It takes a special kind of lodging property to garner the "Premier Lodge" classification from National Park Reservations. The Ahwahnee Hotel with it's striking granite facade, magnificent log-beamed ceilings, massive stone hearths, richly colored Native American artwork and finely appointed rooms is a shining example of what we consider to be the premier lodge in the Yosemite area.
The Ahwahnee Hotel is located in the majestic, jaw-dropping main valley inside Yosemite Park near the base of Half Dome and Glacier Point. This hotel, built in 1927 is a National Historical Landmark and one of the most distinctive resort hotels in North America. You will find the Ahwahnee Hotel in the center of the Yosemite Valley, an ideal location to view the Yosemite Falls, Half Dome, and Glacier Point.
Completed in 1927, The Ahwahnee features a unique blend of design influences including Art Deco, Native American, Middle Eastern and Arts & Crafts Movement. These elements can be seen in every aspect of the hotel including stenciling, woodwork, lighting fixtures and china patterns. Every room is designed for comfort and visual delight and reflects the natural surroundings and Native American influence of Yosemite's past.
Some of the most well loved aspects of The Ahwahnee are its grand public spaces featuring giant stone fireplaces, massive hand-stenciled beams, rich tapestries and elegant stained glass.
Accommodations at the Ahwahnee feature 123 rooms including 99 hotel rooms with one king or two double beds, as well as 24 cottages. Ahwahnee Hotel is proud to host annual events and offer specials such as the Vintners Holiday, Bracebridge Dinner, and Romantic Getaways. Yosemite is a popular national park so make sure to reserve your rooms at Ahwahnee well in advance of your trip.
