A night at the Ahwahnee, now renamed the Majestic, has been on my bucket list for years. So granted, I had high expectations. First, the setting could not be more spectacular. We could see Half Dome draped in fog from our window and another huge rock formation in the other. Breathtaking. We had both breakfast and dinner in the main...

This place is perfect. Loved sitting in front of the fireplaces with a good book. Morning tea was not lipton-I'm a tea snob and loved this! Rooms are well appointed. Had an issue with water temperature and management was on top of it-above and beyond and kind! Everyone was kind! Beautiful place and cannot wait to return.

Stayed at the Majestic Yosemite with family after heavy snow in Jan 2017. A wonderful location. Stunning views of the park under snow. The hotel is huge with cavernous areas for guests. There were many cooking exhibitions and private events going at this time of year, but still plenty of places to sit and take in the scenary. No question...

While not a lodge in the traditional sense - the Majestic fills the bill for everything you'd want in great lodging. Situated in a great spot in the valley, with excellent views. About 100 rooms and more than a dozen private cottages - lots of lodging options for every taste. Offers great dining. Great community seating area with picture with...

This place embodies everything that is wrong with the world today. The place calls itself Majestic; however, it has no shame in charging $800 a room with stained and threadbare carpets, lumpy pillows, and empty mini fridges. The bar smells like my old fraternity house. Seriously, do something about that smell. Its definitely unMajestic. And the dining room. For the...

Good afternoon Philippe C, I am disappointed to read that you feel that we embody everything that is wrong with the world today and offer my apologies for failing you during your recent visit. This is certainly not how I want our guests to feel. One should not have to experience lumpy pillows and stained and threadbare carpets. I am...

The hotel itself before the service or food is worth the cost. We were only able to stay in Yosemite for one night and I am so glad we stayed here. The building itself is truly incredible and you can feel the age and inspiration around every corner. They have a hotel tour that highlights points of history and architecture...

Our family of 4 stayed in the The Majestic Yosemite Hotel (aka Ahwahnee) during mid March. We stayed during mid March 2017. Our room was on the 3rd floor with an incredible view of Half Dome. The good: Location was incredible. This was our first trip to Yosemite, and we were thrilled to be able to stay inside the park....

First off, the view of Half Dome from our 4th floor room was stunning. I could not have asked for a better view. That was the attraction as well as the historic significance of the building. The room itself was very average and after three full days of hiking averaging 10 miles each day a hot shower would have been...

Traveled to the Majestic Hotel in Yosemite in February for a wedding and it was perfect. The weather cleared for our time there and we could hike every day, lounge in the sun and experience the Firefall event on Horse Tail Falls. We were told that given the snowfall and subsequent melt, they were experiencing waterfalls that hadn’t been seen...

The Majestic looks majestic and has a ton of potential with a great location. Unfortunately, the hotel rooms and service leave a lot to be desired. The staff was pleasant, they just were not very helpful and on several instances they provided incorrect information or contradicted each other. Upon departure, for instance, we wanted to store our bags until we...
