Expensive, but nice
We planned our Grand Canyon trip just a few months before we went, so staying on the property of the national park was out of the question, since those hotels get booked over a year in advance. I went in search of the next best thing, and found this place on Trip Advisor.
This hotel is run by the same company that owns several (all?) of the hotels within the park, so they are deeply entrenched in the activities their customers are interested in. The location is very convenient, plus they are a stop on the bus line that goes directly into the park, so that is a big benefit.
As we worked out the details of our trip, we only needed to spend one night here, which is good, because this place is very expensive for what it is. We also wanted to check in early (only a couple of hours) so that we could get started on our exploration of the canyon. They obliged, but charged us an extra $20, which just felt like a money grab, since they clearly had a room available.
When we arrived in our room we were quite pleased. We were on the first floor, which has exceptionally high ceilings, which made the room seem bigger than it really was. While not spacious, the room was very nice and comfortable, with granite countertops on the furniture and in the bathroom. It also had a nice little kitchenette type of area, although it was oddly placed right next to one of the beds.
To be honest, we were at this hotel less than 24 hours so I don’t have much more than this to offer. Nice, convenient, but expensive. If you are OK with the cost, it could be a good choice for you.

Expensive but missing some basics
This is a nice hotel but also misses some basics. There were no places to charge your phone next to your bed. In 2019 that is as basic as it comes. I needed a pen to do some writing but there wasn't one in the room so I had to down to the front desk. The restaurants were off too. The nice restaurant said there was a long wait even though it wasn't busy and had many open tables. We went to the saloon and the food was lousy and order mixed up.

Clearly a very bad price/quality ratio but not many other alternatives...
Outdated, no charm, expensive, but it has the advantage of being well located and almost everything in the area is the same...
BUT little advice: the breakfast is a trap. You have to pay it BEFORE having a look at the buffet and oh my god the buffet is awful

Very expensive for what it is!
The hotel is well located. However it is very expensive for the performances it offers. We booked a room for 5, it was very small and old stylish compared to other hotels, much cheaper, in which we stayed (also close to the parks). On top, the breakfast is not included, whereas it is the case for most of the other hotels. My advice: check around the other offers before booking this hotel!

This hotel is nice, clean & comfortable but not worth the cost.
The Grand Hotel is in a great location. It is approximately 10 miles from the Grand Canyon rim. The Hotel is nice, clean & comfortable but not worth the cost. The Pool is small & not large enough to accomodate both an adult & kid crowd. The restaurant & bar is pricey. Only several customers were seen in the large dining room at any one time. The room was okay but not exceptional. Breakfast time was the sme way. There are other hotels in town that should be considered before staying here.
