GRAND CANYON NATIONAL PARK, Ariz., Nov. 27, 2012 – When winter comes, Arizona’s Grand Canyon National Park puts on a sweater of solitude and mystery, drawing travelers from around the world who seek inspiration and rejuvenation. Concessioner Xanterra South Rim is making it easy to experience a wintertime respite with reduced rates at Maswik Lodge and a couples package at the historic El Tovar.
“The Canyon is serene and beautiful in the winter, and our guests seem to be quieter and perhaps more introspective than they are in the summer,” said Jon Streit, general manager of Xanterra South Rim. “We see lots of guests perched on a rock and simply staring at the vastness of the park, or waiting quietly with their cameras for the perfect light of sunset. I think travelers are drawn here because they are seeking inspiration.”
And that inspiration comes at bargain prices for visitors staying overnight in Maswik on the South Rim. Rates at Maswik Lodge drop now through March 7, 2013.
The Winter Value Rate at Maswik Lodge South is $85 per night plus tax and $115 per night at Maswik Lodge North. No promo codes are required to receive the Winter Value Rate.
If you stay at least two nights at Maswik North, you’ll receive an additional discount and pay only $95 per night plus tax. This rate requires at least two consecutive nights and the promo code is “STAY2” when making reservations.
The one- and two-night Winter Value Rates are available from now through March 7, 2013, excluding Dec. 21 – 31, 2012. The rates are valid for single or double occupancy. The cost for each additional person in the room is $9. Children 16 and under stay in the same room at no extra charge. Lodge and room type are subject to availability and seasonal closures. (Summer and holiday rates at this hotel ranges from $92 to $176 per night.)
Maswik Lodge is a 278-room facility located a short walk from the South Rim and at the southwest end of Grand Canyon Village. Named for a Hopi Kachina who is said to guard the Grand Canyon, Maswik features a gift shop, cafeteria, lounge, rooms with private baths and sightseeing tours.
