Because of its remote location near Yosemite National Park’s south entrance, and the difficulty of filling rooms left empty by last-minute cancellations, Château du Sureau has a firm cancellation policy. If you cancel more than 14 days prior to your scheduled arrival date, the hotel will return your deposit (half the cost of your stay), minus a 10-percent administrative fee, or it can hold your deposit and apply it towards a future booking. If you cancel less than 14 days from check-in, this Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star hotel will charge you for the full cost of your entire stay, unless someone else books your room.
There are a few other policies to keep in mind. The hotel requires a two-night minimum stay when you arrive on Friday or Saturday, and a three-night minimum stay on some holiday weekends. Extra charges apply if you have more than two people in your guestroom, and the Yosemite hotel will automatically add 12 percent gratuity and an 11 percent room tax to your bill.
