  • Location and history in one

    A wonderful old hotel on the canyon rim. We enjoyed two nights at this location and it was fantastic. The staff at the front desk and concierge also are somewhat mercurial but I will chalk that up to ... well, I am not sure what to chalk it up to but it is what it is. They are not mean but certainly won't win "friendliest staff of the year" contest.
    That being said ... I did meet the most amazing staff member over the phone. Damon helped track down my child's stuffy that he had left at the hotel 4 days earlier. Damon went out of his way to help us connect the stuffy he had with what I had entered into ''. He walked us through the process because the first go around, I had been sent an update that the stuffy was not at the hotel. Thank you so much to Damon who went out of his way to make a kid and his family very, very happy! Because of the experience with Damon, I am giving the El Tovar Hotel 5* rather than 4*

    We arrived at El Tovar on a very snowy March Wednesday and couldn't find parking. The front desk arranged to have a bellhop guide is to a parking spot a distance away then transport are luggage back to the hotel. We were so appreciative. The front desk was so helpful, welcoming and professional throughout our stay. We had decided to go a bit late and I had been stalking the website for a cancellation - which came up less than a week before our arrival. The rooms are small, but generously equipped (Kerrigan, half/half, Lillie's, toiletries) and we had a view of the canyon. A 4 minute walk from our room was the canyon - great for cold mornings to see the sunrise. Pricey but Great trip!

  • Loved the atmosphere

    If you are a fan of the old hotels that reeks of history, you'll probably enjoy this hotel. The look and feel of the lobby, the stained logs used to make the hotel that still bore imprints from hammer marks made a century ago, the animal mounts throughout, were all incredible. We ate at the dining room for dinner and breakfast, and the food was great, with a great view of the canyon if you are lucky enough to be seated by the window. You are also conveniently located right next to the Rim Trail right next to the hotel. We went in early February, so we didn't have any issues with parking. It wasn't easy locating the hotel once you enter the park, even with a GPS. The prices were reasonable as well, and being in the National Park you don't get stuck with the myriad of weird taxes they tack onto your bill (it was about only 8% of our bill).

  • The lodge was good, the rooms are not

    The rooms in this 100+ year old property are badly out of date. There is no room in the room. Keruig coffee machines are a nice touch but you'll have to haul your own luggage up the stairs to reach your room. The bathroom has no shelf space and to heat vent - so it's frigid in the bathroom. It takes 3 or 4 minutes for the hot water to arrive in the shower and it doesn't get very hot. Not a good experience overall and a very poor value.

  • Great location only

    There was so much hype about this hotel and trying to get in was so hard. We got here and although the room was ready, it was very run down. No view. Hotel was the Perfect location but that's it. Very disappointing. I would probably stay at the Bright Angel if visiting.
