Over Majestic Yosemite Hotel
De granieten façade, de hoge houten plafonds, de enorme stenen haarden en de inheemse kunstvoorwerpen bepalen de sfeer waarin ook Oosterse invloeden en Art Deco verwerkt zijn. De sfeervolle kamers zijn niet overdreven luxe, maar wel netjes ingericht in een 'Native American Style'. Vergeet u niet om een tafel te reserveren in het hotelrestaurant, de Ahwahnee Dining Room. Vanuit dit restaurant heeft u door de metershoge ramen een fantastisch uitzicht.

Het indrukwekkende Yosemite National Park, zo'n 250 kilometer ten oosten van San Francisco in het midden van de Sierra Nevada, is ongetwijfeld een van de absolute toppers tijdens uw rondreis West-Amerika.
I just want to say that anyone that knows the history of Yosemite will enjoy this hotel. Itâ€™s a historical property that tells a story. Iâ€™ve had the pleasure of staying here several times. In the summer I prefer staying in the cottages. The classic cottage is perfect for families. You can just open the door and let the kids run. However, this time around its winter so we decided to stay in the actual hotel. We were lucky enough to stay in a beautifully newly renovated Jr Suite. The decor is quite nice. Are the walls thin, yes, but itâ€™s a historic hotel and the historical society will not allow major changes. Maybe itâ€™s because we came off season or because we were at the end of the first floor but our room was quite peaceful. Their great room and fireplace in the main part of the hotel is incredible and inviting. A place to sit with the kids or grab a glass of champagne with your significant other. The grounds are incredible. Everywhere you look is breath taking. Just look up and youâ€™ll be amazed. The reality is, there are not many places to stay in Yosemite Valley. You are going to pay a premium to stay here. For me, the price of staying in Yosemite, a place in which every window you look out, you see the beauty and magic of this valley is worth the price. Staying here is an experience.
"I wanted to love it"
Our first visit under new management. We've stayed at the Ahwahnee and also did a wonderful Bracebridge so this place is not new to us. However, what a disappointment this new management is! First, kudos to the wonderful daytime concierge whose name I can't recall but was blonde with glasses. GREAT. Same with valets. The room was like a nice 3 star but priced like a 5 star. Which is always a problem. The walls were so thin I could hear the group of girls next door giggle and play mah jong till 1am--smashing tiles, high pitched giggles... and the next night a heavily snoring guy who'd checked in kept us up. We could hear every snort. Umm. $550? Are you serious? The dining room menu left something to be desired. Nothing distinctive and not very good. Overpriced fro the quality of the food. Insufficient variety. The service was terrible! And explain why we'd see an almost completely empty dining room and yet the maitre d made us wait 15 minutes before being seated...in an empty dining room? And then the pretentious dress code that was not enforced--in a national park? No. A $55 brunch? Seriously? No. And when heard there was afternoon tea we were excited--and that's what it was. Tea. and a cookie. Seriously? Couldn't have tea in the large reception room, real tea? Morning coffee was appreciated as no coffee makers in room. But again. Coffee on the mezzanine, Period. Insufficient seating up there, too. At the bar I felt like something different and ordered a Brandy Alexander. It was thin--I think it was made with nonfat milk. Or maybe water and powder. Just awful. Sent it back. Dakota took us on what was called a "Night Prowl". His presentation style seemed like maybe he'd had one too many Red Bulls --just not adult-oriented--and the night event really was more geared for kids but not promoted that way. Kind of a silly event. Now, here's the problem. We want to come back in the fall with other friends and this is the best hotel in the Valley. And it's tired. With mediocre, overly priced food served poorly. Are we willing to pay so much for so little, because of the location? That is the question. Maybe not. If you're charging that much the guest experience needs to be a whole lot better. Yes, we're a captive audience. But still. Terribly disappointed.
