Great location
Great location estimate 30 feet from the rim, we stayed in a newly renovated room that had a view of the canyon, entire grounds inside and out well maintained. Shuttle service to all points of the south rim (all drivers very friendly and knowledgeable) All staff members treat you like family, great on-site gift shops. Excellent value and service at the restaurant. If available cinnamon bun pancakes.

2/10 Poor

Rude unhappy unprofessional staff. They claimed restaurant is not affiliated with hotel so you’re on your own getting reservation. Likewise the employees in the bar and restaurant are even nastier. Hotel is dated and in disrepair. Don’t stay there!

Location
Location says it all. Ridiculous small size of the room for $400!!?? Ate at El Tovar dining room and not impressed by the food! Took 30 minutes just to get a glass of wine from the bar. People in shorts and tshirts in the restaurant. Go dine elsewhere and save your money!

6/10 Good

I dont know if it was just our room or if other rooms experience the same but the air conditioner unit is SO loud it was impossible to sleep with it on or have a conversation in the room. It turned what was to be a pleasant evening to misery.
