The Best Places To Stay Near Zion National Park
Feb 17, 2023 By Juliana Daniel

Zion National Park is the third most-visited national park in the United States. Therefore nearby hotels might get booked up quickly. Even if you don't want to rough it by camping, you should visit this park for its breathtaking red rock scenery, towering canyon walls, and winding Virgin River.

We have compiled a list of the top hotels, glamping spots, and vacation homes in Zion National Park to ensure your post-hike relaxation is perfect. Our guide to the top national parks in Utah and our dedication to five of the state's most beautiful, least-visited parks should be required reading for anyone interested in Utah's outdoors.

The Zion Cabin

It took the mother and son two years, but their hard work paid off with a beautifully restored Zion Cabin. This hilltop retreat is a sophisticated update on the classic "cabin in the woods" with its striking original artwork, comfortable reading nooks, fully equipped eat-in kitchen, and expansive wraparound terrace. There are two king beds, two queen beds, and a separate office for computer time when you and your group aren't exploring the less-visited eastern side of Zion, which is only a 10-minute drive away.

Mother Eve Tiny House

Mother Eve Tiny House is a hidden oasis in the desert that manages to pack all the top features of a modern hotel room into a place that barely measures 100 square feet. Relax on the moss green sofa while brewing a pot of Earl Grey in the kitchen's kettle, take in some rays in the hot tub, or read a book in the robin's egg blue bedroom or bathroom. In any case, you may relax in the lofted queen bed after a day in the park.

Spirit, a Transformative Wilderness Retreat

Spirit Resort & Spa is located on 1,110 acres in the Clear Creek Mountains of Utah, about a mile from the entrance to Zion National Park. It offers visitors a luxurious escape into nature. The ingenious, leaf-shaped roofs of the hotel's "Leaf Suites" generate electricity independently from the grid using solar panels and photovoltaic fabric.

Each bungalow features a separate wellness studio for spa treatments or meditation, an outdoor fire pit, and breathtaking porch views of major Zion sights like Checkerboard Mesa and West Temple, adding to the property's already considerable charm.

Lazalu, Zion Retreat

Most tourists to Zion National Park don't venture far from the park's main canyon, a 15-mile-long gorge, which is the most popular destination. This is something that Lazalu, a hidden adobe-style getaway in the park's often-forgotten Kolob Terrace zone, hopes to remedy. This whole property provides a view of the beautiful rust-colored sandstone that characterizes Cave Valley. Lazalu is the epitome of off-the-grid luxury with its antique furniture, wood-burning stoves, deep soaking tubs, and unique architectural features.

Open Sky

The ceiling windows of Open Sky are perfect if you like stargazing and want to learn more about the night sky without getting out of bed. The Star Seeker is our favorite of their three glamping tents because of the enormous clawfoot copper bathtub, private telescope observation platform, swing lounger, and private outside rain shower it offers.

LaFave Luxury Rentals

Luxury villas, private houses, and studio apartments can all be found at LaFave in Springdale, Utah. Each unit features sleek, modern architecture and furnishings, with the occasional use of red brick to reflect the surrounding landscape. All the rooms have modern conveniences like stainless steel appliances and a coffee pod maker, plush white linens, original works of art from local artists, and breathtaking views of Zion Canyon. A public swimming pool will also debut this year.

Zion Wildflower Resort

At the Zion Wildflower Resort, you may sleep in a roomy, single-pole canvas tent while inhaling the aroma of wild sage. The glamping sites are all situated on wooden decks that have been carefully built, and each one offers breathtaking views of the area's rust-colored tablelands. Each tent has a private terrace with rocking seats, warm blankets, fairy lights, and access to free Wi-Fi and charging outlets. Guests may find a community fire pit, free bicycle rentals, and a luxurious bathhouse down a short trail.

Cliffrose Springdale

Hilton's Curio Collection is an attempt to diversify the hotel chain by providing a more boutique feel, complete with original artwork and regional touches. The Cliffrose, located about half a mile from Zion's main tourist center, has basic, modern furniture alongside more opulent touches like private decks with views into the park, huge soaking tubs, and multicolored rugs. Guests may enjoy the hotel's on-site restaurant, pool, and spa facilities anytime.
