From the moment you arrive in the capital of Utah, you’ll be head-over-heels for its scenery, with rugged mountains rising out of that flat, white landscape. And, by the time you’ve checked into one of these romantic boltholes, you’ll want to elope for good to this stunning city. With ski resorts a short drive away and amazing restaurants within walking distance from your hotel, it’s not hard to get wrapped up in romance with the one you love. Spend a night between the sheets at these romantic hotels in Salt Lake City and see for yourself. What’s more, they’re all bookable with Culture Trip.

1. The Grand America Hotel, for kid-free canoodling

The Grand America Hotel gives parents a luxurious night away even with the little ones in tow. Children’s amenities like outlet covers, cribs, and bottle warmers can be delivered to your suite, allowing you to enjoy the mountain views from your presidential suite without stressing over the little things. Perhaps most importantly, babysitting services can also be arranged for the tots, giving you and your partner the time to spend an afternoon on the slopes or an evening on the town kid-free.

2. Kimpton Hotel Monaco Salt Lake City

Bring your puppy love and your actual puppy to the pet-friendly suites of Kimpton Hotel Monaco. This stylish hotel will pamper you, your significant other, and your poodle. Facials, massages, and body treatments are brought right to your room. As for your furry third wheel, they’ll love trotting into a room with their own bed, feeding mat, and leash already waiting for them. They’ll be so busy on the floor that you two will have the soaking tub and luxurious Italian linens without a dog hair in sight.

3. The Peery Hotel, an Ascend Hotel Collection Member, for seductive steaks

No matter if you choose the junior king suite or its larger peer, we have a feeling you won’t be spending much time in the room. Especially not after you get a whiff of the aromas coming out of the Peery Hotel’s onsite restaurants. Set one evening aside for perfectly cooked USDA steaks at Christopher’s Prime Tavern & Grill, and another for you, your love, and a boatload of seafood at Sonoma Grill & Wine Bar.

5. Little America Hotel, for sloping off together

There’s no better way to start your romantic ski trip than with a night at Little America Hotel. Check into a garden room and get settled in a deluxe room after a long flight. The English wool carpet and comfortable, handcrafted furniture will be a welcome change from the cramped coach seats. A bowl of warm tomato soup, a roast turkey dinner, and other comfort foods can be sent up to your suite in minutes, letting you relax before heading to the mountains in the morning.

6. The Kimball at Temple Square, for smushy strolls

Surrounded by Temple Square, City Creek Park, and the McCune Mansion, a romantic walk around Salt Lake City awaits you and your love at The Kimball. Take the opportunity to play house in the superior queen studio, cherry-picking the decor and additions you’d make if it was your first home together. Step outside and walk hand-in-hand through the park paths on your way to a sushi dinner at Blue Marlin then snuggle a little closer on the walk back to The Kimball.

7. Salt Lake Plaza Hotel at Temple Square, for moving views

Situated within walking distance of nearly everything in the city, a cozy queen suite should be plenty during your stay at Salt Lake Plaza Hotel. Mountain views will await your return, best enjoyed with a hot cup of in-room tea or coffee. The Temple Square light rail station sits only steps away, as is the Family History Library if you want to delve into genealogy to ensure that you two aren’t twelfth cousins twice-removed.

8. The Cliff Lodge and Spa, for spa-crossed lovers

Get cozy at The Cliff Lodge and Spa and as the snow falls outside you can turn up the heat – starting with a couples massage in the spa. You could then find a little quiet time in the sauna together, or get your hearts racing with a dip in the heated rooftop pool and hot tub. Race back to your mountain view suite, cuddle up in bed and get room service on speed dial.
