Testimonials

“The Ahwahnee surpassed all our expectations on the occasion of our 30th anniversary. Every detail was splendid and memorable - right down to the rose petals on the bed in the shape of a heart, and the cheery rubber duckies! The dinner in the dining room was regal, and the champagne flowed with splendor, as did the Yosemite Falls just outside our balcony. Altogether, a perfect place for a seasoned romance, or the start of a new one... ”
– Edward M. from San Diego, CA
