Grand Canyon Area Hotels
There are two basic areas for hotels in the Grand Canyon area, there are the hotels and lodges inside the boundaries of Grand Canyon National Park that are all run by the official concessionaire, Xanterra, once known as the Fred Harvey Company. Outside the National Park, in the town of Tusayan, are five hotels. Tusayan is located 1 mile from the national park boundary.
Please be advised that rooms do sell out well in advance for the busy season (May – Oct) but it is possible to get a room even as close as a week in advance due to cancellations and tour rooms that are returned to inventory. Naturally the lowest cost rooms are the first to sell out and are limited in number. The Bright Angel and the El Tovar sell out very quickly and have a limited number of rooms. Most often the cabins have only one bed and some have no bathroom facilities in the room but are located “down the hall”. The town of Tusayan features very nice facilities with a few more amenities such as bowling and game rooms, swimming pools etc. Tusayan features nationally known chain hotels such as Holiday Inn , Best Western, and Quality Inn.
