Coolest place, even during California's Covidmania, the staff was able to deliver a great meal. This place is so cool, its historic rooms take you back to a simpler time. Great hikes and fabulous views.

Awanee hotel stay, NEVER AGAIN !!!
Check in is to late, checkout is to early. Front desk staff not the friendliest as you would expect from a hotel that charges $485.00 a night. The room condition would be great if not for the constant loud noise that come from the ventilation making it very hard to sleep. Will never spend another night at the Awanee
