Mountain Retreat

The Majestic Yosemite Hotel

Nestled at the base of sheer rock face, the impressive stone-and-wood Majestic Yosemite Hotel (formerly known as the Ahwahnee) is the quintessential California mountain lodge. This 123-room property is surrounded by dense pine and sequoia forests and clear streams; the popular summits El Capitan and Half Dome are about 10 to 15 minutes away by car and are visible from many of the rooms. It’s worth booking a stay simply for the Great Lounge -- a stately space with a 24-foot ceiling and an enormous stone fireplace -- alone.
