Stay Close to the Arena in These Downtown Salt Lake City Hotels

With over 35 hotels to choose from in the downtown area alone in Salt Lake City, there are many options if you're trying to stick close to the Energy Solutions Arena.  Located right in the heart of downtown, the Arena plays host to the NBA Utah Jazz team, the WNBA Starzz team and a wide variety of major headline touring concerts, rodeos, ice shows and family events.  Offering eveything from casual pubs to luxury suites with premium dining, it's easy to get comfortable and have fun while attending an event. 

Afterward, rest easy knowing you are just blocks away from excellent accommodations in the downtown area, some within close walking distance.  The closest would be the Radisson, located right across the street from the Arena.  Close by also are the Marriott Downown at City Creek or the Hilton Salt Lake City Center.  For extra flare, try the Hotel Monaco, housed in a historic building, but the decor is completely sexy modern (think animal print bathrobes).  The Peery Hotel, dating back to 1910 or the Inn on the Hill, built in 1906 will provide old world elegance and relaxation.  For ultimate luxury, dine amongst the beautiful gardens at the Grand America and pamper yourself in their spa.

Convenient to all these downtown hotels are the top tourist attractions - Temple Square, the State Capitol (both providing free tours) and the huge indoor/outdoor malls, The Gateway and the more recent City Creek Mall.
