We spent one night here -- all that we could afford since it is quite pricey -- but it was perfect. A great experience. The food is high average. We had 3 meals there. The service was better than the quality of the food. (On Sunday evening, they were "out" of French Onion Soup at 6:15...) Not an exciting menu... More

We visited during a rainy day in the valley (couldn't afford to stay here). This is a stunning structure and we loved visiting the public spaces. Impressive fireplaces, lovely rooms and views.

Recently, we returned to Yosemite Port for a road trip. I forgot how stunning Yosemite's is especially at this time of year with a number of waterfalls gushing over the granite walls of the mountains. By far the best place to stay; have a lunch/dinner; or even just cocktails in Yosemite Valley is the majestic lodge. The Hotel is celebrating... More

This well known lodge is a wonderful place for a hot chocolate beside a roaring fire, or a G&T. Spent a pleasant couple of hours with the latter, watching a wedding party freeze outside. Great location. Expensive!

We are so fortunate to be able to visit this gorgeous hotel at least once a year. Each time we're there we experience the most gracious service by really well trained staff. And, each year we discover something new about the hotel or meet another extraordinary member of the staff. This year is was Susan, the captain in the dining... More

I have always loved this hotel since first setting eyes on it in the 1970's. It is really remarkable and a place to enjoy. I love the Indian motifs and stained glass window. The great lounge with its super, huge fireplaces are a must to enjoy. They serve tea and cookies in the afternoon for the guests. Don't miss breakfast... More

This hotel was built in 1927 with stone, wood and cement. It is the oldest thing in Yosemite and it survived the floods and fires. The architecture is not to be missed

You must stop and tour the hotel -- even if you cannot afford staying here. The price is really high now but it is work walking around the lobby. The fireplaces are so cool. Maybe get an 'expensive dinner'. Very nice place

Returned here for the Christmas Bracebridge dinner. The grounds are stunning any time of the year, but the winter snow added a wonderland aura. The Hotel still looks amazing - it truly is a landmark. Can't say enough about the Bracebridge dinner show - everything regarding the meal and production was absolutely top-notch. Bucket-list item checked off
