As we drove from Yellowstone to Zion from rustic cabin to rustic lodge we needed a five star hotel and found what we were looking for. The reservation was done by my son by cell phone as soon as we got close enough to Salt Lake. I questioned the name of the hotel, picturing a fort wilderness at Disney in my mind. I was wrong, built for the Olympic games it is a stunning large building in the downtown area looking a lot like a few places in Paris just bigger. As soon as we pulled up our doors were opened and we were greeted with professional manner that we missed at our do it yourself lodges that we had been staying at. We touched nothing but our personal stuff and were escorted to the front desk where the kids were greeted with cookies and the wife and I got fresh lemon cooled watered. When the doors opened to the lobby a fresh wave of fresh flowers hits you not smelly tourist. The marble is from ceiling to floor and the decor is fabulously. Staff had us in a beautiful room overlooking the city and everything was first class even the size of the room. Of course a shower rating was an 7 nice roomy shower but pressure was a little weak darn water savers in the shower head. But again the marble bath and the plush towels and robes made up for weak pressure..The halls were deck out in nice furniture and the gardens were also beautiful and very nice to walk through. Someone spent some time on detail.
Food was first class and service five star also very professional waiter at our dinner service well educated in the industry. Such as everyone on staff at the hotel.
The pool area was also very well staffed and catered to your needs before needing them.
Even though we wanted to stay a couple more nights we had only one to enjoy this lovely hotel that I recommend as a stop over or any stay you have in Salt Lake City. When we went to leave car was waiting for us and stocked with water for the drive to Zion. The bellman and valet even placed a few of the fresh flowers for my wife in car best it had smelled in week and half. This kind of service does costs a little more than the regular hotels but well worth it when your on vacation. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Grand American and will enjoy returning for our trip to Bryce Canyon which we bypassed this go round.
In conclusion spoil yourself and stay at the Grand. Nome
