My partner and I stayed at El Tovar in December for 1 night. We wanted to visit the south rim of the Grand Canyon while we were visiting Las Vegas and thought an overnight would make the journey even more special. We weren't wrong! The hotel is in a brilliant location with a lovely room and great views of the... More

Great service, nice people and location cannot be beat. The wine selection was good as well. The food was not so good. Breakfast was fine but the dinner was less than par. While in their defense, it is the best dinner on the South Rim of the Canyon. But that goes more to how bad dinning is in the area.... More

I recently spent one night at the El Tovar Hotel after driving up from Phoenix for the day. They were running a special so I got a fantastic room with rim views for almost half the normal night price. I had a fabulous warm cider drink in the lounge and a scrumptious dinner in the dining room. The room had... More

After trying to book Phantom Ranch (at the bottom of the Canyon) for years and not ever being able to get the dates I wanted, I just took whatever they had last year for my family of 4. They charged my credit card close to $1,000 immediately. We drove 11 hours only to get a call letting us know that... More

One of the COOLEST places I have ever stayed…. Great views, lots of history, and really great food. And the only place I have ever stayed , that when I walked out at night to get something from my truck, that had bull elk grazing in the front drive.

This is a truly beautiful US historic hotel. Book early. The rooms are very comfortable and the dinning area wonderful surroundings and food. The steak and wine are such a treat having hiked up and down the Canyon. I stayed after rafting on a Dory 283 mile down and after camping and sleeping in the open for three weeks the... More

El Tovar is one of the historic hotels located along the South Rim of the Grand Canyon Village. This National Historic Landmark was built in 1905 in the architectural style that is a cross between a Swiss Chalet and Norwegian Villa. It is a beautiful building to see and explore at the Grand Canyon. We visited El Tovar and really... More

The hotel is an old historic property located on the canyon rim a short distance from the Grand Canyon Train depot. Transportation is available to the hotel from the depot for those with limited mobility. The hotel has a large dining room with a fireplace at each end and a view of the canyon from one end. Those arriving by... More

Pricey, yes. But if you want a hotel inside Grand Canyon this is it. This as authentic as it gets. The room was nice, I was lucky enough to get the Mary Jane suite. It's two rooms and has a balcony over looking the GC. Having done it (in winter) you are definitely better off saving a few hundred and... More

Great hotel for the area. You aren't going to find anything fancy there, and it is definitely cool to wake up in the morning and see the Grand Canyon. Quick walk to the restaurants in the area, and plenty of parking if needed.
