Bright Angel Lodge is open year round. Built in 1935 and located only feet from the canyon rim, this lodge is made up of cabins and lodge rooms generally rustic in nature. Some rooms have a shared bathroom, all are non-smoking, and only cabins have televisions. Two restaurants offer family-style dining (breakfast, lunch and dinner) or Southwestern cuisine (lunch and dinner only). There is a nice fire place near the Bright Angel front desk.

El Tovar Hotel is open year round. A national historic landmark, this full service hotel opened in 1905 and was renovated most recently in 2005. El Tovar is the finest accommodations available on the South Rim, offering a dining room, cable television, full-bath, and room service (limited hours). There are 78 rooms and suites which must be reserved well in advance. All rooms are non-smoking, and many offer a canyon view.

Kachina Lodgeis open year round. Built in the 1960's, this lodge offers family-friendly rooms with in-room coffee, refrigerator, safe, television, telephone, and full bath. Half of the rooms offer partial canyon views.

Maswik Lodge. The north section was renovated during the winter 2006. Larger rooms are great for families. Located about a quarter mile off rim in a wooded area. Both North and South sections are open year round, and cabin rooms open in the summer. All rooms offer full bath.

Thunderbird Lodge is very similar lodge to the Kachina Lodge, with the only major difference being that checkin is at the Bright Angel Lodge.

Yavapai Lodge East section wasrenovated 2012 and offers 198 air-conditioned rooms while the 160 west rooms do not offer air-conditioning. Located about a mile away from the rim in a wooded area, both East and West sections are good for families.

North Rim
Xanterra also takes care of lodging in the North Rim of the Grand Canyon, which is often booked several months or more in advance. The North Rim is more remote and lodging more scarce. The Grand Canyon Lodge, a National Historic Landmark, is located on the North Rim. It has a snack bar and dining room where you can make reservations for a fine meal overlooking the Canyon. There is also a North Rim campground that offers laundry and shower facilities and has a small general store on the premises.
Outside the Park

Grand Canyon lodging just outside this incredible rock formation may also be secured by visitors to Arizona. For travelers exploring the South Rim, lodging is available in nearby Tusayun. Some options include the historical 106 acre West Ranch, Moqui Lodge, and the Red Feather Lodge, which allows pets to stay in the motor lodge area. Flagstaff and Williams are also handy and affordable with lots of rooms to choose from. They're both only a short drive from the Canyon.

Adventurers to the North Rim of the Grand Canyon may stay a few miles outside the Park at Kaibob Lodge and Jacob Lake Inn. These are rustic motels for the most part, but some new construction has been taking place. There are also plentiful accomodations in Kanab, Utah, just a short drive to the North Rim.

The only lodging located beneath the rim is the Phantom Ranch, which may be reached by mule, horseback, hiking or rafting the Colorado River. The Phantom Ranch is situated beside the Bright Angel Creek on the north side of the Colorado River and offers cabins or dormatory-style rooms.

Visitors can purchase refreshments, light meals and miscellaneous sundries at the Phantom Ranch canteen. Like everything else in the Park, dinner at Phantom Ranch requres reservations well before your arrival date. You can make them at Grand Canyon Lodges.
