We had a cabin right on the rim with a breathtaking view! The cabin was clean, comfortable with a queen bed, and cozy with the best view. It had a ceiling fan and fireplace. We didn't use the fireplace as the heat came on when necessary. Bathroom had all the necessities, loved the room!

We really enjoyed staying two nights in a Bright Angel cabin. Ours was not connected to any other room, so no neighbor noise. Of course, there is no a.c. When we arrived early, we got our room right away. We opened the cute windows and the cabin air was pleasant. At night, the baseboard heating kept us warm. The shower was tiny but workable. The room had a single cup coffeemaker (ask for more coffee at the front desk if you are staying more than one night). We brought packets of oatmeal and could make it with the hot water from the coffee maker. It was great to be so close to the rim (no need to pay extra for a rim view-just walk a bit to see the sights). Parking was OK, a hunt and find situation, but we stayed during the week so the crowds were not too great. Comfortable bed. Good t.v. We brought flashlights but didn't need them. We will recommend these cabins to friends as it seems to be the most reasonably priced lodging in the park! Book well ahead of your trip. Hostess at the front desk was really nice, too!

Another Wonderful Cabin
On checking in, the check-in clerk was quite nice and accommodating. And the cabin? Nice. First off, as we found last time, the cabin was very clean and well maintained. Could hardly tell that it was about 100 years old. It was right off the road (would have liked it to be closer to the Canyon rim. But still a great location). The cabin was bright and airy. It had a high queen bed, dresser, credenza with refrigerator and coffee maker. In the corner was a nice comfortable easy chair. They had recently redone bathroom with shower and pedestal sink. The cabin was very nice. All we could want.

Not sure what all of the complaints are about-great stay!
We spent a night here and have absolutely zero complaints. Bed was comfortable, location is AMAZING! We stayed in The Powell Building and were just steps away from the Rim Trail and The Bright Angel Trailhead. The room is basic but I’m not at the Grand Canyon to hang out in my room. Just need a warm place to sleep and shower. We would stay here again without hesitation. Dinner at El Tovar was great!

Great Location but Old Cabins
This is a great location 20 feet from the rim of the canyon. You can step out for the sunrise or to gaze at the stars. But these "cabins" were built in the 30s and no matter what management tries to do to modernize them, they are of mediocre construction. Our neighbors woke us up taking baths! What? The staff needs some instruction on service: some don't seem to care and others think you as a guest owe them for letting you stay here. However, the manager, Holly, is first class and knows what upscale service means, so if you have any issue, ask to speak with her. The El Tovar dinning room is wonderful, and if you are lucky enough to get a seat looking out one of the windows, you'll love the view. One of the assistant dinning room managers was a bit snobbish as she bruskly dismissed my request for a specific table as we were dinning there multiple nights, but otherwise the dinning room staff were great and the food very good. If you like wine, be sure to try one of the special vintages Rutherford makes for the hotel. We tried them all and thought they were quite good.
