The Grand Hotel at the Grand Canyon
Why We Love This Hotel
- The Grand Hotel hit No. 1 on U.S. News' 2019 list of Best Hotels in the Grand Canyon
- One of a handful of hotels in the area with an indoor pool and free Wi-Fi in all rooms
- The entrance to the park is just a mile away, and the canyon's South Rim is a short drive from there
For those seeking to explore the Grand Canyon without roughing it, the Grand Hotel offers modern amenities -- like Wi-Fi and Keurig coffee makers in all rooms -- not easily found in the rustic lodges inside the park.
Yes, the Grand Canyon is clearly the prime attraction; however, the Grand Hotel also provides a variety of activities that merit checking out, such as nightly performances in its tavern. There's an indoor pool with an adjoining hot tub, as well as an on-site fitness center. Plus, the hotel's Grand Steakhouse is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
All the rooms were renovated in 2016 and now come equipped with 50-inch HD flat-screen TVs (including HBO's movie channel), microwaves and refrigerators, in addition to massaging shower heads in the bathrooms. Accommodations range from standard Two Queen guest rooms (fits up to four people) to the Grand Suite, which boasts separate living and sleeping areas on top of a private ice maker and wine cooler.
