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.

Fun experience at Harrah’s. My first time in Tahoe spent at this old school casino hotel with a great atmosphere and lovely staff. Would recommend for your holiday stay. The location and value are superb.

The rooms at Harrah's South Lake Tahoe are very nice / clean and all have 2 bathrooms! Parking is close and easy. They also have Valet parking with no hassle. The dealers at the table games are much more personable and kind then we have found in our many trips to Las Vegas. My wife loves to shop at "J's Boutique" located at the south end of the hotel in the lobby just next to the Starbucks. Julie Mitchell is the owner and a real kind and helpful person. The Craps Pit Boss, Greg McKay, is a real kind person to his entire staff as well as the customers. His personality, ease and helpfulness to all make a wonderful atmosphere at the table. This is an important thing for us as we do tend to stand at the craps tables for many hours on end when gambling. Hotel Location is wonderful. You can walk to the lake and most all the stores and restaurants in town. We highly recommend staying here. Read less

Tahoe has nice steakhouses tho a little on the high side price wise. The buffet is also very nice but with limited hours. The rooms and suites are a little beat up but they are working on that. Just ask for an updated room. Higher floors are obviously the best for a view. If you are looking to have a little extra help from a host good luck. Host… Read more
