Travelers' Choice
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.

Spent two nights here after riding the train up from Williams. The railroad dropped off our luggage and it was in our room when we arrived. We were able to check in early since our cabin was ready. The staff was always polite and helpful even if some of them were a little cranky. Some of the covid restrictions are bothersome but I believe they are trying to stay open and prevent spreading the virus at the same time. This is the second time we have stayed here and will definitely stay again.

We stayed in a cabin that had only one chair, no end table to rest your cup or glass on, no microwave, one luggage rack, no desk area and the only ice machine was in a different building. We are warm and dry, the bed is comfortable, but we are not impressed.

Loved our rim cabin - small, but cozy and comfortable, and simply can't beat the location. In addition to having a great view, by staying inside the park you get to beat the long line of cars waiting at the National Park entrance. A little disappointed that they removed coffee pots from the rooms due to COVID, not sure why they can't clean those just like everything else - and if they must keep them out, then coffee in the main lobby really should be free to guests (it wasn't). But that was a minor annoyance, overall I enjoyed the feel of this place, found it to be an excellent value for the money (not sure if we had off-season rates but we paid in the low $200's and would have expected it to be much higher for this location), and again, the location is a big advantage. Definitely recommend.

We stayed at Bright Angel Lodge in the Bucky Lodge. We originally wanted a cabin, but learned that for three of us to stay in a room, we had to get a lodge room. We arrived super early and figured our room wasn't ready, but we were delighted when the staff (well distanced and masked) had our room available at 12:30pm. The room was perfect. There is one door that exits to the exterior of the building and one door that led to an interior hallway. Given COVID, we only used the exterior door. Parking during the day was a little dicey, but once we had a spot, it was very easy to bring our stuff inside. The room was tight with a queen and a twin, but it was cozy. The closet had plenty of room for us to store our stuff. We had a nice fridge. The shower was tricky (too hot, and then too cold), so we wound up taking baths in the clawfoot tub where we could better mediate the temperature. The only problem was the weather stripping around the door wasn't great, so when the temperature dropped to 20 at night, you could definitely feel the draft around the door. But for $112/night right on the rim, it was great.

This one is a check on our bucket list on this roadtrip. It’s money well spent. Of course you’ll need a vehicle inside and pay 35 for park fees that’s good for a week I believe. Staying here was a great feeling of nature around you . With COVID I feel the cottages are cleaned . There was toiletries. And beddings was great . Just enough room for couples. We arrived late at night and was so dark the lady at the front desk gave us the map and instructions to get to our cottage. Check out was easy . We were able to park the car and walk around
