and workout facilities are also very nice. The staff was friendly and check-in was smooth. Easy in and out with plenty of parking. Highly recommend Little America.

We have stayed here at least half a dozen times, typically when coming in to Salt Lake for skiing, or as a gateway to Arches/Canyonlands National Park, or Dinosaur national monument. I don't know what separates 4 star and 5 star for some people, but in my mind this is 5 star! We have stayed in the Grand America next door, which is clearly a 5 star property, and I like the Little America better! The Grand America has more granite, more art, and grandness, but that doesn't impress me as much as comfort, service, and convenience. Just being bigger doesn't make you better in my mind. Sometimes it makes you less convenient. More granite doesn't necessarily make you better.

We typically stay in the tower rooms, which are huge and very comfortable. Cleanliness is a given. Beds are very comfortable. View isn't as important to us as light and openness, and the rooms we have stayed in never disappoint. We have usually requested a mountain view, but have had city views also which is not your disappointing urban experience. Salt Lake simply isn't a claustrophobic experience.

Dining has always been satisfying, from the coffee shop/diner to the steak house. The food is good, solid American fare. Room service is exceptional. If you have breakfast, don't pass up the muffins!

Service is also exceptional. It shows you can be friendly, courteous and efficient at the same time.

We typically self-park, because no matter how fast and efficient valet is, it still takes time. There is an ample parking structure under the hotel, and lots of space in the surrounding parking lots.

We have never stayed in the garden rooms, but they look to be very nice, and a great value.

Speaking of value, we have found the Little America with AARP discount to be in the same price range as much lesser hotels. Don't be afraid to check out the discounts. Often, the garden rooms are cheaper than one of the run of the mill chains.

As for the size of the room, the double queen tower rooms will have ample space for a family of 4. The garden double queens would appear to have ample room also, but I can only speak from personal experience about the tower.

This has a western style and feel to it. The lobby area has a huge fire place with overstuffed leather chairs and couches and is very open. No cramped spaces here!

Now for the complaints. This really is more a Salt Lake complaint, but a complaint nonetheless. The drinks are lilliputian. You will be disappointed by the mixed drinks. The service will be fantastic, the drinks will be tiny. That is just the way it is in Salt Lake. There is, however, a state liquor store 2 blocks away.

They say they have the best pool in the west, and I must agree. Bring a swim suit!

You will not be disappointed by your stay at the Little America, of course unless you want a mixed drink!

Room Tip: Tower rooms are wonderful. We have never had a bad experience. East facing rooms have a great view...
