After experiencing different levels at noise at the previous 3 hotels we stayed during this California and Nevada trip, we were so pleased to discover, after arriving late at night that no major noise occurred during our stay with the exception of the family next door that had a loud girl as they arrived but quickly calmed down. As we changed rooms, as the first room was not far from elevators and assumed that we might get disturbed during the night because of this, we discovered the second room had not been properly done!!! We noticed two pillows to be ruffled and not properly presented and later found a flight tag from an internal US flight in the otherwise clean baskets, proved that somebody stayed in the room. The late night house keeping chose to change the sheets and I helped the poor guy do that who concluded himself that indeed the day staff did not do their jobs properly.
Apart from that we had nothing to complain about as the room was very quiet, overlooking the internal courtyard with the swimming pool, the bedding and pillows were great, our room 344 was large with kettle and large TV screen, plus sink and further bathroom with kiddi bath, good towels although few toiletries maybe because of the above mentioned omission.
All in all we could not complain much as a good night sleep was the most important thing for us especially if you are all day on the road as we chose this hotel as base for visiting Sequoia and Kings canyon park and after Yosemite park. The reception was apologetic although I could not understand why, in such a sleepy town with 25% hotel occupancy, they would chose not to keep our requests for a quiet room as we sent well in advance via email, due to being members of the hotel group. A bit lazy of them.....
Also the hotel was difficult to find, even with google directions as it is not right on E Shaw Avenue but one 'area building' to be built away - at this moment in time that area is yet to be developed, which confused us a bit. Secure parking is on both sides of the hotel, one side is overlooking Yosemite Freeway and lots of restaurants are nearby. We witness the aftermath of an accident right near the hotel as a person rammed the car onto the other person's car, thing which we noticed 4 times during this US trip with people breaking in the last minute and the car behind not leaving enough space between the cars. Then long queues forming as people slow down to look at the accident with the police not asking them to respect the usual motorway speed!!!
