Stayed for 3 nights in March 2015. Overall, a positive experience and would likely stay again if we chose to ski Alta. But the prices are about the same as options for Deer Valley, so might choose that in a year when Deer Valley has better snow. Stayed for one night in a newly-renovated Alpenglow room. Moved because of a... More

Great five star resort: ski in-ski out homey resort, perfectly located on the Alta mountain. Staff is incredibly helpful, kind and service oriented. Meals are sensational. Your stay includes breakfast and dinner and it is a fantastic place for a family trip! Our kids love coming back and we hope to return for spring skiing for years to come! The... More

By far the nicest lodge in Alta. It has the whole package: great views from everywhere, fantastic bar and dining room (real wood fireplaces), great, attentive staff, many differently configured rooms, all the amenities you could wish for, free shuttles around Alta and Snowbird,and,, oh yes, the food is great. You will appreciate the short chair lift to the lodge... More

We stayed for three days in Alta in early April '15. My husband and kids skied while I relaxed and had spa treatments. The views were beautiful. The food was great. THe spa was lovely. I would definitely go back. We had a suite of rooms 810-811, with a door open between them. The only slight negative there is that... More

My daughter and i had a wonderful time at Alta with the Rustler as our hotel. Dinner and breakfast were included in the room rate and we found the food great (she is a vegetarian and they accommodated her with many off menu entrees even though there were always some vegetarian options on the menu) and I always found more...

By no means do I want people to think that Rustler's lodge is a bad hotel; that's really not the case. BUT, it is absolutely not worth the fantastic amount of money that they get away with charging for their rooms. They charge around $700/night for a single room, or in my case $220/night for a shared dorm with three... More

Alta is world class skiing at reasonable prices. Rustler's is the toniest Alta resort. The rooms however are ordinary and dated but with incredible views. The location is perfect though the service is uneven. The pool and hot tub are in a majestic setting. Rustler guests are quite moneyed and quite friendly. Many grandparents treating their grandkids. If you love... More

The Rustler is by far the nicest of the lodges at Alta. the service, food, accommodations and amenities are wonderful. This is an excellent place for a romantic getaway or family trip. The skiing is the best in Utsh.

Stayed in Rustler March 2015. Very convenient location where you can ski right onto the lifts. The hotel also has a lift that takes you right to the ski room at the end of the day. Perfect for those looking for a ski-in, ski-out option. There is a shuttle right from the airport at Salt Lake City. Hotel is family-run,... More

We went back for more in February (and last year too, though I didn't review it then) and nothing has changed--which is great news. We again were at our breakfast table before they were officially open and my husband had multiple extra courses at every dinner. We love the addition last year of the outdoor hot tub though it could... More
