it depends whether you are on the north or south rim--the south is teh most popular/crowded---the lodging right at the rim is convenient, if nothing special--the other option is outside the park--the main restaurant at the ldoge is ok--sightweeing is done via van mostly, where you can be dropped off at various stops

Hi Denise...I stayed at El Tovar Hotel on the southern rim...I had a clean, but spartan furnished room that was located in the hallway to the left of the reception area...it faced the front...I'm sure there are rooms facing the canyon that are more suitably decorated...I paid $100.00 per night in 1998...the restaurant in the El Tovar left alot to be desired...I had a table by the canyon at sunset and that was beautiful...a few steps up there is a more casual restaurant to eat in along with a souvenir shop selling the usual tee shirts, etc....the town outside the park has many chain motels and restaurants...as the previous poster mentioned you can hop on and off a shuttle bus to various lookouts along the south rim...there's an enclosed viewing area with floor to ceiling windows that was spectacular...it was good for me because of the height thing...you will be amazed at the number of people who ignore the signs depicting people falling over and wander dangerously to the edge...the last time I was there it was summer and I had a chance to see a traveling troupe of Indian dancers who performed outside the adobe building gift shop...they represented many generations of a family and it was great...prices for food are a much higher in the Grand Canyon area than in many other tourist areas because of its location such as places like McDonald's, although yes I know, McDonald prices differ everywhere.

We stayed in wonderful cabins just steps from the South Rim for only $75/night just 2 yrs ago (in Feb). It was fantastic.

Ultra nice, sits in Tusayan, about 10 miles south of the canyon rim itself. Lots of restaurants nearby, cinemax theater, helicopter pads, etc. It's outside Grand Canyon National Park.
