Hotels in Southern Utah + The Parks

This understated hotel, like the rest of Springdale, is authentic without trying too hard: reclaimed old-growth Douglas fir floors and a tawny palette of neutrals provide a soothing retreat from the blazing red rock outside.

The giant Georgian-revival inn is only a block from the Shakespearean Festival. But book early; its 12 rooms sell out fast.

Encircled by dramatic, earth-colored rock formations, Aman Resorts’ second North American property is hidden away on 600 acres of Utah wilderness alongside eroded hoodoos and 5,000-year-old petroglyphs.

Make your reservations far in advance for this rustic 1920s-era lodge with 40 cabins and 74 rooms within walking distance of a rim overlook. Cabins have fireplaces and front porches among the pines.

At the foot of red rock cliffs, its riverfront cabins are right next to some of the Colorado’s best white-water rapids.

The hotel is a lot like Cedar City itself: small, unassuming, and eager to please.

Secluded deep in southwestern Utah’s Grand Circle area, Red Mountain Resort’s 82 southwestern-style rooms and 24 suites take full advantage of the scenery: red-rock cliffs, majestic canyons, and black lava flows in a region that’s home to three parks (Snow Canyon, Bryce Canyon, and Zion).

A spa, a hilltop labyrinth, and the popular Spotted Dog Café make the property feel like its own little village. Several rooms have decks or patios; Zion National Park is a five-minute walk away.

Staying here lets you roll out of bed and onto a trail (it’s right across from the Emerald Pools hike). Ask for one of the historic 1920’s cabins with a fireplace and front porch.
