Grand Canyon West Rim Hotels

The up-and-coming West Rim of the Grand Canyon, aka Grand Canyon West and recently made popular by the Grand Canyon Skywalk, offers an alternate view of the Grand Canyon from Hualapai Indian reservation land outside the National Park's boundaries. However, while there are some accommodations on and just outside the West Rim - namely, Hualapai Ranch & Cabins (on site, 2 miles from the Grand Canyon West entrance) and the Grand Canyon Ranch Resort in Meadview (14 miles from Grand Canyon West entrance) - lodging is in short supply in this extremely remote part of the state; therefore, many visitors wisely book overnight lodging in nearby Kingman, Laughlin, Las Vegas and Lake Havasu as an alternative to have access to greater hotel, dining and activity choices. Similarly, visitors who are looking for the Hualapai Lodge, a popular choice for those embarking on an early morning departure of a 1-day river rafting trip, Jeep tour to the bottom of Grand Canyon, or hike to Havasupai, should understand that while the Lodge is considered a West Rim hotel, it is located 3 hours (116 miles) from Grand Canyon West in Peach Springs.

Most Grand Canyon West visitors stay in Las Vegas. Getting a hotel in Las Vegas is more than convenient, it makes for an all-around great vacation. Visitors can get cheap flights into Las Vegas almost year-round, there are plenty of hotels to fit every budget (and even theme), and there's plenty to do when not seeing a true natural wonder of the world. If you're looking to see the Grand Canyon from Arizona side, here are some other Grand Canyon hotels and accommodation.
