About Grand Canyon, AZ Hotels
Staying in the Grand Canyon is anything but a rocky experience. The rooms and amenities available within Grand Canyon National Park and nearby towns are a pleasant contrast to the Grand Canyon’s beautiful but harsh terrain. Most have a fascinating history in their own right. Within the park, El Tovar is the grand dame of the five lodges here, and the most luxurious. Rustic Phantom Ranch, at the bottom of the Grand Canyon, is only reached by a 9.5-mile hike or mule ride. In the nearby towns of Flagstaff and Williams, Historic Route 66 flavors the hotels and motels. Cameron, near the Grand Canyon’s east entrance, is steeped in Navajo and Hopi culture and artwork. Grand Canyon Railway Hotel allows you to explore and enjoy the shopping and dining in Williams, then take the historic train 60 miles north to the Grand Canyon.
