Few hotels can boast of a waterfront setting and access to some of the world's premiere skiing.
But then again, Harrah's and Harveys Lake Tahoe aren't your typical ski hotels. Set on the stunning shores of Lake Tahoe, these historic twin resort hotels are centrally located near all of Lake Tahoe's best ski resorts.
Besides access, skiers will love the in-room amenities. Harrah's has 512 rooms that are perfect to unwind in after an energetic day on the slopes, from soundproofed standard rooms replete with Wi-Fi and his and her bathrooms to luxurious suites equipped with rain shower heads, Venetian glass chandeliers and billiard tables. Over at Harveys the accommodations are equally extravagant. Featuring 742 elegantly appointed rooms in two hotel towers, guests can enjoy mountain or lake views, while suites include the perfect dose of apres-ski pampering: saunas, jacuzzis and private balconies.
With all the entertainment options, however, you and your family won't want to stay sequestered in your rooms for too long. Harrah's guests can start their evening by treating themselves to a massage or a dip in the Roman-style baths at Reflections Spa, while kids can check out the 12,000 square foot arcade. But that's just a warmup for the real gaming. From Harrah's 70,000 square-foot casino (home to over 1,3000 slot and video poker machines that payout $1 billion annually) to Harvey's 100 live-action tables, you can test your luck 24/7.
Does your inner James Bond need a rest? Take a break from Black Jack and head to Bud Friedman's famed Improv Comedy Club at Harveys or stay up way past your bedtime at Harrah's PEEK Nightclub. home to the area's best late-night dance party.
Of course you'll probably work up an appetite thanks to all the action. Fortunately there are more than enough tasty restaurants located in both hotels to satiate even the hungriest of skiers. Harrah's offers something for everyone, from popular comfort food establishments like Good Burger to pitch-perfect Cantonese dishes at Gi Fu Loh. Diners at Harveys can enjoy everything from short ribs to Chilean sea bass at 19 Kitchen and Bar, where panoramic lake views from the hotel's top floor are only surpassed by the cuisine. Or tuck into some south-of-the-boarder fare at Sammy Hagar's newly renovated Cabo Wabo Cantina.
