Fancy yet comfortable

This was the perfect place for us to stay during our week long trip to Lake Tahoe. It was very nice and comfortable, and it had every amenity you could imagine. The room was spacious and comfortable, and filled with everything we needed or could think of. It was great to have a washer/dryer in the room along with a full kitchen and dishes. And they didn't just fill it with cheap useless junk. The staff were very polite, friendly and helpful with the area and attractions. We felt very comfortable here and as a low key couple we didn't feel out of place at all, but at the same time it still felt a little fancy. The place is just gorgeous and comfortable at the same time.

Just Wonderful

This place was exactly what we expected and made our stay super comfortable and relaxing. The staff were friendly and nice, and the room was spacious with almost everything you'd need for a week long stay. It had dishes, soaps, blue ray player, washer/dryer, full fridge etc. It was nice enough to enjoy but not so fancy that a normal person would feel out of place. I would come back here and stay again for sure.

Great location

Couldn't beat the location as it's right next to the gondola and many shops and restaurants. The room was spacious and well thought out with our only complaint being that the gas fireplace didn't work. We called the front desk and an "engineer" was sent to check out it but basically told us it had some issues. He got going once for us but we could never get it going again during our stay. The front desk and lobby staff were wonderful.

Great location

This hotel was in a perfect location to enjoy all that South Shore has to offer. The gondola was steps away to go up to the top of Heavenly Ski resort - which has things going on no matter the time of year that you are visiting. The kitchenette came in very handy (grocery store is under a block away so you don't have to eat out for every meal), silverware, dishes, frig, coffee maker and toaster were well used. The pool was nice with plenty of lounge chairs. My only complaint was that the valet attendants were so slow, we needed to give ourselves 30 minutes to wait for the car, which seemed very excessive.

Sightseeing tip: Short walk from hotel

As close to a ski - in /ski-out resort as you can get in South Lake Tahoe. Casinos are also under a 5 minute walk away.

Awesome place

This is a wonderful hotel and a fantastic location. The staff was okay and helpful, but I have seen better. Some individuals stood out, while others brought the experience back down. Parking sucks. Worst experience I have had. What's up with the high extra parking fees? It seems like Hotels are going the route of the airlines where everything is extra. I hope this doesn't get worse as it would further reduce an overall positive experience. All in all, I would recommend this place and I would go again, but I would try to figure out a better parking arrangement.
