Additional Information The Hotel Utah was built in 1909 - 1911, with the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints as the primary stockholder. It was operated by the Hotel Utah Company for most of its history. In order to compete with newer hotels in the city, a renovation plan was adopted in January of 1974, to expand the building on the north, with a ballroom and convention center on the ground floor and new rooms above. The West Wing was extended northward in 1975 and the East Wing was expanded in 1976. Other areas of the hotel were also renovated and refurbished. This work was completed in the autumn of 1976. This effort gave the Hotel Utah the largest convention facilities of any hotel in the state, but failed to keep the hotel competitive, so that in 1987 it closed and was converted to LDS Church office space.
