Historic Salt Lake City Hotel

The Peery Hotel

A Salt Lake Tradition

The late 19th and early 20th centuries brought eager speculators to Utah’s mining areas, but it was not until 1910 that a Salt Lake City hotel of incomparable quality was constructed to accommodate the individuals who had discovered wealth in the rich veins of Utah’s hills. Brothers David and Joseph Peery commissioned prominent European architect Charles Onderdonk to build a grand Salt Lake City hotel to accommodate business people and their families, and the resulting Peery Hotel was a three-story showcase of Prairie-style architecture combined with motifs of classical revival influence. It has been in continuous operation since 1910, and in 1999 the Peery was remodeled as a luxury boutique Salt Lake City hotel that simultaneously recalls its place in the history of Salt Lake City while catering to the discerning modern traveler.
