How it Ranks: The Ahwahnee Hotel ranks #1 out of 216 Yosemite Hotels based on an evaluation of expert ratings and awards, as well as user reviews. The hotel scored high enough to make the U.S. News list of the Best Hotels in Yosemite.

Our Take: Sitting within the boundaries of Yosemite National Park, The Ahwahnee Hotel hosts some of the park's most desired accommodations. From the outside, the hotel looks like a majestic mountain lodge designed to mimic examples of its impressive surroundings — for example, the dining room commands views of Yosemite Falls, while the Solarium provides breathtaking Glacier Point vistas and the Dining Room's windows look out over massive sugar pine trees. Visitors were impressed by the thoughtfully designed common areas, though some say the guest rooms (which now all feature Wi-Fi access) felt drab in comparison. What's more, you'll have to shell out big bucks to be so close to key sights like the Half Dome.
