In the [poi=5438]Grand Canyon[/poi] Village there are many hotels of different prices. Maybe it because of its location, right on the slope and the most impressive. El Tovar Lodge is a lovely wooden structure built in the year 1905. Its name honors the first European to set foot conquering the Grand Canyon. We ate here. The interior is wonderful, and the food is not bad at all.
If visiting the Grand Canyon to Page, this is the only place where you can sleep and eat . Maybe it is a bit expensive. You can look at the website for prices of everything. The place is a motel, restaurant and store, and is run by Navajo people. The whole place is beautifully decorated. The restaurant is open late and many dishes are Navajo. It has 60 double rooms which cost between 80 and $ 120, and suites 100 to $ 190 with taxes included. In high season, if you go after noon cannon, although it is only 57 miles from this, if you have no reservation in Page, it may be your only option.
The Grand Hotel is two miles from Grand Canyon National Park in Grand Canyon, Arizona, 2 blocks from the IMAX Theatre, 7 miles from the South Rim. It has a big indoor pool and spa, and Internet access in the lobby, and a Western restaurant, and a lounge that provides entertainment at night. Its gift shop sells Native American art and jewelry, as well.
Grand Hotel Grand Canyon is a very clean hotel with a restaurant that puts on Native American shows in the evenings. If you book on your own, make sure to take a good look at the room you're booking. The room I booked looked like something from a cheap motel so I went to reception and they upgraded me to a suite for the same price. It's located just a few minutes from the South Rim of the Grand Canyon.
Mather Campground is very near the Grand Canyon, in the same national park. It has all the necessary facilities: clean showers, drinking water, laundry... You are also right next to the park's supermarket in Grand Canyon Village. It takes only a few minutes to get to the Grand Canyon to admire the sunset or the sunrise: Magical! In short, this is a very decent site if you are looking for a less expensive accommodation. This campground is perfect place to spend the night before continuing on your journey. It is shaded by pine trees, and many squirrels come to visit. A great place, especially for stargazing in the summer. Note:There are very large common areas throughout the campsite, with many American camping tables and barbecues.
After visiting the Grand Canyon, we went to check into our rooms. Given that it's one of the few hotels in the area, there was a crowd and it took us a little while to finally get out keys. The guy at the reception kept their composure and explained everything before giving us the keys to our bungalows. The bungalows were great and we have no complaints on that front. But with regard to the cafe and the internet, there's definitely room for improvement. It's a really good place to disconnect from the world for a few days and enjoy the beauty of the area. The Grand Canyon is one of the seven wonders of the world, after all!
The Bright Angel Lodge is more than just a hotel...it's a local icon! The colorful doors are immediately recognizable and it's near the Bright Angel Trail trail and its beautiful views of the Grand Canyon. The hotel itself has a few rooms but really it's more famous for being a restaurant.
El Tovar is like a Swiss chalet in the Grand Canyon National Park. They have around 80 rooms and the prices are a bit high (about $150.00/night) but it's a luxury hotel and the views from the rooms are absolutely unbeatable.
