  • Fantastic location!

    There is no better way to see the Grand Canyon-at Christmas! Our family was simply stopping for the evening to get a glimpse of the spectacular sight. I wish we could have stayed longer. The hotel was wonderfully historic and fun to experience. It was clean, the staff were extremely helpful and professional. And we enjoyed the delicious restaurant. Be prepared-it is pricey. Enjoy!!

  • Beautiful stay

    We had an impeccable stay at El Tovar. The location was amazing and boy, my partner and I had a spectacular walk around the beautiful scenery and the interesting historical souvenir shops around the area. The hotel has great amenities including a electric charger if you have a Tesla or other electric car. The food and ambience in the restaurant was extraordinary and we would highly recommend eating there. If you are coming to the grand canyon ensure you book El Tovar for a truly memorable experience.

  • Meh

    We booked a room fairly last-minute for one night and had a mildly unpleasant experience. The woman at check-in was unfriendly. The man called to help with our bags was outright creepy. Our room was on the first floor and the windows looked at the parking lot. We had an incredibly loud fan/radiator thing that seemed to produce no heat. The two worst aspects: (1) My husband logged onto the Internet and then it prevented me from logging on because only one device was "allowed." I asked him to log off so I could log on and he followed the directions but it still wouldn't let me log on. This is ridiculous. The same internet provider at the Zion Lodge didn't do this. How chintzy can this lodge be?! (2) We could hear the couple in the adjacent room as though they were in our room. Really. I couldn't believe it. We could hear every word. Thank goodness they kept the same hours we did. If not, it would have been a nightmare. We did utilize the location to wake up before dawn and hike around the rim watching the sunrise...that was wonderful...but the lodge itself? Just okay.

  • A Pleasant Stay

    We have just stayed at El Tovar for three nights. Our room was nice and clean with a lot of space. It was cleaned and reset each day to a very high standard. We made great use of the coffee machine in our room although the cleaners did not resupply the tea (for us English!). I went to the Reception and this was soon rectified. We did find the WiFi a bit inadequate, however I am sure that this will be addressed when the hotel is refurbished later this year.
    We were disappointed by the Dining Room. I have written a separate review.
    On the whole, I would like to thank the staff in the hotel for a most enjoyable stay.

  • Nice historic hotel with unfriendly staff

    We chose El Tovar for its historical importance as landmark of the Grand Canyon and thought that the service would be in line.
    But instead of a standard, customary nice smile and a welcoming greeting, all what we got was bucket full of ice. The receptions was exceptionally icy and her only words were:
    "Your name?
    Spell it!
    Your ID.
    Your card.
    Sign it here and here..."
    She didn't use any please, or thanks or whatever is commonly regarded as basic and elementary among civilised mankind.
    It was rude and me and my wife were shocked. as if she was a slave there.
    Similar approach at the entry to the famous restaurant. Luckily we had an earlier reservation. Otherwise we would be left at their total mercy which is an open risk.
    Thankfully the breakfast staff was very nice and friendly and the experience was nice.
    The room itself was rather heavily overpriced: the floor was squeaking with every step, the TV cabinet was shaking and about to fall down. A noisy equipment outside did not let us sleep in the quietness of the Grand Canyon.
    It would be nice if they treat some presidents like they treated us ;-)
