We finally stayed on the 6th floor and the views were great. We were in rooms 601 and the sun proch, 603. The views were fantastic during our stay, occassionally cloudy, occasionally sunny. The pull out sofa bed in 603 needs the mattress replaced as you can feel the springs. We had the mattress replaced in room 601 during our... More

This venue is of great historical significance and has a very well managed hotel. The Brace bridge dinner is unique and the park is magnificent The significance of the history cab only be appreciated after having a first hand experience.

Environment spectacular, top notch hospitality and the winter programs very enjoyable and memorable. I'd suggest every visitor take the tour, or read the Ahwanee book in the room. It is full of stories and neat factoids about the property. This was our second visit and will not be our last. We've been going to Yosemite for years and this was... More

Just a wonderful thing to do - beautiful location, outstanding accomodations, nicest and most professional staff, the Bracebridge is really unique and fun. We love the Ahwahnee - have been coming here since the 1980's and have never been disappointed. It is the epitome of National Park elegance.

This was excellent for the entertainment that kept us interested and entertained for 4 hours. Beautiful dining room, beautifully decorated for the season. Also the concert the night before with the same entertainers that were in the Bracebridge dinner was excellent too.

Classic national park lodge -- very touristy atmosphere--but, here's a secret--avoid amateurish and excruciatingly slow service in the great hall dining room--and try room service. We discovered the food and service were superior by far to the dining room--we were lucky to have the great and magnificent Library Suite on the 6th floor (with working fireplace) and had a wonderful,...

The Ahwahnee was a truly memorable experience for my husband and I and our two children. The history, the location and the service all blend together to make great memories. Our room looked out at Half Dome.

The traditional Bracebridge Dinner at the Ahwahnee Lodge is something that everyone should do at least once in their lifetime. Our experience was nothing short of excellent. The staff at the lodge are professional and very friendly. Valet parking is complementary and guests are greeted graciously every time they enter and exit the property.

Our cabin at the Awanhee was a perfect relaxing break with mister 5. Amazing location and magical to wake to the mountain views. We would definitely visit again. Breakfast was lovely and the tea and cookies in the afternoon a nice touch but it would have been great to be able to get a coffee or hot chocolate during the... More

A first class hotel in a spectacular setting. Stay a while and enjoy nature. We stayed here to attend the Bracebridge Dinner and thoroughly enjoyed the entertainment. The lodge has a wonderful Yosemite National Park history. Be sure to take the tour!
