Harrahs

Heavenly, Lake Tahoe

The hotel

The entrance of this hotel is all natural stone and soothing wood panelling, perfectly conjuring up a giant Alpine-style retreat overlooking the picturesque Sierra mountain range and tranquil Lake Tahoe. Your rooms are generously sized and feature his and hers bathrooms and a sitting room to admire the views from the picture windows. They’re also completely soundproofed, to ensure you get a great night’s sleep after a busy day on Heavenly’s spacious trails. That’s where the peace and quiet ends though. There’s so much to do in this immensely popular hotel from gambling in the huge casino to taking in one of the many fun shows to dining in some fabulous gourmet restaurants (or stuffing your face in the fantastic all-you-can-eat buffet!) that your holiday will zip by in a whirlwind of excitement! If all that sounds far too strenuous by half, fear not. The spa treatments, steam room, heated pool and sauna are all perfect places for relaxing in after a day’s skiing.

Rooms have great bones but have a general need for upgrades. Steakhouse has poor service and high prices. Food is generally okay. Try the River cafe for breakfast. Better than the premium restaurants.

This property is the hardest to get through to a host even if your diamond. Worst customer service of most properties I have been to. The room just a room your suppose to get upgraded when available as a diamond member not true at this property. I could not believe we were not allowed take out at the all night restaurant on the 18th floor because the man says he simply didn’t have the time? What’s the difference if you order a burger at the car or it goes into a box? I have eaten there in and to go many times because the food is really good but never talk to like that. I complained to the hotel manager all I got was an I’m sorry they can’t do that. At this time it’s late they could have done something for me. Just disappointed. Read less

My room was upgraded and staff was awesome. I will only stay at Harrahs instead of Harvey’s. I’m a Seven Star member and Harvey’s always has me the old beat up room. Furniture looks like it’s 100 years old. At Harrahs I get upgraded . Harrahs all the way!!!

I booked a couple nights midweek at Harvey’s Lake Tahoe and had a great time. The room was beautiful on the 16th floor with views of Edgewood Golf Course, Round Hill and the Lake. I was solo but had been wanting to go to the IMPROV at Harvey’s this year, so bought a ticket for the 9pm show and was not disappointed. Great show as always. If you… Read more

If you love Comedy you should check this out. It’s all Comedy no Improv, don’t let the name keep you from going at least once. Hey 50 is open with minor delays I would have given this 5 stars except Harvey’s restaurants were closed and are going through a facelift to make room for Gordon Ramseys Hell’s Kitchen coming in a couple months. 19 Kitchen Bar is Gone Sage room moves up to 19th Floor and Hell’s Kitchen replaces the Sage room near the gaming floor Should be great once they are all open for business, until then there are plenty of places on the boulevard and at Harrahs Read less
