The room was exceptionally nice, spacious, quiet, beautifully decorated. The grounds were nice with the railroad gift shop right outside. The staff was very friendly and there is a huge fireplace going in the cool evenings.

We stayed here on a trip to the Grand Canyon even though we were not taking the train, and we are glad we did. The staff was friendly, the location convenient, and the rooms were nice and clean. The lobby and bar areas are very nice, with a fireplace and huge Grand Canyon paintings. The indoor swimming pool was also... More

My daughter and I stayed in Williams while we visited the Grand Canyon (It's close to an hour away from the South Rim). The lobby is decorated very stylishly with a grand staircase and huge stone fireplace, and comfy leather couches. The beds and pillows were very comfortable and bathrooms were spotless. When I made the reservation, I considered one... More

We stayed here for the night before taking the GCR. Our room was beautiful! Clean and recently renovated. The bed was really comfortable and room was spacious! We were surprised to find such a gem in WIlliams.

For visiting the Grand Canyon, Williams was our home for 2 nights. The Grand Canyon Railway Hotel was wonderful, clean, updated, good wifi, very nice rooms. We stayed in a suite to accomodate a family of six at a reasonable price! I highly recommend. We did not take the train to Grand Canyon. We prefer to be on our own... More
