We were very impressed with the beautiful old building, in such a picturesque area. It's a shame the service didn't match it. The staff were indifferent, not rude just not interested. We were a bit early for check in so they stored our bags for us & gave us a buzzer for when it was ready. The room was comfortable...

This historic hotel is idyllic, and has the makings of a picture postcard. Be aware however that due to its age and historic significance, things do go wrong with things like plumbing not necessarily being to modern standards. However you should try and take this in your stride. The staff and management are hard working and attentive. I had an...

We got two adjoining rooms for a family of 4. Our rooms had a beautiful view of the waterfall and the sound was soothing. They were comfortably appointed for an old hotel. The restaurant is stunning and food is quite good. We had excellent service. Room service was prompt & efficient. There are hiking trails starting at the hotel, bike...

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...
