About these ratings

Grand Canyon Village is the most popular entryway into the park and, as such, often suffers from heavy crowds during the peak seasons in spring, summer and fall. But there's a reason the area is so appealing. It holds some of the best lookout points in the park, including Yavapai Point, which Frommer's claims is one of the best places to view the canyon. If you don't like camping but want to stay within the park, you should consider looking for lodging here.

If you're staying elsewhere, anticipate spending at least half a day visiting the village's sights. If you're interested in history, stop by the rustic Grand Canyon Railway Depot, which welcomes Grand Canyon Railway passengers to the village. Here, you'll learn about how the expansion of the railroad had an impact on Grand Canyon tourism. For authentic Native American souvenirs, head to the Hopi House, an adobe-style building representing a traditional Hopi crafts studio. Art aficionados should stop by the Kolb and Lookout studios for works of art inspired by the Grand Canyon.

The park's best hotels, including the El Tovar Hotel and the Bright Angel Lodge, lie within the village border or in close proximity. (Take warning: lodging within the park can be very expensive).
