Hyatt Retail Clerk- El Capitan Hotel in MERCED, California
A hallmark of the Joie de Vivre brand is that every hotel is deeply and uniquely of its place. For the El Capitan Hotel and Mainzer Theater, that place is on Main Street Merced, in California’s Central Valley, and within a 90-minute drive of Yosemite National Park or the San Francisco Bay Area. The locale and the El Capitan properties are further defined by a history shaped by the railroad, ranching, and agriculture, and a connection to Yosemite that dates to a time when Merced was truly the last stop for provisions before the last leg of the journey into the park.
El Capitan Hotel feature restaurants serving classic California dishes inspired by the local bounty and produce of the Central Valley. The offerings extend throughout this historic property to a café bar, garden courtyard and market, where artisan coffees, crafted cocktails, and lighter fare nourish locals and travelers alike.
A short walk from El Capitan Hotel, Mainzer Theater is a communal gathering space hosting live entertainment. The theater, with its multiple functions and spaces, features a screening room, a game room, and a restaurant serving approachable American comfort food.
Near art galleries, the playhouse, movies, live entertainment at Merced Theater and Multicultural Arts Center, and seasonal events, the properties’ role within the Main Street community and Merced’s history is to serve as a vital, cultural hub within the Central Valley.
Named in homage to a vintage baseball card store that once located in the El Capitan’s Hotel’s original building, Bobby’s is a 700 square foot one-stop-shop featuring a selection of regional products such as beer, wine, coffee, small batch honey, handmade soaps and bath products, fresh pressed juices, pastries and more. The market brings an updated take on the classic general store to the neighborhood, perfect for both locals and visitors.
An outdoor cart features locally grown seasonal fruits and veggies, welcoming guests into the market. A build-your-own trail mix bar alongside local breads, honey, cheeses and meats serves as a convenient and tasty solution for travelers heading out for a hike at Yosemite. Organic essentials such as free-range eggs and grass-fed milk will always be on hand. In addition to food and spirits, souvenirs representative of Merced and the region are showcased in the shop. These include maps portraying the area’s landscape, sweatshirts representing the town and UC Merced and more – all delightful opportunities for visitors to commemorate their time in Merced, and locals to represent their hometown pride.
