The Ahwahnee Hotel

We had the absolutely wonderful opportunity to stay at the beautiful Ahwahnee Hotel during our short stay at Yosemite National Park.  The hotel opened in 1927 and became a National Historic Landmark in 1987.  It is so fun to stay at this lovely hotel, if I ever get lucky enough to get to stay there again I would love to come visit during the winter time, it is has the perfect lodge-y feeling that would be the perfect getaway during the winter.

The main hall was my favorite part of the hotel.  It is a ginormous room filled with couches, comfy chairs, candle filled chandeliers and big fireplaces.  It is so cozy, I could have spent hours reading in there.  The hotel hosts an afternoon tea in the main hall, open to all guests every afternoon.  We made sure to stop by after our exciting day in the park.  I chose to enjoy a cup of herbal lemon rose tea.

The dining room was exquisite.  It was a beautiful sight all lit up for dinner, every table had a single long candle as the center piece.  We also ate breakfast in this dining room, and I would enjoy a big cup of hot chocolate, complete with whipped cream, every morning. The food served there was so delicious!
