Radisson Woodlands Hotel
Located at 1175 W. Route 66 in Flagstaff, Arizona, the Radisson Woodlands Hotel has a distinct air around it, a certain atmosphere of comfort and elegance that are rarely found in other Grand Canyon hotels. From the moment you enter the hotel's lobby, your eyes are greeted by the rich decors of Italian marble and granite details. There is also an inviting wood-burning fireplace and furniture featuring hand-carved teakwood art.
There are, of course, any more Grand Canyon hotels to choose from. Most of the above mentioned are located in the South Rim, considered as the Grand Canyon's main tourist center. The North Rim, which is equally lovely, has few facilities but accommodations are more than sufficient.
