Attended a food/wine event at the Awhanee - so well organized and the accommodations were wonderful. We loved the views from our room and the dining room was spectacular. Food at the gala dinner was top-notch and served very elegantly.

This is a luxury hotel, but the most important thing about it is its location in Yosemite. My room had a view of Half Dome! I just was there in November and the park was lovely - autumn leaves and no crowds. The dining room of the Ahwanee is a beautiful space with excellent food and the bar is a... More

We travel to the Ahwahnee yearly to attend the Vintner's Holiday package and love being there. The accommodations are fine, the access to hiking, biking, etc. make for a wonderful experience. Staff is attentive to our needs and respond quickly to our requests. Without question we will return again.

We love staying at the Ahwahnee. It's a grand hotel in the old style and is absolutely magnificent. We were here in mid-November in the height of fall, when the leaves turn yellow and red; it's beautiful. This is the best time to come, when the tourists from summer are away, and you can enjoy the national park at its... More

Excellent accommodations, staff, atmosphere, food and beverage. This was our fourth trip and will return many more times to come. If you haven't stayed at the Ahawahnee you are truly missing one of the great travel experiences in life.

The Ahwahnee Hotel is truly a gem among vacation spots - a treat from an almost bygone standard. It's location inside Yosemite National Park, on the valley floor, is SPECTACULAR. There are many walks, hikes, and one of a kind vistas to impress, relax and inspire you. The staff of this hotel is exceptional - they truly know how to... More

My first time at the Ahwanee. Beautiful place. Will go back for sure. Was there for the Vintner's Holiday package. Great program and wine! Gala dinner was awesome. The park was relatively empty. Had some time for great short hikes as well.

After many trips to Yosemite, the Ahwahnee never disappoints. It is charming, rustic, wonderful any season, but winter and fall are best. The "Vintner's Holiday" for wine lovers, and the "Chef's Holiday" for foodies are a must. An experience not to be missed. A wonderful experience, always.

We had a great time at the Ahwahnee, enjoying wonderful scenery, great friends, and excellent food and wine. We will repeat this experience many times in the future. The meadow right next to the hotel, with views of halfdome and the surrounding granite mountains, is truly magical.

This location is central to the sights you want to see. Our hotel room had a view of Yosemite falls. As with most park accommodations, the room was not very modern but it was clean and the plumbing worked fine. The bed was comfortable. The hotel's main restaurant was quite good. There is a shuttle bus to take you to... More
