Wow, I LOOOOOOOOVE this hotel! Totally gorgeous historic hotel with so much character and charm. We were upgraded to a suite for our one night stay and I only wish we had stayed longer. We got an amazing rate because they are upgrading their restaurant so we had to go down to another hotel for dinner but that didn't bother... More

Before I began my review, let me mention a few things coming from a professional (I am a travel agent of 12 years). First you should look at all the resorts within the park to see which best suits your needs. I stayed both here and the Maswick Lodge but toured all of the hotels within the park and would... More

We had a couple of very pleasant nights at this charming, historic lodge, The location can`t be beaten, Grand Canyon is just a few steps away, and the hotel itself was very nice with it`s oldtime atmosphere. We got a nice,spacious modern room with a charming stylish big bathroom with all the usual amenites but what really made this room... More

We stayed in the presidential suite. It was absolutely perfect. The view, the beds, the rooms, the room service. I can gush about this place for days. Deer outside in the evening and morning is so calm in. The views of the canyon from the balcony in this suite were absolutely breathtaking. I cannot describe the beauty of this place,... More

Historic lodge with a very small room. Walk out the door to the Grand Canyon but because of it's history and location, there were people constantly in the halls and in the lobby. We didn't expect the crowds at this time of year but it was incredibly busy, it was difficult to find a restaurant to have a meal without... More

I was pretty impressed with this place. It has a very genuine park lodge feel, more so than most other park lodges Iv'e stayed at in other places. The service was quite good, the rooms were clean, and of course the location unbeatable. i also liked the peaceful feel of it-it was very empty-but that's probably just a winter thing.... More

We stayed at the El Tovar for one night in mid January while visiting the Grand Canyon. It was good and bad. The good….. Great location – walk out the front door and there’s the Grand Canyon. Easy access to the Arizona Room – a fine restaurant. While not overly outgoing the staff was efficient – both checkin and checkout... More

Our family of 5 adults stayed in the Mary Coulter suite and had an amazing desk that actually looked like it was hanging over the Grand Canyon! Very comfortable rooms and we used room service and the staff at the El Tovar are wonderful and friendly.

A classic hotel with lots of great history. Recently remodeled rooms. We were fortunate that they upgraded us to their large suite so can't tell what the "regular" rooms are like. Our suite was quite large (3 rooms). The bathroom was nicely refurbished. The bed was very comfortable. TVs (if you care) in the bedroom and, in our case, in... More

The hotel has a great feel, like there's so many wonderful adventures waiting for you. Our room was small but cozy, and we liked that. Had breakfast in the room, morning sun shining in our windows. You cannot get any closer to the rim than this. The view is amazing. The restaurant is certainly grand, we were pleasantly surprised to... More
