Contemporary style blended with natural touches make Thunderbird Lodge an ideal accommodation choice at the south rim of the canyon. Family-focused, the lodge has ample amenities to make for a memorable stay in the heart of the Historic District. Many of the comfortable, modern rooms offer canyon views while others overlook Historic Village streets. Thunderbird Lodge is walking distance to restaurants, gift shops, Kolb Studio, Verkamp’s Visitor Center and Bright Angel Trail Head. Outdoor enthusiasts will enjoy the lodge’s location directly on the Rim Trail, which spans from Hermits Rest to the Kaibab Trailhead—approximately 12.8 miles.
Please Note: Guests staying at Thunderbird Lodge will need to check-in at the Bright Angel Lodge Front Desk.
Note: All parking lots on the South Rim are open to all National Park visitors. There is no charge for parking with your paid entrance fee, however during peak periods of visitation, it may be necessary to park in satellite parking lots, as there is no assigned hotel parking for guests.
