We are planning a four night trip to Yosemite for late April and have narrowed our choices to these two. I've read many of the reviews for both and have a sense of the pros and cons. We are definitley going to rent a riverside room with a balcony overlooking the Merced---does anyone have photos of and comments about the room interiors at the two properties? It seems that only two or three rooms at Blue Butterfly have their own private balcony--can you comment on preferences/share photos. Also, If we opt for the more complete services of Yosemite View, are there newer buildings that may have more updated rooms? Which is best: top floor or second floor? We would likely opt for the "riverview luxury king" room type. One last question: is it possible to pay for use of the indoor pool/spa at Yosemite View if you stay at Blue Butterfly?
