Unique Downtown Salt Lake City Hotels

Salt Lake City is catching many people’s eyes as a top destination in the American West. It is within close distance of natural wonder and includes the modern conveniences of a city of its size. With so many people clamoring to stay in Salt Lake City, tons of hotels are available but you should choose wisely. These four hotels mix convenience with distinction compared to the many cookie-cutter hotels. Here are the best and unique downtown Salt Lake City hotels for all types of travelers.

Hyatt Place Salt Lake City/Downtown/The Gateway

Hyatt Place Salt Lake City/Downtown/The Gateway is a great choice to start because it’s right next to North Temple Station and Vivint Smart Home Arena. It’s within walking distance of Temple Square but the real draw is Hyatt Place’s 128 family rooms that start at just over $100. Guests rave about their spacious and homey quarters along with the hotel’s amenities. These include a pool and fitness center, as well as free breakfast from the restaurant on site.

The Grand America Hotel

Book at least a night at the Grand America Hotel and you’ll be within reach of both the Leonardo Museum and the Salt Lake City Public Library. Amenities include a beautiful pool and spa, and many guests love Grand America Hotel’s on-site food options in the Afternoon Tea and Garden Café. Beyond the hotel’s high-end interior, business travelers will enjoy the available meeting rooms during their stay. Choose any of the 775 rooms offering garden or scenic mountain views that start at $232.

Anniversary Inn – 5th South

Visitors searching for a romantic hotel in SLC love Anniversary Inn – 5th South for its unique rooms and much more. This hotel is close to the University of Utah and not far from 900 East Station. Guests can also enjoy the nearby Gilgal Gardens and the Utah Museum of Fine Arts. Room service is available for guests who’d like to stay in and eat. Of their 36 rooms starting at $160, guests can choose themes including “French Connection” and “Swiss Family Robinson.”

Salt Lake Plaza Hotel at Temple Square

Salt Lake Plaza Hotel is definitely the closest place to stay near Temple Square and the Convention Center. Guests choosing to go out for the day have all the downtown attractions at their fingertips, especially with Temple Square Station directly outside. The attached JB’s Restaurant is conveniently placed for quick, delicious eats and guests can also enjoy the on-site pool, hot tub, and fitness center. There are 150 rooms to choose from but with prices starting under $100, they’ll fill up quickly if you don’t book in advance!
