Our Hotel RL in downtown Salt Lake City is situated near a number of iconic LDS landmarks, and is the closest among hotels near Temple Square. When visiting Utah it's worth checking out the landmarks that represent the beginning of this incredibly city.

Salt Lake City was historically considered a holy city based on its beginnings. The story of Brigham Young and his members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints settling into Utah, specifically Salt Lake City, dates back to 1847. As Young and his pioneers headed west to find a place to settle, they climbed to the top of a summit (now known as Ensign Peak) and admired the Salt Lake Valley, where they decided to build their faith and new home. Although less than half the population of Salt Lake City are members of the LDS Church, the movement has amassed nationwide recognition and has made Salt Lake City a groundbreaking site.

SLC is currently home to the headquarters of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS Church), Temple Square and other Utah milestones. Whether you’re fascinated by history, religion, or recently listened to the Book of Mormon Broadway soundtrack, there is something for everyone when visiting these iconic Salt Lake City landmarks.
