7 Grand Canyon South Rim Hotels - How to Choose
Personalized guide to help you decide where to lay your head from historic lodges to modern motels inside the national park
To have the ultimate Grand Canyon vacation experience spend at least one night inside the national park at one of seven lodges/hotels on the South or North Rim, or one at the bottom of the canyon.
If you want to spend your nights on the South Rim inside Grand Canyon National Park, choose from six different lodging experiences, including the historic El Tovar Hotel, Bright Angel Lodge & Cabins, Kachina Lodge, Thunderbird Lodge, Maswik Lodge or Yavapai Lodge. Each one offers different services and experiences, but the same reservation rule applies to all. Book your room months in advance. Reservations open 13 months in advance and for some places, rooms can sell out in the first month of booking.
