The hotel was attractive and our room was satisfactory. Did not enjoy the breakfast buffet which we attended only once. The food was simply cold. The hotel personnel were all very pleasant. I felt sorry for the entertainer in the dining room. The room was practically empty so he did not seem to attract an audience.

The lobby and eating areas are very nice and pretty.
The gift shop has nice gifts.
Our room was comfortable and quite mostly. Doors closing were loud.
Funny but our room had a crack over the AC unit where a heavy mirror must have fallen on it and left that crack in the wall.
Got to have fresh cool air.. lol
Close to things we needed.

Hotel was super close to the south entrance and reasonably priced. Also the fridge and microwave in the room was a plus. A general store is close by. Only things I disliked were the small dining area. People were lining up constantly and we were lucky to get a seat. Also people were slamming doors throughout the whole night and we have been awake since 3am due to this.

We stayed at the El Tovar because of its location and history and were not disappointed. Within a few yards of the rim (not right on) so basically you walk out the front door a few steps and you are on the Rim Trail. Our room had a peek-a-boo view of the Canyon so it was nice. If you want a full on view with balcony then I believe the 4 suites are your only option. We love staying in historic places and know that this sometimes comes without all the modern conveniences and that was the case here. Other than the bellman and our cocktail waitress most staff were on autopilot and really didn't seem to care much about customer comfort/satisfaction. Power went out just before our dinner reservations on the first night. And they closed the kitchen along with any food options. Which considering the remote location and time was not out of the ordinary. However it is very strange that there are no back up generators. With todays ADA requirements one would think this would be a necessity for guests reliant on power or need to eat regularly. We were told no when we asked for a 30 minute extension on the 11AM check out time because we were waiting to be seated for breakfast (book all dining in advance and still expect a wait). When we did leave our room a little after 11 there were no housekeeping carts in sight on our floor. There is no designated parking for hotel guests, so good luck the area is very crowded. Glad we stayed once, would not return to stay at the El Tovar.

I use a mobility scooter and was concerned about access. No worry. Reservations gave us a ground floor room with lovely view over the canyon. The gentleman who helped assemble my scooter at parking area and get luggage to our room was one of the nicest, most helpful I've encountered. Beds were so high he even found me a sturdy step stool.
