Bottom Line

Nestled deep amongst the pine trees, cliffs, and canyons of Yosemite Valley is the 123-room The Majestic Yosemite Hotel. The impressive stone and wood structure, built in 1927, is considered a National Historic Landmark. Rooms with views of the Half Dome and El Captain summits are filled with wood and rich tapestries of Native American design. Highlights here include the Great Lounge with 24-foot-high ceilings and a large stone fireplace along with the light-flooded dining room. This hotel is on the expensive side -- and parking is limited -- but the prime location and views are worth the price tag.

Oyster Hotel Review

The Majestic Yosemite Hotel


Tucked away within beautiful Yosemite Valley in Yosemite National Park

The Majestic is located in an area of Yosemite Valley that once was the village of the native Miwok Indians. The Valley is known for its dense forests of pine and sequoia, clear streams, and popular summits El Capitan and Half Dome. It is considered the main attraction of Yosemite National Park and accordingly has many visitor facilities within its boundaries.

Yosemite National Park encompasses over 700,000 acres across east central California and the Sierra Nevada mountain range. Designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1984, it draws millions of visitors each year to its majestic cliffs, waterfalls, and canyons. From hiking and biking to climbing and skiing, tourists can enjoy a wide range of outdoor activities in America’s third-oldest national park.
