We finally arrived at this hotel after a 3.5 hour detour as the the I50 into Lake Tahoe from San Francisco was closed with no warning. At getting approximately 30 minutes to the hotel we were greeted by the local police to say the road was closed due to construction work! (May 2011). The detour was 3.5 hours along some frightening roads and at the point it went dark - if honest it was the most scariest road experience in my life!! Anyway..... we got to the hotel at 11pm... Check in was a breeze and after explaining to the check in desk about our issue they offered us a later check out - which was nice. We threw our stuff in the room and went straight down to the casino for a look, a gamble and a drink. We had a look, a gamble but could not get served for a drink - the waitress wanted ID - and wouldn't accept our british drivers licence - she wanted a passport - which I wasn't prepared to get - it was in our room and i was too tired. I couldn't see the point, they were fine for us to gamble where I believe the age is 21 but they wouldn't serve us a drink. Lol.
After our night in the casino we went back to our room and crashed out - we were shattered. I don't think my head hit the pillow and we both fell asleep. The bed was soooo comfy. In fact it was probably the comfiest bed I had ever slept in and it was huge!!
In the morning I was keen to see our view from the room - it was worth the wait. Beautiful!!
We had breakfast in the hotel - can't remember the name but it was on the top floor. It was a little on the pricey side for breakfast - it was a buffet. Great selection and fantastic views.
We didn't have internet in our room as we were only staying for the 1 night so I tried the business centre - $10 for 10 minutes but I desperately needed it to get some help to try and fix my SLR camera which was playing up :(..... I found a forum with some help so thought I'd print some pages out to read in the car whilst travelling to our next destination. i did not realise the cost per print before printing (per sheet) was $1.50 for b&w or $3 for colour - my printout was 14 pages - luckily I chose black and white! My bill was $31 and nothing in my printout helped to fix my camera :( Thought this was very expensive.
Price for the room was reasonable, nice rooms and would stay again.
I would recommend to anyone going to Lake Tahoe to arrive in the daylight - at night the drive especially if taking the I88 was frightening. The I50 was not so bad.
