With hotels like these so close to the trailheads, you’ll be deep into Zion National Park, Utah, practically as soon as you’ve rolled out of bed. Book your stay now with Culture Trip.
Zion National Park holds a special place in the hearts of hikers. Its steep red cliffs and canyons carved through southwest Utah lead to lush forests along the Virgin River. Sunshine streams across the park nearly every day of the year, offering you more than enough daylight to explore the area to your heart’s desire.

Make your wild-west dreams of living on a ranch a vibrant reality at the picturesque Zion Mountain Ranch. While only a 30-minute drive from the Zion National Park Visitor Center, you’ll be plenty busy having the time of your life on this ranch. From guided horseback rides and Jeep tours to hiking and canyoneering from peak to base, you’ll hardly spend time in your private cabin. When you do, though, we have a feeling it’ll either be on the patio watching the clouds roll by or relaxing in the Jacuzzi.

If you’re still a little fuzzy on the differences between “camping” and “glamping”, let Under Canvas Zion clear a few things up for you. The luxury tents here include things such as wood-burning stoves, private decks and full-working bathrooms. Soft linens and beds sit under the canvas, providing you with a good night’s rest under the stars. Don’t worry, the “camping” part is still in full swing, with campfires, s’mores and shooting stars filling your evenings.
Cable Mountain Lodge

Panoramic views of Zion National Park, a volcanic limestone soaking tub and a cozy fireplace to cuddle up beside await your family in the grand residences of Cable Mountain Lodge. You’ll also have access to an exclusive picnic area on the banks of the Virgin River, an unforgettable spot for a family barbeque. Cable Mountain Lodge is just across the street from the Zion National Park entrance, helping your clan stay on target no matter how off-schedule you (aka your kids) are running.

Why settle for near the park when you can stay in it? The Zion National Park Lodge is the sole hotel within the park’s territory, resting peacefully within 2 miles (3.2km) of Angels Landing and only a few minutes from the Emerald Pools Trail. You will find no swimming pool or game room here, just unlimited access to the great outdoors. But don’t worry, creature comforts like a TV, air conditioning and a full bathroom come with every suite and cabin.
Majestic View Lodge at Zion National Park

See for yourself if Majestic View Lodge earns its name. Meticulously scrutinize where the canyon ridges meet the sky from your private balcony, then assess the same scene from the pool. Compare notes with your mates at the pub adjacent to the lobby, and, after a few pints, head into the hot tub to determine if said majestic views are better under the sunlight or starlight. We’d recommend photographing it for the family back home, but you’ll know as well as us that it won’t do it justice.

You’ve roughed it long enough; one peaceful night’s stay at Cliffrose isn’t going to ruin your trail cred. Save a few footsteps, and let the hotel’s free shuttle ride you up to the Zion National Park Visitor Center. Give your feet a little pampering with a well-deserved massage and pedicure at the spa. Requesting room service from Anthera in the lobby isn’t shameful either – who wouldn’t want to bite into a burger, with canyon views from their balcony?
SpringHill Suites by Marriott Springdale Zion National Park

Wake up before the sun only a mile (1.6km) away from the entrance to Zion National Park at SpringHill Suites by Marriott. If you’re up early enough, you’ll be treated to the glowing night sky as you walk along the Virgin River. No worries if you oversleep in your queen suite; brew up a cup of coffee, and fuel up for your hike with a free breakfast in the lobby. We won’t put you on a curfew, but we will insist that you’re home by nightfall to spend a few hours in the hot tub.

Treat yourself under the shadow of Snow Canyon State Park at Red Mountain Resort. The Sagestone Spa & Salon will restore your body and mind with custom blends of indigenous desert botanicals. You’ve walked enough during this vacation – allow the spa team to meet you in your mountain-view suite, where you’ll wait in a cozy robe for a private massage and Thai reflexology session. After, nod off in your soaking tub, letting your every muscle unwind.

WorldMark Estancia has room for your whole crew in its three- and four-bedroom suites. From the backdoor of the hotel, you and your hiking buddies will be able to reach the Zen and Old Bearclaw Poppy Trails that stretch into the Green Valley Gap Climbing Area. Those who stay behind won’t have to crash the pool, hot tub or fitness center at the WorldMark St George next door either – access to the amenities are included with your stay.
