Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    We stayed 2 nights at the El Tovar and exited the park to the east, down the East Rim Drive. It was not busy at all, which was nice. We stopped at a half dozen stops. Grandview and the Desert View Watchtower were my favorites.

    Google says the road is closed from Oct on for the winter but we didn’t find that to be true. We were there Oct 25 and were able to drive to Point Imperial and Cape Royal Point. The NPS north rim visitor center IS closed however and there was one bathroom open but nothing else in terms of food and facilities. Absolutely beautiful views though and highly recommend. Very few people.

    I wasn't quite sure what to expect going to the North Rim of the Grand Canyon, I was in awe.
    Previous experience was a helicopter out of Vegas, to the river, and a short "boat' ride...which was great also. But I feel like now I have really seen the Grand Canyon. It's more amazing than I can say,

    Outstanding view, no matter where you look from. It’s the Grand Canyon, so not much point going on about the incredible views, as what more can you say. The park shuttle bus system works very very well. It took a few buses to clear up the crowd at the terminal point , but it was flawless after that - the ultimate hop off hop on. Spend as much time as you like at each viewpoint, then catch the next bus to the next viewpoint. Congratulations to whoever came up with that system.
