The Ahwahnee Remodel

The Ahwahnee Remodel


Remodeled Guest Rooms

A Fresh Change of Scenery

Now is the perfect time to plan your Yosemite National Park getaway with a stay at The Ahwahnee. The Ahwahnee recently upgraded guest rooms in the main building to enhance the guest experience at this National Historic Landmark. All former carpet and mattresses were recycled and all furniture was re-purposed.

Elegant Design 

The design of the remodeled guest room was inspired by Donald and Mary Tresidder, who lived here on the property and were among the park’s first concessioners. The Tresidder’s private residence encompassed the hotel’s entire sixth floor, a suite of rooms furnished and decorated with an eclectic mix of styles reflecting both English and California Mission influences.

Donald and Mary’s private quarters were interpreted by designers Richard Kollath and Edward McCann, and they created a design inspired by the Tresidders featuring plush wool carpeting, nail head trimmed upholstery, copper tabletops, and forged light fixtures - all custom made by American companies. 

Yosemite-Inspired Artwork

A towering figure in the history of Yosemite, writer and naturalist John Muir devoted his life to protecting this extraordinary place, and was instrumental in establishing Yosemite as a National Park. The art on the walls are reproductions of botanical samples Muir collected and pressed in his notebooks in the 1870s during his walks in Yosemite.
