Yosemite National Park sets the example for many of the amazing historic national park lodges throughout the national park system. The most prominent is The Ahwahnee Hotel, but other notable lodges in the park include The Tenaya Lodge & Cottages and The Wawona Hotel. They are gorgeous lodges emphasizing craftsmanship and grandeur. Because of the historic and nostalgic importance of these properties, availability is often scarce or sporadic. For these reasons of historical importance and limited availability, mixing up your Yosemite accommodations is a great idea. Another reason is affordability of your overall vacation.
The Ahwahnee Hotel is a National Historic Landmark with past guests consisting of celebrities, presidents, such as JFK, and royalty including the Ethiopian Emperor Haile Selassie. This hotel, above all others, is a tourist destination in itself. The Wawona Hotel and the Tenaya Lodge are right up there in historical significance when it comes to national park lodging. When choosing your lodging for your Yosemite vacation, consider a night or two at one of these nostalgic and historic lodges. Even if you stay for one night in either of these jewels, your Yosemite experience will be that much greater.
Another reason to mix up your lodging is because of availability. You would be hard pressed to get a week's reservation at one of these hotels with less than 9 months advanced notice. So, booking a night or two at one of these lodges might be the only thing you are able to get.
Definitely ask your National Park Reservations professional about sporadic availability in either of these amazing lodges during your vacation stay.
Another great reason to mix up your park lodging is for economical reasons. These hotels are not cheap, but they are experiences of a lifetime. Many groups choose to stay a night or two at one of these luxurious lodges and compliment that with a stay at something much simpler, such as Curry Village for the rest of their vacation. This not only creates an opportunity to experience two sides of lodging in the park, but also makes your overall vacation more affordable and diverse.
Lodging in Yosemite ranges from high class, luxurious accommodations to more affordable, cabin-like experiences. By mixing up your lodging experience, you can get the best of both worlds. The experience of a night at the Tenaya Lodge or the Ahwahnee Hotel will stay in your minds forever as well as the simpler rustic experience of somewhere like Curry Village. It will make your Yosemite National Park vacation more diverse and it will save you money.
