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.

We did not stay here but stopped here a few times for drinks and snacks it's expensive but worth it. Next time we will definitely eat here and in my dreams have a suite here !

Staff is as nice as can be, but the chef's holiday event at the far end of the great room was noisy and distracting to other visitors. Somehow, the beauty of this place is lost in the noise and people traipsing back and forth in their clunky high heeled boots for this event. Why do women have to "whoop" loudly?... More

Even in a year without winter snow the Hotel is warm and friendly. The fires in the fireplaces and the atmosphere of the place is very old world and comfortable. A great time.

If you can't afford to stay here, go for breakfast instead. The dining room is worth the price and the food is excellent! We always order eggs benedict. They are the best I have ever had.

This hotel is amazing. My wife and I visited here to have some dinner(over priced) and we ended the night by enjoying this amazing landmark. What wonderful energy. Grab a book and relax by the bar.

I didn't stay at the Ahwahnee Hotel as I couldn't get a booking however we did visit there. The place is very spacious and the main dining room is huge and smells strongly of log fires. We looked around the hotel and found it had so much atmosphere and history attached to it. We had lunch in the dining room... More

Magnificent, majestic rooms where the fireplaces could serve as a bedroom. The dinning hall, solarium and grand hall are very cozy.

Went for afternoon drinks to sit in the great hall with fireplaces to relax and read. Wouldn't give us code for wifi because we weren't staying at the hotel.

So, save money and overnight elsewhere! Stop in and look around as you can't help but admire this hotel and history. A variety of room types to choose from. On our visit, 400.00 was the least expensive rate
