Grand America Hotel begins holiday season with annual window displays

A time-honored Salt Lake tradition, The Holiday Window Unveiling returns to the opulent Grand America Hotel. On Tuesday, November 22 at 4 p.m., management will pull back the curtains to reveal this year’s crafted displays. Featuring Christmas celebrations from across the globe, the window decoration was crafted this year by local artist Jonnie Hartman. The stroll will be open November 22 through December 31, with special hours on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day.

The biggest venture by the hotel, the life-sized gingerbread house, returns this year in all its glory. Designed by the Grand’s resident carpenters and pastry team, the gingerbread house includes 1,100 gumballs, 300 pounds of rice Krispy treats and 800 pounds of royal icing.


“We are proud of our team for creating such a magical place for Salt Lake City and the region to enjoy the holidays. Our team has been working since mid-summer to bring the holidays to life. Our pastry team created the gingerbread house design in August and started baking in September,” said Chris Erickson, Grand America Hotel Manager. “We enjoy being a memorable part of families’ annual Christmas traditions. Guests’ joy and excitement truly make it a magical season for us.”

The Grand Holiday Window Unveiling and Window Stroll are complimentary and open to the public. Special guest packages offered by the hotel are available through the holiday season for those wishing to enjoy the luxury and special shopping found at the Grand America Hotel.

Located at 555 South Main Street in downtown Salt Lake City, The Grand America Hotel is a renown destination for lavish accommodations, fine dining, optimal convention space and gorgeous views. For more information on the hotel and the window unveiling, click here.
