El Tovar Hotel


    El Tovar Hotel
 in Grand Canyon

Overview

El Tovar Hotel, a former Harvey House, is considered the premier lodging facility at the Grand Canyon, is listed on the National Register of Historic Places, and is a member of Historic Hotels of America since 2012. It opened its doors in 1905 and was most recently renovated in 2005. In the past, the Hotel has hosted such luminaries as Theodore Roosevelt, Albert Einstein, Western author Zane Grey, President Bill Clinton, and many others. On May 28, 1987, The El Tovar Hotel was designated by the U. S. Secretary of the Interior as a National Historic Landmark.

Arguably the first proponent of environmentally friendly tourism, restaurateur Fred Harvey emphasized preservation of the park’s natural resources and ensured the building’s architecture complemented its beauty. Constructed of native stone and Oregon pine, this historic hotel was built as a “destination resort,” and provides an air of venerable dignity. Its location is a mere 20 feet from the rim of the canyon and is one of only a handful of Harvey House facilities that are still in operation.

It also features the canyon’s premier dining facility, El Tovar Dining Room, which seats 211; and El Tovar Lounge, which seats 60. Just inside the historic El Tovar Hotel, visitors will find an elegant gift shop with unique gifts and apparel and a newsstand, another Fred Harvey tradition. Beautifully appointed jewelry cases adorn the lobby and feature jewelry from noted Native American artisans.

El Tovar Hotel is located in Grand Canyon National Park.
