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.

"Majestic building, majestic place"
In 1949 my parents first brought me to Yosemite and I along with my family have returned every year since: (Dad died at 100 just weeks ago, having not been up to this year's visit). When my European friends ask what they should see while visiting the States, I recommend Yosemite and what was once the Ahwahnee Hotel as being the number one sight(s). Along with the Greenbrier (WV), the Breakers (FL), Hotel del Coronado (CA) the Grand Hotel on Mackinac Island (MI), and the Plaza (NYC) the Majestic is uniquely American in style and in its being built to harmonize with an awesome American setting. What some visitors have observed about the run down state of the carpets and the need for more attentive restoration is true but the overall grandeur of the building and its public rooms dwarfs these flaws. The dining room alone , especially at night, is worth the price of a stay. My grandsons love to identify the local animals in Robert Howard's Diego Rivera-like toile pente in the Mural room; I love the native American motifs of the public rooms, especially those decorating the Great lounge. The reception staff is on the ball, splurge on a porter to get your things up to the room on arrive. The higher you are in the building, the better views. Long live this national architectural treasure!
We stayed for 3 nights around July 4th. The Park was very crowded and it was a pleasure to return to our lovely room at The Majestic after a long day of hiking. It was quiet and relaxing and a world away from the chaos everywhere else. Our room had a gorgeous balcony with views of Half Dome. The staff was very friendly and helpful.
"Amazing location and grand hotel - spectacular"
This is an expensive hotel but if you can afford it, stay here. There is no better location and that is the bottom line. It has rustic old world charm that you pay for - yes the hotel rooms are in dire need of serious renovations and for the prices they charge this should have been done many moons ago. The surroundings are what you pay for. The dining room is spectacular - collared shirts thank you. You have a captive audience and the menu is suitable priced but when you are paying $600/night you have to go with the flow! As they say just do it and you will not re get it!
"Stunning building in one of the most wonderful locations on the planet, but they need to try harder on customer service"
This is a fantastic building in an awesome location, but they seem to be assuming that people will go there based solely on that. (And, given that we had to book a year in advance, they are probably right). However, the state of the furnishings is not the quality I'd expect in a hotel of this standard - the carpet in the lift was revolting, the carpet in our room was so grubby I decided not to walk round in bare feet and the single lift is woefully inadequate for the a hotel of this size. The biggest disappointment was the service in the restaurant. This is the worst example, but there were others: We were celebrating my husband's 60th birthday. He ordered a medium rare steak, having discussed at length with the waitress what that meant in terms of "pinkness". When it arrived it was well done - no sign of pink at all. We sent it back and minutes later another one arrived (we can only assume they are pre-cooked) which was also well done. We sent that one back too. After a lengthy wait the manager arrived and suggested that maybe the lighting in the room was making the steak appear more "done" than it was. Err, no. Finally, after a lengthy wait, a medium rare steak arrived. By this time I had finished my meal. So our celebration dinner had turned into him watching me eat and then me watching him eat. Very poor. The mark-up on wine prices is little short of outrageous. I know we are suffering from a poor exchange rate at the moment, but $60 or more for a very average bottle of wine is unacceptable. To sum up - however bad the service is, however tired the furnishings are, however poor value for money the hotel is, people will still go there because it is an iconic building in a stunning location. But shame on you Ahwahnee for taking advantage of people in this way.
"Exceptionally Civilized Base Camp for all things Yosemite: The Awahnee"
Imagine.. You've just returned from a 12mile hike, most of it in the wind and pouring rain, you're drenched, covered in mud and you are darn cold - You step into the lobby of the Ahwahnee, to a roaring fireplace and someone ready to bring you a cocktail. Yep, that's it, and isn't that more than enough?
