El Tovar Hotel also known simply as El Tovar, is a former Harvey House hotel situated directly on the south rim of the Grand Canyon. The hotel was opened in 1905 as one of a chain of hotels and restaurants owned and operated by the Fred Harvey Company in conjunction with the Santa Fe railway. It is at the northern terminus of the Grand Canyon Railway. The hotel is one of only a handful of Harvey House facilities that are still in operation, and is an early example of the style that would evolve into National Park Service Rustic architecture.
