Grand Canyon West, is a travel destination that promotes the cultural experience of visiting the Hualapai Reservation. Its most-known attraction is the Grand Canyon Skywalk, a glass bridge that juts out 70 feet over the canyon edge, suspending visitors 4,000 feet above the canyon floor and the Colorado River. It is an amazing sensation with 360°, incredible views of the western rim of the Grand Canyon. And you'd better booking the hotels near Grand Canyon West Rim firstly.
While conveniently located just 125 miles east of Las Vegas, Nevada, Grand Canyon West is in a dramatically remote part of northwestern Arizona, with few developed comforts in the area. The West Rim does feature overnight accommodations nearby; Hualapai Ranch and Hualapai Lodge are operated by the Tribe. The Hualapai Ranch is located inside the Grand Canyon West recreation area, while the Lodge is approximately 90 minutes from the West Rim in Peach Springs, AZ on historic Route 66. A third option is the Grand Canyon Ranch Resort, just 2 miles outside Grand Canyon West on Diamond Bar Ranch Road. This working cattle ranch offers pine cabins, sleeping tipis (seasonally), western entertainment, helicopter flights, and horseback rides. The Hualapai have preserved this remote part of Arizona, providing lodging and dining that meet our creature comforts, but not taking away from the beauty that is the Grand Canyon West Rim.
Truth be told, most Grand Canyon West Rim visitors are daytrippers who choose to book their overnight accommodations in Las Vegas, NV — just a 2 ½-hour drive from this western-most Grand Canyon point of interest. One can easily drive themselves or take a bus or coach tour from Las Vegas and see the West Rim in 8 hours round-trip, or even half that time on a helicopter or air tour from Las Vegas.
We also highly recommend checking out West Rim hotels in Kingman, just 70 miles from Grand Canyon West and a central resting stop with easy access to I-40, I-93, and several fascinating attractions including ghost towns, gold mines, museums, lakes, Hoover Dam, gaming and more. Other nearby options are Laughlin, NV (110 miles) and Lake Havasu (128 miles).
