Our family of four spent two nights in a historic cabin suite. It had a living room area w/ mini fridge and a bedroom w/ 2 queens. While the cabin could be considered to be in the parking lot, it was like all cabins and lodge rooms at Bright Angel, a stones throw to the rim and the beginning of the Bright Angel Trail. It was clean, comfortable and roomy with the living room space. The wall/doors are very thin and you can hear everything in the attached cabin. There was also a locked door linking to the attached cabin, so I guess you could rent that also if you needed more room.
It was really convenient being so close to the trail/rim and not having to drive anywhere to hike/sightsee. Me and my girls (11 & 14) hiked to the 1.5 point (3 miles round trip). It took us under 2 hours. My husband went to the Plateau Point (12 mi round trip) and it took him around 5 hours. We also walked the Rim Trail that went up along the rim with a great view into the canyon and of Bright Angel Trail.
We ate dinner at the Bright Angel Lodge Restaurant the 1st night. It was ok – good service. We had lunch at the Arizona room – also ok. The 2nd night we had pizza at the Maswik Lodge(a super short drive) – pretty good. We made our reservations a year in advance. We went on spring break in April and the weather was perfect in the day; chilly at night. I recommend staying on the rim to experience the Grand Canyon in a short stay.
