Bright Angel Lodge, designed in 1935 by famed Southwest architect Mary E.J. Colter, has a natural rustic character and is a Registered National Historic Landmark. This iconic lodge and its surrounding cabins are rich with cultural history. Under the direction of the Santa Fe Railroad, Colter was tasked to design a fresh look for Bright Angel Lodge in an effort to provide more moderately priced lodging in contrast to El Tovar “up the hill.” She drew inspirations from many local sources in her architecture. Today, the Bright Angel Lodge and surrounding cabins serves as an iconic remembrance of its colorful past. Located at the top of Bright Angel Trail Head, the facility sees visitors from all around the world. Bright Angel Lodge also features The Harvey House Café, a family-friendly restaurant serving diner classics prepared in the Fred Harvey tradition from biscuits & gravy to gourmet burgers and fajitas. The Harvey House is open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.

Rim cabin 6152 - Amazing. 4th time visiting grand canyon and second time staying at Bright Angel Lodge, and exciting a visit as ever. Wouldnt target anywhere else. A rim cabin, with partial view is worth the extra, and whilst the room was basic it was comfortable and clean - But you arent there for the room. Book early and book to stay in park whatever you can get, meaning you can walk the few feet to the rim to enjoy sunset and sunrise with no hassle. Keep checking back for cancellations, if rim side cabin initially unavailable. The relaxed cancellation policy means they can regularly become available. We did this and got the cabin only a few weeks out, cancelling our other room. On our visit we did the annual week long June stargazing festival, and absolutely loved it. The dates are up for years in advance and strongly recommend trying to align. Very easy to ride shuttle to visitor centre, watch presentation and spend a couple of hours at telescopes before shuttle back.

We stayed in the historic cabin. It was bigger than I thought and offered us good views of the canyon. We had no problem eating breakfast or dinner at the lodge. Shuttle stop is 100 yards away and we saw a good many elk in the mornings.

This is my favorite place to stay when going to The Canyon! It is clean, simple, and right on the rim. The only downside is the restaurant is just ok and the busses seem to all let out there so there are a lot of people milling around at all times

What can you say about The Grand Canyon? it is just so amazing, words fail me. We chose the Lodge as we wanted to stay in the Park itself. It is located right in the centre of the South Rim Village and basically on the rim of the canyon. We had great rooms, nicely decorated with good amenities, and by booking early we got a decent price. We had breakfast and dinner on two days in the restaurant within the lodge. food was pretty good and service also. Bear in mind that breakfast is NOT included in the room price.

We enjoyed the cabin. It was clean, very comfortable bed, nice bathroom and quiet. We were surprised at how quiet it was considering the large crowds of people. We were about 50 ft from the rim and enjoyed walking out to the rim to stargaze and watch the sunrise. Perfect location for catching the buses and easy access to dining. The best part of each day were early mornings and evenings when the crowds were not there. Definitely worth it to stay in the park.
