In fact, is is one of Delta's major hubs, and operates approximately 219 flights just with that airline each day. And though this airport stands just five minutes west of Downtown Salt Lake City – literally – many people have a specific need for sleeping in its immediate vicinity.

The many hotels near Salt Lake International Airport all cater to the business traveler, offering curbside pickup, 24-hour shuttle service, and wireless internet. Guests may enjoy a workout session in the fitness center and a soak in the hot tub after (or before) a long day of flying to loosen up the back.

These hotels all belong to nationally-owned chains, meaning that seasoned travelers know exactly what to expect from each establishment without any guesswork.
