There were no rooms available in the main lodge, when we booked, so we opted for a cottage. We checked into the room. It was a warm spell and the room was very warm. We asked the bellman if he could instruct us to how the air conditioning operated. He could not get it to work and said he would let "maintenance" know that it was not working and would not turn on. An hour and half later we contacted the front desk and were told that the air to those units had not been activated yet. UGH! So I mentioned that sleeping warm was not my idea of fun at the Ahwahnee.
They did call and found a room in the main hotel.
Nicer and cool! Still this is just an ok hotel. Poor bathroom. Tiny toilet. Feels old and tired.
Tonight after a long day of shooting photos, we went into the lounge for an adult beverage. At $11 each, we ordered vodka on the rocks. Out came a double old fashioned glass, with ice, the glass is probably 3.5" tall. The vodka filled the bottom 3/4" of the glass, no joke!! This is the first time in my life that my husband went to the room and brought in a flask, so we could relax. The food in the lounge is only ok. For what we are spending, it should be awesome, and it is not.
This hotel and staff should thank their lucky stars for this hotel's location.
