Explore Yosemite From Our Mammoth Lakes Hotel
The Westin Monache Resort, Mammoth is one of the premier hotels situated near Yosemite National Park and Yosemite Valley. We're located an approximately 45-minute drive away from the East Gate entrance of Yosemite National Park and a 2.5-hour drive away from Yosemite Valley.
A must-see when visiting Mammoth Lakes, the glacier-carved, U-shaped Yosemite Valley features some of the tallest waterfalls in the world. Discover the massive monoliths at Half Dome, El Capitan and Sentinel Rock, which are just a few of the many impressive geologic features of Yosemite Valley.
Yosemite National Park, one of the first and most iconic wilderness parks in the United States, is best known for its stunning waterfalls. But within its nearly 1,200 square miles, you'll find deep valleys, grand meadows, ancient giant sequoias, a vast wilderness area and so much more. Mono County is the eastern gateway to Yosemite National Park, and it is accessible via highway 120, Tioga Pass, just outside of the town of Lee Vining, California.
It's easy to get to Yosemite from The Westin Monache Resort, Mammoth. Our hotel is conveniently located near the YARTS bus stop. YARTS offers three daily routes to Yosemite Valley with rates starting from $20 round-trip.
Hotel guests can also take a scenic, 45-minute drive to Yosemite National Park. Many travelers choose this approach to Yosemite because of the impressive views of the Eastern Sierra's escarpment. However, please note that Yosemite's east entrance is open dependably only from June through October, due to heavy winter snows. Travelers are advised to call 209-372-0200 (press 1 then 1) for Yosemite road conditions.
