Elegant Victorian Charm

With one glimpse of The Ahwahnee, which is centrally located in the heart of Yosemite Valley; you’ll be transported back in time, to an era of elegance and new possibilities. Commissioned in the 1920s in the pursuit of drawing more affluent visitors to Yosemite National Park, The Ahwahnee is a testament to the vision and perseverance of American ingenuity. More than 5,000 tons of stone, 1,000 tons of steel, and 30,000 feet of lumber were transported through the mountains to create the hotel.

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 Ahwahnee distinguishes itself as one of the crown jewels of national park lodges. The hotel is a must-visit destination within Yosemite Valley for its dining, décor and architecture that complements the natural setting of the park. The Ahwahnee was designed and built in the 1920s with the specific goal of attracting well-to-do clientele. In the following century, The Ahwahnee has more than fulfilled that ambition, hosting presidents and royalty as well as other famous personalities within its walls.
