Great hotel and of course perfect location!! Super clean bathrooms. A few things to know own before you book. The a/c units are old and it takes them a while to get down to 72. If you like your room very cold I could see some not liking. It could havw been cooler but was suffienct for us. Only complaint... More

We stayed here for 2 nights this week and let me just say it was not worth the $250 per night. The air conditioner was ancient and didn't cool at night - neither did our friends who stayed across the hall, so I'm wondering if any of them worked. Needless to say we didn't sleep well because it was hot.... More

Stayed one night in a room with a noisy air conditioner that didn't work. When I went to report to the desk agent, he gave me some nonsense answer about it not working unless we were in the room. Said there was a motion detector that would only allow the AC to work if we were physically in the room.... More

We stayed in the Zane Grey Suite at El Tovar in the Grand Canyon. Suite is very spacious and has a separate sitting room with a second TV, fridge and collection of Zane Grey books. It comfortably fit a rollaway for our son. We had a party of 5 and did not feel cramped at all. Hotel is well preserved... More

Our family of six stayed one night in this amazing historical hotel. It was filled with so much history and "oldness" as my young daughter said. In a good way! We loved breakfast overlooking the canyon, the early morning sunrise walk on the trail, steps from the hotel, and the majesty of literally being ON THE GRAND CANYON. It's truly... More

Great location but no lifts and we were on the second floor! Room small but clean. Air conditioning wasn't working but was eventually fixed though it was very noisy so we had to turn it off to sleep. Reasonable bar. Didn't try the restaurant

First of all it is really located on the nice spot, you walk out the hotel and a few meters and see right into the canyon. The hotel is nice, clean bathrooms and beds are comfortable, but we paid more than 350 in the end for 1 night (3 people in a room). We stayed in many nice places around... More

My wife and I recently spent 2 nights at the El Tovar Hotel at the South Rim in the Grand Canyon National Park. I had originally booked at another lodge inside the park about a mile away but quickly changed plans when I discovered a room available here. The El Tovar is as close to the rim of the Canyon...

This is the best place to eat in the village. We had the quail and a salad for an appetizer. You do have to make a reservation in advance. We stayed 3 nights at the Grand Canyon and after a long day of hiking this was a satisfying meal. It's kind of weird how they show you the deserts when... More

This is not a luxury hotel in the sense of 4/5 star city hotels so if you think it is, you will be disappointed. However we loved it and knew it was a historic old hotel, full of atmosphere, old world charm and lovely staff. The only wee grumble with all the hotels etc there, is they need to make... More
