We did not stay at the Majestic, but we did listen to the ranger talk and it was very informative. It lasted about an hour. While the speaker did not have much of a personality, we learned a lot about the hotel and the park...More

There is a history tour every day at 2:00 which was a great introduction to the hotel. I am not sure it was completely worth the price, but it was a great experience for our first trip to Yosemite.

We came here for dinner - a truly amazing meal - and spent time wandering the building in awe of its architectural delights. A once in a lifetime experience.

We usually stay at the lodge, but this trip we splurged and were lucky enough to get one of the cottages. It was like stepping back in time. The room was nicely appointed, with king size bed and another little room with a twin bed....More

The room was average and clean. View was good. Food in the restaurant was good but very expensive. Price per night was insane. We paid $610 per night including taxes. YIKES!
