Salt Lake City in Salt Lake County, Utah — The American Mountains (Southwest)
Park (Rio Grande) Hotel
With shops and cafe on the first level and residential rooms on the second level, the Park Hotel was modest in size and design, yet it was one of the first of a soon-popular building type. Over the next few years, several other hotels were constructed to the east along 300 South, producing something of a "hotel row." Following World War II the name was changed to the Rio Grande Hotel. It continues its historic function as a single room occupancy hotel.
