  • Great historic hotel

    by piratebob2017 on 2017-10-19 04:25 pm

    My wife and I stayed at the El Tovar for two nights in September. The location itself is fantastic for a stay at the Grand Canyon. Mere yards from the canyon south rim. Keep in mind this is a historic hotel and is aged. BUT the experience is well worth the stay. Parking can be sparse but is manageable. The dining room was beautiful but familiarize yourself with all the dining options available within short walking distance as the El Tovar evening dining required a reservation and filled quickly(at least in early September).

  • Dissapointing

    by deaconwife on 2017-10-17 03:59 pm

    The location of the hotel is amazing but unfortunately that is where it ends.

    The hotel does not have its own car park and therefore you can spend a considerable amount of time driving around trying to find a space.

    The reception staff were surly to the point of being rude.

    The standard queen room we were allocated was tiny and could barely walk around the bed, the whole hotel is "tired" and in need of a significant makeover in all areas.

    Te bathroom was nice and looked as though it had recently been renovated and the toiletries were also of good quality

    You have to book for dinner and breakfast in the dining room, the staff here were indifferent to say the least and the food was underwhelming and over seasoned. They even managed to overdress the salad.

    We were so dissapointed we cancelled our reservation for our 2nd night. The breakfast offering was just as poor, and should have sent the French Toast back as it was disgusting.

    To top it all a Racoon made a guest appearance in the dining room at dinner and were told it keeps on happening!!!

    Aside from location this would not be a hotel we would recommend, other than stay for one night see the Grand Canyon and leave

  • Breakfast and Lunch well worth the visit

    We didn't stay at El Tovar Hotel, however we ejoyed breakfast once and lunch twice during our visit to the Grand Canyon. All three experieinces were fantastic. Our breakfast waitress was Cierra (not sure of spelling) and lunch was Winnie (Wintson, I think). Both neat kids. Cierra was especially full of spunk and personality. The food was sensational during all three meals. Simply fantastic. Cool, old hotel. Our visit was well worth every penny.

  • Sunrise on the Canyon is Unforgettable

    by DRP54 on 2017-10-17 06:22 am

    El Tovar has a perfect setting for walking out and watching sunrise. We brought our coffee and soaked in the view. The lodge is traditional, but the rooms are modern, huge bathroom, great pillows and beds. No view from the rooms, unless you book one of the three suites, which must be very expensive. We booked only one night in advance so paid $$$, but figured it was once in a lifetime. Loved the atmosphere and charm. Staff were very helpful.

  • A Bit of History

    by Daryl C on 2017-10-16 08:25 pm

    I didn't stay at the hotel but it's still worth a visit. It's in the tradition of the grand hotels serviced by the railroad. Heavy timber and dark. It might not be everybody's cup of tea but you need to appreciate the history behind it. Imagine a hundred years ago arriving via the railroad. You'd arrive to this hotel perched on the rim of the canyon with fine linen and china.
