"Good as aprt of a package deal"

This hotel came as part of a package deal that included a night's stay, then a train ride to the Grand Canyon, overnight accommodations at the canyon, a return train ride, then another night’s stay on the back end.

Things we liked: The hotel is located right at the train depot. It is also fairly centrally located in the town of Williams. The rooms are nice. There is baggage service where you leave your bags at a location in the lobby in the morning & they deliver them to your room in the Grand Canyon for you. There is a free cowboy show in the outdoor amphitheater in the morning before the train departs. There are full sized amenities in the bathroom (shampoo, conditioner, body wash) as well as a blow dryer – very convenient!

Things we would have changed: The hotel is massive. It’s hard to secure parking near your room. Walking to your room is a hike in itself. The indoor pool is not monitored & when we used it, it was absolutely full of older teens & adults playing so roughly I couldn’t leave my 9-year old alone in the pool to play while I sat at the edge for fear she would get trampled.

Things to consider: After reading the online reviews of the meals offered with the optional meal plan in the package, I opted to book without the food & dine on our own. I’m so glad I did, as we found some awesome little restaurants in Williams that we otherwise would have missed & ended up spending less money. When you return from the canyon, split up (if possible) & send half your party to the luggage area to find your suitcases & the rest of you BEELINE to the check-in desk. You need to check in again on your return for your second night – you and an entire train load of people. You can only imagine the lines! Pack a small piece of luggage for your overnight to the canyon. Store the rest of your luggage in your car.

All in all, it was a pleasant stay & the luggage service was nice to have. The staff is extremely helpful & pleasant. However, if I was either passing through Williams or only taking a day train ride to the canyon without an overnight stay, I would opt for one of the other motels in Williams. Definitely skip the meal plan.
