{Our Dinner at the 1905 El Tovar Hotel | Grand Canyon National Park Lodges}

Historic El Tovar Hotel that got opened in 1905, is really quite a landmark at the Grand Canyon's South Rim. The good thing with all of Xanterra's Lodges is, you can dine at any location you want. So we did walk from our Maswik Lodge to the El Tovar Hotel for dinner. We'd loved to stay here too but because of Labor Day weekend, they were fully booked!
This is the historic hotel from the outside, Nikon photo, taken around 18:00 o'clock in the evening.
THE ELEGANT EL TOVAR
Grand Canyon Lodges El Tovar ←click it.
With its mix of luxury and charm, it is widely considered a crown jewel among national park lodges...
Lovely veranda in the front and also to the side where you can sit and watch the Navajo Hoop dancers in the afternoon, at next door's Hopi House... seen to the right on the previous photo.
We also ate lunch on their back porch, overlooking the Grand Canyon.
A magical place...
At nearby Verkamp Visitor Center, they have the Grand Canyon history laid out on the floor...
With my iPad, I captured the all wooden structure as good as I could.
Do you see the wooden beams, to the right from Pieter?
Such unique atmosphere!
Even though we were dressed casual, we felt like making a trip back in time at the Elegant El Tovar!
We traveled light with only one carry on each!
Their Menu is excellent, also for lunch!
Nine years ago, El Tovar Hotel celebrated A Century On The Rim...
Pieter had taken already a few bites before I took my iPad out for capturing his selection of: Sautéed Rainbow Trout with Red Pepper Marmalade...
My choice of: Loch Duart Scottish Salmon Tostada on OrganicGreens was delicious as well!
A nice dinner and well deserved after having hiked for a part into the Grand Canyon that day.
To the right you can see the spectacular view over the rim, from the veranda...
Those are the combined restaurants at the Grand Canyon Rim.
The Story of El Tovar
When the Santa Fe railroad reached Grand Canyon, construction of this first class hotel began.
Built of native boulders and Oregon Pine, the majestic, 100-room hotel opened on January 14, 1905.
Named El Tovar in honor of the Spanisch explorer Pedro de Tobar who had led the first expedition to Hopi Indian country in 1540.

      Yes, this is a lovely place and for lunch to eat on the porch it also is fantastic. Just imagine how back in 1905 this must have been for the very first tourists coming to the Grand Canyon.
      We did enjoy this dinner together, even more so on the day of our hike.
      Good for you to enjoy apple that way. Wishing you also a lovely new week.

  12. That is such a beautiful hotel. If I remember correctly, I tried to book the room but it was fully booked as well. Seems it's a very popular hotel. Love that plate with El Tovar logo. So elegant! And the food looks very yummy. Must have been extra tasty after long hike!

      Oh, we did enjoy our 'last dinner' at the Grand Canyon. This was very elegant and great food with healthy choices too!
      Wonder who all came to dine here in over one century. That is old for the USA; not for Europe I realize that very well.
