Stayed here the night before taking the Grand Canyon Railway the next morning to the canyon. It's not luxurious, but we weren't expecting that. It's quite a large hotel and there is a fair amount of walking to find the lobby. It can be like a maze to find your way there, so if you aren't up for the walk, ask for a room close to the lobby. The staff are all very friendly and knowledgeable. They were very nice about letting us have a rollaway in our room because we needed a place for our restless daughter. We encountered a problem with the shower in the morning because the room had just been updated and the hot water in the shower did not work. Needless to say, I took a cold shower the next morning, not fun. They did send someone right away to fix it, but we had to catch the train and it would have taken too long, so no one else showered. However, they did knock $50 off the bill and gave us the rollaway without charging us. This hotel is totally adequate for your overnight stay to catch the train. They do a great buffet breakfast the next morning and a cowboy show before you catch the train. The show is very corny, and could be skipped unless you have young children who would likely enjoy it the most. Overall, a good deal. Get the package which includes the train tickets.
