    It is iconic. It is beautiful. It is the perfect place to grab a hot cocoa on a misty Yellowstone morning or a glass of wine on a warm summer evening. I can't actually recall if I have stayed in a room at the Ahwahnee but it is a must-visit stop every time I go to the national park, whether for a fabulous dining experience or just a quick pop into the gift shop. The dining room is the ultimate epitome of rustic elegance; the decor just as delicious as the menu items. Even if you aren't keen on having a full meal, do take the time to check out this beautiful and historic building that has been the center of luxury in Yosemite Valley for nearly 100 years. You'll be happy you did.

    Rustic luxury. Built in 1927 it came in at about a million dollars over-budget. The service is good, meals are good and Internet access is excruciatingly slow. Visit the hotel for its design, history and location.

    Gorgeous national park lodge has rooms with rustic luxury and views of Half Dome perched like a watchman over the Yosemite Valley. Anyone is free to come in and sit by the lodge's giant fireplaces in winter, or stop by the bar for an El Capitini cocktail on the outdoor patio in summer. Turn left at the entrance to the dining room and walk back through the Great Room to see the historical photographs of snow sports in the Winter Club Room and the painted panels of Sierra Nevada wildlife in the Mural Room.

    Art Deco, Native American, Middle Eastern, and Arts and Crafts influences all contributed to this 1927 landmark’s design. More recently, a renovation drew upon Yosemite’s historical archives to determine appropriate textiles and colors, giving an English country-house look to the interiors—rich tapestries, stained glass, and hand-stenciled beams. The most elaborate rooms feature balconies and views of Glacier Point, Yosemite Falls, or Half Dome. After a day in the great outdoors, take your complimentary afternoon tea on the patio overlooking Glacier Point.

    This was a classic hotel to stay in while visiting Yosemite National Park. The room we had (Veterans Day weekend 2012) wasn't overly impressive, although the view was scenic and bathroom quite nice. The bed and linens were very comfortable as well. What stood out to me was the architecture of the entire building, in particular the lounge and dining room. It was nice to spend two nights here for the amenities and surroundings but I think visiting the property and having a meal or just touring the grounds would suffice the next time we are at the park. It's a justifiably legendary hotel, but ultimately rather expensive. Well worth trying and i'm extremely glad we did.

    Getting a room would have been way out of my price range and even dinner would have put a dent in my bank account. But I had heard about the spectacular view from the dining room and decided it was at least worth taking my fiance for a drink.

    Much to my disappointment the bar isn't actually located in the dining room but tucked away in a corner of the lobby with no view other than a meadow where a private event was taking place. But don't worry - two drinks each and two bowls of soup still cost us over $100 so that helped remind us we were at the Ahwanhee.

    Beautiful views from the rooms. Really enjoyed our stay here. Dining room could use some updating on the upholstery.
