First time at this amazing resort and we were lucky enough to be upgraded to one of the cottages by the lake - 283. I would recommend to stay away from the main building and pools if you want some peace and tranquility. Kids running amok can be upsetting for some, and there are plenty of them during the Summer months. Another low point is the restaurant Lone Eagle, stuffy and overpriced. Many better options around Incline Village and Tahoe City. Service is a hit or miss, but most of the staff is very helpful and kind. Shout out to Becca Allen for her incredible job with WOH Globalists. The property is beautiful, and Lake Tahoe is a destination like no other in the US. We will be back soon, for sure!
I stayed for a week in late Aug, and had to come back again soon, so visited again in Oct.Highly recommend October. Stayed in the double bed rooms attached to the lake cottages. (Jennifer H was great to work with on my Glob stay to reserve those. I have been staying here annually for the last 7 years. Incredible place. Sierra Cafe is great for coffee and room service. Brunch is tops. Very kid friendly and families (at least my experience in Aug) are the main guests here. Beach activities for kids is a nice touch (t shirt painting, etc).Pro Tip- The 2 elevators in the lobby can get backed up at times, but there is another down the hall and take your first right. Looking forward to visiting again in a couple of weeks!
Nice hotel, we had been told by a few people how nice it was. It was more than we usually spend but decided to give it a try since the couple we were traveling with wanted to try it. The grounds are nice like most of Tahoe, the hotel entry and people were all nice but the rooms were sub-par. We had much nicer rooms at the Marriott's at Stateline! Very disjointed in the room and bathrooms. At check out time we were told that there is a resort fee of $40 a day! Not a nice surprise especially with so much of the hotel shut down, to charge a resort fee on top of the high cost of the lousy room! No thank you!
. . . this was the most annoying. It's exorbitantly priced, that's understood. But you'd think they would let paying guests eat at the restaurant (the Lone Eagle Grille). We dropped in for lunch at 1 o'clock, sorry, no more slots available. ($27 for a hamburger.) We were directed to the beach snack bar, but sorry no tables or chairs. Just a chaise lounge, if you can get one. What about a dinner reservation, I asked? Nothing available before 9:30 PM. "We're booked days in advance." No maid service, change your own towels and take out your own trash. If you want a drinking glass or wine glass, call and ask for it. Yeah, I get that it's a pandemic, but the hotel's cost savings are definitely not being passed on to you. The small beach was packed. So was the pool, almost all by squealing children. One grandfather was playing water polo with his grandchild hurling balls the whole length of the pool, filled w/ people, but no lifeguard was there to impose order. If you're one of the proletarians staying in the first 3 floors, good luck finding the elevator bank to your room. The main bank off the lobby serves only Floor 4 and above. Otherwise, you have a wild goose chase around 2 corners and down a long corridor to find your lifts, which look like freight elevators. In addition to the price (we paid $460/nite, but lowest prices can exceed $700), you pay a $40 per night "resort fee" to be in the pool with Water Polo Gramps. Did I mention $22 self parking per day extra? (Have no idea how much more the valets w/ attitude command.) Entree prices at the Lone Eagle Grille were $45-$65. Thank heaven we were turned away; just across the street (Country Club Dr.) from the hotel, was a small strip mall with several restaurants including wonderful FumoTahoe, where we were seated immediately, full bar, lobster sliders, burgers (incl. the Impossible Burger) at less than half the price of the Grille. Hyatt Regency may be the "best" hotel in Lake Tahoe, but I'll think twice before staying here again. Eric…
