Best Western Plus Bryce Canyon Grand Hotel
Ranked #1 of 6 Hotels in Bryce
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed October 28, 2012

As noted, your choices while visiting the Bryce area are limited. We chose this hotel because it seemed to be the best hotel in town, and overall we were happy with our selection.

The hotel has two wings, each with four stories. A lobby, breakfast room, pool, and spa are in the middle. The rooms are very spacious with a good desk area, lounge chair, and a large closet. There is also good drawer space, a microwave, and a decent sized refrigerator. The room was in good shape, but a little on the bland side in part because the overall color palette was brown. The bathroom had two sinks in a large area, while a shower/tub combination in the water closet area was a little tight. The one issue with our room was that it had a connecting door to the neighboring room. Our neighbors were not loud but you could still hear a fair amount of noise and you could pick up a little on their conversations if you wanted. The map of the hotel given to us at check showed that a lot of rooms in the hotel are connecting, but try to get one that is not if you don’t need it. It was also easy to hear hallway noise. It should also be noted that the when the door to the room is opened, a view into the bathroom is provided to the hallway. You may need to be careful when opening this door.

The large breakfast buffet was very good with a wide selection of items to choose from including really good sausages. The room setting was a big open area with a vague rustic look overlooking the pool area. The lighting was dim which gave the room a somewhat depressing feel to it, especially before sunrise. The lobby, however, had a large stone fireplace, better lighting and a true comfortable rustic look. It is really the only area to hang out in if you do not want to be in your room.

Other areas of the hotel included a decent sized pool and hot tub in a center courtyard. There was also a gym which provided basic workout needs at best, but it was nice to have the option available. There was a large channel selection on the TV and good free internet if you need help passing time before bed.

The location of the hotel makes for easy access to the park, just a five minute drive up the road. The hotel itself is surrounded by parking areas, and while there are some nice distant views, most rooms have uninspiring views. The food choices are limited as many people have said, but they are perfectly fine and most guests will only be in the area for a few days at most.

Finally, but important, the staff was friendly and helpful. It all combines to create a comfortable environment to stay while enjoying the amazing natural beauty in the area.

Room Tip: Try to get a non connecting room - if that works for your needs.

A very professionally run facility! This is a very large venue. There were always three people to greet customers at the front desk, so there was very little or no wait. The front desk people had great information to dispense to the Park visitors, and good restaurant recommendations. Check in and out was easy and quick.
The rooms are really huge! The beds are excellent, and the decorations of the rooms, while very commercial, are pleasing. The walls are thick. Never heard anyone above, below, or next to our room.
The breakfast, included, is in a large room and provides all sorts of choices. Eggs, pancakes, waffles, fruit, yogurt, breads, muffins...etc, etc.
It was a very short drive to the Park entrance. There is hugely abundant parking available.
In Oct., there were throngs of people staying here!
The heated pool, not used by us, attracted the teenagers and kids in the evening. At 9PM there was too much shouting and screaming to allow me to get to sleep. I complained to the front desk, and the noise stopped in a few minutes!
This is an excellent choice while visiting the gorgeous Bryce Canyon Nat'l Park. And my expedia price was only $98/night!

Rooms excellent and clean with penty of parking and a nice swimming pool, all near to the centre and the free bus to the canyon. But no restaurant and very limited alternatives locally for eating. The breakfast provided by the hotel was very basic and like a poorly run canteen!
The quality of the hotel building badly let down by the lack of staff service provided. Bryce canyon itself is fantastic!

Nice looking property and the lobby is probably one of the nicest BWs I've ever seen. It's tucked away from the street so road noise isn't an issue - but it would be drowned out by the usual motel type AC/Heater unit anyway. I seem to have a particular sensitivity to that sound - doesn't seem to bother my wife much...but she didn't sleep well and that might explain it. Location convenience is great - probably your best choice outside the park...well, given what they charge inside the park, maybe your only choice given the reviews for the other establishments outside the park.

You can see the difference between a PLUS and the usual BW. But let's not start acting as if a PLUS is a higher end hotel - it's just a gussied up BW so some of the negative comments by other reviewers seem a little harsh given what this property is. Having stayed here though, I can understand some of their criticism.

They offer a good size breakfast buffet but the offerings don't look so appetizing...just your standard fare for a PLUS except they had grapefruit segments. BW PLUS Abby Inn in St. George throws in a couple of "surprise" offerings - as in you are surprised to see it offered but nothing like that here. The gravy for the biscuits was way too pepperly.

Service by the staff at the hotel was good - check-in/out was efficient. No problem getting late check-out granted.

The room: One of the nice things about a BW PLUS is the padding under the carpet. After a long day on your feet, I appreciate the softness rather than what feels like carpet directly on concrete. Room has mini fridge and microwave. One attempt at being good is that they have an extension cord with multiple outlets attached to the nightstand. Nice being able to plug things in next to the bed. Unfortunately, it didn't work. I plugged my phone charger into it and nothing happened so I moved the outlet it was plugged into and it still didn't work. Plugged charger directly into same outlet and it worked. Unplugged extension so I could plug in the lamp (that was plugged into the extension) and the lamp worked (it wouldn't turn on before). Another lamp in the room wasn't plugged into an outlet so I had to plug it in. Well, I had a runny nose and I discover that the tissue container only has a few tissues before emptying.

If things worked the way they should have, given the lack of competition in the area and close proximity to the park, don't understand why people think this place is overpriced. It is fairly priced. If you stayed an hour or more away, you would pay a lower price but there is a cost to everything...I'd rather stay close to the main attraction. The buffet is definitely better than what you get at the standard level BW and its ilk but nothing says - check me out, I might taste good!

The execution fell short so I can't give it any better than average and my wife would probably knock off one more to make it poor.

What an amazing hotel! Brand new (3 years); guest rooms are spacious, extremely clean, well appointed, internet fast, check in friendly and ready and the breakfast is a buffet that other hotels would easily charge $10 or more for. Especially loved the towel animals in our room; every featured guest bathrobes. Much more than I would have ever expected from a Best western & I spend approximately 100 nights per year in hotels! Plus -- it is in an amazing location; so close to Bryce Canyon.

We stayed there for 2 nights during the week while hiking at Bryce Canyon and it was very nice and peaceful. The staff was very helpful and the room was big and clean. The breakfast buffet was a great way to start your day. If your in the area this is the place to stay.

Hotel was ok, Bryce was amazing! You really pay a lot for the location. Bathroom was a little dirty around the bottom outside of the tub, room hadn't been vacuumed, etc. Breakfast was gross, but I am picky. I don't care for the buffet style scrambled eggs and processed everything that most hotels have.... if you are into that, there is a big spread. Overall, it was just average and expensive.
