Utah's Quail Lodge Gives Guests a Taste of the Swinging '60s
The swinging '60s have been revived at The Quail Park Lodge in Kanab, Utah, bringing what the hotel calls mid-century "nostalgia" to the hotel, not obsolete throwbacks. We'll be waiting to hear from readers who have stayed at the newly restored property to see if it lives up to their promise of bringing cozy "retro Americana" to this millennium.
If you're traveling off the beaten path and are looking for an equally distinct hotel experience, then consider turning down expansive log cabin-like lodgings in favor of Quail Park's quirky environs. In the photos we've seen, curved furnishings, what appear to be Jonathan Adler (or, at least, Jonathan Adler-esque) pottery pieces in the lobby, and bright yellow and blue splashes of color all give Quail Park a mod feel, though it seems pretty tame and not too kitschy.
Room furnishings are pretty standard—hyopallergenic comforters, et cetera—but the real draw here is the location, especially for roadtrippers, who have parks including the nearby Zion, Bryce Canyon, the Grand Canyon and Lake Powell to choose from to sate their need for an outdoorsy experience. Rates start at $79 during peak season ($59 during off-peak season), and TripAdvisor reviews consistently laud Quail Park's comfy, animal-friendly, Mom and Pop ambiance. Groovy.
