5 stars for location, 3 stars for an extremely tiny (but clean) room. Walking right out to the south rim was such a bonus for us traveling with a 3 month old, and we were able to take frequent breaks when needed and go back to the room for naps/feeding. It's also right next to the visitor center where we...

Our family loves to travel to the US National Parks and we are making our way through our bucket list, which includes staying at the historic lodges. During our recent trip the Southwest, we spent 3 nights at the El Tovar Hotel. Overall, we really enjoyed our stay, which enhanced our experience in the park. The hotel was built in...

We had the great misfortune to stay at this hotel yesterday. The only thing it's got going for it is the location and the fact you are inside the park so you get to see the wonderful sunrise over the Grand Canyon. Apart from that it's a great pity someone doesn't load a bomb into one of the helicopters and...

I called for reservations just over a year in advance and was fortunate enough to get the Mary Coulter suite (2 queen beds, deck overlooking Canyon). We also had a "regular" 2 queen room next door. It was fantastic and incredible and amazing. Did I mention it was amazing?!?! Both rooms were super. Very nice. We nearly never left the...

We visited this hotel on our trip to the Grand Canyon. I tried to talk my husband into renting it but he didn't want to pay the $281 a night to stay . In my opinion it would have been worth the money. The hotel itself is kind of old but being in the park to see the sunrise, sunset...

A family of 5 (all adults) spent two nights here between Christmas 2016 & New Year. We managed to arrive just after a snowfall, so the ambience of the surroundings was gorgeous (we're from the sub-tropics, after all). The hotel is old, and therefore we expected an older style and not modern fittings/furnishings/ comforts. The foyer was decorated beautifully for...

The only two things this hotel has going for it is the view and the breakfast. And you can get both without staying there. We stayed there last week, April 14th and 15th, and I wish we hadn't. The room was tiny, and right next to the parking lot.. I mean 2 steps away from the back lot. There was...

Yes, it's an old hotel. Built in 1905 it's not as deluxe as many newer hotels. It is however on the brink of the canyon. Our room was on the lobby level. It was beautifully appointed with a very comfortable bed and a very clean bathroom. Be aware this is ground zero for tourists so the hotel has a very...

My wife and I stayed at the historic Santa Fe Railroad hotel, The El Tovar, at Grand Canyon Village April 7, 8, & 9. The hotel is not worth the price ($250/night) for a number of reasons. Since this is an old hotel, the rooms are smaller than you are used to and there was no storage in the bathroom...

“Ask about room size and accept a larger room on the side away from the canyon; the views are best experienced from outside the hotel”

“First floor only. There are no elevators and no help with luggage”
