Spent three days here before the snow season for a meeting at their conference area. The staff at the check-in were friendly and introduced me to the rat maze in the underground parking area that I followed to our building. The hallways and rooms were very warm and homey looking with lots of wood trim. The room had a full kitchen, fireplace, two, flat screen TVs, separate bedroom, and a balcony that overlooked the businesses and walking lane below. As many have mentioned, the rooms were quite warm probably due to the hydroponic heating system. This kept the floors comfortably warm on bare feet, but left the rooms warmer than was usually comfortable. However, since temperatures were in the 30s to 60s we only had to open the balcony doors to get the temperature cooler.
The walking lane snaked its way from the checkin area, past several buildings, and to the Olympic Village tram that went to High Camp at 8000 feet. Various businesses lined the walking lane that catered to winter clothing and sports or sold beer, coffee, pizza, or meals. Unfortunately since this was off-season, during the week most of the food serving areas opened near noon and were closed in the evening so a number in our group drove to Tahoe City to find a meal of their liking. During the day the walking lane seemed nearly deserted. However, by Friday activity picked up markedly and on Saturday an afternoon Octoberfest celebration brought in the crowds. Of course some had to see if they could drink more than they did the last time they got drunk, but overall the crowds and oompah bands were festive. A few tried to hang around and stay festive until 2 in the morning. So any room that overlooked the walking lane would be bothered by the loud talk and yelling below. Fortunately, a brisk, cold wind came up and swept them away in a short time.
