Hotel Utah - Salt Lake City, Utah



Located in the heart of beautiful historic Salt Lake City, this world-famous hostelry offers the visitor an unexcelled view of Temple Square and other points of interest. Erected in 1891 of white terra-cotta brick, it is one of the outstanding objects on the Salt Lake City skyline.



In the roof garden high atop Hotel Utah, overlooking historic Temple Square and the downtown area, dining and dancing may be enjoyed in luxuriously appointed surroundings.

Mailed from Salt Lake City, Utah to Mrs. Paul Sharick at the Hotel Iowa in Keokuk, Iowa on June 26, 1949:

I'm listening to the music from the Roof Garden & wishing I were there. They stop dancing in this state at midnight.

Sat. Night.



This magnificent dining and entertainment room, high atop the hotel, overlooks historic Mormon Temple Square, offering a breathtaking view of the entire valley including towering mountains to the East and the Great Salt Lake to the West. The Sky Room is two rooms in one, permitting the guest to choose elegance of a classic French pavilion or the quiet dignity of an English Club room for dining pleasure.



The main lobby of this world famous hotel is one of the most elegant found anywhere. Italian marble floors, stately pillars and an exquisite crystal chandelier add to the luxury of the surroundings.
