About Your Hotel

Whether you’re here to hike or take a mule ride to the bottom of the canyon, go bird watching, river rafting, star gazing or simply admire the awe-inspiring vistas, you’ll be joining an elite club of previous guests including Theodore Roosevelt, Albert Einstein, President Bill Clinton, Sir Paul McCartney and countless others.

The lobby has a cosy, Swiss chalet feel to it and due to the historic nature of the hotel no two rooms are alike, which gives the hotel a somewhat distinctive charm. The rooms are decorated in styles ranging from modern to traditional.

Unwind at the end of a busy day of canyon exploration, with a refreshing drink at the art-filled bar before heading for dinner at the hotel’s rustic-chic restaurant with seasonal alfresco seating. Or alternatively, take a walk into the village where there are plenty of places to eat, shop and admire the scenery.

If you don’t have your own transport and would like to go further afield, the hotel provides a free area shuttle to destinations within 25 miles.
