What a wonderful, historic hotel. Love the charm of sitting on the front porch in rockers people-watching! Be sure and make dinner reservations in the dining room - great service and delicious food. Good bar, too, with a great outside porch. Wonderfully restored hotel and...More

I don’t think they pick up from hotel- you’ll have to walk to bus stop (near ticketing canter). It’s not a far walk. Right outside of El Tovar are very beautiful views of Canyon. We walked to Angel Bright trail and hiked down a bit (trail is entrance is walking distance from El Tovar). Buses are free and will take you to various viewing areas. In my opinion, a paid tour is better because bus driver stays with you at each stop, explains a bit more, takes pictures for you, and is WAY more friendly that other buses (that take tourists around the rim).
