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.
"Luxurious hotel it is not."
I have stayed in some heritage hotels in Asia before, with rooms that are nicely furnished, ie. cozy, upmarket, and equipped with modern amenities. This is definitely not one of them. For around USD500 a night and armed with AAA four diamond rating, I would have expected the room to be of a higher standard and not so budget. The exterior facade and common areas (lounge, bar, restaurant, etc) are however beautiful. So much history here. Service standard are just ordinary and not exceptional. The reception/ concierge staff are helpful and friendly. Having said that, we arrived in late afternoon after a 5 hours drive from San Francisco. Failing to secure a dinner reservation at the only restaurant in the hotel, we ended up on the wait list, we sat outside the restaurant and waited for almost 2 hours before being invited into its impressive "hull" (literally). No one told us at the point of reservation that advance booking is recommended if you are arriving late. During the wait, we repeatedly checked with the restaurant staff for updates and told them our 2 kids were extremely hungry but were advised to just wait. No staff offered us alternatives. Some bread or a cup of hot chocolate, while we waited, would have been a nice gesture that truly reflects service excellence befitting of such a renowned establishment. Yosemite National Park is however such a gem and we thoroughly enjoyed our 3 days and 2 nights there, we did 2 hikes and they were both excellent, so it kind of compensated for the above. I would give the Park an excellent rating but can't accord the same to the hotel, which is really overpriced for what it has to offer. I may opt to stay at Yosemite Valley Lodge next time but we will definitely be staying in the expensive Valley.
"Power outage upgrade to Ahwahnee / Majestic Yosemite Hotel"
First, I feel that it's only fair to disclose that we were upgraded from a different property to the Ahwahnee/ Majestic because of a power outage. The Ahwahnee has a generator/ backup power source and therefore was not impacted by the valley-wide outage. Which is something to note if you are traveling with any special needs. That said, we did consider a stay at the hotel as part of our trip. We chose to stay at a different hotel in the park because we thought that the room accommodations (not the hotel accommodations) would be on par. There is no argument, the Ahwahnee/ Majestic is THE standard for grand hotels in the Yosemite valley. However, the first floor is the best floor. Yes, the rooms are nice but, in my opinion are not extraordinary. All of that said, it is a beautiful destination, and I feel fortunate to have stayed there. If you want the experience of staying in THIS hotel, it's absolutely worth it. The last point, the other hotels are close to the Yosemite Village. If you are on the fence about where to stay and the current market rates, either hotel will suit your needs and be a wonderful place to rest your head. And let's be honest, how much time do you really expect to spend in your hotel room?
"Majestic Ahwahnee "
Travel in time empowered by the majesty of Yosemite National Park. Apart from a name change, little else differs at this historic hotel. The sense of nostalgia within the vast dining hall harks back to a grander time where dinner is an occasion of a scale equal to your surrounds. Bedrooms are simple and comfortable with modern facilities. This hotel is all about location, tradition and history.
We stayed here as part of our tour of Yosemite. WOW...staying in the park makes life easy. This hotel is historic and has so much character. The grounds are spectacular. You can sit outside and enjoy a beverage and the view. There are walking paths on the property also. Our room was large with a comfortable bed. Bathroom small as with any historic property. Everything clean! Be sure to check out the dining room. It is unbelievable and the food is good too.
"Amazing "grand dame" hotel"
This is a very beautiful "grand dame" of hotels in an amazing spot. the views from the hotel and the rooms are awesome. The hotel is very "old school" and does not have all of the modern amenities. We stayed in the "Library Suite" (it was the only room available when we made our last minute reservation) which was originally part of the proprietors' suite. Lots of wood paneling -- a blast from the past. I will not give it all "amazing" ratings -- because those are reserved for places like an Aman. It is not a slight against this hotel that it doe snot get the very best of ratings from me.
