    We were only at the Canyon for one night- originally tried to reserve this hotel, but it was 100% booked. Tried again the night before we were leaving and we were able to get a room. It was awesome! To our delight, we even had a balcony!!!!!! We needed an extra bed, so the staff brought one up- not your typical roll-away bed: It was a nice "real " bed that was brought to the room on a dolly. Sleeping on it was VERY comfortable. The room was so very clean and the hotel was great. The hotel even had board games to lend you if you want to sit in one of the lobby areas and enjoy yourself. Staff was great. We were able to get up and walk outside -right to the rim- and see the sunrise, and then go back and have breakfast. We were so glad that we paid a little extra for this hotel-it was money well spent.

    We stayed at El Tovar for one night..and I all I can say is amazing. The check-in was easy and staff were super friendly. We were upgraded to the manager's suite..not sure why we received the upgrade..but it was appreciated. The room had a bedroom and a separate living area. We had dinner at Angel Lodge and the returned to El Tovar to have drinks and dessert watching the sunset over the GC..absolutely breathtaking.

    You can practically roll out of bed and be at the rim of the Grand Canyon, which is good because you will want any excuse possible to stay out of your room. Our "room" was the size of the closet of a room we stayed in at another National park. The aesthetic is shabby chic with a strong emphasis on shabby. The air conditioner was so loud we couldn't hear each other talking. I realize they are trying to keep the rustic vibe of the surroundings but since you are clearly not spending money on updates, at least have decent towels and linens. If you are doing lots of hiking in the canyon or really want to be close to the canyon, or you enjoy spending lots of money to experience what life was like in the Grand Canyon in the 70's, this is the place for you. If you like a little comfort at the end of the day, go somewhere else. However, there were some pluses, the people working the front desk were very friendly and helpful. The restaurant is fantastic, the lobby is spectacular.

  • Reserve a Suite!

    When we were making reservations, the El Tovar was being renovated and I came across a review where someone had lucked into staying in the Presidential Suite, which got my wheels turning. It turns out, the Presidential Suite (and it's partner across the hall) with it's incredible canyon-rim balcony is approximately $150 per night more than a room without a canyon view at all, but for most of the year it can only be upgraded to within 2 weeks of your stay. The suite has comfortable deck furniture and a very nice pair of binoculars on a tripod for viewing the canyon and sky, 2 comfortable queen beds in the air-conditioned bedroom, and a large sitting room. The decoration was interesting and played to the history of the canyon, with pictures of Roosevelt on his mule, the legislation creating the park, and quotes about the canyon from President Clinton. My only disappointment was that for being just months out of the renovation, they had used a cheap countertop on the bathroom sink, and it was damaged already.

  • Beautiful Historic Hotel

    Was so excited to stay at El Tovar- the original Grand Canyon hotel built in 1905. Be sure to check out the Teddy Roosevelt dining area and the moose head that he shot. Love the big porch with rockets.
