Accommodations

Please note: The hotels listed below are meant as samples of the kind of accommodations we use. Specific hotel details will be communicated in your final trip documents.
Hyatt Place St. George
Location
St. George, Utah

In the heart of St. George and surrounded by southwest Utah’s dramatic red rock country, the town's premier hotel offers magnificent views of the St. George Valley and Red Cliffs National Conservation Area. Large, light-filled rooms are designed with a high desert palette in mind, featuring decor in a rich mix of earth tones with burnt orange accents. Furnishings include one king or two queen Hyatt Grand beds, sofa and ottoman in a separate lounge area, work desk with leather swivel chair, 43-inch flat screen TV, Wi-Fi, safe, mini fridge and coffee/tea maker. Bathrooms have a large walk-in shower. The hotel’s public spaces convey a modernist flair, with clean-lined furniture in smooth leather and warm wood tones. Outdoors, pull up a seat around the courtyard fire pit when evening temperatures cool. A fitness center, swimming pool and hot tub round out the relaxation options on site. The lobby bar offers drinks and casual dining from early-morning espresso to late-night cocktail nightcaps.
Bryce Canyon Lodge
Location
Bryce Canyon National Park, Utah

Completely renovated to its original 1920s atmosphere, Bryce Canyon Lodge offers the only accommodations inside the national park. The venerable lodge, which enjoys a place on the National Historic Register, offers unrivaled access to breathtaking views, hiking trails and soul-stirring wilderness. The lodge is just steps from the Bryce Amphitheater—the "fairy forest" of ancient rock formations that comprises the heart of the park. Opened in 1925, the lodge is one of our national parks' architectural treasures. It was designed by Gilbert Stanley Underwood, who defined the similar rustic style of beloved sites such as Old Faithful Lodge at Yellowstone, the Ahwahnee at Yosemite, and Jackson Lake Lodge in Grand Teton National Park. Bryce Canyon Lodge remains a completely original structure. It has been carefully maintained with an eye toward modern comforts while preserving the look and feel of one of the first western park lodges in the United States.

The lodge offers differing accommodation types which are assigned by group. Most of its 114 rooms are situated between the main lodge and the amphitheater rim in a fragrant stand of old-growth Ponderosa pine. Historic Old West-style cabins provide a rustic experience with the comforts of home. More contemporary hotel rooms are available in two-story lodges located on Sunrise or Sunset Point. Offering all the services of a national park hotel, you'll find a full-service restaurant, pizza cafe with espresso and baked goods served in the morning, a gift shop showcasing fine Native American jewelry and art, and a general store. As one of only three International Dark Skies Parks in the United States, Bryce Canyon is an unparalleled place to stargaze. The lodge is a strong partner with the National Park Service in this effort, and as a result, there is virtually no ambient light from traffic, signs or housing. Visitors are often astonished to see the Milky Way on prominent display overhead.  
SpringHill Suites Zion
Location
Zion National Park, Utah

Just a mile from the entrance to Zion National Park on the banks of the Virgin River, SpringHill Suites Springdale offers a stylish jumping-off point for exploring Utah’s canyonlands. Incorporating desert stone and heavy timbers, the hotel's design blends artfully with its desert canyon backdrop. Each room in this smoke-free hotel is decorated in rustic elegance with earthen tones and textures that contrast with crisp white linens. The spacious suites are filled with natural light. Each spa-style bathroom has a walk-in shower, separate tub and a deep porcelain sink.  Sink into the couch in your comfortable seating area. Enjoy the dramatic red-rock canyon views from a lounge chair on the hotel’s shaded terrace. Take a little desert sun on the patio, or stargaze under the dark night sky by a cozy fireplace. You can also enjoy the red-rock expanse from the vantage of the outdoor pool and hot tub. Breakfast is served in a dining area with towering wall of windows that reveals a breathtaking expanse of colorful cliffs.

Zion Lodge
Location
Zion National Park, Utah

As the only lodging located inside the national park, Zion Lodge offers coveted proximity and atmosphere for guests seeking the paramount experience of Zion. The lodge is shaded beneath mature trees on the valley floor and backdropped by the massive sandstone ramparts of the canyon walls. Originally designed by Gilbert Stanley Underwood in the 1920s and listed on the National Register of Historic Places, Zion Lodge offers 82 hotel rooms and 40 historic cabins. After a fire in 1966, the lodge was rebuilt in 100 days with the top priority being to restore guest services. While its original rustic design was sacrificed at that time, it was restored to its classic appearance in 1990. Public spaces, including the grand lobby and dining room, feature timber beams and stone columns, period-style log furniture, leather sofas, and Indian rugs and upholstery. Historic cabins have one queen or two double beds, full bath, gas log fireplace, microwave, mini fridge and private porch. Most hotel rooms have two queen-size beds while some have one king, and all have a private porch or balcony. All rooms have air conditioning, phones, radio alarm clocks and hair dryers.
Grand Canyon Lodge
Location
North Rim, Grand Canyon National Park, Arizona

The only lodging inside the park on the more remote North Rim, historic Grand Canyon Lodge on Bright Angel Point was completed in 1928. Constructed of native Kaibab limestone and ponderosa pine timber, the complex was designed to harmonize with its rocky and forested setting, with the appearance of a natural rock outcropping. The lodge was designed by Gilbert Stanley Underwood, an employee of the Union Pacific Railroad who also designed destination hotels at Zion, Bryce Canyon and Yosemite. In addition to its classic rustic architecture, Grand Canyon Lodge is noted for its status as the only complete surviving lodge and cabin complex in the national parks. Perched atop the canyon rim, this National Historic Landmark offers guests seclusion, peace and comfort amid one of the world's most stunning backdrops. A variety of accommodation types including detached cabins are based on availability and assigned on arrival. Meals in the lodge dining room overlooking the canyon are a memorable moment in any stay. 
Thunderbird Lodge
Location
South Rim, Grand Canyon National Park, Arizona

Situated directly on the Grand Canyon's south rim, our rooms at Thunderbird Lodge have partial canyon views—a rare treat when it comes to lodging within the national park. Rooms have either one king or two queen beds. Amenities include a full bath, refrigerator, flat screen satellite TV, telephone, hair dryer, and safe. The lodge's design blends contemporary style with natural elements, and the decor evokes the Native American heritage of the area, conveyed in patterns and colors that capture the feel of the Southwest. Given its location in the heart of the historic district, guests can walk out the door to highlights of the village, including Kolb Studio, Verkamp's Visitor Center, classic gift shops and the Bright Angel Trailhead. The lodge also offers direct access to the Rim Trail, which spans from Hermits Rest to the Kaibab Trailhead—approximately 12.8 miles.
