When the El Tovar Lodge opened at the end of the railroad line in the early 1900s it was considered one of the most elegant hotels west of the Mississippi. Today El Tovar Lodge is welcoming guests to Grand Canyon National Park with as much care and hospitality as they did 100 years ago.
El Tovar provides 78 rooms and suites all with cable television, telephone, full bath and air conditioning. There are three styles of accommodation at the El Tovar Lodge: standard; deluxe & suites. Each room category offers a number of bed arrangements (see right sidebar). All rooms at El Tovar are non-smoking
El Tovar is a large lodge built just steps away from the very edge of the south rim. The first floor is sheathed with log slab siding complete with finely-honed corner notching that gives the appearance of log construction. The upper stories have rough weatherboards. Log-slab moldings surround the windows on the first floor; those on the upper stories have heavy, milled moldings. You will find a comfortable and inviting lobby upon check in where peeled log posts with carved corbels support the floor of the mezzanine lounge above. The mezzanine lounge is an octagon shaped balcony that overlooks the registration lobby.
The El Tovar Lodge is brimming with elegance and charm. The El Tovar Dining Room features beautiful construction work incorporating native stone and Oregon pine in a traditional mix of decor and ambiance.
The El Tovar dining room will seat around 211 people and another 60 or so at the bar. The dining room at El Tovar is situated perpendicular to the grand canyon rim, so there are some tables that offer exceptional views looking out over the canyon. Window seats can be requested in either room, but they cannot be reserved or guaranteed, so it is advisable that you dine early and avoid the rush if you want preferred window seating.
The menu at El Tovar blends regional and classical flavors while utilizing contemporary techniques. The El Tovar dining room is considered one of the finest dining establishments at the Grand Canyon. The restaurant at El Tovar serves breakfast, lunch and dinner.
As is often the case with in-park accommodations, it is best to make your reservations here as early as possible - up to a year in advance - because rooms tend to book up quickly.
