Hi Jenni & Ziners,
The Grand Canyon, how magnificent! We stayed at the Bright Angel Lodge our last trip and were pleasently suprised. Although not very modern, rooms were rustic and warm. We went over New Years. Most of these rooms are barely 30 feet from the edge of the Canyon. If you prefer upscale the El Tovar is a good choice if available. Either way definitley dinner at sunset in the El Tovar restaurant. It is as awe inspiring as fireworks from the Hancock Tower over Navy Pier in summer. Do not wait too long to reserve as the rooms fill up fast. http://www.nps.gov/grca/index.htm
Throughout the Grand Canyon there is a shuttle(free) that stops at all hotels, campgrounds, outpost and overlooks.
There are many varied dining and sightseeing choices. There are Native American museums, some small art studios and trading posts. Something we plan for a future trip includes the day train from Williams, Az to the Grand Canyon.
The evening/night time at the Grand Canyon is stunning. Very serene when it is just the residents, permanent or transient.
Enjoy, Vince & Gerry in Philadelphia
