  • Bright Angel Lodge Cabin - My New Happy Place

    by steve7739 on 2020-02-14 04:59 am

    I had a fantastic two-night stay in a Partial View cabin. The cabins are quite basic, but they have everything you need and are very cosy.

    I enjoyed the "Partial View" - which was stunning, with nothing partial about it. The one thing to note with the view is that there is a public walkway between the cabins and the edge of the canyon, so during the day you have people walking by constantly (and looking in, because the cabins look so inviting), and by night there's nothing to see because its, well, dark. For that reason, whilst a view is nice, it's really not necessary since the non-view cabins are so close. If I was going back, I would definitely opt for a cabin but probably wouldn't bother with one with a view.

    The location is simply perfect, right next to the Canyon, with the facilities of the village all within walking distance (even the dining room at the El Tovar and the food court at Maswik Lodge were less than ten minutes' walk away).

    The one thing to note is that each cabin is connected to one or two others, and the walls are REALLY thin. I could hear every conversation and movement from my neighbours as clear as if they were stood right next to me (and they weren't being particularly noisy). You WILL need to take earplugs, and I would suggest that the hotel should provide them as an amenity with the room.

    The member of staff that checked me in and out was so warm and friendly (I'm so sorry that I didn't remember her name, but she was from New England) and couldn't have been more welcoming and informative.

    Travelling in January it was quite quiet, and I had no trouble parking close to my cabin (although I could understand if it was more difficult in the summer).

    The next time I'm at the dentist, lying back with my mouth open, my cabin at the Bright Angel Lodge will be the "happy place" that my mind goes to for peace, tranquility and relaxation.

  • Some issues

    First off, the staff is very friendly, the location (as others have stated) is amazing, and the room is very clean.
    However, our room had some issues. The bed (for the standard room advertised for two adults) is tiny, pretty much just a glorified single-person bed. The wall is super thin, and so if you want to get to bed early, you'll be kept awake until pretty late by people talking and slamming doors in the hallway. The WiFi is super spotty, almost nonexistent, though the phone signal is good.
    This place is really more of a 3.5 star. Service, location, and cleanliness is all 5-star, but the above issues really drags the place down.

  • Amazing views!

    We stayed here two nights; one night before heading in to Phantom Ranch and one night after getting back from Phantom Ranch. The front desk clerks were very friendly and helpful! Our room had the most amazing view! The description online said "partial view" but ours had a direct view of the canyon and it was beautiful! I agree that the walls are thin, but the room was cute and cozy and the location was amazing! We would definitely stay here again!

  • Spectacular views!

    We stayed one night prior to leaving the next morning to take the mule ride down to Phantom Ranch. Staff was friendly and helpful and our cabin was very clean and cozy. Would definitely like to go back when we can stay several nights. Plenty of fun things to do and the views can't be beat!

  • Unbeatable Location

    I have a particular affinity for historic lodging wherever it is available. On this same trip, we stayed at the Hotel Monte Vista in Flagstaff, La Posada in Winslow, and the Grand Canyon Hotel in Williams. At the South Rim of the Grand Canyon itself, the most historic lodging options are the El Tovar and the Bright Angel. Of the two, Bright Angel Lodge is the more affordable.

    We got a cabin in the middle of the price range, so we didn't have the view out of our front door directly onto the canyon. Nevertheless, the location couldn't have been better, especially at the end of our sunrise-to-unset hike through the Grand Canyon one day. We could just stumble back to our cabin instead of having to take a bus or walk even further to one of the cheaper lodges further back. The cabin itself was fairly ordinary, but clean and with its own bathroom and shower (also welcome after our huge hike).

    The amenities at Bright Angel aren't really exclusive to the hotel, but they are fun. The main restaurant there was more than sufficient. We didn't try the bar or the more expensive steakhouse on site though. The history room has a wonderful exhibit and, when we were there, a pair of former Harvey Girls were holding court. The Harvey Girls were the servers staffing the Harvey House restaurants and hotels along the Santa Fe railway, including Bright Angel Lodge. While the sheriffs may have pacified the West, the Harvey Girls civilized it. It was very interesting chatting with them.

    Bright Angel Lodge strikes a nice balance of price, location, and quality of accommodation.
