With its nearby ski resorts, national parks and forest, and year-round schedule of festivals, Cedar City, Utah, is an eclectic hub with plenty to offer. Whether you’re here to hike in Zion National Park or get involved in the Utah Shakespeare Festival, we’ve picked the best hotels in Cedar City – all bookable on Culture Trip.
Abbey Inn is the perfect base for nature fiends, thanks to its handy location near the north rim of the Grand Canyon and the Zion and Bryce Canyon national parks. It is also ideal for bigger groups, with a full kitchen, separate living room and spacious suites, which all grant access to an indoor spa, pool and gym. There’s also a substantial breakfast buffet, so be sure to fuel up before your hike.
The Best Western Plus Cedar City lies right in the heart of the action – just half a block from the buzzing historic downtown district – and is one of the most highly rated hotels in Cedar City, complete with a separate RV park. Many of its light and airy rooms come with mesmerizing mountain views, while all guests can indulge in a complimentary hot breakfast with coffee on tap. Elsewhere, there’s a 24-hour fitness center at your disposal.
Traveling for business? Courtyard Cedar City Marriott promises consistently strong wifi and ample use of free workspace. You’ll be welcomed into a state-of-the-art lobby and shown to comfortable rooms with a mini bar and refrigerator – but don’t hit the hay without a cocktail at the downstairs Bistro first. Spend your downtime at local hotspots and tourist attractions, such as Southview Trailhead, where you can hike and cycle.
Location is everything on Stratford Court Hotel’s side: it’s the closest hotel to the Utah Shakespeare Festival, plus natural must-visits including Zion National Park, Bryce Canyon and Cedar Breaks are close by, too. The no-frills rooms are cozy, but the real draw is the picturesque seasonal courtyard – complete with outdoor hot tub and fire pit that makes for a perfect marshmallow-roasting social hub.
It’s first come, first served with just five guest rooms available at the intimate Anniversary House Bed and Breakfast in Cedar City. The B&B wows guests with antique beds, period wallpapers and vintage details in each room, which all come complete with a private bath. It’s loved for its friendly community vibe – on Saturdays locals and visitors gather on the grounds for Jazz on the Deck to enjoy music.
Tasteful renovations have put this reliable Cedar City motel on the map, with its clean and affordable rooms serving as a stellar spot to rest your head. Situated close to the Shakespeare Festival, Bryce Canyon, Brian Head and Zion National Park, location is second to none, and you can savor a complimentary hot breakfast before exploring the numerous activities the city has to offer.
The perfect shelter for a long weekend in Utah, Comfort Inn and Suites is just minutes away from Southern Utah University and close to Cedar Ridge Golf Course – if you fancy fitting in a few rounds while in town. There’s an indoor pool and hot tub on site, plus certain rooms are pet-friendly, meaning your four-legged friend never has to leave your side. Guests also rave about the eclectic buffet breakfast complete with a choice of hot waffle flavors.
In Utah for the national parks? This Cedar City hotel is ideally located just off Interstate 15, with easy access to Zion National Park, Bryce Canyon and Brian Head ski resort. Jump on a mountain bike and explore the nearby area, or, if you prefer to travel by foot, the picturesque hiking trails will be sure to work up a sweat. Back at the hotel there’s an indoor pool and fitness center, plus complimentary coffee and hearty breakfasts.
