Hotels - Where we stay
Grand Canyon Lodge
A National Historic Landmark, this rustic in-park lodge was built in the 1920's as part of the Union Pacific's 'Loop Tour', joining the lodges built at Bryce Canyon and Zion to develop tourism in Southern Utah. It is the only accommodation available inside the National Park on the North Rim and all buildings are constructed from local stone and timber so that they blend perfectly with the landscape. The Lodge has impressive public spaces that are uniquely Southwestern - the immense Lodge Dining Room and relaxing Sun Lounge have panoramic views through enormous picture windows facing the Canyon. All guests stay in rustic cabins, located close to the Canyon's Rim.
Bryce Canyon Lodge
Set just back from the rim of a dazzling natural amphitheater, the Lodge has unsurpassed access to a fantastic throng of pink-hued stone spires, fins and pinnacles that resemble tall whimsical sculptures or a mad organist's pipe dream. Completely renovated to its original rustic 1920's elegance, this beautiful 'in-park' lodge is on the National Historic Register. All the rooms are comfortably furnished and include a telephone, alarm clock, hairdryer and hair and body products.
Simple, peaceful and harmonious, this lovely inn is situated at the west entrance to Zion National Park with fantastic views of the red sandstone cliffs. Stroll to the hilltop above the lodge to capture inspiring sunsets and invigorating sunrises! All rooms are beautifully appointed and include amenities such as television, telephone, alarm clock, coffee maker and spa body products to enjoy from the Deep Canyon Adventure Spa located on property. The Spotted Dog Cafe is a casual American Bistro restaurant featuring handcrafted gourmet regional cuisine and a superb wine list.
