5 Salt Lake City Hotels for a Perfect Winter Holiday
Home of the only recreational ski jumping complex in the United States, Salt Lake City unsurprisingly delivers a wide array of boutique hotels perfect for a winter retreat. What more could you expect from a former Olympics town? Snow enthusiasts make their way to Salt Lake for its cross-country skiing, Clark Planetarium’s laser shows, the serenity of Temple Square — and more skiing! Here, then, are five cozy Salt Lake City hotels you should keep in mind for your next winter escapade.
Anniversary Inn–5th South
Staying in this boutique hotel can make Salt Lake City a winter wonderland to remember. Perfect for lovers, the Anniversary Inn is a mashup of winter fun . . . and anything else you want. Each room is decorated in its own theme, whether the Rio Grande room, the Mysteries of Egypt room, or the Phantom of the Opera room. Better still, each room, regardless of its theme, comes equipped with a bottle of wine each night — and the best cheesecake in town.
The Grand America Hotel
Those seeking a touch of luxury in their Salt Lake winter wonderland will love the Grand America Hotel. In the heart of Salt Lake City, the Grand America boasts impressive rooms that rival the exclusive accommodations of New York City and Chicago. Each room’s bathroom is adorned with Italian marble from stem to stern, but the five-star surprises don’t stop there: Visitors come for the beauty, but they stay for Garden Café’s breakfast and lunch buffets.

Crystal Inn Hotel & Suites–Salt Lake City
Many travelers value affordability, and the Crystal Inn Hotel & Suites, just outside downtown Salt Lake City, offers guests free breakfast buffets, Jacuzzi suites, and prices that are hard to beat — around $100 per night. Within walking distance of dinner, shopping, and Salt Lake City’s major attractions, the Crystal Inn offers compelling bargains when compared to its higher-priced counterparts.
Your home away from home in Salt Lake City is waiting for you, complete with Tempur-Pedic beds!

Better still, Metropolitan Inn welcomes pets; bring your furry babies along!
The Hotel Monaco is everything travelers have come to know and appreciate in a Kimpton hotel — and everything they could want in a downtown property.
