Our Experience In Virgin

Mark and Kristen at The Subway near Virgin Utah

We’ve stayed at hotels in Springdale, Virgin, La Verkin and Hurricane throughout separate trips to Zion in October 2019 and December 2021. In Virgin, we stayed at the popular Fairfield Inn hotel for one night. We also spent a night at Zion Watchman Campground and Zion Lodge, so we’ve got a lot of hotel experience in the area. Read more about us.

We decided to stay in Virgin because it was convenient for us to hike The Zion Subway, and it was the only place we hadn’t stayed around the park. We ate at the excellent Balcony One restaurant on the west side of Virgin.

Is Virgin A Good Place To Stay For Zion?

Virgin, Utah is a great place to stay for visiting Zion because it has many unique hotels in remote desert settings near the park. Couples who want a romantic break or families who want a peaceful escape are best suited to the style of hotels available in this area.

Springdale is the obvious alternative to Virgin when choosing a hotel near Zion. It’s closer to the park’s main hikes and it’s a livelier town with a much greater selection of restaurants when compared to Virgin.

If you’re looking for cheaper alternatives to Virgin and Springdale, you should look at hotels in La Verkin and Hurricane. The two towns are further from Zion but you’ll find much better value for money.

Hotels in Virgin Utah are more expensive than any other place you can stay near Zion National Park. This is because accommodations are either remote campers with hot tubs or luxury glamping tents. The exception is Fairfield Inn, which is a traditional hotel with more affordable prices.

Bear in mind that you’ll pay 13-14% hotel tax on top of your base rate. And due to the nature of the accommodation types in Virgin, you might have to pay additional property service fees, resort fees or even a cleaning fee (similar to booking an Airbnb).

Our Verdict

Hotels in Virgin UT are expensive when compared to other areas around Zion National Park. But they’re unique, remote and luxurious which might suit couples or families seeking a different experience to a typical hotel stay when visiting Zion.

Fairfield Inn and Suites is the only traditional hotel in Virgin. Zion Wildflower and Zion White Bison offer affordable routes into a unique glamping experience. Autocamp and Under Canvas are more luxurious glamping options and Open Sky is the ultimate luxurious splurge.

We stayed at Fairfield Inn because it was affordable and close to Left Fork Trailhead in Kolob Terrace. Our itinerary was packed full of hikes, so we didn’t want to splurge on luxury glamping because we wouldn’t have gotten our money’s worth. But next time, we’ll definitely consider staying at one of the more luxurious Virgin UT hotels.
