1. Broadway Hotel Marker
Inscription. The Broadway Hotel is one of the dozen hotels built in downtown Salt Lake City shortly after the completion of the city's two major rail depots. The building is most notable today for the portico on its southeast corner. This portico marks the entrance of the building and offers shelter to patrons standing on the sidewalk outside. Few such porticos now survive in Salt Lake City.

If you continue west on 300 South, look for the small one-story apartments in Wayne and Delmar Courts tucked behind the LaFrance Apartments on the north side of the street. Built circa 1905, they were amoung Salt Lake City's first apartments.
