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, interior is a bit old, but with plenty of charm and character. Lovely views from the dining room, bar and lounge, and there is a free coffee/tea counter that you can help yourselves to all day. The hotel also puts on a complimentary tea in the afternoon when you return from skiing, which is quite a nice touch.

Plenty of healthy options at every meal, and they are more than happy to do healthy alternatives. Staff are enthusiastic, helpful and friendly.

Spa available, pool and hot tub overlooks stunning views of the mountain. Ski shop right in the hotel where you can rent your skis, and also do good boot-fitting.

Very good stay, highly recommended. Would return.

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 definitely be bigger. Best news for me? They changed the fragrance of their toiletries to grapefruit from orange---so much better. This is not a cheap place to stay, but they make us feel special--like family (in a good way!) every time we go. Service, food and rooms are excellent. This continues to be our go to resort for Utah skiing!

This was our second season visiting the Rustler Lodge, and we went not once, or twice, but three times because the mountain and the lodge offer a unique sanctuary where one can get away from it all, but, still be connected if they want to.

Your visit will start with seamless reservations, taken by Tauni or Kate, and when you arrive they will greet you with a smile, brief you on the lodge and amenities, and then turn you lose as the tension fades away. You will find the inclusive breakfast and dinner to be quite delicious and adaptable to most any needs. You will be greeted each meal by Teresa, Hadley or Kellie, with a genuine smile and care that makes you happy you arrived for your meal. Waiters like Dave & Paul will make sure that your order is just right and servers such as Jack and Bethany will deliver it to your table in good order. Hannah, Kim and John will keep you happy at the bar, and keep your glass as full as you like, with a smile, a good story and a discerning ear if needed. The spa is fantastic after an adventurous day on the mountain, and Amanda, Bobbi and Mariah are a must for the deep tissue massage. The hot tub bubbles and the views are to die for. Oh yes, and the Skiing, which is why your there, is really exceptional at Alta and Snowbird.

However, the most interesting aspect of the Rustler for us, is to meet the guests that have been coming for 25 plus years and the staff that have been around for 8-10 years and more because this is what makes the Rustler different and the place to be if you visit Alta. Each host, waiter, attendant you meet, will have a story…some are there simply for the skiing, others are there because the mountain and the backcountry own their soul, and, some are there because they really are simply dedicated to making your holiday the best it can be.

In the end, most of the stories of how one comes to the Rustler, why they visit, and why they stay will simply make you feel good and make you sorry to leave, but eager to return. We’ve already put our reservation request in for next year and can only hope we will be able to return again and again; because, when we there… there is no place we’d rather be.

this is my second winter spending a week at the Rustler, and it was even nicer this year thatn last, primarily because my roommate and I had a much nicer room. We were in a unit right on the floor with the lobby, which had a couple of queen beds. Last year, we were on one of the lower levels and had a small room with a pair of twins. this wasn much nicer.
The food,, drink and ambiance was terrific. I also availed myself of the ski shop in the resort, demoing skis three days and buying a pair based on this. The folks in the shop were most helpful. I look forward to next year! Maybe better snow?

Comfortable and relaxed, great food and bar, friendly and responsive staff, ski repair/rental shop on premises, and Alta at the front door. Hard to beat! I highly recommend the Rustler Lodge as a ski destination.
