Built in the twenties to draw wealthy tourists to Yosemite, The Ahwahnee offers spectacular views of Half Dome, Yosemite Falls, and Glacier Point. Visitors can experience luxury and the great outdoors at the same time by relaxing in the Great Lounge or Solarium. The Ahwahnee Dining Room features a 34-foot-high ceiling, granite pillars, and floor-to-ceiling windows. The food is excellent, but dinner can feel like nothing more than a distraction from the view.
