If you love nature, photography and are in good health, this is the place to get plenty of exercise and witness up close the beauty and sounds of fast moving streams and gigantic waterfalls, etc. as you take in the sounds and water spray during your camera shoots.

Ten years ago this hotel was outstanding. This time we were disappointed. While the location is still outstanding the prices have gone up and the value gone down. Our room was ordinary. The air conditioning didn't work and the fee Wifi borders on deceptive advertisement. The WiFi only hooked up for the first hour and even then the speed was... More

The Awahnee was a fantastic place to visit. All the staff is friendly and the location is seriously AMAZING! The hotel is historical and set in the middle of some amazing mountain formations. This does mean that internet and cell phone service is spotty but seriously it doesn't hurt to be disconnected from technology and connected into the beauty of... More

Although the Ahwahnee is expensive, it is worth it for a special occasion. The staff goes the extra mile to be helpful--especially the valet service and the concierge. The food in the dining room is as excellent as I remembered it to be!

I thought this hotel would be the place to stay in the park but turns out it just was not for me. Too much history not enough substance. Pros - you get to say you stayed here. Cons - kind of isolated from the rest of the park, you need to drive or take the bus to everything else in... More

My husband and I spent 5 lovely days here in May. Our room was pleasant and clean; beds were comfortable. Only complaint was that the thermostat/temperature control on the wall did not work; fortunately, the weather was pleasant at night and we could open the windows. The lodge has a huge main dining room; make reservations in advance for dinner!... More

A wonderful location for visiting Yosemite. The hotel structure is impressive and historic...however the rooms were moldy/musty and a bit long in the tooth. needs upgrading/remodeling. During our visit the air conditioning was off, and the room was warm, and hard to cool down, even with the window open. The staff could do nothing, as either the hotel has heat... More

Many rate the hotel highly, but then some, like me, don’t. I am assuming this has a lot to do with the furnishings in your room. The check out documents show we stayed in rooms A0332S and A0330X. We took a suite at the Ahwahnee, basically two rooms at either end of the hall with a generously large common room... More

Beautiful dining room, delicious food and great entertainment for kids (and adults) with your own Etch A Sketch. Highly recommend it. New York steak cooked to perfection, crispy fries, yummy haricot verts. Don't miss it!
