It's all about the location

Posted Apr 30, 2015 on Hotels
Excellent view of Yosemite falls. Check-in area was quite congested on my arrival. Was not able to get a dinner reservation for the same evening of arrival but room service was excellent. Room seemed small for price required. Staff was extremely courteous and breakfast dining crew were the best. It is all about location and I will plan to stay here again.

Special Staff

Posted Apr 26, 2015
Pros: The staff, the food was good. Very clean, cozy and charming.
Cons: There was supposed to be a dress code and we are "old school" and appreciated that. During dinner, half the people were in jeans and sloppy tops.
Location: Close to all sights in Yosemite. What could be better?
When the staff found out our trip was a "bucket list" item for my 87 yr. old Mom, they went out of their way to make our stay special. Can't thank them enough for their consideration - room with a great view, complimentary snack tray and beverages when we arrived in room and a gift for my Mom. The hotel itself is old but well taken care of and charming. We loved every minute.

The location and the ambience is out of this world.The dinner was excellent. Definitely recommended. The only drawback was the Internet . In this day and age one would expect a reasonable service.

Was disappointed with this hotel and they hype surrounding it. The room was just OK and the bathroom had someones hairs all over. It was a pity as I was really looking forward to this hotel but it just felt "lacking in heart"

Awahnee hotel in April

Posted Mar 14, 2015 on Hotels
The hotel was built in 1927-28 and is a historic landmark. The rooms need some maintenance, sprucing up. This hotel charges 5 star prices with a 3-4 star service. The food is very expensive however I feel the breakfast buffet was reasonable($25.00). The irritating issue with this hotel is you need reservations for every meal, including breakfast- r u kidding me? We had to wait 20 minutes to be seated and we were told we were lucky to get in. The necessity for meal reservations is not completely explained explained upon Check- in so heads up. There is a nice restaurant at the Yosemite lodge and a reasonably priced cafeteria. The location is what makes the Awahnee hotel special and reservations can be had when all other places r booked if you can handle the price. I would recommend the Yosemite lodge for families, better priced, food more reasonable, location just as nice.

Pros: Location
Cons: Hotel manage management.
I came for the view, but they gave me a room with an obstructed view and wouldn't change it. I seems that they would save slots at the restaurant for hotel guests, but no, the restaurant was sold out by 3:30 on a weekday. Typical of their service was the tea and cookie service which ran out of cups. By the time we got our own cups there was only one cookie left for the three of us. Wifi was monumentally slow.

Cons: To save water, the toilet could be upgraded.
Location: We like to walk, and you can walk to many locations from there. Shuttle service is good too. We try to not use our car once we arrive in Yosemite.
It's always special to be in Yosemite, but to be in Yosemite and stay at the Ahwahanee is about as extra special as I can imagine. The history, the outside surroundings, the charm of the hotel, beautiful old rooms, and the good service are all there.

Great location

Great location. Hard to book at holiday season. Great Restraunt. Again need to reserve in advance. Hotel condition is dated.
