Just stayed 2 nights at the Ahwahnee - very disappointed. Let me start with the good. The valet upon arrival was nice, friendly and informative. Margarita at the front desk was very pleasant. The rest is not good. For $550 plus a night (with tax), I expect rooms to be spacious, clean and kept up. My room was small, had... More

This is truly one of the most incredible places I have ever stayed. I have always loved Yosemite and to add a stay at The Ahwahnee made it truly memorable. My family and I loved the fact that we were so close to nature but still had modern amenities. Wonderful experience for the kids!

A little dated, rooms are dark and musty, overpriced for the product. We didn't try the "Dining Room" although Sunday Brunch is supposed to be great, but we weren't there during a weekend. The bar/lunch room has ok food, but nothing high quality. Front desk staff appeared to be a bit aloof. Concierge was terrific, and so were the bellhops... More

I stayed at the Ahwahnee last week during the peak summer. There was people everywhere in Yosemite but when you are in the Ahwahnee it did not feel that way. Somehow just the layout of the interior and the exterior made it very spacious. It's definitely one of those "you must do it once" kind of accommodation.

What an amazing lodge! It had all the charm of the orinigal resort with still modern ammenities. The room had a gorgeous view and was huge! Even the doors seemed original. But so clean and cozy. Staff was top notch! Room service was very good and hot and reasonably priced. We got really lucky getting a cancellation last minute.

This hotel is the perfect place to stay when visiting Yosemite. You can walk out the door and start walking several great trails. The shuttle buses take you everywhere too and there is a stop right in front of the hotel. The Hotel feels like you went back to the 1930's (in a good way!). The restaurant is great for... More

beautiful property! We can't wait to return. Rustic charm in the heart of Yosemite. You can not beat the location. Don't miss dinner in the dinning room. We experienced some personal service. I wish the gift shop had more exclusive items.

We stayed in a "classic" room. The bathroom was small, the closet was quaint, the view of the Falls was magnificent!! This hotel was, after all, built in 1927. Eating dinner in the dining room is a must do--you cannot believe it until you've experienced it -- the early birds get the window seats. Probably best to park your car... More

Open the windows in your room before going to bed and enjoy the smells and quiet. Get up early and experience the peacefulness before the crowds start coming. We really enjoyed the breakfast buffet and what was also nice is that we were not bombarded with music during the meals.

From the moment one enters The Ahwahnee peace & serenity are the norm. The setting in Yosemite National Park made me feel like i was walking into a sacred, hallowed sanctuary. The staff is phenomenal-so gracious & courteous. The Ahwahnee boast native American decor & rustic charm. The massive common areas are truly spectacular. Grand views are offered from every... More
