Lake Tahoe, USA

Virgin rating

The hotel

As soon as you arrive, you’ll see the natural stone and soothing wood panelling, like a giant Alpine-style retreat. This one overlooks the picturesque Sierra mountain range and Lake Tahoe. You can even enjoy these views from the picture windows in your room which, handily, is soundproofed to make sure you get a good night’s sleep. You may need it after exploring Heavenly's trails. Plus there’s so much to do here, from gambling in the casino and taking in one of the shows, to dining in fabulous restaurants (or in the all-you-can-eat buffet if you’re really hungry!). If all that sounds far too strenuous by half, fear not. The spa treatments, steam room, heated pool and sauna are all perfect for relaxing.

While selecting a non smoking room, the room I got smelled of stale wet cigarettes. The mattress was so old I could feel the springs. And NO WHERE was it disclosed that parking was an addition $30 fee.

Both mornings I had no hot water. They never gave an explanation, never offered me another room, and never offered to reimburse me. Unacceptable. Oh, In addition, there is no “maid” service. This place needs to get its act together.

My husband and I were thrilled to be upgraded to an “executive“ room that was huge; it had a big bay window with lake view, a large sofa, and even two full bathrooms! The room was amazing!

Wonderful weekend at Harrah’s Lake Tahoe! I would have given 5 stars instead of 4 if the spa at Harrah’s wasn’t such a disappointment! We have stayed here before and really enjoyed the spa!

Wonderful weekend at Harrah’s Lake Tahoe! I would have given 5 stars instead of 4 if the spa at Harrah’s wasn’t such a disappointment! We have stayed here before and really enjoyed the spa! This time the service in the spa was nonexistent and the treatment was mediocre at best! Very disappointed! I will never book another spa treatment at Harrah’s Lake Tahoe! They charge you double or triple the price you would pay anywhere else and the value for the money is not there! The steakhouse was excellent as always! The room was excellent as always! So sad that the spa staff have failed them so miserably! Read less
