Grand Canyon Lodging and Hotel Guide

Grand Canyon Hotels

The Grand Canyon has a wide variety of hotels to choose from and this website has all the information you need to plan your Grand Canyon Vacation.  From the 5 star El Tovar on the South Rim to Phantom Ranch on the canyon floor, there are endless lodging options in and around the park.  Because the Grand Canyon is so spread out and so big, it’s important to do a little research before you book your lodging. Decide what Grand Canyon Destinations you want to visit and what activities you want to do before you reserve your hotel.

The majority of the hotels are located on the South Rim in Grand Canyon Village.  There are also several options in Tusayan, AZ only a few miles from the Park’s South Rim where most visitor spend their vacation.  The North Rim only has one main lodge with several cabins in the Park, and then there is Phantom Ranch, a small lodge located at the bottom of the Grand Canyon only accessible by hiking or mule.  Other Grand Canyon area hotels are located outside of the Park, but many of these are only a short drive to the nearby canyon destinations.  Once you’re set up at your hotel, it's time to explore Grand Canyon National Park. Read the guide below to learn more about Grand Canyon lodging options.
