Hotel Utah

1909-1911, Parkinson & Bergstrom

The Hotel Utah was the "Grande Dame" of hotels in the Intermountain West. For most
of the 20th century. the hotel hosted Utah's most distinguished visitors and was a focal point of local social activity. As one historian wrote, "Everything that was anything was held there." The building is a lavish example of Second Renaissance Revival style architecture — with a Utah touch. Look for the huge brick and plaster beehive cupola atop the hotel. The beehive is Utah's state symbol. In 1987, the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints decided to close the Hotel Utah and renovate the building to house church offices and meeting spaces. Today the hotel is known as the Joseph Smith Memorial Building.
