Why Ogden is the Perfect Place For a Girls Getaway Weekend

Welcome to Ogden, the city notorious for some of the best hiking, skiing, climbing and dining in the country.

This rustic, yet modern city offers everything that a girl’s weekend getaway is in need of. Whether your trip needs some exciting adventures or much-needed relaxation time, Ogden is the spot for you and your girlfriends.

Where to Stay

Your visit to Ogden begins at one of our many luxurious hotels in our downtown.

Bigelow Hotel (2510 Washington Blvd Ogden, UT 84401), a renaissance-style hotel built in 1927, offers classical suites that include flat screen TVs, coffee makers, minifridges, and free Wi-Fi. This hotel is located right in the heart of downtown, making it the perfect stay for a girls’ getaway.

The Hilton Garden Inn Downtown (2271 S. Washington Blvd Ogden, UT 84401) is another fantastic option to consider for your getaway. This centrally located hotel is proud to offer an indoor pool, hot tub, fitness facility and more. You are a step away from downtown and a step away from the perfect weekend.

If your group of gals is looking for something even a little more secluded, Lakeside Resort Properties (Servicing 6486 E Hwy 39 Huntsville, UT) is the place for you. These luxurious lakeside cottages feature fully stocked kitchens, a private hot tub, Wi-Fi, grocery delivery, a concierge and are located only ten minutes away from Snowbasin Resort.

Ogden is very proud of its history and how it has influenced our city today. If you want to experience some of this history during your overnight stay, book a reservation at The District Lofts (2238 Washington Blvd Ogden, UT 84401). This centrally located space is chic and provides the experience of downtown Ogden living.
