The Majestic Yosemite Hotel

Hornberger + Worstell won a national competition to provide design services for the rehabilitation of the historic Majestic Yosemite Hotel. Built in 1927, the Majestic is a National Historic Landmark and is among the most significant of the National Park hotels in the United States.

The Majestic Yosemite Hotel, known until recently as the Ahwahnee, has been in near-continuous service for more than 80 years and was in need of repair to restore and preserve its architecture, artwork, and historic finishes. Hornberger + Worstell developed a comprehensive plan to rehabilitate the property, including adjoining guest cottages, and employee dormitory. Work on the site concluded in 2016.
