Set on 26 acres that includes 500 feet of private beachfront, the Hyatt Regency Lake Tahoe Resort, Spa and Casino is the perfect spot for reveling in everything on offer in this stunning neck of the Sierra Nevadas. In summer guests lunch on the breezy, glass-shielded outdoor patio and watch the hotel’s 55-foot catamaran, the Sierra Cloud, as she comes and goes from the private dock. Come winter, free shuttles whisk skiers off to nearby powder meccas Northstar at Tahoe and Squaw Valley. If those resorts are too steep and deep for you, local gem Diamond Peak is perfect for beginners and just a two-minute ride down the road.
Bed & Bath
The resort is fresh off a $20 million renovation, and the work really shines in the 398 modern mountain-chic guestrooms. All are done in tan and taupe, with pops of blue and blond wood headboards and decor. Pillowtop beds are piled with soft pillows, and a windowseat peering out at the mountains that ring the lake keeps guests connected with the mountains. Marble bathrooms are spacious and have a rain shower and soaking tub.
No matter the time of year, the heated outdoor lagoon-style pool and hot tubs are a true treat, as is the exquisite (and eco-friendly) Stillwater Spa, which has 16 treatment rooms, including two couples rooms, one with a fireplace and the other with a jetted infinity tub. There’s also a state-of-the art fitness center and locker facilities with a dry cedar sauna and a eucalyptus steam room. Dinner at the resort’s Lone Eagle Grille is superb, drawing foodies from Reno and the local hamlets. Try the creamy French onion soup and grilled buffalo tenderloin paired with a Stags Leap Merlot. There’s an extensive wine list, including many from nearby Napa, and excellent craft beers on tap. Just save room for the Baked Tahoe, a brownie topped with ice cream and then wrapped in a gooey marshmallow mass.
How to Get There
I stayed at the Hyatt Lake Tahoe Resort for a business meeting. Very well run property, from the conference support staff, to front desk to the culinary team. The property has a mountain get-away design ambiance with modern updated features. My room was spacious and very comfortable, with an excellent lake view. The conference services and facilities were excellent. There are excellent food options in the hotel and within easy walking distance. The hotel is right on the lake with its own beachfront lake access. Health club is good, but I was hoping for a bit more space in a property this size. Overall, a great experience. All the Hyatt staff were responsive and very professional.
My daughter and here husband invited us to spend the weekend with them at the Hyatt Incline Village. They skied and we experineced the gondola ride and other attractions. Meals were great as we gathered with other friends and enjoyed the time together.
My wife and I brought our two young children here and had a blast. Our visit was in January so we were there for the snow rather than the lake. They had a free shuttle to Diamond Peak ski resort which was a super bonus. Parking is a little expensive as is the gift shop, but I guess you kind of expect this these days. Valet was $32 per night and self park was $22 per night so plan accordingly. One item of note that was pretty cool was that this place is dog friendly. If you don't like pets, no worries as it isn't overrun with dogs but there were some coming in and out. Great heated swimming pool and seperate kids and adult spas. There is something awesome about swimming with snow around the pool. There is also a fire pit where you can make smores at night. I have said enough. This place was pretty cool.
I had a very restful stay and was glad I could bring my pet with me. My only complaints were the checkin staff was a little aloof (I asked where I could park that wasn’t $18 a day and he responded only with “oh it’s $22 now.”) make sure you factor this cost AND the $37 daily resort fee into your travel costs, lest the shock and awe of your final bill do you in. I was rather disappointed that the cafe menu makes a big deal about using eco-friendly packaging and yet, not so much.
Its a perfect place and location for the family, only 5-10 mins to the ski resort, beginners family run is available in the area, so its perfect for first time skiers.
Ski and snow board rentals are available in the hotel lobby, I got the cabin, its a better choice rather the rooms in the hotel, more private for the small family.
