Expert Review

In 2005, the Grand Canyon's most famous lodging was beautifully restored to its original grandeur, a full century after its construction on the very edge of the South Rim. The rambling building, constructed of pine and stone, has hosted dozens of notables – from Teddy Roosevelt to Albert Einstein. There are 78 rooms in this stately building, all with private bath, and some with porches and balconies. It's not a fancy place, but staying in this grand old lodge is a real treat and easily the most popular accommodation in the park (so book way ahead if you want any chance of scoring a reservation).
