Excellent base to explore yosemite. Luxury hotel in a location ideal to start your trip into yosemite national park. Very near to Mariposa Grove. Well appointed rooms that blended well intot he environment. The swimming pool was a good size but sunbeds do get taken up pretty quickly. There are also a lot of families staying, so the pool area can be noisy. Only a couple of restaurants in the hotel and little nearby, they also seem to serve overlapping menus. Indoor pool is excellent for a quiet swim in a large pool.
