“Simply GRAND”
Reviewed 21 February 2014

enjoyed the Grand for Valentines weekend. This site rated it 2nd out of 75 places to stay in Salt Lake, certainly to each his own. But I'd like to know what is first. Classy elegant, clean, beauty every where. Helpful people I don't care that they are being paid to be nice to me, Well done. Worth the ticket

Built for the 2002 Olympics, the Grand America is a colossus with 775 rooms, so there's a challenge for it to feel intimate and personal. Instead, it tries hard to impress with (too much) grandeur, but any real elegance is undercut by just plain tacky moves like the pool fee, the self-parking fee, and the woefully understaffed Gibson lounge.

However, our suite was comfortable, the bathroom was great, and the concierge was very helpful.

We were here for meetings but would have preferred to stay at the Monaco with its excellent restaurant Bambara.

Downtown: make any excuse to get a haircut or shave at Ray's, 154 S. Main.

Dear Hapness,

Thank you for staying with us at the Grand America Hotel. We were delighted to hear you enjoyed your guest suite especially the bathroom. Thank you for recognizing our Concierge, we strongly believe our personnel are our greatest asset!
That being said, we are very sorry for the lack of personnel you experience in our Gibson Lounge. We do hope we are always prepared and ready to serve our guests. We are very sorry you found the fees for our newly remodeled Grand Spa and self-parking as inappropriate. We do hope if you return to Salt Lake City in the future you will visit us again. Please do not hesitate to contact me personally as I would be delighted to welcome you back to the Grand!

Best,

Annie Fitzgerald

This place makes you feel like a movie star or something. All of the food was ridiculously delicious. They have 3 or 4 very cool shops including a candy store and a separate pastry/sweets shop. :) Do not expect to get a deal as it is pricey. (But they did have an AAA discount for all my people.) :)

The room was huge and beautiful. OK mini-bar. Awesome shower and tub. Very nice TV's and probably the most comfortable beds in Utah. :)

Room Tip: The hotel is over 20 stories tall so get a room up high for very cool views.

Attention to detail sets this hotel apart. One example, the water. When you turn on the hot water, it is hot. No waiting, no letting it run, it is hot when you turn it on, and it is soft. I travel a lot, I do not know another hotel, even 5 star that has soft water to the rooms.
This is one small reason to use the Grand.

Amazing!! By far the best Salt Lake City has to offer. The rooms are beautiful the service impeccable and the pool is fabulous. Down town location close to everything. Market street Broiler and The Oyster bar bar not to far away for a great dinner outside the hotel.

This hotel is grand, indeed. Was recently here on business and my hotel room was, I think as large as my 1bdrm apartment in NYC. Service was impeccable, room service delicious. And the room and amenities par excellence.

I have been to many hotels in my life. This place rates right up their with the best. They make you feel like a king. Everything is beautiful, the spa and pool are great. The only thing I can say that is slightly negative is that the bed isn't great, it's not bad either, I just like my Tempur-pedic. Ask for the mountain view.
