We were visiting Yosemite and were looking food accommodations when this one caught my eye. The Trip Advisor reviews were great. We arrived after a long day of travel and hiking in the Yosemete Valley. It was cold and damp that afternoon. When we checked in, the fireplace in the lobby was crackling and happy four was underway. Had a... More

Wonderfully relaxing turn of the 20th century atmosphere with Adirondack chairs on expansive lawns and a fine restaurant. The staff is excellent, and many have 20 or more years of experience. Tom Bopp plays piano in the lounge area Tuesday-Saturday nights and will gladly entertain requests of that great period of music from the Civil War through the mid 20th... More

Washburn Verandas were cozy and clean. Dining Room was the best of any National Park lodge in which we've stayed...excellent quality, very fast service, very friendly wait staff, fairly priced. Front desk staff was knowledgeable, friendly, warm, competent, helpful. Setting is picturesque. The only downside was the WiFi access - or lack thereof. It is restricted to the Sun Room...when...

We stayed in the Main building. Our rooms were small but the beds were extremely comfortable. We selected a room without bath, with some trepidation. The WC and shower rooms were nearby and very well maintained. In the evenings, everyone congregated in the lobbies and on the verandas. Even in the cool weather we experienced, we loved sitting on the... More

A place that is timeless, offers lots to do in a luxurious, natural and simple setting. Golf, tennis, swimming at the hotel. Hikes sites right there. The lounge is charming and has piano music, fire and cocktails for community. Food was good although the complimentary continental pastries are so so. Good coffee

As a first-time visitor to Yosemite recently, I am glad that my family and I stayed here two nights. I am also glad that we didn't stay here longer. Why? Pluses: Fantastic, cheerful staff. They are doing everything they can to make this a great place. Beautiful, serene setting. Historic, quaint premises. This place was way-over-the-top luxury in 1900 or... More

Wonderful setting in Yosemite Park. Relaxing atmosphere. Enjoyed our stay and would return again when in the area. Wifi could be improved - need more bandwidth and in-room Wifi would be great. Overall a great place to stay.

We have been coming here for 3 years. The staff is friendly, the rooms are comfortable, and the view is amazing! We love it here! This hotel is fabulous for families and large groups traveling together! There is nothing more relaxing than sitting out on the lawn in the Adirondack chairs after a day of hiking!

The Wawona was one of our best destination experiences. The age of the hotel added to its charm. The grounds are gorgeous. The staff is top quality. The food is delicious. Piano music at Happy Hour. Really nice visitor info and shop on the grounds. Service station and market very close to Wawona.
