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
We were there in 2018 at the end of June and through the Fourth of July. The hotel was very crowded due to the holiday, but other than on July 4th itself (on which the hotel has a big annual event), it never felt overly crowded.
The hotel and rooms are nice, as is the casino, and the private beach is wonderful. Lone Eagle Grille is absolutely delicious and totally worth splurging on one night, and the Sierra Cafe has an excellent breakfast buffet. The Regency Club is also nice.
One thing to point out in particular is Kelli Keefe, whose hospitality was wonderful. She really went out of her way and above the call of duty to help my family with something for our daughter, and she also did a great job of providing dining and activity suggestions in advance of our stay.
The rooms are fabulous, the elevator is fast and the staff is amazing! The only thing that would make this place better is if the food was included in the stay or available for a lower price point. Lovely Place!
Location and setting is outstanding. We stayed in a lower cottage room, with deck and nice green belt and peeking view of the lake. Some late night noise, one night, from neighbor room. Oh well.
We booked a Club level so our key was coded for access to the food area on 11th floor. Not the best selections but excellent supporting staff.
The really good stuff is at lake front, with nice beach area, floating bar, cabanas, food and excellent services.
Not many places have this environment, so enjoy your stay.
I look forward to returning home every summer. Lake Tahoe is a huge part of my trip so that my children can enjoy the mountain beauty I did throughout my life. Hyatt Incline Village is a top notch experience from the restaurants, the beach, the customer service, the rooms and overall ambiance. Thanks for everything during our stay!
I choose this hotel because of its location to the Lake Tahoe, 3 minute walk down the hill and you are on the beach. However, beyond that this facility is old and needs a serious remake or redo. The hotel dark and difficult see the interior. Floors and carpeting need cleaning or replacement. Additionally, bathroom is very small and needs a fresh coat of paint. However, the window seat is an excellent place to rest and read I spent several days just catching a snap. Of note was the size and clarity of the big screen TV very nice I just wished the rest of hotel was a modern as the televisions.
