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!
"My Stay at the Historic EL Tovar"
One must keep in mind when staying at the EL Tovar, that you are staying there in order to say "You stayed at the Historic El Tovar". I wanted to experience the hotel, and now that I have, I will move on to another location on my next visit to the Grand Canyon. The rooms in the hotel are for one, extremely overpriced for what they are. My deluxe king room, was nothing special. While it had a small refrigerator, there was no microwave. The combination heater/air conditioner kicked on and off constantly. It may kick on for 15 to 20 seconds than off for a few minutes than back on for a short period. This was a constant irritant during my two night stay. This first floor room was also very noisy, one could hear conversations through the thin wall of the adjoining room and the foot steps of those staying in the room above. I had to remind myself not to be too critical of the room, but rather keep in mind the "history" of the place. As far as the on site restaurant, again, extremely overpriced for the quality of the food. For the price, I was very disappointed. Historic hotel or not, there is no excuse for not making your experience of eating there a memorable one. If you desire is to stay at the El Tovar to be able to say "you have stayed at the Historic El Tovar", as was the reason for my stay. Then be content with that. Otherwise, far less expensive and higher quality accommodations are available for your stay at the Canyon.
"Very Close to Rim"
The El Tovar is a lovely hotel that is so close to the Grand Canyon. We arrived early and were greeted nicely and checked in early, but told our room not ready. Returned at 3.40pm and told your room still not ready. No apology judt try again at four! We are so used to UK ways where they bend over backwards to get you in your room and are sorry if they cannot. Anyway we went to the lovely cocktail bar, had fan beers whilst looking at the Grand Canyon. The room was lovely, small but nicely decorated. However my husband tried the bed and was not happy with mattress so had to turn it over. First night in the restaurant we had one of the worst meals ever, luke warm gloopy soup, freezing cold caesar salad, awful bread, chicken wurh mushroom and sherry sauce was so disgusting. Food really was retro. However the next evening, yes we went back because so freezing outside did not want to walk elsewhere, we had superb food, stuffed quails so well cooked and delicious pork chops. We also had superb red wine. Staff were so good. We did love the olde worlde feel of the hotel
"Mmmmm Great Meal"
We only stayed the one night in this area...well worth the vist The canyons are splendiforous at the sunset. Great photo opportunities And the meal was fantastic....I would bring more friends there to visit and to sit, relax and enjoy a nice wine with that fantastic meal...must say that the waiters were excellent!!
"great location but"
we visited grand canyon park in late october 2016. el tovar hotel was recommended by friends. we made the reservation in march 2016. we were only able to get the most basic room. when we arrived that afternoon, our room was not ready. the check in time is 4pm. we got a room right at 4pm. the hotel is old. the lobby and restaurant are fairly pleasant. our room was tiny. it was refurbished but one cant make a tiny room bigger. our air condition quit working the night before our departure. a gentleman from the heat and air department came to fix it that evening. unfortunately, it still did not work during the night and we were uncomfortably warm and woke up many times throughout the night. i mentioned this when we checked out. the lady told me she was sorry but no gesture was made to adjust our bill. essentially we paid a lot of money for a room that we werent able to sleep. the hall way carpet was pathetic. it was old and badly stained. we ate at the dining room for breakfast and that was decent. we chose not to eat lunch and dinner there due to the high pricing for their food. with all that being said, this hotel has grand canyon in its back yard and you cant beat that. there were many tourists during the day in the area. if you get out there early in the morning, it is very peaceful and you get to see the sunrise. i imagine people who stay in this hotel do so for this reason.
When travelling to the Grand Canyon don't hesitate and reserve well in-time in El Tovar. There is no better place to stay at the Grand Canyon than this hotel. Don't expect to find the latest modern and stylish features but if that would be the case why come to see nature at its best. This hotel offers comfort in a historic way. We had reserved a suite six months in advance and found all the comfort we needed at 50 meters from the Grand Canyon rim. Excellent for Sunrise and Sunset experiences. Good breakfast too. Parking could be better organised i.e. for exclusive use for hotel guests but with little bit of patience we never had a problem finding a parking spot. Reception as well as check-out were great with excellent bell boy service to transport our luggage to and from the top floor.
