Hotels & Motels in Salt Lake City

• A WorldWeb.com Travel Guide for Salt Lake City, Utah.
The capital of Utah, Salt Lake City—known locally as Salt Lake or SLC—is surrounded by the towering mountains of the Wasatch and Oquirrh ranges and was founded by Brigham Young and members of the Mormon faith in 1847. The vibrant city was host of the 2002 Winter Olympics, capitalizing greatly on its world-class downhill skiing facilities and impressive outdoor recreational opportunities.  Known as the “Crossroads of the West” for its geographical orientation in western United States, the city is home to the University of Utah, an eclectic arts and cultural scene and major and minor league sporting teams, including the Utah Jazz of the NBA. Whether visiting for business or leisure, visitors to Salt Lake City will delight at the hotels and motels available, catering to short-term and extended stays for all budgets and traveling needs. Read on for a comprehensive overview of the city’s hotel and motel accommodation choices.


The oldest district of the city, downtown is conveniently laid out on a grid-style pattern, encompassing the areas of North Temple Street to 900 Street South and east to west from 500 West Street to 600 Street East. On its northern edge lie Temple Square and Salt Lake Temple, built in 1893 and the headquarters of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. Home to the popular open-air Gateway retail district, bustling Main Street, the business district, the Salt Palace Convention Center and the EnergySolutions Arena, downtown is central to all that Salt Lake has to offer. Here, visitors have a range of hotel and motel options, including amenity-filled upscale chain properties, mid-range options and cozy, functional choices for families and business travelers alike. In addition to offering convenient access to many area attractions and services, a downtown hotel or motel can provide a wide array of amenities to make any stay complete, including indoor pool complexes, on-site dining, meeting facilities, complimentary breakfast, Wi-Fi and shuttle services.


Situated just east of the downtown near the junction of Interstate 80 and Interstate 215—the main belt route for the city—the Salt Lake City International Airport and its surrounding district are home to two clusters of hotel and motel properties. The first cluster, nestled at the western end of North Temple Street at the Belt Route, features a great mix of low-to-mid-scale chain properties as well as a few budget-friendly independent options. On the western perimeter of the city along I-80 at North Wright Brothers Drive and North 5600 Street West sits another small cluster of internationally-recognized hotel selections, all offering ease of access to the freeway, the airport, family dining and downtown.


Extending along South State Street out of the downtown core, the district of South Salt Lake features a good collection of independent and chain-style properties for the budget-minded. The busy commercial corridor features mainly motel-style choices and is handy to fast-food eateries, discount shopping centers and travel conveniences and Interstates 15 and 80.
