By far the best part of this hotel is the location! The rim of the Grand Canyon was just steps away from the door. Beauty surrounded us not only in the view of the canyon, but in the abundant wildlife as well. We saw many elk, mule deer, a family of raccoons and a mountain goat all outside our door. Most of our group was up for sunrise each morning. The views were just breathtaking!
The room was clean, although not overly spacious. The bathroom was rather small but served its purpose. This didn't bother us since we were only planning to sleep there and spend the bulk of our time exploring the canyon. A definite plus was the in-room refrigerator where we kept snacks and drinks.
The restaurants and gift shops were typical National Park venues with adequate, but not outstanding food and well stocked gift shops. We actually ventured outside the park for dinner 2 nights in Tusayan, AZ at the Yippee-ei-o Steakhouse. The food and service were outstanding.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would definitely book again at the Thunderbird simply because of the location.
