Williams-Grand Canyon News

WILLIAMS, Ariz. - Grand Canyon Railway (GCR) completed a $400,000 renovation including upgrades to 10 suites in its hotel in Williams, Ariz., a new saline pool system and enhanced landscaping surrounding the hotel.

"Our goal is to enhance the whole experience for our guests who want to travel to the Grand Canyon and explore the many offerings in this region during the day and unwind at night," said Bruce Brossman, Arizona regional director of sales and marketing for Grand Canyon Railway. "When you factor in the recent introduction of our luxury dome service and our renovation to the Grand Depot Café in early 2013, we expect both groups and families to be pleased with our new look and feel."

Upgrades to the suites include:

• new granite vanities and kitchenettes;

• all new furniture, including pull-out sofa, comfortable lounge chairs and dining room table;

• flat screen televisions in main living area and bedroom;

• train photography art;

• desk in main living area;

• full-length mirror

• white subway tile bath and historic tile flooring in bathroom;

• small fridge and microwave in room;

• kitchenette sinks;

• premier bedding with upgraded comforter, pillows, sham and skirting;

• new drapes;

• two ADA-accessible bathrooms - one with a roll-in shower; and

• clock radios with CD and accessory hook up jack.

The new saline pool system works by using salt in the pool and spa water to sanitize the water. Swimmers enjoy the natural therapeutic health benefits of the mild salt water with no negative effects usually suffered with manually chlorinated systems. Some of those advantages are no red eyes, irritated skin or damaged hair and bathing suits.

The Grand Canyon Railway Hotel was designed to resemble the historic Fray Marcos Hotel and Williams Depot structures that stand nearby. The hotel is comprised of 199 standard rooms, 87 deluxe rooms, 10 suites and one luxury suite as well as a large enclosed crescent-shaped pool, a spacious meeting room and a large courtyard with a game room, hot tub and an exercise room.
