We stumbled upon the hotel while we were planning a trip to the Grand Canyon and it was one-stop shopping! Everything we wanted to do was right there. Train tickets and meals were included. We left our car and avoided the busy parking lots in the park because we attended the sights on a guided bus tour. It was great-from...

The grounds for the hotel are lovely and hugely convenient if you're taking the train. Our room was a good size and the beds were comfortable. The staff were all very friendly and helpful. The indoor pool was a hit with my daughter. My only complaint was we found a bit of hair in the bathroom - the bathroom didn't...

Historic gem. We stayed in the Rail Baron suite and were pleasantly surprised. Spacious room. The only room with a king bed. The food and service is average. Site of origin of the train to the Grand Canyon. There is also a Wild West show. Downtown area is on historic Route 66.

Wow. Cannot say enough good things about this place. As one of the only games in town and as home to Grand Canyon Railway, we were very surprised. We stayed in a deluxe room with two queen beds that had finished renovations only a month prior. Very nice. Beds were extremely comfortable and everything in the room worked very well...

This hotel is very clean and the service is good. We were able to book the AAA package that includes two breakfasts buffets and two dinner buffets, tickets to the Grand Canyon via the Train and a Lunch Buffet at the Grand Canyon. The package also included a 15 minute western show (I think anyone can watch this) and a...

We stayed in the deluxe room which was beautifully decorated. The room looked and felt comfortable. The train ride was great and entertainment was good. Check in and check was easy. The bus tour was great. My only complaint was there wifi was very unreliable. It did not work for most of time. Other than that I would definitely recommend...

I took my family the week before Easter. Looks like high season and everybody busy keeping up. No lines. Got a good quiet room. We took the package with the bus tour at the Canyon and the train ride using the bubble top train. The hotel has a good pool and spa. Well maintained all around. Looks like some rooms...

We stayed here one night on either end of our train trip into the Grand Canyon. The room was clean and comfortable. The staff was friendly. Our bags were taken from the railway hotel right to our room in the Grand Canyon park and then transferred back just as conveniently. We never had to drag suitcases anywhere or worry about...

We had a wonderful time staying at this hotel. It is so conveniently located at the train station. The breakfast buffet is not included but totally worth getting. The rooms were very nice and clean and comfortable. The kids loved the lobby. Very nice experience.

Sprawling complex that could use more elevators! Pleasant, clean room. Well-lit, comfortable bathroom and shower. Refrigerator in room, but no microwave. Food at the buffet was good and plentiful, but when an item was gone, it was gone. Ran out of carving station meat one evening, so no more carving station at that point. Breakfasts were excellent. Servers were quite...
