My husband and I stumbled upon this hotel out of sheer luck, after enjoying a delicious breakfast at their lakeside restaurant, Jimmy's! We were having a not-so-great experience around the corner, at The Hard Rock Hotel, where our room was shabby and boiling hot, as they don't allow you to control your own thermostat! After chatting with one of the restaurant's very friendly hostesses, we inquired about a room there for the following night, (my actual Bday). I'm so glad we did, because it completely turned our weekend around! This hotel is so close to all of the South Lake casino action, but has the most beautiful, tranquil views, beach access, amazing food, cozy fireplaces, rain shower, heated floors and seat in the gorgeous marble bathroom, and spacious balconies! My Birthday weekend went from trashy casino, to romantic, fireside getaway, in an instant! The valet and front desk staff greeted us with champagne at check in and sent a complimentary bottle of champagne to the room for my Birthday! I could have stayed in that room, in front of the cozy fireplace, gazing out at the lake all day! What's more, they have a great happy hour, and incredibly talented house musician in the evenings. He plays a mean blues guitar, which is right up my alley! My hubby and I really enjoyed the Eggs Benedict and Bacon Waffle in the morning and the Beef Sliders on Pretzel Buns during Happy Hour. I was given a complimentary Birthday Mimosa and the Feta and Dill Biscuit underneath my Benedict was truly something special! I'm gonna say it's a must have whenever visiting Lake Tahoe! Our happy hour bartender happened to be from our hometown of San Jose, and was truly a delight! She made me a pretty, sugar-rimmed, strawberry champagne drink for my birthday and it really made me feel special! Despite all of The Landing's charm and beauty, the cherry on top here is really the staff! Of course, I expect those in the hospitality business to have good customer service, but The Landing Hotel staff goes above and beyond! From the valet/bellhops, front desk, to the bar and restaurant staff, and even housekeeping; everyone was amazing! You can tell they are truly happy working there! The hotel also has an on-site day spa and hotel shuttle, which takes you to the casinos, or anywhere within a 1-2 mile radius. We didn't take advantage of these last two amenities, but we definitely plan to next time! I honestly don't see how we could ever stay anywhere else in South Lake again! Talk about spoiled for life! :)
