Grand Canyon Railway Hotel Review

Designed to resemble the train depot's original Fray Marcos lodge, this hotel features attractive Southwestern-style accommodations with large bathrooms and comfy beds with upscale linens. Neoclassical Greek columns flank the grand entrance, which leads to a lobby with maple-wood balustrades, an enormous flagstone fireplace, and oil paintings of the Grand Canyon by local artist Kenneth McKenna. Original bronzes by Frederic Remington also adorn the lobby. Adjacent to the lobby is Spenser's, a pub with an ornate 19th-century hand-carved bar; next door is the Depot Cafe, serving breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Riding the train to the canyon in sleek '50s-era railcars can be a relaxing alternative to the long drive. The hotel also operates an adjacent RV park and a "pet resort" that provides comfy accommodations for dogs and cats.
