When it’s time to celebrate, no place does it quite like the Ahwahnee Hotel, formerly Yosemite’s Majestic Yosemite Hotel. It was renamed March 1, 2016 to Majestic Yosemite Hotel but regained its former name in 2019.
Built in 1927, the historic hotel is a fantastic destination if you are looking for a romantic place to bring your significant other or if you want an upscale family getaway. It’s the park’s only AAA® Four-Diamond hotel.
Rustic but elegant chandeliers hang from a 34-foot-high ceiling while floor-to-ceiling windows offer beautiful views in the dining room. Award-winning chef Percy Whatley offers a lively menu from pumpkin flan to grilled angus filet mignon. Adding to the sophistication is the sound of classical music filling the air as a professional pianist plays on the room’s piano.
The hotel offers a range of accommodations from hotel rooms to suites and cottages.
Three types of hotel rooms ensure there is something for everyone ranging from featured rooms with the most outstanding views of Yosemite’s natural wonders to classic rooms that offer views of Glacier Pioint, Yosemite Falls and Half Dome. Standard rooms, located in the rear of the hotel, offer limited views for the budget conscious.
Four hotel parlors, which are luxury suites, are available, each with their own features from a sunken living room to a grand bath.
If you are looking for more of a cottage experience, the Ahwahnee Hotel has three types of cottages available. The featured cottages are on the higher end with a fireplace and sitting area. The classic cottages have kind or double beds and are larger than the standard cottages, which come with a king bed.
