The 11 Best Hotels and Resorts for Families in Utah!

Great memories are made surrounded by family. In Utah, family getaways are more common than any other type of vacation, so it would make sense that Utah has more than enough options for your next family trip. The follow locations are all prime spots to create those family memories that really do last a lifetime. 

1. Marriott MountainSide, Park City, UT

One of Park City’s most popular resorts, the Marriott MountainSide lodges excited families all year-round. With a spacious pool, multiple hot tubs, and direct access to some of Park City’s most popular attractions, the resort is very nice, but unlike more expensive options, feels like a home. 

2. The Little America Hotel, Salt Lake City, UT

Located in downtown Salt Lake City, the Little America Hotel is the Grand America Hotel’s less pretentious, more family-friendly counterpart. Built years before the Grand America, the Little America provides families with a central Salt Lake City location suited for sightseeing, with all the comfortable perks of a place to call home, if only for a weekend.  

3. Zion Ponderosa Ranch Resort, Mt. Carmel, UT

Neighboring both Zion National Park and Bryce Canyon National Park, the Zion Ponderosa Ranch Resort not only offers access to some of the state’s greatest geological treasures, but also gives guests plenty of entertaining options at the resort. The entire family will enjoy a two-tiered pool, water-slides, Jacuzzis, a climbing wall, a zip-line, and massage amenities as everyone unwinds from a day hiking in the desert. 

4. Pinewoods Resort, Duck Creek Village, UT

Also located in the midst of what seems a million national and state parks, Pinewoods Resort allows your family autonomy while still maintaining an endearing sense of community. If you’re on a road trip, the resort offers RV parking and plenty of space to sprawl out in its family suites. 

5. The Cliff Lodge at Snowbird, Little Cottonwood Canyon, UT

With Snowbird as one of North America’s most prominent ski resorts, it makes sense it would have an awesome ski lodge. With only a short drive from Salt Lake City, you’ll find yourself admiring some of the country’s most stunning mountain views from the comfort of your own room in Cliff Lodge, where you can enjoy affordable luxuries, including the lodge’s spa and salon services. In the summer, Snowbird has plenty of exciting options for families, including ski-lift rides, a zip-line, ropes courses and trampolines. 

6. Majestic View Lodge, Springdale, UT

Neighboring Zion National Park, Majestic View Lodge is named (quite literally) for its “majestic views” of the park. But really, it’s well-worth staying at this place. Not only do you feel like you’ve been transplanted to the old-timey American west, but you enjoy all of it with amenities on hand. That said, it’s not too ritzy for bustling families looking for a nice place to stay. At Majestic View Lodge, you’ve really got it made. 

7. Hyatt Centric Park City, Park City, UT

On the doorstep of Park City’s world famous ski resorts, Hyatt Centric Park City gives you insane accessibility and comfort without as hefty of a price tag as some neighboring hotels. This, in turn, makes it perfect for families who want to get out on the slopes, enjoy their hotel, and come back year after year. 

8. Best Western Ruby’s Inn, Bryce Canyon, UT

Although it is older, Ruby’s Inn is one of Southern Utah’s most popular family spots. Perhaps it is that lack of stereotypical “luxury” that appeals to families, given that Ruby’s feels incredibly authentic and welcoming. What makes this place real luxury? It’s incredible proximity to the beautiful Bryce Canyon National Park. 

9. Zion National Park Lodge, Zion National Park, UT

The only lodging within the borders of Zion National Park, Zion National Park Lodge is everything you would expect from a homey cabin. That said, you don’t have to stay in a personal cabin at the lodge, though that is an option. You can also stay in hotel rooms or suites, that are also located in the hotel. The lodge is located in a hiker’s paradise, though if the kids still need to run around, there is also a large lawn perfect for playing games and having picnics. 

10. Zermatt Resort and Spa, Midway, UT

Just because you have kids in tow doesn’t mean you can’t stay somewhere nice. Zermatt Resort and Spa strikes the perfect balance between luxury and down-home comfort. The kids will always be entertained with workshops, a large pool, and a carousel, but adults can also find peace and relaxation at this Swiss-inspired resort. 

11. Clear Creek Guest Ranch, Orderville, UT

Known as a great place for family reunions, Clear Creek Guest Ranch is also available for smaller family gatherings. Sitting on 1,000 acres of land bordering Zion National Park, there is plenty of room for the kids to roam free both inside and outside. This is the type of place where you can bring your own food, live in a large space with your loved ones, play games, and explore the great outdoors. A place with no pressure, no frills, and all the love.
