Maswik Lodge Cafeteria / Lounge in October 2018

Maswik Lodge is a lodge in Grand Canyon National Park that is run by Xanterra Parks & Resorts.[1] It is named after a Hopi Kachina figure said to watch over the Grand Canyon.[1] Maswik Lodge is located about 0.25 miles (0.40 km) from the South Rim of the Grand Canyon.[1] It is on the west side of Grand Canyon Village. The lodge contains a cafeteria, lounge, and many spread out room complexes.[1]

History

The lodge began in 1927 as a Fred Harvey hotel for drivers of their own automobiles (as opposed to most of the travelers who arrived on rail or stage coaches).[2] In the 1940s, 20 new buildings were added along with moving 22 buildings from Bright Angel Lodge.[2] Most of the original buildings were removed in 1971 and replaced with a more modern motel structure.[2] In 2018, the park considered demolishing all of the existing buildings.[2]

Fodor's review of the lodge noted pros: "well-equipped northern unites, good for families, and affordable dining." Fodor's review noted cons of: "rooms lack historic charm, tucked away from the rim in the forest, and south units don't have air conditioning."
