This hotel would be a destination even if it were not set in the relentless beauty of Yosemite Park. The thought and detail that went into this hotel will awe and inspire you. The Ahwahnee is so full of artful detail that they do tours; you can find out from the Yosemite daily newsletter when those tours will be held.... More

The history behind this iconic hotel is wonderful. Also, I highly recommend the Bracebridge Dinner (in December) as a once in a lifetime experience!

Even if you don't stay here, plan on at least one night for dinner. Arrive early and enjoy the bar and walk around the premises. Lots of history to enjoy.

The building is great; open to the public; fantastic views through the tall windows; restaurant is okay; wish they would serve hot milk with the hot coffee and tea.

Go there, just to walk thru when you visit Yosemite. You won't be disapointed. We went because a friend said it was a must.I am glad that we did.

The Ahwahnee is a must see. I love its Indian motif, all the stained class, its large grand dining room and grand sitting area. We browsed for two hours in this historic Hotel. We also sat out back in the wooden recliners to enjoy the deer resting on the lawn. Then we had lunch in the grand dining room. Everything... More

The dining room at the Hotel is not to be missed. Yes, the service is deliberate, Yes the prices are steep, Yes the food can be a bit uneven, Yes, the wine list is extensive & pricey, but all that pales to the magnificence of the Room & the richness of the history there. Make a reservation & indulge yourself... More

Great to browse around, shop, and most of all, sit around the fire with a good book or card game. No need to stay overnight, but must sit for a meal if you can.

The Ahwahnee Hotel is a beautiful landmark. We were able to take a historical tour and the ranger was very knowledgeable. It is expensive and some of the rooms are dated but there were renovations in process.
