I don't think I have ever been in a more beautiful setting at a hotel. While the hotel is a bit dated in the rooms the public areas all offer one spectacular view after another. Waking up and looking out of the window at the mountains was a once in a lifetime treat for my family. This hotel is in... More

We went because my 90 yr old friend had this on her "bucket list"! The staff, accommodations, weather and blooming Dogwoods made it a memory for ever! We dined at the Queens Table in the Alcove in the Dining Room....phenomenal experience!

The views are breathtaking and feeling is impressive eating in the big dining room. You feel regal just being there. The service was excellent and accommodating--we were a large group of 9 with a service dog. However, the food was just OK, considering the prices. We had a nice time. Their corkage fee for BYOB was very steep ($30/bottle) so... More

This is a beautiful, nostalgic lodge amidst the majesty of Yosemite National Park. A bit pricey, but worth it if it's your first visit or a special occasion. We stayed in one of the cottages on the grounds. It was comfortable and quiet.

The service and the staff were friendly and helpful, however the rooms and amenities does not justify the high price. The exterior of the hotel looks amazing but as you walk in the interior seems outdated, the interior hallways and the room seem as though they haven't been updated in 30 years.

It was our first but not last trip to The Ahwahnee. The hotel is truly special, great location , service, settings. The restaurant alone is worth the stay. The settings are magical. Free coffee and hot chocolate in the morning and then tea and cookie time in the afternoon. Heaven!

You're overpaying, of course, but a night at the Ahwahnee is a nice way to celebrate a birthday with a spouse or significant other. The fact that the hotel usually is sold out well in advance, despite the high prices, suggests to me that the park service should consider a long-term land lease to a competitor firm that could build...

We spent three days at the Ahwahnee hotel in a feature room and we really enjoyed our entire stay. We would have preferred a cottage as we had an infant and the extra space would have been nice but they were sold out. The service is very good and all of the staff was extremely friendly, kind, and courteous. We... More

The building is magnificent and if you are fortunate enough to stay there. do. The location could not be better, most of the staff is wonderful. There are no words to describe Yosemite. The dining room is beautiful, not too $$$ but food and selection only fair, it's all about the beauty that surrounds you.
