The Grand Hotel at the Grand Canyon
While it was built in 1998, this lodge-inspired hotel has plenty of Old West spirit. It has a hulking stone fireplace in the lobby, horse-saddle seats at the Canyon Star Saloon and unique items in its gift shop. Pillowy mattresses top the beds in the ochre-toned, contemporary rooms. Its best feature, though? Its location. It’s only 1mi (1.6km) away from the Grand Canyon National Park, surrounded by the aromatic sprawl of the Kaibab National Forest. If you stay here, you’ll get a head start on the day trippers.
