This was excellent for the entertainment that kept us interested and entertained for 4 hours. Beautiful dining room, beautifully decorated for the season. Also the concert the night before with the same entertainers that were in the Bracebridge dinner was excellent too.

Classic national park lodge -- very touristy atmosphere--but, here's a secret--avoid amateurish and excruciatingly slow service in the great hall dining room--and try room service. We discovered the food and service were superior by far to the dining room--we were lucky to have the great and magnificent Library Suite on the 6th floor (with working fireplace) and had a wonderful,...

The Ahwahnee was a truly memorable experience for my husband and I and our two children. The history, the location and the service all blend together to make great memories. Our room looked out at Half Dome.

The traditional Bracebridge Dinner at the Ahwahnee Lodge is something that everyone should do at least once in their lifetime. Our experience was nothing short of excellent. The staff at the lodge are professional and very friendly. Valet parking is complementary and guests are greeted graciously every time they enter and exit the property.

Our cabin at the Awanhee was a perfect relaxing break with mister 5. Amazing location and magical to wake to the mountain views. We would definitely visit again. Breakfast was lovely and the tea and cookies in the afternoon a nice touch but it would have been great to be able to get a coffee or hot chocolate during the...

A first class hotel in a spectacular setting. Stay a while and enjoy nature. We stayed here to attend the Bracebridge Dinner and thoroughly enjoyed the entertainment. The lodge has a wonderful Yosemite National Park history. Be sure to take the tour!

This classic old hotel has been thoroughly updated to modern standards while maintaining all of its original charm. It is quite pricy, but it is worth the splurge. A stay here should be on everyone's "bucket list".

The Ahwahnee is in a class by itself in a surrounding for which there is no equal. This was not our first visit to this beautiful hotel. However, it was the Bracebridge Dinner that brought us here this time. What a spectacular event. We recommend it highly. You will not be disappointed. Staff is also friendly and attentive. And, of...

The Bracebridge Dinner is wonderful and the Ahwahnee dining room is one of the great rooms in the world, located in spectacular Yosemite. Just don't go in the height of summer if you can avoid it because the park becomes overcrowded.

The Ahwahnee is beautiful and comfortable. The moonlight on the granite cliffs is spectacular. We've been coming annually for 35 years. It is always different, but always spectacularly beautiful. Some people go to Europe - we go to the Ahwahnee.
