Fodor's Review

Architect Gilbert Stanley Underwood, responsible for many noteworthy national park lodges, designed the original Zion Lodge, which opened in the 1920s but was destroyed by fire four decades later. In 1990, it was restored to its original rustic style, in some cases down to the very paint color. Natural beauty is on display inside and out, from the lobby's rock columns and exposed wood to the cottonwoods shading the sprawling lawn. The main building includes a gift shop, a fine-dining restaurant, and a snack bar. The lodge has received numerous awards for its eco-friendly practices. Recent amenities include bike rentals, open-air narrated tram rides, and an electric-vehicle charging station.
