I am torn on how to rate this experience. The hotel itself is lovely. It is set by itself at the end of the valley, away from all of the hubbub of Curry Vllage, Yosemite Village, etc. It has been restored and/or maintained to retain its 1920s charm. That charm comes with a price... very thin walls. We had a crying baby and a bratty toddler next to us. After 40 minutes of them carrying on, we called the front desk and since it was a crying kid, all they could do was offer earplugs. Also, the elevator was not working two of the four days we were there. They were running the service elevator for people who needed assistance. (Not a huge deal, since we should take the stairs more anyway!) The pool was clean and warm. The two food options were ok. I found the dining room for dinner overpriced. The bar food was a better deal, but still expensive. Our last night we simply ordered room service, because it was cheaper than going downstairs to eat! Again, compared to the offerings elsewhere in the park, this is really your only option for food.
In my view, I wouldn't stay anywhere else if I were to return. I liked being able to escape the crowds after a hike in a serene environment with a hot shower and a pool!More
