Is there such a thing as a "casual tuxedo"? The Rustler was just that, the staff, the views, the food, the location, and did I mention the views. It was just the venue to reconnect with old friends as we hunkered down and reawakened how we were connected in the first place!

I would highly recommend the Rustler Lodge. The location, service and food were absolutely beyond expectations. We went near the end of the season and found great snow conditions. I especially enjoyed the outdoor heated pool overlooking the mountain.

Spent an extended weekend at Alta's Rustler Lodge. The level of service and the spectacular location make this lodge the perfect place to enjoy everything Alta and Snowbird have to offer. The skiing was fantastic and the apres ski environment of the Rustler is so great - casual and relaxing. The food is off the charts as well - we... More

Bad news: they put onions in the hashbrowns and as far as I'm concerned that is grounds for firing the chef. Now that is not the only reason since almost every dish we ate had some kind of weird/off ingredient that took the food from very good to OK. Oh and ceaser salad is aweful, and they said it was...

On approaching the hotel for the first time, keep in mind you are entering from the back of the property. The classic old school lodge look at first alarmed us to a kitschy formula, but the front desk and manager on duty were first rate and put us at rest. In a word this hotel is great. It's the best...

Great stay at the Rustler. They delivered on their value proposition of great service and location, location, location. Got lucky and even got a nice dump of snow to cap my last day of skiing. The team in the powder house did a great job of fitting me with demo equipment and this is always a very nice feature of... More

This is a very laid back lodge. It is a great ski out lodge with fantastic views. The spa is solid and we had a great time in the heated pool. The food in the restaurant is excellent and the staff is attentive. Amazing breakfasts and dinner included. This is a great place!

Alta, and Rustler specifically, is the antidote to Deer Valley's splendiferousness. Rustler sits on the only Avalanche-proof spot in Little Cottonwood Canyon - a little promontory with its own short chair lift, almost equidistant between both of Alta's bases: Albion and Wildcat - perfect. Dinner is included in the room rate because, well, there aren't a lot of other options.... More

My wife and I surprised our kids with a week long ski trip to Alta, UT. We stayed at the Rustler Lodge and can't imagine a more perfect stay. The Rustler staff were incredibly helpful, attentive and personable. We drove our rental car into the covered garage, handed the keys to a staff member and our bags were waiting in... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Alta's finest ski-in/ski-out location, unparalleled personal attention and our tradition of excellence distinguish the Rustler Lodge from the rest. Enjoy our amenities, including an outdoor heated pool, indoor/outdoor Jacuzzis, sauna, eucalyptus steam room, spa services and ski shop. After a fabulous day of skiing ride our chair lift back to the lodge to enjoy the best apres and complimentary appetizers in our Eagles Nest Lounge. Our 85 rooms range from modest to luxury accommodations that include new "Comphy" linens. Daily rates include a full breakfast and gourmet dinner and FREE WIFI. The Rustler, while elegant, is congenial and relaxed, the way we feel a ski lodge should be. ... more   less
