Completed in 1927, the design of Majestic Yosemite Hotel (formerly The Ahwahnee®) uniquely blends an array of influences – including Art Deco, Native American, Middle Eastern and Arts & Crafts Movement; these elements can be seen in a variety of places, from the stenciling, to the woodwork, lighting fixtures, china patterns... Some of the hotel's best-loved aspects are its grand public spaces featuring giant stone fireplaces, massive hand-stenciled beams, rich tapestries and elegant stained glass. The hotel sits in the heart of Yosemite National Park, and shines as the park's distinctive AAA® Four-Diamond hotel. Known for its magnificent façade, and architecture, the hotel was specifically designed to highlight its natural surroundings, featuring Yosemite Falls, Half Dome and Glacier Point. The destination of queens and presidents alike, this distinctive hotel offers a perfect balance of history, hospitality and elegance. A study in size and grace, the Great Lounge is 77 feet long and 51 feet wide with 24-foot-high ceilings, and ten floor-to-ceiling windows topped with original, hand-stained glass panels bathe the lounge in light during the day. The massive stone fireplace is an inviting setting; a display of Native American hand woven baskets further decorates the interior; and wrought-iron chandeliers provide a warm glow in the evenings. The Winter Club Room is a cozy, comfortable sitting room with floor-to-ceiling display cases, a winter sports theme, vintage photographs and large windows that create a relaxing mood that's particularly comforting in winter. The Dining Room, the setting for the annual Bracebridge Dinner, features a 34-foot high ceiling with large sugar pine trestles and ceiling-to-floor windows framed with stained glass. Guest rooms feature comfortable furnishings, including upholstered chairs, televisions, refrigerators, bathrobes, hair dryers and bath amenities, and each room is accented with original Native American designs. The hotel provides concierge service, bell service, turn-down service, room service, daily in-room ice service and afternoon tea served in the Great Lounge – and the Dining Room, Great Lounge and Solarium are just steps away from any guest's door.
