Short review: This lodging and its people wowed us, (and it is not often that a hotel does that). The folks here are very gracious, the food in the "coffee shop" amazingly good, the room spotless and the bed so comfortable that I had to buy one of the pillows ($40). The wi-fi worked great in our non-tower room.
Longer: We have often stayed at the Radisson, which we like, and had a terrible experience at Xmas time at the Marriott Residence Inn (definitely has gone down hill), so we decided to try a new place in Salt Lake. The Little America had new lower rates and our Courtyard (motel-like) room seemed affordable so we tried it out for two nights. Incredible.
The room (all are non-smoking, a firm king with 5 great pillows) is spacious, spotless, very well kept up, great tv, and fine, free wi-fi. Thick, generous towels. My wife loved the pillows so much that we bought one. Details in the room are not simply plucked from a Motel Supply catalogue. Everything functioned well (except the alarm clock/radio, whose radio alarm came on at 8:12 p.m. and I couldn't find how to disable it). Parking is free, location of the hotel right downtown but feels like a calm oasis.
While I had a coffee maker delivered to the room, I chose to go to the Coffee bar (different from the Coffee Shop Restaurant) in the lobby area with its very good coffee ($2) and free refills. We also ate at the Coffee Shop restaurant. Jenifer had the Roast Turkey dinner. I had the liver and bacon. Both dinners included a large, fresh, not-from-a-bag salad, great rolls, a truly baked potato (not steamed in a foil wrapper) good portions, and fresh carrots with zucchini. Plus ice cream. For about $14 each.
It was our interactions with the staff, however, that really made our stay special. Every person was gracious, friendly, obviously well trained, cared about working there, and made us feel special. (Thank You Staff!)
Would recommend the Little America to anyone. Location, price, comfort and, especially the staff. This will be our new home away from home in Salt Lake. Do not hesitate about staying here.
