This is Not Your Father's Best Western
Located right outside the entrance of the South Rim, this is not a North Rim Hotel as Expedia erroneously suggests. While it is only 17.35 miles from the Nort Rim for cross flying from one to the other, us humans need to drive over 200 miles around the Canyon.
As for the hotel itself, Best Western's Premier designation is accurate; this is not your dad's Best Western. The fascinating photos of the Grand Canyon's yesteryear will have you studying the walls of the hallways and your room. The rock garden scene of a cowboy lassoing a steer in the rear lobby may sound hokey, but it is not. Instead,MIG is both stunning and tasteful.
I loved this hotel and I am a seasoned traveler.