"Old hotel, what service ? "
My wife & I were visiting USA from 25/11/17 to 16/12/17, after around 4 years. We drove from SFO airport to Majestic Yosemite Hotel for around 5 hours, arriving at the property at around 11.45 pm, it was very cold too, roads & lights towards the last 1 hour were very bad. On arrival at the Hotel on 9/12/17 for 2 night stay, we parked & took our bags to the hotel reception ( saw signs bears smell food & approach cars & humans). Luckily there was somebody to check us in, & gave us the keys & map to cold chalet room outside & close to main building. It was indeed a cold reception check in, We had to walk on own in the dark cold night looking for our room. Like a motel room check in. With difficulty we found the room, No bears we saw, We were shocked when we entered the room, it was so cold & dark, size of the room was fairly good. Next day, we met the lady manager at the reception, she was very good & helpful, helped us to book tour too, & we wanted to change the room to the main building, she took us to the 4th or 5th to showed us a regular warmer room, which we agreed to move, however later on we met another gentleman maybe in charge of Maintenance, outside our chalet room, he got us an extra portable heater for the chalet room. So we decided to stay in the same room. Service wise Hotel is no good, they need to improve a lot, for a property from 1920s they need to upgrade too as they were charging us 7 star prices for so called 5 star Hotel. I would rate it 2-3 stars only. We left after 2 days stay, superb park to visit, also it was my wifeâ€™s turn to drive to San Francisco City, as she always drives fast, we got a speeding ticket too, first time in our life in the USA, they s mail us the ticket to Dubai, it arrived after 45 days & we paid the fine on line immediately. After all, it was good experience indeed.
"Bucket list type of Place"
We stayed 2 nights at the Majestic (Awahnee) during an abnormally warm/perfect weather February. Its a beautiful older building in a stunning location. Yes as others have stated the hotel is older, they are remodeling rooms, but our room was not a remodeled room and had paint peeling on the edges, but I I expected that for an older hotel that really is a historic landmark. You pay the 5 star prices for the location, history and warm welcome. Pro's: Self parking or free Valet: Fast Valet when we stayed and although its free you should tip a couple bucks. Easy Check in Complimentary Tea and cookies from 4 to 5 everyday Dining in the main dining hall is gorgeous! is it over priced for what you get? yes Would I do it again knowing that? Yes! Yosemite has tourists hence the tourist prices. Nothing abnormal. Comfortable beds Location; Beautiful view right at the bottom of Half Dome and easy free shuttle service all around the park Cons: Thin Walls Don't flush the toilet when someone is using the shower unless you are mad at them We like our room cool temperature wise and since it was suppose to be winter that day the hotel was set on the heat setting (old hotel so its either heat setting or ac for the whole hotel) so it got a little warm for us but not unbearable So why the 4 star rating? Because I expected all that even at the $400 dollar a night off season price. You are paying 5 star prices for the Location and History and I recommend you stay here at least once in your life.
"Majestically Poor Service, Noisy Rooms, Pricey Hotel Needs Facelift"
Majestic Hotel over the yrs has become less & less regal. Yes, its all about the location; Yosemite is the most beautiful park location in the world but this hotel rides on its historical reputation and clearly misses the hospitality services mark. The staff gives the same tired appearance as the aged structure; they are not well polished. The food quality at breakfast, lunch and dinner is inferior [Sunday buffet is high, $55], the chairs in the dining room are probably the same ones when Queen Elizabeth visited in the early 1980s, time for a refresh? and the rooms are small & noisy. Building interiors/exteriors need a refresh; its looking shabby and weather worn. Since built in the early 1900s, the rooms are small which can be overlooked but they are terribly noisy. Overflow noise from guests on either side of my room was very audible; and in many instances, what people do in their own rooms is their own business but when their private activities are overheard due to adjoining doors, its more than TMI... its just awful. Bathrooms are very small; again, due to age and the bathroom door blocks the toilet; you have to enter the bathroom, then close the door to use the toilet [I was traveling solo]. Its not a big deal but it gives you perspective on the small size of bathrooms. All this for $550 a night, I'm expecting more! My next visit, I will be looking into other lodging in the valley. Thank you.
