The Zion National Park Area
Hotels in The Zion National Park Area
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.
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.
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).
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.
The hotel is a lot like Cedar City itself: small, unassuming, and eager to please.
The 43-room hotel, with its rough-hewn log furniture and old-school drive-up ambience, channels national park lodges of yesteryear.
