Designed by architect Mary Elizabeth Jane Colter in the1930s, Bright Angel Lodge is the quintessential Grand Canyon Lodge. Visitors who want to sleep right on the rim will delight in staying in one of the rim cabins, which offer partial--but still quite spectacular--canyon views. The lodge itself is comfortable and the amenities are quite good, considering the somewhat remote location. There are restaurants, a gift shop, coffee shop, and a transportation desk. The lodge is always busy, as it's located on one of the most popular trail heads at Grand Canyon National Park, and it's the check-in site for the park's popular mule rides down the canyon.
