The Grand Canyon Railway Hoel

Would recommend Fri, Oct 5, 2012
The hotel is very nice - except for the maze of hallways. The staff was fantastic. The only thing wrong was the shower didn't work properly. Most of the water came out of the faucet and only a sprinkle came out of the shower head.

Dining

Wouldn't recommend the restaurant at the depot. because it's a all you can eat buffet and I prefer a regular sit down meal. But the restaurants in town (very short walk) were excellent and cheaper.

Perfect place to stay for Grand Canyon vacation

Would recommend Fri, Aug 17, 2012
Stayed one night before driving the last hour to Grand Canyon, nice room, great staff, clean, only negative thing about the area is gas is 50 cents higher than everywhere else so fill up before you hit Williams, AZ.

Money saver

Fill tank before you get to Williams, AZ, gas is outragoues

Better than expected!

Would recommend Wed, Jun 20, 2012
Hotel was very clean. Lobby area is nice with comfortable couches. Rooms were a bit dated but very clean and comfortable. Dinner buffet looked like your basic buffet food. Opted to eat elsewhere. Surprised that they required my paid third party reservation receipt to check in. Fortunately I had printed it out and brought it. Overall, it was better than I expected. It is not a swanky high end hotel but it is one that I would feel comfortable recommending.

Getaway

Would recommend Thu, Apr 19, 2012
Everyone was friendly and helpful. The rooms were very clean and the beds were comfortable. Surprisingly, our room was located near the railroad and it was very quiet. Breakfast was available at the railroad cafe for a reasonable price. Everything in the buffet you can image. Along with made to order egg omelets. Plenty of dining options within walking distance of the hotel. Also, plenty of parking space available. Pet hotel available if you had pets and wanted to ride the train to the Grand Canyon.

Poncho McGuilcuddey's (spelling?) mexican restaurant was good mexican food.

Grand Canyon railway Hotel.

Would recommend Thu, Oct 6, 2011
There is absolutely no name of the hotel at the premises. If you didn't have the address you would never find it. The buffet there was below average and food was almost tasteless. Not the place to eat unless you don't have transportation to go elsewhere.

Dining

Don't eat at the hotel.

Family Getaway

Would recommend Thu, Sep 22, 2011
The hotel staff were friendly and placed both rooms next to each other. The amenities were average. It was nice to have a cafe/restaurant nearby. We liked the atmosphere and the coach rides offered with entertainment. We also liked the convenience of getting on the Grand Canyon train ride. The family had a nice time however didn't stay at the hotel too long to enjoy everything, it was all about the train and the Grand Canyon!

Time saver

To get on the Grand Canyon train, bar, and restaurant

Weekend getaway

Would recommend Tue, Jul 26, 2011
We stayed in Williams and took the Grand Canyon Railway to the Grand Canyon. 2 1/2 hours there and back with entertainment on the train. It was a great time. Williams is a fun town with gunfights in the streets. The hotel was across the parking lot from the depot. The service at the hotel bar was not the best. Requested a working remote for tv but not such luck.

Dining

It was a short walk to town. The restuarants also have entertainment.

Great Hotel

Would recommend Tue, Dec 21, 2010
We stayed one night at the Hotel. It was my daughter's and my first time to Williams, in fact to the USA. The hotel was PERFECT! We had adjoining rooms as we were traveling with an Amercian friend of mine. It was snowing when we got there and the rooms were lovely and warm. The whole Hotel setting and staff could not have been any better!

Dining

Absolutely fantastic Cafe close by, friendly staff and the best food!
