Random choice of this hotel for a recent conference. Wow. Spotless housekeeping. The staff were friendly and engaging. Turndown service at night, complimentary wifi, reasonably priced fantastic breakfast buffet. I would not stay anywhere else in Salt Lake.

The Grand America is about 10-15 years but has the look and feel of world class hotel and gardens, with good restaurants. One could easily get "lost" in the hotels, it is huge yet small. A bellman pointed out a pattern in the hallway rugs which "lead one" to the elevator banks. Very clever touch. Rooms are spacious, comfortable, and "nicely" finished. There is one very nice touch, every evening the room is turned down, and music is playing softly. Another nice touch, when you turn on the TV, the sound is set to "soft" rather than blasting. The best part however, is the staff across the board. Desk, concierge, bell persons, wait persons, whomever, pleasant, considerate, very helpful. This has been a delightful six days, feeling very much at home even being far from home.

For medical reasons, we have to come to Salt Lake City at least twice, up to four times a year. Ever since we started staying at the Grand, those trips are something I look forward to!
We love the spacious suites, the deep bathtub, the plush robes, and the balcony. The turndown service is great. And the staff is wonderful. On one of our trips we were delayed by car trouble, and arrived after midnight, tired and hungry. I had asked for some cheese and fruit to be waiting for us in the room, and there was a wonderful spread. Not cheap,but I didn't expect that in a five star hotel. Even when there is a problem, in our experience, if you make your complaint known right away, the staff will do their utmost to make things right.
The decor in the hotel is old-fashioned, classy European, which we appreciate.
We recently stayed in the Ritz-Carlton in Moscow, Russia, and while there thought longingly of the Grand, for the friendly staff, attentive service, and airy rooms.
It is our home away from home!

Room Tip: Higher floors, as said many times in the previous reviews.

What luxury. Spacious, well lit suite. His and Her bathrooms :) Comfortable bed and seating area. Good size working desk. Rooms and hallways were quiet. Wonderful, relaxing massage for stress reduction. The spa was under renovation so hotel rooms had been converted temporarily. That is the only reason the spa didn't get 5 stars. Cafe was quiet with delicious food. I had the most beautiful bowl of oatmeal for breakfast. We like and use the trax trains to get around town. It is so convenient to have it at the closest intersection.

I am staying here for a Conference that takes place at The Salt Palace, and I am happy to say I have never stayed anywhere so elegant, beautiful, and fantastic. This place has everything you could need and / or want, and very well accommodates business travelers. Not only is the hotel itself exquisite, but the mood it immediately creates is one of high end comfort. (Harpist playing in the lounge entrance, large comfortable chairs, sparkling chandeliers, older paintings.)

The bathrooms are incredible in size, have a huge COMFORTABLE tub, plus an all glass-sided stand-up shower with a multi-setting shower head. It becomes hard to decide where to do your makeup or get ready, as there are 2 very large vanity areas, one inside the tub room, one in the ante-room.

I came back to my room after a long evening of shopping at the Temple Square, and found a lovely tray of assorted items on my bed, along with the completed bed turn down service, the shades had been closed, and a few things in the room mildly rearranged for my evening convenience. It was perfect. The complementary slippers were comfortable, and the robes were nicely big and heavy.

I did get Room Service, which was nice. The presentation was beautiful and the man brought it right into my room and set it up on the portable table. The food quality was alright, just slightly below the standards now had in my head for this particular hotel. The Mango sorbet was alright, and Chicken Alfredo was very creamy and cheesy, but not over-bearing.

All of the staff were wonderful, courteous, asking how my evening was, how I was enjoying the conference, and helping me with my simple requests.

My only complaint would be that the sheets were a little stiff / hard, like maybe there was a lot of starch in the wash. The beds themselves were pretty soft and comfortable though. Everything else here has been superb and thank you to all the staff who made our stay so wonderful!

The Grand America was magnificent - not a detail not thought of, the food marvelous, the service and staff, and everything else absolutely 5-stars. My favorite was standing on our private balcony at night after it cooled down. Second favorite was meals in the restaurant, each course building on the next, everything fresh and local.

Room Tip: Request a room with a private balcony overlooking the city - magnificent views

This is an absolutely beautiful hotel. We had a suite that swallowed us in luxury. The bed was very comfortable and the sitting room nice as well. We had 2 separate sinks to get ready at and there was more than enough room in the shower/tub area to stay out of each other's way. The evening turn down service was a nice touch. We were there on business and enjoyed dinner in the smaller restaurant. The food was predetermined, but was very good.I had the trout and was very happy.
The hotel lobby has a very nice atmosphere and the lounge area is a great place to relax in the morning and evening. We enjoyed coffee and pastries in the morning there. They have music in the evening that is not too loud.
The location sits on the corner of one of the light rail stops. We took the rail from the airport for $2.50 each. Taking the rail throughout downtown is free when you stay within a certain square radius, which the hotel is in. It was very convenient to hop on and off toward Temple Square.
We loved our weekend here! The staff was very nice too!
