Four-Diamond Resort Celebrates Twenty Years of Service in the Sierra National Forest
FISH CAMP, Calif. (July 6, 2010) – Summer 2010 marks the 20th Anniversary of Tenaya Lodge at Yosemite. Over the past two decades, the property has grown in both size and amenities. Just this month, expanded meeting space and Ascent, the Spa at Tenaya Lodge have opened to guests.

In addition to recent meeting and event space expansions and the newly built spa and wellness center, the property’s dining and accommodations have expanded over the past two years. In 2009, Embers, the property’s upscale dining restaurant opened offering seasonal menus with sustainable selections, as well as the Timberloft Pizzeria at the Cottages, offering a relaxing setting to enjoy wood-fired Sierra Pizza. In 2008, as part of the expansion plan, Tenaya Lodge acquired the adjacent property, adding 50 additional cottage-style guestrooms, offering guests a more secluded lodging option nestled amongst towering Sugar Pines.

Amongst all these changes and improvements, one aspect has remained the same – the staff. Six employees began working at Tenaya Lodge when it opened in 1990. Today, the lodge employs over 400 people and is currently hiring for a variety of positions.

“This is a special time for the Tenaya Lodge at Yosemite. Celebrating our 20th Anniversary with the opening of Ascent, the Spa at Tenaya Lodge and our expanded meeting space makes this an outstanding milestone,” said Tom McCann, Tenaya Lodge’s General Manager. “Further, the fact that we can share it with some of our inaugural employees is a testament to our commitment to the region as an employer.”

To celebrate this milestone, Tenaya Lodge is developing a special offer this fall. The 20th Anniversary Package will be available online for booking in the next few weeks, for stays between September 6 and December 15, and includes one night’s lodging, breakfast for two and a complimentary seven-day Yosemite Park Pass, starting at just $179 per night, for two persons.
