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.

"Best Food In All Yosemite"
We had a very good window seats for lunch. Boysenberry pie was excellent for a berry pie. The Italian sodas looked good. I didn't have one but I wished I did. I had the vegetarian wrap with potato salad and French onion soup. Very good dining experience.
Spent a week in Yosemite for 10 summers in a row growing up and always wanted to stay at the Ahwahnee (Majestic). Fast forward 20+ years and my wife surprised me with a weekend getaway. Though we liked the grounds, the customer service and staff were a big let down. From the valet upon arrival to the front desk staff to the waiters at the dining room, we were shocked by the mediocre service. Our hotel room had a wonderful view, but was basic. When departing, the valet brought our car and neither the valet nor the bellman offered or tried to load our bags. I am glad we finally stayed at a dream getaway, but will not return. The hotel is worthy of 2-3 stars at most.
"Enjoy the public spaces"
I have wanted to stay at what used to be the Ahwahnee Hotel and is now re-named the Majestic Yosemite Hotel for many years. The building has a great location and spectacular craftsman style architecture. The ground floor public spaces are gorgeous. There are many places to relax and enjoy the view and serenity. The hotel offers guests some wonderful touches such as coffee and tea in the bar in the mornings, and cookies and tea in a lounge from 4-5pm. They offer an informative hotel tour most afternoons as well as naturalist led tours of the grounds.The convenient Yosemite shuttle stops outside the door. The valet parking was free and fast. The main dining room is beautiful and the food is excellent. One can also eat in the bar or outside at tables overlooking the lawn from 11am-11pm. We had a spacious room with a wonderful view of the Yosemite Falls. The rooms are in need of updating which the hotel says they will complete by the end of 2017. Unfortunately they cannot add sound-proofing to the room walls because the hotel has Historic Landmark status. We were kept up at night and woken up at 6:45am by our next door neighbors. The bed and pillows were not comfortable. The shower was great however.
"For the price it is poor. Without the cost it is merely 3*"
We booked the hotel for the location and had read many reviews saying it was overpriced, however we were still shocked at how poor the hotel was. Having booked a room almost a year in advance we requested a quiet room. We were given a room on the fourth floor. When we entered the room, we noticed that the cleaners had left a bottle of cleaning fluid on the coffee table. We started unpacking and immediately heard voices coming from the room next door. The room had an adjoining door and there was absolutely no sound proofing. It was as if the people in the adjoining room were in the same room and they were speaking at normal volumes. Having booked for four nights and with plans to do a lot of hiking, we expected to at least get a goods night's sleep for $550 per night. Clearly this wasn't going to happen. We went straight back to reception and asked to be moved to a quiet room. The guy on reception said the hotel was fully booked and no other rooms were available. We asked for the manager. The manager appeared and we explained the issue. He promptly told us he had never had any complaints about the soundproofing and would speak to the people in the adjoining room. When we explained that it was not their fault and that they were speaking at a normal level, he still insisted he should speak to them. At this point we insisted we be moved and he headed out the back to sort something out. He returned about 10 minutes later with the key to a room in the corner of the second floor. We repacked and moved to the new room that had no adjoining door. It was dark and had a view of the hotel roof but at least it was quiet. Ironically on the table in the room there was a note about the hotel which had a section on the hotel being old and a comment that the soundproofing was acknowledged as being a problem but due the the age of the hotel nothing could be done about it. Interestingly, the manager knew nothing about the soundproofing issues when we spoke to him yet it is explained in the room leaflet? After we had settled in to the room someone tried to open the door. We opened it to find our room had been given to someone else who was shocked to find it already occupied. Unsurprisingly he wasn't too happy and went back to reception to sort out the mix up. There are many historic hotels and buildings around the world that have been able to find solutions to sound-proofing so it is more likely that the Majestic is just using this as an excuse. So what can you expect for $550 a night. The outside of the hotel looks good. But inside, everything needs updating. A tired, dated room with the shower handle hanging off. Old worn carpet and tatty communal areas with yellowing walls. Doors that have been repainted so many times they don't close properly. The room had not been dusted in an eternity and we had to clean the surfaces with toilet paper as they were covered in dust. Over the four day stay the bed was made, the bins emptied and shampoo and soap replenished. Rather than receiving 5 bars of soap we would have liked to have had the bathroom cleaned and the carpets vacuumed, rather than looking at the same dirt left from our hiking shoes and toothpaste stains on the taps for four days. What you are paying for is the location of this hotel but there is no excuse for the poor standards and the price is quite frankly a rip off. We also stayed at the Wuksachi Lodge in Sequoia and the Ranch at Death Valley. Both these properties are remotely located and are slightly tired and require updating but offer far better value at less than half the price of the Majestic. This hotel needs to be updated and run by a hotel chain that are capable of running what should be a world class hotel in a world class location.
Had an amazing 3 night stay in the cottages. Truly fell in love with this place. I've never had such comforts. Felt more like a temporary home. Staff were phenomenal from the dining room to the front desk to the valet attendants. The hotel is jaw dropping. Staying here truly enhanced our Yosemite National Park experience. Already dreaming of when I can visit again.
