The building an setting are spectacular. I understand historic buildings, but the bathroom sink was not secures and about to fall off. The room's carpet was old and dirty. We brought a problem to the reception desk and were given snarky answer. We asked for a manager who came out and had no idea there was a problem but you...

Aramark took over management of the Majestic (aka the Ahwahnee) in March of 2016 and its improvements are beginning to show. My wife and I stayed there that March and again this March and April. Rooms have been updated and the bar renovated (although an expanded bar menu, to include lunch items, would be more than welcome and would relieve...

Such a unique treasure in Yosemite. A must stay at least once kind of place. If you like being close to the center and heart of a national park, this is it. It's a bit pricey but worth it for your first time visit if you can afford it. The shuttle stop is right there. A nice bar with small...

Despite the battle for the name of the hotel, the Majestic is still a treasure. With it's rustic, beautiful setting amongst Yosemite, the Majestic offers a true historical experience in a well kept setting. The furnishings are old, yet the new contractor seems on track for an upgrade as there was a lot of construction taking place. I am looking...

First of all, I will say the room furnishings are tired, but they are due to be replaced this year. Our room was dated, but had a huge walk-in closet, where we could store all of our gear. We had a room with a view, which was great. The rooms are very quiet. The public rooms on the lobby and...

The Ahwahnee hotel as it should be known is a place you need to stay at least once in your life to feel the grandeur of this hotel and it location in Yosemite. Of course with history comes some sacrifices. But first the positive. We stayed as part of the Taste of Yosemite program held in January and February each...

The location for this hotel is awesome right in the valley and the best you are going to get in the park. It's very cozy and rustic and the views are amazing. You should dine there but my recon is to save your money and do breakfast a reasonably priced buffet is great -- and I am not a buffet...

The Ahwahnee Hotel is a historical classic ART HERRITAGE SITE. We love the hotel because it expresses the essence of the pioneer spirit and what it means to be an American. Teddy Roosevelt began a tradition of preserving beauty for everyone and not just the rich and entitled. The national parks belong to all of us. The staff is very...

Well. lets start on arrival. Valet parking excellent. All OK so far. Check in disaster. Very very rude and stressed receptionist. Even forgot to give us our room keys. As a previous reviewer said 'This place embodies everything that is wrong with the world today. The place calls itself Majestic; however, it has no shame in charging $800 a room...

Good evening Phil-I-am61, Thank you for your frank and candid comments. It is not a proud moment for me reading about your experience. I am not going to offer any excuses.
