Salt Lake City is nestled between two spectacular ranges of the Rocky Mountains.
It was the home of the 2002 Olympic winter games which highlighted the city's
culture, arts and attractions including world class dining, numerous bars and
nightclubs, theatres, dance companies, music festivals and the numerous ski
resorts that are in close proximity of the city. Salt Lake City International
airport is a Delta airlines hub with more than 900 flights daily and only 10
minutes from downtown. The Grand America Hotel is located in the heart of the
city within the public transit "free fare zone"
