Salt Lake City Public LibraryCity Guide
The conference will be held in the Salt Lake City Public Library, a stunning, iconic structure, designed by internationally-acclaimed architect Moshe Safdie. With its massive, multi-purpose space, the SLCPL serves to bring people together to share ideas, network, hang out, or simply admire panoramic views of the city skyline.
The Salt Lake City Public Library is located directly in the city center - on University Blvd, at Library Station on the Red Line. It’s a 15 minute drive from the Salt Lake City Airport. An underground parking facility can be accessed from eastbound 400 South between 200 and 300 East. Parking in this city-operated facility is free for the first half-hour, then $1.50 per half-hour after that.
Salt Lake City has more than its fair share of inns, hotels, and B&B. If you’re looking for luxury, there’s even our historic 5-store hotel, The Grand America, but that’s prohibitively expensive for most, and you can’t really go wrong with any of the following.
The Hyatt Place in downtown Salt Lake City is roughly 5 minutes away from the public library by car and a short walk from the nearest Trax (our public rail station). Situated at the north end of the Gateway Mall, this hotel also puts you at walking distance from a number of restaurants as well as the Vivint Smart Home Arena, which could be handy if you’re considering catching an NBA game.
As of the writing of this article, room prices are going for around the $150 mark. There are less expensive hotels nearby, but Hyatt Place offers a good location and nice accommodations for a good mid-range price.
The older, 4-star sister hotel to The Grand America. The Little America is roughly a 10-minute walk from the library. That equates to roughly 2 minutes in a car (there are also electric scooters and bikes to rent all over the city).
The Little America offers an interesting choice in terms of luxury and price. You can stay in one of the motel rooms for anywhere from $100 - $150 per night, or you can splurge and book a room in the tower for roughly $200+. At that point, you might also consider just going for The Grand America Hotel, but the rooms are nice, the service is great, and the onsite Lucky H Bar & Grille is both tasty and convenient.
