Top Tips for Choosing Hotels Near Zion National Park

by | Apr 10, 2023

Planning a Southern Utah adventure in 2023? One of the first things you’ll need to do is choose your Zion accommodation. With so many hotels near Zion National Park to choose from, narrowing down your options can be a little overwhelming.

Keep reading as we explore some of the best tips for narrowing down your options and choosing the best hotels near Zion National Park.

Consider Your Location

There are tons of options for hotels near Zion National Park. But just because a property advertises itself as a Zion accommodation doesn’t necessarily mean that it’s nearby.

Plenty of hotels and motels in St. George and Washington market to travelers planning a visit to Zion National Park. But booking one of these hotels without doing your research first could mean winding up staying at a property that’s an hour or more away from the park.

Choosing Virgin and Springdale resorts means enjoying quick and easy access to Zion National Park during your stay. Zion Wildflower Resort is just 20 minutes from the South Entrance to Zion. This means that you can get to the park early in the day to grab a good parking spot for the Zion Canyon Shuttle or hit the trails before the crowds descend. Our Zion accommodation is also located almost halfway between Zion’s Lower Canyon and Kolob Canyons, the lesser-known but equally incredible section of the park that many visitors overlook.

Make Your Zion Accommodation a Part of the Adventure

Planning a vacation to Southern Utah usually means spending lots of time exploring Zion National Park, day tripping to Bryce Canyon, and maybe visiting a few Utah state parks. After planning out each day’s adventures, many travelers don’t think twice about booking a standard chain hotel for their stay. But why not make where you’re staying as much a part of the adventure as how you spend each day of your trip?

A stay at Zion Wildflower Resort can help take your vacation to the next level. Instead of returning to a boring hotel room after a long day of exploring some of the most incredible natural landscapes in the world, you’ll return to an amazing evening in a canvas glamping tent, covered wagon, or beautiful bungalow. Surrounded by beautiful desert landscapes, your stay at Zion Wildflower is as much a part of the adventure as your time in the park.

Add a Touch of [Affordable] Luxury

Choosing unique and memorable hotels near Zion National Park can help you make your accommodation a part of the adventure. But don’t sacrifice comfort for a unique experience.

While roughing it on a camping trip can make for some great memories, it can also leave you feeling tired, sore, and cranky during your vacation. Instead, look for ways to add a dose of adventure alongside a touch of luxury. For instance, when you book a stay in a Zion Wildflower Grand Mesa Tent, you get the experience of sleeping with just a tent between you and a sky full of stars, but without having to rough it. Enjoy plush feathertop beds, en-suite bathrooms, and even a coffee maker. Our more rustic Watchman Tents still feature plush beds, soft carpets, outlet ports, private patios, and more. 

Look for On-site Amenities

Traveling with kids, your extended family or a group of friends can make for some incredible memories. But it can also make traveling a little more complicated. Getting to and from your destination each day can be stressful and time-consuming. Entertaining little ones and making sure that everyone in your group gets to do something that they enjoy often means not having much downtime. Even if you’re traveling with just one other person, trying to squeeze too much into your trip can leave you feeling exhausted.

Choosing a Zion accommodation with plenty of on-site amenities means that you can schedule some downtime into your itinerary. Whether you spend an afternoon cooling off in the pool or an evening gathered around the campfire, the downtime you spend at Zion Wildflower is great for relaxing and enjoying some quality time together with your family and friends.
