Stayed at the Chateau after having stayed at the Ahwahnee for the first part of our trip to Yosemite--there is no comparison. The Chateau is 5 star in every way (The Ahwahnee is, sadly, not). The Chateau is like staying in someone's private European villa. The setting and building are beautiful. The service is impeccable--the staff attended to our every need--be it icing down a bottle of wine while we were hiking so it would be ready upon our return, to having our car parked at the front steps every morning. The rooms are beautifully appointed with 4 poster beds, European antiques, and large baths. Our room had a fireplace, which unfortunately, could not be used due to current dry season fire hazard. Otherwise, the stay was perfect. The adjacent Elderberry restaurant is world class also--amazing food with a complete change of menue daily--beautiful setting and attentive, but not intrusive, service. It is definitely pricey--our room was $495/night and dinner for two at the restaurant (5 courses with wine and tip) was $310--but you, undoubtedly, get what you pay for--we will look forward a return visit.
FYI: the Chateau is about 15 minutes to the Yosemite Park south entrance and Maraposa Sequoia Grove, about 1.5 hours to the south rim of the valley (incredible hiking off the road to Glacier Point!), and about 2 hours from Yosemite Valley.
