Designed in 1935, Bright Angel Lodge is one of the oldest buildings in the park.

Located right on the canyon's edge at the west end of the historic Grand Canyon Village, the lodge is a throwback to the early pioneer days of Grand Canyon with its exposed timber, natural rock walls, and American Indian-inspired art and accents. It offers rooms for rent, two restaurants, a lounge, gift shop, snack bar, museum, and tours.


Bright Angel has 90 lodging units ranging from cozy historic units with shared bathrooms, to standard lodge rooms and historic cabins, to the one of a kind "Buckey O'Neill Cabin". Accommodations range from rustic cabins (with in-room coffee maker, satellite TV, and private bath) to lodge rooms (with no television and a shared bath). All rooms are equipped with telephone and refrigerator. Most rooms have only one bed.

Please note: Rooms with canyon views are very limited and cannot be guaranteed.
