"The most luxurious way to do Yosemite is to stay at the famous Ahwahnee Hotel. Located at the bottom of Yosemite Valley, this hotel is in the most optimal location to access anything in that section of the park that you’d like to do, while providing ultimate luxury accommodations, a rustic mountain feel, and delicious food in its dining room. It will cost you a pretty penny, but this is any visitor to Yosemite’s bucket list stay. The hotel is registered on the National Register of Historic Places and is a National Historic Landmark, and during your stay you can learn about all of the historically famous visitors who have stayed there, from presidents, to queens. The architecture of the hotel offers a rustic feel and uses the surrounding beauty of Yosemite Valley in its design. Amenities include a heated swimming pool, onsite dining, a gift shop, Wifi (but mountain wifi), free parking, amazing views, and daily afternoon tea. A variety of room options are available ranging in price from $340-$1260/night depending on the season of your stay."
"This historic landmark hotel dates back to 1927 and is set on a valley floor with views of Half Dome, Glacier Point and Yosemite Falls. It's 1.5 miles from Yosemite Village. If you want to stay at a hotel in the park, this is the best of the best!"
