The acres of flowers, lush lawns, and canyon views at this riverside hotel make it more than a place to rest your head, and you could throw a rock and hit the south entrance to the park. A variety of room choices include modern suites with large soaking tubs and vaulted ceilings, and some have direct access to the gardens; those on the second floor have a balcony overlooking the Virgin River. The beautiful grounds include a pair of two-tier waterfall hot tubs—one by
the pool and the other close to the river—which are great for soothing your muscles after a day's hiking in the park. The Cliffrose Café serves breakfast, lunch, and dinner, and will provide picnic sandwiches to go.
