Bright Angel Lodge And Cabins
I spent three nights at the Bright Angel Lodge in November 2011 durig a trip around the southwest USA.
Bright Angela Lodge rooms are all non-smoking and are located in spllit-level buildings which are separate from the main lodge building. The buildings are located within easy walking distance of the canyon rim.
Lodge rooms feature a double bed, sink and telephone. Bathrooms are provided in shared facilities with the buildings and bathrooms accessible by keycard.
Bright Angel Lodge does not offer air-conditioning.
Amazing place, Don't even think of going anywhere
We made our own way here from vegas. we timed to arrive about 4'o clock after all the tour buses had left and we booked out at 10'oclock before they arrived the following day. We stayed at the bright angel lodge right on the rim. The sunset and sunrise from this location were brilliant and as all the day trippers had gone home there was loads of space to walk freely. A real easy going relaxing place. Also much much cheaper than going on organised trips if you have a family.
The blue angel is not a fancy 5 start super duper hotel. It does fit in perfectly with the surroundins ina very basic and timeless way. The staff are unbelievably helpful and friendly and a smaal bar with a local guy playing guitar and singing a few songs really made for a brilliant atmosphere
Unique Quality: Location. Simple as that. You will not find a better hotel anywhere at this price
You can't get any closer to the rim!
I stayed in June of 2008 at one of the Bright Angel Cabins. We were only 50 to 75 feet from the edge of the rim! You don't have to go far to check out the sunrise or sunset.
The next morning at 6 a m I walked down the path to the edge of the rim and I was startled by a noise behind me. It was a mule deer. She took her time walking to the edge and then slowly went down the rim into the steep canyon.
The rooms have a TV, my room only had one bed (double), small fridge. You are paying for the viewand location! It was worth it for one night.
Unique Quality: Right by the rim.
You can't get any closer than this
The night before Scott and I hiking to the bottom of the grand Canyon we stayed at the Bright Angel Lodge. Older, smaller rooms. The upside is you are right next to the rim.
Bright Angel is a stone's throw away from all the shops and places to eat too. If you don't call early enough it will be booked up.
Unique Quality: Close to the rim with some history on its side.
Best Affordable Lodging on the Rim
The Bright Angel Cabins are located on the rim of the Grand Canyon. If you get lucky, you may get a room facing the Canyon. The rooms are small and simple but, are clean and very affordable. It had a shared shower down the hall but, the rooms have private toilets/sinks. It is a short walk to the restaurant and Main Lodge. At the Lodge you can make reservations for different tours and such. I strongly suggest making reservations months in advance, especially in the peak periods, as everything gets booked up rapidly.
Unique Quality: Unique Qualities......The view of The Grand Canyon. Pictures will never do it justice!
Lodging at the Canyon
Being at Las Vegas, you should make a brake to take an overnight stay at the Grand Canyon.
The contrast between human artificial paraphernalia (at its best in Las Vegas) and the powerful tranquillity of nature in the canyons, will surely strike you and make you think.
Thinking it's really the best sport. Brigth Angel Hotel right at the edge of the canyon, or Maswik Lodge, some steps aside (more expensive), are peaceful solutions.
Unique Quality: Fully integrated with nature and landscape.
