Fodor's Expert Review View Hotel

Monument Valley Rd., off U.S. 163 just north of AZ/UT border, 24 miles north of Kayenta, Monument Valley Navajo Tribal Park, Arizona, 84536, USA Fodor's Choice

The Navajo tribe operates this sleek red-stucco hotel, the only lodging inside Monument Valley Navajo Tribal Park and one of the most spectacularly situated hotels in the Southwest, with astounding vistas that help the hotel live up to its name. Nearly all the rooms face east toward the iconic Mittens and Totem Pole formations, and all have private balconies, flat-screen TVs, tile floors, and brightly hued Navajo bedspreads. You can read or relax in a cavernous lobby with tall windows, leather chairs, and hand-carved furnishings, or work out in a small gym looking toward Mitchell Butte. Continental breakfast in the adjacent restaurant is complimentary mid-January through March, and available for a reasonable fee the rest of the year.
