When it comes to lodging in Grand Canyon National Park, you have superb options. Every lodge in Grand Canyon has the rustic feel you’d expect in a place like this. Many are historic, including the imposing El Tovar Hotel, which is older than the park itself. Then there’s Bright Angel Lodge, with its stacked-stone fireplace that matches the arrangement of the rock layers in the canyon itself. Even visitors who aren’t staying in a Grand Canyon lodge make a pilgrimage to these historic inns.
El Tovar Lodge, Grand Canyon South Rim--Ate at the restaurant: French Onion Soup, the Club Sandwich, Navajo Taco, and Pumpkin Spice Cheesecake with salted caramel pecal swirl. I loved the food, but Matt wasn't impressed by how ordinary the food was, especially for fine dining. And the duck bacon on the sandwich was good, but overpowering and a little weird. I would go back.
