The name "Zion" means a place of peace and refuge. As a sanctuary with over 146,000 acres of cliffs, canyons, diverse plant and animal life, and uninterrupted beauty, Zion is well-named. Its massive sandstone walls, some as high as 3,800 feet, offer an opportunity for serenity and reflection for all who visit.
Designed by Gilbert Stanley Underwood in the 1920s, the Zion Lodge was destroyed by fire in 1966. That same year, the lodge was rebuilt in 100 days, quickly restoring the influx of visitors to Zion, but sacrificing the hotel's rustic design. In 1990, the exterior was restored to its original classic appearance.
The lodge features historic cabins with two double beds, full bath, gas log fireplace and private porch. Motel rooms are also available, most with queen-size beds and some with a king-size bed, full bath and private porch or balcony. All rooms feature air conditioning, phones, radio alarm clocks and hairdryers. The lodge is open year-round, featuring special winter rates and packages December through mid-March.
Red Rock Grill, Zion Lodge's recently renovated dining room, boasts spectacular views of the magnificent surroundings. Reservations are required. Casual, outdoor dining can be found at the seasonal Castle Dome Cafe, which offers relaxed seating and park fare favorites.
As the park concessionaire, Xanterra Parks & Resorts is proud to operate Zion Lodge facilities. We continue to set the standard for ecologically sound parks & resorts that complement, not harm, their natural surroundings.
