This big, modern hotel is located right next to the depot for the railroad to the South Rim, and specializes in packages that include train tickets. The hotel originally opened in 1901, then closed—along with the railway—in 1969, but reopened in grand fashion 20 years later. Today it does good business when the train runs, housing overnight guests in modern rooms that are slated for a remodel in 2014–15. There are three tiers of rooms (standard, deluxe, and suites), all 300 or more square feet of space (what the décor will be like is anybody’s guess as I write this, but if history’s any guide, it should be cushy). The 1,000-square-foot Rail Baron Suite is, for my money, the nicest room in northern Arizona, with a full kitchen, slick contemporary décor, and a railroad motif. The property also encompasses and RV park and a kennel for dogs whose masters have headed to the pet-unfriendly South Rim for the day.
