Always wanted to stay at this beautiful lodge and I was not disappointed. Wandering the hotel's halls is an art history lesson! Staying in one of the cottages by the Merced was quiet and charming and well away from the construction in the hotel bar.Watching the sun rise and set on the walls of granite that create a sanctuary for...

The Majestic Yosemite Hotel is an iconic landmark hotel with prime real estate in the heart of fantastical Yosemite. The location was 5 star as it is in the shadows of surreal beauty. A visit here is magical. Apparently, working at the Majestic is not. The reason I give this hotel 3 stars overall is that the staff seem absolutely... More

Our family of 4 stayed here for 3 nights. The hotel is lovely. We did the hotel tour which runs at 4pm each day and is very interesting (also free). Nice touches of tea and cookies in the afternoon and morning drinks too. Lovely public rooms and just beautiful. We had one problem with my son being ill after a... More

I booked 2 nights here 10 months ago to celebrate my 60th birthday. Over the last 10 months after reading so many mixed reviews I felt that perhaps I should have changed my plans. I am so glad i didn't ! LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION. My room had an excellent view of El Capitan; the room was spacious bathroom well equipped... More

I had dreamed when I was a young man that one day I would come back to Yosemite and stay at the posh Ahwahnee Lodge. For my 50th birthday I did just that, renting one of the private cabins. The cabin, the fireplace, the dinner....all were spectacular. Once in a lifetime experience in the most majestic national park in America.

We stayed here for about four nights last June. The room we had did not have much of a view and was dark, which is good if you want to sleep late. The only restaurant in the hotel itself is fine dining. In order to get something else you have to go for a long walk or short drive. The... More

However our dining experience got off to a rocky start.....we tried to make a reservation for 7:30 and were told that the bookings were full but we could stand in line and get... More

The Ahwanee hotel or the Majestic Yosemite hotel is one of a kind hotel. It has lot of history and it is conveniently located within the Yosemite National park. We initially had a cabin with king size bed but due to AC malfunction we were upgraded to a suite for our first night. The regular rooms are decent size with... More

We stayed here for 3 nights while at Yosemite NP. Yes, it's expensive but the service from the staff is terrific. We stayed in a Classic 2 double bed room. We had lots of space, large enough closet to put our (3) suitcases and other bags for storage. The couch also pulled out into a single sized bed if needed.... More

Were the Majestic to advertise as "an excellent motel inside of a National Historic Landmark" building, or as "cabin quality rooms inside of historic structure" consumers would be better positioned to estimate whether the exorbitant cost for staying at the hotel is worth the value. Instead Majestic touts itself as "Yosemite’s only AAA Four-Diamond hotel—an honor bestowed only on the... More
