This remarkable hotel has been hosting visitors at the South Rim of the Grand
Canyon since 1905 and today it still stands proudly as the best accommodation in
the National Park. Constructed with local limestone and pine wood from Oregon,
the architecture of the hotel resembles a Swiss chalet and means that it fits
perfectly into the outstanding beauty of this natural wonder. It is no wonder
that the hotel is now on the prestigious list of National Historic Landmarks.
With immediate access to the viewpoints and hiking trails of the national park
there is plenty to keep guests occupied by day. In the evening head to the
renowned El Tovar Dining Room where previous diners including Bill Clinton,
Theodore Roosevelt and Paul McCartney have all enjoyed the elegant setting.
Given the age of the hotel, no two rooms are exactly the same but all are
comfortable and cosy – all you need after a long day exploring the Grand Canyon.
