We spent two nights in Wawona hotel last December. From the outside, this hotel seems to be very attractive. The lounge and the dining room are charming also. But we were very disappointed with our room which was not situated in the main building. When we arrived at around 4.00 p.m., it was very cold inside and we soon realized that it was not heated. We were there in December ! First of all, we thought it was a careless omission. But when we reported it to the reception, they just explained it was perfectly normal : rooms were only heated from 6.00 p.m. !!! Meanwhile, we had to wait in the lounge... We also had a problem with the bathroom : one night, there was no hot water at all ! Moreover, the welcome, at the reception, was completely impersonal.
As a consequence, we would not recomment this hotel.
