We stayed at the Grand Canyon Railway Hotel in mid-September. The staff was awesome and the hotel is quite nice. We also took the Grand Canyon Railway (Parlour Car) and stayed one night at the Canyon. The only negative was Maswik Lodge (which was included in the package). The room at Maswik was rustic, but fine. However, the sheets, bedspread and towels were gross! I slept in my clothes. Although the deer in the early morning (6 am) surrounded the property and they were quite a sight to see, particularly the babies. Don't understand why such a lovely place like the Grand Canyon Railway Hotel would only offer the option of Maswik at the South Rim of the Canyon. The Grand Canyon Railway Hotel was spotless and our room was lovely. We requested to be near the main lodge and were granted that request. Would definitely go back. Also, if you need taxi transportation, look up White Dove. They drove us from Flagstaff to Sedona and back to Williams. They are a family owned business and it shows. Food at the Depot was not as bad as I expected. Cafeteria style, but totally o.k. We felt the package was well worth it.
