Two Unique Zion Canyon Accommodations

Nov 16, 2017 | Article


If you’re looking for a place to stay during your upcoming trip to Zion National Park that it is a bit different, slightly unconventional, but still luxurious and comfortable, we’ve got two recommendations for you that you’re going to like. Both are located in Springdale, UT in the heart of Zion Canyon surrounded by the towering cliffs that have made Zion so famous over the years. Their locations are also ideal for shopping, eating, and relaxing. Of all the resorts near Zion National Park, these two need to be seriously considered.

Watchman Villas

This is without a doubt one of the most unique places to stay the night in Springdale, UT. These accommodations are actually vacation rentals rather than a traditional hotel. That means more privacy more than anything, in addition to levels of peace and quiet that you just can’t get at a regular hotel. Watchman includes five distinct, original, and separate villas (one of which sits atop the Springdale & Zion Canyon Visitor Center) and are incredibly luxurious and perfectly situated in quite literally the center of town. If you need anything, walk a few steps to the Visitor Center and purchase whatever you need (including food at the nearly-open Barefoot Taco restaurant attached to the Visitor Center).

Cliffrose Lodge & Gardens

The Cliffrose is the second closest hotel to the entrance of Zion National Park and has qualities of its own to boot. Bordering the Virgin River with a path that leads directly into the park, the Cliffrose – like Watchman – adds convenience to luxury. The spectacular gardens that make up the majority of this property are a sight to see. The staff meticulously manicures the grounds on a regular basis to make sure it’s always looking its best. Beachside lounge and grill areas, large lawn areas for outdoor sports and relaxation, fire pits, meandering walkways, two pool areas with hot tubs, an on-site restaurant (Bistro H) and gift shop, order-in breakfast, and a whole lot more make the Cliffrose one of the most popular hotels in Springdale and Zion Canyon. This place really knows how to make a guest feel welcome.

The next time your planning a trip to Zion and are trying to select resorts near Zion National Park where you’d like to stay, make either Watchman Villas or the Cliffrose Lodge and Gardens your choice. We are sure that you will not regret it.
