Awesome hotel

We were able to see a couple of the rooms that have always been blocked off in the past. This hotel is beautifully decorated with historic, period furniture. Just wonderful

This hotel is beautiful. We went to a wedding, which was out on a grass null, with the beauty of Yosemite surrounding it. The food was some of the best that I have had. Everything was fresh, handmade, and tasted great. It was a surreal setting.

It is hard to believe that this hotel is not made of wood but of stone and concrete. Wonderful wedding venue.

The Ahwahnee has a beautiful setting, but the rooms need some work. Our carpet was stained - and for as much as you pay, they should fix that! However, we were glad to be able to stay in the park, and the views from the restaurant were great.

So great to stop on patio and relax. Got to meet and speak with Dudley who played piano in the dining room here for over 40 years. Wow! That was a great chat over drinks.

It was so neat seeing this beautiful hotel that was still in wonderful condition from being built in 1927! The lobby and room with the huge fireplace were beautiful.

They are in the process of restoring the original painted stenciling in the grand hall on the beams that was painted over in the 40s when the site was a Navy Hospital (surprising a Navy Hospital in the middle of nowhere and 4 hours from the closest port.

This is one of the most spectacular of the National Park lodges. Delaware North does an excellent job of stewardship in the running of this hotel. Hugh dining area and public rooms. Great restaurant. Rooms with great views. Though it is about time for the Park Service to do some tree trimming and removal to keep the iconic views for... More

The Ahwanhnee is a 88 year old wonderful hotel build by our National Park Service in the beautiful Yosemite valley. It is surrounded by God's gift to humanity. Over the years I have had the pleasure of visiting Christmas Holidays, the time of autumn colors and in the summer cool. Each season offers its own special attractions. Snowshoeing and the... More

It is truly one of the beautiful grand lodges of the National Parks System. They have a great gift shop with special Ahwahnee items offered. Check out the elevator to the ladies' restroom - it is amazing! The lobby is beautiful with huge fireplaces, great architecture.
