Could there be a better place to combine business and pleasure than Yosemite National Park? There are several hotels near the park with outstanding business and conference facilities, and when it’s time to relax, Yosemite’s spectacular sights and outdoor adventures are on your doorstep.
Business Hotels near Yosemite National Park
There are lodges, inns and resorts with business facilities all around the park. Try searching in nearby towns such as Mammoth Lakes, Sonora and Oakhurst. Yosemite’s business hotels have all the facilities you’d expect, including business centres, free WiFi and conference and meeting rooms. Larger and more upmarket properties also offer a range of on-site leisure facilities, from outdoor swimming pools to fitness rooms.
Visiting the Yosemite National Park
If you don’t have access to a car, you can still get to the heart of Yosemite National Park using local YARTS buses. They connect most major towns in the region to Yosemite Village. If you’re staying to the east, in Mammoth Lakes or June Lake, be aware that there is no direct access to Yosemite National Park in winter, as heavy snow forces the nearest park gate to close. The other gates remain open all year.
Exploring from Yosemite Village
Most visitors head for Yosemite Village first. The park’s visitor centre is here, as are the iconic Yosemite Falls, just a short hike from the village. If you want to explore further, ask staff at the visitor centre or at your Yosemite hotel about the many miles of hiking trails, bike trails and bridleways that run through the park. What better way to relax after a business meeting or conference? </ p>
Guided Tours of the Park
If you’re organising a conference or a corporate retreat, why not organise a guided tour of the park for your delegates? There are a number of scheduled bus tours that can be booked from the visitor centre or via your Yosemite hotel’s concierge. Alternatively, several local operators can organise custom programmes that cater to special interests, from birdwatching days to history walks.
