We booked a package for two nights at the Grand Canyon Railway Hotel and one night at the Maswik Lodge in the Canyon. The GCRH was great. Very nice staff, good clean room, and the breakfasts and dinners in the buffet were good. The train ride was really nice and since we booked the dome car, we had access to the whole train so we got to take a tour of all the cars. Fun entertainment both directions and the US Marshall was a hoot! Our room at the Maswik was also nice but located a ways from the main lodge. It is very very dark there but I read another review and took their advice and stuck a small flashlight in my bag! We had drinks and pizza in the lodge and dinner and breakfast in the buffet. The pizza place was great, the buffet for dinner and breakfast ok. Both places had reasonable prices. The ride back was very relaxing after walking all over the canyon and getting "Robbed" by cute cowboys was fun.
The "Main Event" the canyon itself was totally awe inspiring! Everyone should see this wonder once in their life! Pictures don't do it justice. If you get the chance to go, don't pass it by. You won't be disappointed.
