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.

Great ribs at Arizona Steakhouse outshine spotty service

I highly recommend the barbecued ribs at Arizona Steakhouse, although the service there is spotty. The food at Arizona Steakhouse was better than in the main dining room at Bright Angel, where the food was fine but nothing outstanding, and the atmosphere lackluster to say the least.
