We have stayed at all the historic national park hotels but this one, so we decided to splurge this year and stay at the Ahwahnee. A standard room is about $500/night, so it was definitely a splurge. The hotel is full of history, the dining room food is fabulous, and the amenities are lovely (tea in Great Lounge in the afternoon, morning coffee available until 11 in the mezzanine), but the room was a disappointment. The view was gorgeous (we could see Upper Yosemite Falls from out window), but they were having trouble with their ventilation system and our room heated to 80 degrees each night, making it hard to sleep. Even with the windows open (it was in the 40s overnight) the room stayed hot. So next time we go to Yosemite we will eat at the Ahwahnee, but not stay there.
