Smart money would be to stay somewhere in Flagstaff. Gotta be worlds cheaper, and only an hour drive to the Canyon...

RLast year I stayed out in Mission Valley with an early bird room; this year I am thinking downtown. But if I get shut out in that sale it's still possible to circle back and get a Mission Valley room?

Still waiting to see if I score a downtown hotel before I finalize planning of the trip. Only hotel rooms I have reserved so far are a couple of nights near the Grand Canyon. Decided to spend the extra bucks to stay close.

I'm also not completely set on heading to Las Vegas from there. I might do something farther south on the way to San Diego if there was anything interesting.

And thanks to Jace's son, I have one ... he got all four days (and they were able to get the rest of the days too).

I still can't stand the process for these passes but at least the system works without crashes and freezes now. I guess it's fair, though.
