Fodor's Expert Review The Grand America Hotel

555 S. Main St., Salt Lake City, Utah, 84101, USA Fodor's Choice

Built to impress dignitaries and celebs attending the 2002 Winter Olympics, this 24-story luxury tower is by far Salt Lake City's most opulent hotel, a huge complex with similarly huge rooms (averaging 700 square feet), most of them with balconies and sweeping views. Inside the beveled-glass and brass doors, you step into a world of Italian marble floors and walls and pure old-world style—think English wool carpets, French furniture and tapestries, and colorful Murano-glass chandeliers.
