The Ahwahnee

Elegance is Just the Start

Operating Season:

  • Open All Year

Please Note: The Ahwahnee is currently in in the midst of an extensive Seismic Retrofit renovation project through the remainder of 2024.

Construction hours will be Monday-Thursday from 7:00 am - 5:30 pm. There will be some noise present during these hours, and we encourage our guests to be out enjoying the park. Our main kitchen, surrounding concrete and balconies are the main projects that may impact our guest’s experience. The seismic retrofit project is imperative to keeping the hotel safe and sturdy for several years to come. We appreciate our guests understanding and flexibility during these times. 

The Ahwahnee shines as the crown jewel of the national park lodges. Known for its stunning interior design and architecture, The Ahwahnee was specifically designed to highlight its natural surroundings, featuring Yosemite Falls, Half Dome and Glacier Point. The hotel holds a historic heritage as it is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and is a National Historic Landmark. The destination of queens and presidents alike, this distinctive Yosemite hotel offers a perfect balance of history, hospitality and elegance.

The Ahwahnee offers a gift shop with a focus on local artisans, a decadent sweet shop, a comfortable bar and a heated outdoor swimming pool. The Ahwahnee Dining Room is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner.

Classic Hotel Rooms: Classic rooms are finely appointed with lovely views of Glacier Point, Half Dome, or Yosemite Falls, as well as the hotel surroundings.

ADA Classic Hotel Rooms: Select rooms are accessibility compliant, which include widened doors, grab bars in toilet stalls, raised toilet seats, and low-density carpet.

Featured Hotel Rooms: Several rooms offer balconies with stunning views of Yosemite's most iconic cliffs and waterfalls. Balconies are most often shared with the adjoining room. Balcony sizes vary.

Junior Suites

The El Dorado Diggins Suite was at one time a private dining room, a cocktail lounge, and a chapel in the 1940s. This unique suite features a king bed and a sunken living room, large windows and a slate entrance way.

The Mary Curry Tresidder Suite - called the Queen's Room since Queen Elizabeth stayed here on her visit to Yosemite in the 1980s - is ideal for honeymooners and rekindling old flames. The four-poster canopy bed and grand bathroom make for a decidedly romantic space.

Hotel Parlors

The Ahwahnee offers guests a choice of four parlors, which combine with hotel rooms to create luxuriously appointed suites with the best views at The Ahwahnee.
