Holiday spirit in the stately Hotel Utah.

The Westin Hotel Utah, at South Temple and State streets, is Salt Lake City's finest old hotel, built in 1911 in the English Renaissance style. With its classic ornate lobby, chandeliers, stained-glass ceiling, and wall coverings of red and gold, it always appears in a holiday mood; the decorations just get a little thicker and more seasonal this month. As this grand public space glows with holiday spirit, you can listen to free programs of Christmas music at lunchtime and evenings; a second-floor balcony provides a good view of the lobby below.

Weekdays from December 9 through December 24, you can listen to choral groups, bell ringers, and other musicians from 11:30 to 12:30. Every evening (weekends included), strolling singers in Victorian costume perform from 5 to 10. If you're planning a holiday visit to the hotel, remember afternoon tea service each weekday from 3 to 6 P.M. (cost $2.50) for a soothing respite from the rigors of shopping. And the restaurant upstairs offers a special holiday menu for Christmas Eve and Day (reserve well ahead).
