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.

We had 2 rooms for one night (January 26 and 27 2019), then hiked to Phantom Ranch, then checked back in for one more night with two rooms (Jan 30). Our first 2 nights were great, we had rooms 6144 and 6141, adjoining, each with queen beds. The set-up of each was slightly

The hotel was much nicer in the winter weather. Cozy and complete with roaring fireplace. We were pleasantly surprised to have really great free internet in our room. (We had read there was only internet in the Welcome Lodge.) We had a specialty coffee drink in the bar and a

are dogs allowed in the rooms?
"I would look for reviews of specific rooms and request those."
"A cabin closer to the canyon would be nice, but it also comes at a premium."
"Really try to lock in a rim room"
"Cabins on rim are connected like a motel; you'll hear everything going on next door such as loud neighbors or a woman coughing up a lung"
"Ask for a room away from the central ice/bathroom area to try and avoid the noisy ice machine."
$117 - $189 (Based on Average Rates for a Standard Room)
