I'm trying to show my daughter SF and Yosemite on a budget.
This may be crazy, but when I calculate the separate variables (air fare, SF hotel, car rental, Yosemite hotel), it appears to be cheaper to book a package to SF, check in for 7 nights at HIE Pacifica, drive to Yosemite the next day for two nights, and then return to HIE Pacifica and continue our stay there. The money that I save by booking the package to SF pays for the Yosemite hotel!
Would the hotel be concerned if we were not around for a couple of days? They would already have my money, so I don't see why there would be a problem.
