The Grand Hotel was incredibly close to the Grand Canyon entrance - big bonus for us as we went into the park a few times. The lobby was beautiful in terms of fitting in with the environment without being cheesy. Check-in was seamless and no problems with our rate. Front desk was friendly. The rooms were a nice size for us (2 adults, 1 child) and the beds were surprisingly comfortable. The AC/Heat is a wall unit & since it was in mid-40's during our visit, we only used the heater - it was quiet and didn't disturb TV viewing or sleeping at all. We were facing the street but didn't notice excessive noise. The showers have wall attachments with shampoo, conditioner and body wash. They product wasn't easy to access in terms of opening them (not use) so that made me feel safe to use the product. Some I've seen can be easily opened and it grosses me out thinking someone can mess with the product. A couple items weren't working in our room, but it wasn't an inconvenience so we never reported it until check out. When the front desk found out, they were very apologetic.
We grabbed a quick bite to eat in the saloon - happy hour food was delicious and the portions were a decent size. We returned later that night for a drink and were shocked at how inexpensive the drinks were! From the front desk to saloon to housekeeping, everyone was friendly.
Regarding the rate, I had booked through their website 6 mos before our visit - the mid week rate was insanely low. Be sure to ask them for specials.
Overall, it was a very pleasant visit and we'd return again for sure.
