Situated on the South Rim of the Grand Canyon, the lodge is centrally located in the Grand Canyon Historic District. The 55 rooms here are simple: two queen beds or one king, and air conditioning is not an option. However, for a hotel with some of the best access and views of the Grand Canyon, the Thunderbird is hard to beat. Rooms are equipped with TV’s, coffee makers and refrigerators. Guests of the hotel check in at the Bright Angel Lodge.

Check-in is at the Bright Angel Lodge. Friendly and competent staff. Can' t beat the location next to the rim. Parking might be a challenge depending on your arrival time. Rooms are clean and acceptable.
*** THERE IS NO SIGNS TO TELL YOU WHERE THIS IS AT !!!!
No instructions on the booking reservation which were thru the lodge's web site.
after driving around the "loop" the people at the Maswik advise had to go to Bright Angel to check in for the Thunderbird. Night clerk was a jerk, his supervisor stepped out and took care of problem clerk, room was comfortable. The VIEW was unimaginable great sunrise pic and looked out in the predawn hours and a 8 point buck standing munching on the grass. very cool 08/22/2019-08/23/2019
