The View Hotel

Monument Valley, Utah

The hotel

The ageless and the contemporary combine effortlessly at this superb hotel, boasting some of the most breathtaking views around! As you gaze out of big picture windows, the iconic formations of the world famous Mittens stand before you in timeless beauty. Designed with respect for its sacred setting, ‘Green’ building standards and environmentally friendly procedures are very much the order of the day. Facilities include a very welcoming lounge in which to enjoy a drink or two and the View Restaurant, run by five star Navajo chef, MacNeal Crank. Sit back and relax over sumptuous cuisine, combining Navajo and American influences, often to the strains of flute music, courtesy of a local musician. Another highlight is the Monument Valley Trading Post, a gift shop offering an incredible range of Indian Arts and Crafts, including one of the largest Navajo rug collections in the world, so make sure there’s room in your suitcase for a few holiday souvenirs!

This is the only hotel on the Navajo reservation and each room has a great view across the stunning Monument Valley. Rooms are comfortable and a good size with a terrace overlooking the incredible valley. Our big issue was the restaurant - average food, chaotic service and not much of a smile from anyone. We appreciate the Navajo are proud people,… Read more
This is the only hotel on the Navajo reservation and each room has a great view across the stunning Monument Valley. Rooms are comfortable and a good size with a terrace overlooking the incredible valley. Our big issue was the restaurant - average food, chaotic service and not much of a smile from anyone. We appreciate the Navajo are proud people, but their attention to customer service was poor. The Front desk was efficient and friendly but the restaurant was disorganised and he staff surly. But you can't beat the views. Read less

This is the place to stay when you visit here. There are seats set up to watch the sunset and all rooms look down into the Valley. We picked up sandwiches and ate on our balcony and basked in the scenery

I have nothing to say to fault our cabin. It was perfect- and all about the view. We arrived after a long day driving an hour or so before sunset. We walked up to the hotel/restaurant building to get some food to take back to the cabin. However, there wasn’t much appealing left, or available to begin with.

I have nothing to say to fault our cabin. It was perfect- and all about the view. We arrived after a long day driving an hour or so before sunset. We walked up to the hotel/restaurant building to get some food to take back to the cabin. However, there wasn’t much appealing left, or available to begin with. This is something we should have looked into before we got there. The cabin has a fridge and microwave, we just had nothing to put in them! As it took awhile to enter the park due to it being a popular time to arrive, we didn’t think we’d have time to get to the nearest store and back again before sunset. So, we ate at the restaurant. Such a shame to not have been able to eat in our cabin. We were in a 3 week trip had eaten out every night, we were looking for to picking up some supplies and relaxing on our verandah- just us and the view. The food at the restaurant wasn’t amazing. Anyway, the cabin. A double bed, plus a bunk bed. Clean and definitely plenty of space for the two of us. Cabin was also very secure when locked up and very private considering there is are 2 rows of cabins. As mentioned- The views. Had a great sleep- curtains open to watch the stars. Woke easily to enjoy the sunrise from bed, before heading into verandah to take some photos. Lots of other people were up, but were being very quiet and respectful. Totally fell in love with the place and will never forget it. 100% recommended!! Just pick up any supplies you need before hand!! Read less

Calling your hotel “The View” seems like a little much, but WOW this place delivers. Located on a perch overlooking Monument Valley, the rooms are designed to maximize the views of this spectacular location. We spent hours on the deck watching the landscape change with the movement of the sun and clouds. At night, the sky show was, um, out-of-this-world. It seems rare to see the milky way these days and in this remote area, with almost no artificial light, the stars seemed close enough to touch… Mesmerizing. Read less

Worth it to stay here if you are in monument valley. We stayed in a premium cabin, very reasonable price and you can’t beat waking up and going to sleep with that view. Only reason it doesn’t get 5 stars is that the restaurant is mediocre - very disappointing. We would still stay again for the view though!
