If you are heading toward the Grand Canyon I highly recommend an over night stay before heading to the rim. The reason is the crowds. With a stay at the hotel just 7 miles south of the rim, and 1.5 miles from the entrance, you can grab a great breakfast including (when we were there) sausage, bacon, fresh danish, eggs with cheese, cereal etc.. Then make an early entrance to the canyon. If you enter the south rim area it gets packed after 10 am so parking gets farther and farther back from the rim. We made it in at 8:30 and got right to the entrance at Mather. The staff here was excellent with canyon details including sunrise, sunsets, tour options etc. Rooms were clean, bathroom was a bit small as sinks were on the outside of the tub area. Ample parking. Heated Indoor pool and whirlpool. Price however is very high for an over night stop. But the trip was great and beat the crowds. Worth it in our opinion. Yes we will stay here next time.
