So Much More than Mountains

Salt Lake City attracts event-goers with its eclectic energy and its central connection to surrounding natural beauty. Downtown boasts a vibrant local culture, including a mix of microbreweries, coffee roasteries, and niche boutiques. Not to mention its easy drives: just eight minutes from the airport and only thirty minutes to mountain resorts.

Faces of The Grand: Javier Robles

All tables, linens (ivory or black), chairs, stages, dance floors, and podiums are included with the event space.  Additional costs are determined based on food and beverage orders, audio-visual equipment rentals, Wi-Fi, and parking.

Upon return of the signed contract, we will require a 25% deposit.  The remaining balance is due 5 business days prior to arrival.

Set up times can be arranged with your catering manager. Prices will depend on room availability and the length of time requested.

We do not provide any decorations or florals, but we are happy to provide you with information on some of our preferred vendors.

There are additional fees for event parking. You can either cover the cost of parking for attendees or have your guests pay on their own at the parking gates. Your catering manager will go over options and pricing.

All food and beverage items (including alcoholic beverages) must be provided by the hotel. We do not allow any outside food or beverages on property.

For plated meals, we ask that you select one salad, one entrée, and one dessert for the entire group. We will gladly accommodate dietary restrictions as long as we are notified one week prior to the scheduled event date.

Once a contract has been signed and the deposit received, we can accommodate tastings for events that have over 200 guests. We charge for all tastings based on the items selected. Please ask your catering manager for the Tasting Guidelines.

If your event only requires a contract for event space and not guestrooms, we have a three-month booking window for weekday events (Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday daytime) and a six-month booking window for weekend events (Friday evening, Saturday, and Sunday).

The Grand America is proud to call one of the most beautiful cities in the West home. From the glorious views of the Wasatch Mountains seen from our tower guest rooms to the greenery that decorates our courtyard gardens, we know that showcasing the very best of Mother Earth is part of what makes our hotel shine.
