We stayed as part of a large group, and I found it to be nothing short of fantastic service. The rooms were clean and sophisticated, and well maintained. The food was absolutely fantastic, and their flexibility on every meal was nothing short of world class. I would recommend this to anyone.

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.

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...

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
