Relaxing Spot for Canyon Peeping.

The El Tovar Lounge is a great spot to grab a drink or snack during a pre dinner happy hour. You can grab a wine or drink to carry out to the El Tovar porch to enjoy the sunset. The lounge also has some outdoor seating with nice views of the Canyon and the wildlife that gather around the hotel... read more

What a great place. Reminds me of places my parents took me in the '50's for vacations. Great memories. Please never change or update it. Right outside the door is one of the most amazing sights on earth!

Coming from a bustling city and walking in to a lodge like El Tovar is mood changing. This is what Grand Canyon should feel like. I like the atmosphere of El Tovar. This is worth seeing and stopping by. Just as worth as checking out the canyon. I would have booked a room at El Tovar too if it wasn't... More

The feeling inside is surreal. There are stuffed animal heads mounted on the walls. It's dark inside, so bring a good flash if you are taking pictures. If you're not eating or staying at the lodge, you can relax on a rocking chair at the front porch.

Great restaurant--get a reservation!! $$-$$$ and very kid friendly. Avg dish being $25. Cozy dining room and friendly servers. It would be more worth the money if they included a side salad or cup of soup with a main entree. Otherwise that's another $7+ per person to add one.

The bar is well stocked. The appetizers are inventive, fresh, and delicious. The staff is attentive. Perfect place to refresh after time outside. Views to a beautiful outside plaza and parts of the canyon itself.

Stopped here after walking the rim in the snow and decided to warm up with something warm to drink. The cocktail lounge is located right next to the main dining area and is great for quick meals/snacks/drinks. Yet, who would have guessed it would be $50 for an order of hot cocoa for the kids, coffee for us, and a... More

This is the primo location on the South Rim, and with entrees in the $20 - $35 range, one would expect a high end dining experience. While the service is great and the menu creative, the actual cooking is only fair. I was reduced to ordering two appetizers instead of a main dish after three dinners there. The wine list... More

thought this would be nice to have a drink at as we couldn't get a room to stay at the hotel- for which I am very grateful. Cold chilly no atmosphere and other than the stunning location not much going for it
