Over El Tovar
Het klassieke El Tovar ligt centraal in Grand Canyon Village, aan de zuidrand van de Grand Canyon. Het hotel werd in 1905 gebouwd en staat nu met recht geregistreerd als nationaal monument. Vandaag de dag heeft El Tovar niets aan haar elegante charme ingeboet. De sfeervolle standaard kamers hebben airco en een badkamer. Ook beschikt het hotel over een fine dining restaurant en een knusse lounge. Maar bovenal levert het natuurlijk de Grand Canyon binnen handbereik!

Gelegen aan de rand van de Grand Canyon.
Een van de bekendste Nationale Parken in Amerika is de Grand Canyon in de staat Arizona. Het wordt beschouwd als een van de zeven natuurlijke wereldwonderen. In de loop van miljoenen jaren heeft het water van de Colorado River deze kloof in de bodem ingeslepen. Het Nationale Park wordt in twee helften verdeeld (North Rim en South Rim), die hemelsbreed maar 16 kilometer van elkaar zijn verwijderd, echter als u met de auto van de noordzijde naar de zuidzijde wilt rijden, moet u een afstand van ruim 300 kilometer afleggen!
"NOT A MUST STAY BUT RESTAURANTS ARE EXCELLENT"
I don't think this hotel would have much business if it weren't for its history and location. The hotel is very busy and the staff is either harried or indifferent. The rooms are well appointed but much of the public area is past "well worn". The lobby and mezzanine are must sees but staying at the hotel is not required for that. Parking is a real problem which makes the logistics of seeing the park more difficult than it should be. It took 8 hours and 3 requests to get a non flushing toilet repaired. We enjoyed the dining room and the bar and thought that the quality was excellent and the prices fair for the food and setting. The lack of preference for hotel guests in getting reservations in the dining room is just another reason why it isn't necessary to stay here. We were told that dinner reservations are made 6 to 12 months in advance. El Tovar is an integral part of the park experience and visiting the hotel and using its dining room and lounge/bar are sufficient for that part of the experience.
I came to the Canyon via a tour. My company arranged the room. I think I had the best accommodations possible in the canyon. Thank you, El Tovar for making my trip comfortable and making me feel welcome.
"Great location, overpriced room"
Stayed here for one night. Front desk was cordial and helpful on arrival. Lobby was PACKED with day visitors, thankfully it calmed down later in the evening. Had some difficulty finding a parking spot, ended up parking about a mile away and walking back to the hotel. Had a drink in the bar, they would not serve my 21 year old son because his CA drivers license was in the "old format". Huh??? Room had a view of the parking lot, with employees talking and smoking outside below our window. Delivery trucks arrived early AM and woke us up. Small bed, ok size room, nice bathroom. Fabulously close and convenient to the view of the canyon, which is why we stayed there. Planned to watch the sunrise over the canyon but the temperature dropped to 18 degrees so we passed! It gets very cold as soon as the sun goes down so plan for that! Had a wonderful dinner and fabulous breakfast at the restaurant. Excellent service at dinner, kind of a grumpy Gus served us at breakfast. But the food was delicious! I would stay again but be much more selective about the room I get.
First of all we did not stay overnight but visited the hotel and enjoyed cocktails in the bar. The hotel lobby is so rustic and timeless such that it gave us a sense what it might have been when Teddy Roosevelt visited in the early 1900's. The bar offered a welcome respite just off the Rim Trail. The service was good, cocktails refreshing and appetizers tasty. It has an outside porch where you can enjoy views of the Canyon. Strongly recommend.
The El Tovar hotel has a proud history and retains much of its atmosphere and appearance, it is very dark inside and decorated with animal heads, but despite this is welcoming and comfortable. The food in the restaurant is excellent but book your table as early as possible, weeks before your arrival, as the best times are booked up very quickly. Rooms are fine, generally big enough and with good chairs and excellent beds.bthe worst aspect of the hotel is noisy extractor fans and air conditioning units just outside your windows. If this noise doesn't bother you will be fine, if it does ask well in advance for a quiet room and make your request as strongly as you can. We heard from another guest that the hotel is soon to undergo renovation, let's hope these noisy units are due for replacement.
