Fodor's Review

Famed architect Mary Jane Colter designed this 1935 log-and-stone structure, which sits within a few yards of the canyon rim and blends superbly with the canyon walls. Its location is similar to El Tovar but for about half the price. Accommodations are in surprisingly attractive motel-style rooms or cabins. Lodge rooms don't have TVs, and some rooms share a bath. Scattered among the pines are 50 cabins, which do have TVs and private baths; some have fireplaces, and a few have virtually unobstructed canyon views. Expect rustic, historic charm but not luxury. The Bright Angel Dining Room serves casual, affordable meals all day and the Arizona Room serves dinner only. Adding to the experience are an ice-cream parlor, gift shop, and small history museum.
