Red Feather Lodge El Tovar Grand Canyon National Park Lodges by Xanterra South Rim LLC The lodge, which has been owned and operated by the same family since 1964, is situated within a mile of the southern gates to Grand Canyon National Park. There are 229 well-appointed rooms in the property’s two distinct buildings—a hotel and a motel. Groups can get discounted rates on sight- seeing tours through the lodge’s special combination packages. Bruce Brossman | The company is the primary provider of in-park lodging at the Grand Canyon. Each of its five South Rim properties—El Tovar, Bright Angel Lodge, Kachina Lodge, Thunderbird Lodge and Maswik Lodge— has a distinct feel and puts guests right in the center of the action. The company also manages Phantom Ranch, which is located at the bottom of the canyon. Grand Canyon Plaza Hotel Rich Milliron | The hotel is located one mile from the south entrance of the national park and seven miles from the South Rim. That proximity allows travelers to enjoy a morning hike at the can- yon, a restful afternoon of lounging by the hotel pool, a return trip to catch sunset in the park and an end-of-day drink at the Wagon Wheel Saloon, which just opened in late 2017.

Grand Canyon Railway & Hotel Diane Murdock | Located in Williams, an hour south of the park, this stately hotel offers a range of amenities—luxurious rooms, an indoor saltwater pool, dining at the Grand Depot Café, the on-site Spenser’s Pub and more. The property is closely tied to the Grand Canyon Railway, which offers a morning departure from the adjacent Williams Depot that takes passengers to the South Rim. 35
