How to Get There
The Little America was a very pleasant surprise. We booked a room based on a friend’s recommendation and found the property to be a very wonderful property in a convenient location. The Coffee Shop in the hotel was a great place for breakfast and lounge was good for a late evening drink.
I was in SLC for a conference, and chose the Little America Hotel, as they were affiliated with the conference, and offered discounts. I had a tower king room, and enjoyed a great view facing south and over the city.
The hotel has a nice classic interior, and even a lobby with a live pianist in the evenings. Being more drawn to modern-styled hotels in general, I still enjoyed the interior, despite it's nondescript exterior. It seriously doesn't look like anything special, and it is even worse with the Grand America Hotel right next door, which really catches your eye.
I spent some time in the fitness room, and they had an ok selection of equipment, although I would have liked to see a fitness flooring, and not just general carpeting.
The lobby staff offered disinterested but passable service, but did a good job when there was some miscommunication with dry cleaning. The staff in the coffee shop and restaurant were much better, and offered really attentive service. They could not however cover for the one thing that ruined the experience; the food.
I stayed for over a week, and the first night, I had dinner in the diner/cafeteria. I got served overcooked chicken, with burnt and dried out vegetables. I resorted to eating the potato mash and calling it a night. I decided to have all meals for the rest of the week outside the hotel.
I was running low on time one of the nights, so I ended up trying the other restaurant in the hotel, and again got a "Utah trout" so overcooked I was contemplating eating it or not, atleast they served eatable vegetables.
For the prices this hotel charges, you would imagine they could hire a better chef than this, even at discounted rates. If you're going to stay here I'd even suggest going across the street to the Grand America, which is even pricier, but atleast justifies it with serving top quality dinner.
All in all, this should be a good hotel, but as of now the price doesn't reflect the quality of the services, atleast not if you go for the larger rooms. Maybe a stay in the motel part is better value.
I stayed here earlier in the month. Pretty front lobby area but the rooms looked straight out of the 80’s and definitely needs to be redone. Great ballrooms for meetings. Also, a weird rule about not being able to get alcohol unless you purchase food in the lobby bar area. Not a bad stay.
We stayed in the tower section of the hotel for six nights while attending a convention. The room was spacious (600 sq ft) which was nice since we were there for so long. The bathroom area was spacious and the facilities were modern and in great shape. The bed was comfortable as was the easy chair and sofa. The desk was large enough that we could set up two computers back to back. The wi-fi was very reliable.
The cleaning staff did a great job, and every employee we encountered was friendly and helpful.
The Coffee Shop provided good food at very reasonable prices, the bar had a very good selection of local brews, and the lobby bar was great for a quick bite to eat for breakfast.
We have stayed in a lot of 'convention hotels' over the years, and the Little America would rank in the top 3.
Nice clean and friendly staff.... The door man got to know me by name and was very helpful and giving me directions to some local restaurants. - not the name brand places. If I have to go back to Salt Lake City for anything. I’m sure I’ll be staying there!
