The original built by Union Pacific Railway in 1928 burned in 1932 and was replaced in 1937 by the grand lodge of today. The elegant stone and exposed beam hotel sits on the North Rim for spectacular views of the canyon from the broad windows in the Sun Room and restaurant. Located at Bright Angel Point, the lodge offers motel rooms and three styles of cabins, some with rim views. The dining room (BLD) serves a regional and 1930s-themed menu. Chuck wagon outdoor dinners feature brisket and chicken, and a dinner theater performs nightly. The Deli in the Pines (BL) serves sandwiches and pizza, the Roughrider Saloon opens at 11:30 a.m., and the Coffee Shop greets early risers at 5:30 a.m. Free parking, gift shop.
