Site Visit | The Grand America Hotel

By Connect Staff, June 6, 2014

Salt Lake City’s The Grand America Hotel was built in 2001 for the 2002 Winter Olympic Games, and it has been an active spot for events ever since. In January 2014, it earned a AAA Five Diamond distinction, the only Five Diamond property in the city to do so.

The hotel has 75,000 square feet of event space, which includes two ballrooms, a salon, a courtyard and 20 meeting rooms. The largest indoor space is the 22,813-sq.-ft. Grand Ballroom. It has 20-ft. ceilings, custom chandeliers and a high-quality sound system. It can be divided into four sections and can hold 3,000 attendees for receptions, 2,420 for banquets and 2,640 theater-style. The 12,768-sq.-ft. Imperial Ballroom can also be divided into four, and holds 1,500 for receptions and 1,200 for banquets. The Grand Salon measures 4,581 square feet and has its own private patio. The Center Courtyard hosts outdoor events in its 35,000 square feet of gardens. Twenty meeting rooms accommodate 10 to 200 attendees.

On-site, the full-service spa and gym have been renovated, and saunas and an indoor lap pool are also available. Four shops are on-site as well as four restaurants. The Garden Cafe hosts private events.

The hotel has 775 guest rooms and suites, and Wi-Fi is free. The property is within walking distance of TRAX Light Rail station, which provides access from Salt Lake City International Airport and runs throughout downtown.
