By: Liam McNally + Save to a List

Tucked into the eastern corner of Yosemite Valley, the Majestic Yosemite Hotel (formerly known as the Ahwahnee Hotel) offers a chance for you to explore some of the most beautiful scenery in the world and experience all the comforts that come with a stay in a luxury hotel. 

Known for its stunning interior design and architecture, The Majestic Yosemite Hotel was specifically designed to highlight its natural surroundings and provide immediate access to incredible adventures like Yosemite Falls, Half Dome and Glacier Point

These are the best hikes in Yosemite and they're all within walking distance or a short drive from the Majestic.

The Majestic Yosemite Hotel Dining Room serves breakfast, lunch, dinner and Sunday brunch.

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 adventure.

We want to acknowledge and thank the past, present, and future generations of all Native Nations and Indigenous Peoples whose ancestral lands we travel, explore, and play on. Always practice Leave No Trace ethics on your adventures and follow local regulations. Please explore responsibly!
