You can’t ride the coat tails of location forever . Yes extremely convenient so much so that I would probably come here again despite the review . No elevator and carried my bags to third floor. Dark , dingy , lackluster wireless service , below average food. Need I say more . Close it down for a year and invest ten million. Trust me you will get it back. If I had more time I absolutely would not have stayed here.

Convenient but expensive

El Torvar is certainly a convenient base from which to explore the Grand Canyon, but for the price, the amenities are lacking. The lobby was always congested, and had a smoky and unappealing smell. Our room was rather drab, again considering the cost. It's likely that other, less expensive, in-park options provide the same level of access to the canyon and amenities.

We had a great time here on our anniversary. Dinner, Champaign, great service with a window view. Make reservations early as the Grand Canyon is a busy place and hard to get into dining during reopening of covid-19

El Tovar Hotel is directly on the rim of the Grand Canyon. The sunsets and 5am sunrises were breathtakingly beautiful.

My mother, daughter and I very much enjoyed the convenience of El Tovar Hotel being directly on the rim of the Grand Canyon. The view was spectacular. However, we were extremely disappointed with our suite at El Tovar (I think it was room 6419). The grand front steps, porch, main lobby, stairway and second floor seating area, all considered public spaces, were so congested that we struggled to get our luggage and ourselves up to our room. The room itself was not clean to the standards of the $600.00 per night rate. The armrests on the old chairs were stained and dirty. The carpet tiles looked cheap, and some did not lay flat. The large cabinet in the sitting room was fingerprinted and chipped along the bottom exposing bare wood needing repair. The chairs around the round glass table were, at the base, coated with dust. While the black and white tiled bathroom was truly the only elegant room, I was shocked to find the inside lining of the shower curtain stained with a considerable amount of, what looked like, blood. The room was dark and dingy, and furnishings were old and dirty. Not at all the grand hotel that we expected. The woman at the front desk (I believe her name was Gwen) was kind and apologized, giving instructions to have the shower curtain replaced at once. The other concerns could not be helped.
