The Ahwahnee Weddings


The Ahwahnee, the National Historic Landmark hotel in Yosemite Valley, will be temporarily closed from January 2, 2023 – March 2, 2023. This closure is necessary to complete seismic upgrades to the historic building and a refurbishment of the kitchen floor. The park staff looks forward to completing these essential projects to improve and preserve the hotel for future generations to enjoy. The Ahwahnee is not accepting wedding or meeting reservations until at least after the completion of these updates.
