Grand America Holiday Staycation

We've been wanting to take a family vacation for a while now, but we just haven't been able to get enough time off from work at the same time.  So, when we had the opportunity to drive up to Salt Lake City for a little "holiday staycation" at The Grand America Hotel, we knew we had to take it!  The Grand America is the only AAA Five Diamond hotel in Salt Lake City...and I must say, it absolutely did not disappoint!

One of my favorite things about our stay was the great city views.  I've always been a big city girl and I love being able to look out the window at all the buildings.  The kids were also pretty obsessed with the balcony!

This is easily the nicest hotel I've ever stayed in.  With it being such a fancy place, I was surprised at how family-friendly it was.  All of the employees went out of their way to make sure the kids enjoyed their stay just as much as we did! They even got hooked up with the cutest little reindeer stuffed animals from the hotel toy store, JouJou

In the morning, we had a reservation at the Garden Cafe for breakfast.  I'm sad that I didn't get more pictures, because I honestly think it was the best breakfast I've ever had!  They had the most delicious fresh fruit (even blackberries and raspberries, which are my favorite!) and the made-to-order omelets were perfection.  Emery and I are already planning a trip back just for the breakfast!

We had so much fun on our visit and can't wait to go back!  If you are ever looking for a super nice place to stay in Utah, the Grand America Hotel truly can't be beat!

Cheesy self-timer photos are the best...am I right?
