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.
"Yosemite in the Fall"
First, I have to start with that Yosemite is my favorite place to vacation. That being said, you are at the mercy of National Park lodging. Over priced lodging in worn out rooms. It is a beautiful looking hotel with gorgeous grounds. The hotel has stamped cement flooring and an impressive great room with two fireplaces. They have a heated pool year round. Complimentary morning coffee and afternoon tea and cookies are available for hotel guests. The rooms are small, with carpeting and small tiled bathrooms. Our room had a view of both Half Dome and Glacier Point. It had a closet, a closet safe and a bathroom with a tub. There was also a table with two chairs, a refrigerator and a flat screen TV. If you plan to eat dinner at the hotels restaurant you need to dress according to their dress attire. Breakfast and lunch do not have any dress restrictions. There is a parking lot for hotel guests but if it is full then you have to have your car valet parked. There is a shuttle bus stop nearby so you can take that to get around the lower valley. Try going off season for better rates. Be aware that many restaurants and some sight seeing areas are closed for the winter season.
"An experience to have, but at a cost"
Did we have a nice stay? Yes, but at a cost. The room for 2 nights with taxes was a $1000, so that is much pricier than we are used to paying and for that amount did it surpass my experience in budget hotels? Pro: â€¢The toiletries in the rooms smelled so nice and there was an extra touch by having soaking salts in a cute container and a Yosemite rubber ducky that my child loved! â€¢ The old style shaped bathtub was the most comfortable for soaking in for a long time. â€¢ View from room of Yosemite Falls, even though it was barely flowing was awesome! â€¢ Sitting by the large fireplace in the lobby was relaxing and very much enjoyed. â€¢ Tea time with cookies at 4pm, make sure to have your room key on you. â€¢ A sweet front desk employee told us to come back at 5pm to get cookies since we checked in before they were ready â€¢ Apples at the front desk â€¢ The grounds were amazing and pleasant to walk around â€¢ The room was nice, with a good sized closet with robes, iron, and a nice sitting area â€¢ Had 4 pillows per bed in room â€¢ Good size refrigerator in room Cons â€¢ First front desk person that checked us in was not very friendly. â€¢ The full size beds were bouncy and not very comfortable! â€¢ Once you get into Yosemite in November, your eating options are expensive for food that is just ok. â€¢ The hotel explains that it is old and can only run either heat in the winter or AC in the summer, it was winter and our room was hot. At least the windows open and that helped. They also provided a fan that we did not use. â€¢ Customer service at front desk gave us bad information quite a few times and you just don't expect that. With all that being said, I've had much better customer service at budget hotels, but the atmosphere of being on the grounds and in the Yosemite Valley was amazing and we took beautiful photos that will always be special to me.
"Not worth the $$$- avoid"
If youve spent $425 on a hotel room, then you will have certain expectations. This will not meet them- dont do it. I paid $425, after a AAA discount, for a king standard cottage. They put us in 721 which is old, ugly, dirty carpet and next to a service entrance and parking lot- zero privacy and charm. The heater didnt work. They moved us to a king standard room 501 in the hotel for same price. Corner room and large but also old, ugly, black mildew in the tub, looking over the trash collection lot and main parking lot which you can hear all night. Carpets havent been cleaned in forever, bed is terrible. The food is crazy expensive and mediocre. Everyone is nice, but its a zoo, its old, dirty and way overpriced. If I spent $275-300, none if this would matter as much. Go to the lodge and "rough" it- you will enjoy.
This is what was good: - The hotel and surroundings are stunning - Service was excellent - We had a cottage â€œfeature roomâ€ which was huge and had a fireplace (didnâ€™t use the fireplace since it was June) - We ate in the dining room all 3 nights and the food was great On the negative side: - Wifi was weak and intermittent - Our bed was too soft - The room smelled like smoke (from the fireplace) and our clothes all smelled like smoke until we washed them after returning home. There must be a way for them to solve that problem.
Fairy-tale location, surrounded by walls of granite, the Majestic welcomed us in the chill of mid-November with hospitality and professionalism after our four obits attempting to find self-park. We the opted for the valet park and a late lunch on the patio. It was ordinary food in a 'majestic' fall setting, with the veggie gyro taking first plate on our sunshine table. The fourth floor room was spacious, clean and comfortable, with a partial view. After a valley hike we enjoyed a very nice meal with attentive, professional service in the Mountain Room, where we split each course to save room for a notable, delicious berry pie and espresso. It was a reasonable meal for the price, enhanced by the grandeur of the setting. Following a quiet, comfortable evening, the Mountain Room transformed into a light cathedral for a wonderful a la carte breakfast, as we could not rationalize dropping $55 on a brunch buffet for the same food. Following, we walked off breakfast and retrieved our auto from valet park, with the remorse of having to leave the Ahwahnee experience. As a grand experience in roughing, the lodge is still a bit over priced for off season visits. But it was 24 hours of wonder and grandieur!
