My wife and I are not big campers, but she really wanted to check out Yosemite, so we decided on a heated tent cabin #418. We asked for a cabin near the restrooms so we wouldn't have to walk far in the dark (especially with all the roaming bears).
The cabin was nice and the heater worked great (if not too well). The only problem with the cabin was that there were blood stains all over one side of the tent, which typically means bed bugs (I've watched Verminators).
If you want to get up close and personal to the bears, this is the place to be! One night our neighbors in the tent behind us started yelling and shouting at about 8pm. I knew they were trying to shoo away a bear, so I ran out with my video camera. They had done a good job of frightening him and he was scampering down through the campground. One couple was sitting calmly in their lounge chairs when the bear came up next to them and they said, "No! Go away!" and he left. These bears are pretty harmless. The next day, a man came running into the men's shower room shaking because he'd just run into a bear on his way back to the cabin. All in all, the bears here are great!
One of the best things about Curry Village is the lobby of the dining hall. This area is setup like a great lodge (even nicer than Yosemite lodge) with a fireplace and really comfy couches. We spent several hours sprawled out on these couches after experiencing a bad case of food poisoning from the Yosemite Lodge cafeteria's spaghetti/meatballs.
