The hotel

Being so close to the Grand Canyon, you can pop back at different times to take in the changing colours throughout the day. As well as being surrounded by natural beauty, you’ll also be a short walk from the IMAX cinema, well worth a visit. Back at the the Grand Canyon Plaza Hotel, you can relax in the beautiful interior courtyard garden, take a dip in the hot tub or pool, or enjoy a drink in the saloon.

A tip of the hat to Steve, the front desk manager instantly solved my problem regarding a wheelchair accessible room. He upgraded us to a suite since the first room presented problems for this mobility challenged guest. Also the restaurant was very good and the hotel is only a mile from the Grand Canyon's South Gate.

Like everything else in Tusayan, this hotel is gross and overpriced. It's a 2-star motel from 1992 at the price of a decent 4-star. If, however, you approach it with that expectation, it's... fine.

You don't need multiple days in the Grand Canyon. Read less

After landing in Phoenix and driving for three hours we were really tired. The young lady at the desk got us into room 1375 with two double beds. This hotel was nice and the people were friendly. The facility was large and had a restaurant with it.

What a wonderful hotel in the most amazing place. This hotel was perfect for our stay and I wish we could have stayed longer. We had a double queen room and the facilities were wonderful. Lovely big beds, fantastic bathroom facilities and large rooms. I would definitely recommend this place for any visit to the Grand canyon.

Nice hotel. It has a shop right next to the reception. Breakfast was fine and there was a variety of options to chose from.
