Bryce Canyon is een nationaal park in het zuidwesten van de Amerikaanse staat Utah en is beroemd om zijn unieke geologische rotsformaties, hoodoo's. De afgesleten toppen zorgen voor prachtige formaties die in het zonlicht erg mysterieus lijken. De zon zorgt voor prachtige kleurschakeringen van de rotsen. Deze variëren van roze naar oranje.
"We had a Grand Vacation!"
We stayed at this hotel for 2 nights while visiting Bryce Canyon because we wanted to be close by the park entrance. I think the same company "Ruby's Inn" owns all the services there at Bryce City so there is not a lot of competition. Lodging includes an RV park/campground, Bryce View Lodge, Best Western Ruby's Inn and this hotel - Best Western Bryce Canyon Grand. Be careful reading reviews, because it looks like some reviewers are mixing the hotels up. Of those choices, the Grand Hotel appears to be the nicest/newest or most luxurious choice, so it's probably also the most expensive. It did cost more than other hotels not located next to a National Park, but we have stayed at other hotels and lodges both inside and adjacent to National Parks and the rate for this hotel was not out of line in comparison. Overall, we were quite satisfied with the stay and enjoyed our visit. There is a shuttle that stops on the main road at Ruby's Inn and goes into the park to the lodge, visitor center and the most popular viewpoints (but note that shuttles do not go any further south than Bryce/Paria points). There's also a paved bike path that goes from the hotels into the park (rentals available), or you can book a horseback ride or ATV tour. The quality of our "grand" room was similar to Hampton Inn by Hilton; we had a comfortable king bed, writing desk, easy chair with ottoman, side tables with lamps, refrigerator and microwave, and plenty of outlets to charge our camera and cell batteries. The bathroom had 2 sink basins which sped up our preparation time in the mornings. We had asked for a wheelchair-accessible ADA room and were assigned #3143, which had a tub with grab-bars and a hand-held shower sprayer. We requested a seat for the tub and were promptly delivered a small plastic stool with no back. I asked for something sturdier but was told that is all they have. Unfortunately, it's too small and unstable for someone who cannot stand and needs to slide onto it - I lost my balance, tipped and hit my head. I discussed the incident with the desk staff upon check-out and recommended that they obtain a shower transfer bench with an arm and back which would be much more stable, safer, usable by all their guests, and still costs $100 or less. The young woman did not seem very interested or concerned, however. Room 3143 had a couple of noise issues: the HVAC unit was loud when it cycled on, and the room is across from the elevators, so we could hear people talking in the hallway while they waited for the elevator cars, and the clunk-clunk of their luggage wheels as they rolled on and off. The included breakfast was fine; we did not have to wait in line (at 6am) to be seated and they had a good assortment of foods, including healthy items like oatmeal, fruit and yogurt. The dining area was busy with the bus tour groups that were preparing to depart, but staff was staying on top of it and kept the tables cleared and buffet stocked. Other amenities included an attractive sitting area in the lobby, a small shop of snacks and necessities, a small fitness room, an outdoor pool, computers for guest use, and a large coin-op laundry room. Be aware that there are not a lot of places to eat in the area, and I think this hotel only serves breakfast. Across the parking area on the other side of the Bryce View Lodge there's Ebenezer's Barn & Grill, which is a cowboy dinner show with music (evenings-tickets/reservations required). Ruby's Inn (down the hill and across the road, walking distance for most) has a restaurant, a fast food place next door, and a small grocery (caution: we paid almost $30 for 4 cups of yogurt and 1.5 lbs. of fruit). There's a Subway a mile up the road at the junction with UT12, and the Lodge inside the park also has a restaurant (may need a reservation for dinner). We ate lunch at the park lodge and were satisfied with the food and prices. There is a Sinclair fuel station with a garage and car wash near the hotel. TIP: If you want souvenirs, items inside the park at the lodge gift shop or visitor center may be more reasonable than the store at Ruby's Inn.
"Never stayed here but charged for a night"
I attempted to make a reservation at the Bryce Canyon BW but the system knocked me out. I never received a confirmation, so I didn't know a reservation had been made. Then my plans changed and I never followed up to try to make the reservation again. They never sent me one of those reminders or an email about checking in on-line the day before. When I got a charge on my credit card for one night's stay, I called the hotel. At first, they couldn't find my reservation, but then they located it. They couldn't explain what happened or why I didn't receive a confirmation or any of the above reminders, but they refused to issue me a refund. I have written to corporate HQ and asked for a refund but have not received a response to date. It appears their system failed and I am on the hook for $213.
"Worst & Noisiest Room on our 2-Week Vaca"
The good: location and spacious room. The bad: I hope I don't run out of space listing all the negatives. 1) noisy rooms. We had to call the front desk because we could hear the people in the room next to ours 2) every time someone would open up their door or shut the door you could hear it. 3) people walking down the halls could be heard clearly in our room 4) there wasn't even a sheet of paper or a pen to write with in our room 5) The food at breakfast was horrible. The muffins and biscuits were so bad I tried to use the microwave to soften them but the microwave wouldn't even work. The eggs were robbery. 6) At checkout I tried to express my concerns with the front desk but they weren't concerned. That did it for me. It used to be that you knew you could count on Best Western for a good room and a good value, but I guess that isn't their philosophy anymore.
"Use points when making reservation"
This hotel is modern and in the right place. However, they will not let you use your BW rewards points unless it is done when making the reservation. Also they cater to bus loads so the breakfast area is very crowded at times, Staff works hard to get dining area ready for next group.
"Good choice for Bryce Canyon"
Unlike Zion or Arches or Canyonlands national parks, Bryce Canyon doesn't have an established town near its entrance which means that accommodation options outside the park are few. The Best Western Plus is a comfortable (seemingly brand new) and spotlessly clean hotel a few minutes drive from the park entrance with a heated pool. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Note that this hotel clearly caters to large groups and in the morning the breakfast area gets completely jammed. The hotel doesn't have a bar or restaurant, and options in the 'town' of Bryce Canyon are limited (especially for alcohol). The floors of the hotel are also flimsy- the person upstairs from us kept clumping around in the night and made it difficult to sleep. The room rate was higher than we expected, but given the limited options in Bryce Canyon and having travelled through the other national parks in Utah and witnessed that September is a very busy month, it was fair.
