“Absolutely wonderful”
Reviewed November 9, 2008

My husband and I stayed 5 nights in a one bedroom suite and we had a wonderful time. The hotel staff is extremely helpful and polite. The only choice to park the car is their valet parking which costs $19 per night but they do give great service to get the car in and out of the garage. We went the first week of November and it is their very slow season and of course the hotel was kind of empty, wonderfully quite.
It has an amazing location, the gondola is next to the hotel and the hotel is right in the middle of Heavenly Village which has all kinds of stores and restaurants, even a full size supermarket. The bed and the entire apartment was extremely good. I highly recommend it.

An excellent choice as as a self catering residence as there is no on site restaurant or breakfast facility.

The room was actually a double room with one entrance to the sleeping area and the other entrance door was to the lounge/ kitchen/ Diner area. The whole appartment was tastefully decorated with good quality furnishing and modern efficient kitchen appliances. The two rooms had an interconnecting door and could be rented as sleeping room only or with the kitchen diner room.

There is a good cafe next door so if you do not wish to prepare your own breakfast you can walk outside for a good breakfast.

Of an evening , there are a few choices of where to eat, but if you are looking for a special meal you may wish to walk to a place called Lewmarnels. This is a bit off of the main road but worth a visit. They do have some very expensive wines on the menu and the wine waiter said they seldom sell them but the house wines are good quality at a fair price. Food is great too !

The property is clean, well run with helpfull staff and once you have worked out the locations of all of the ways to get in and out of the property then you really can feel at home there.

The Marriott's Grand Residence Inn is a comfortable, nicely furnished and appointed facility, from the lobbies to the villas. Immaculate best describes their attention to keeping up appearances. Every staff person greeted us with smiles and kind words during our three day visit. The security is outstanding, no worries there. No hitch in any aspect of check-in. Everything was as promised.

Had we been 30 years younger, it would have been far easier for us. It is a very large facility. Had I been wiser I would have requested a room close to an elevator. I regretted having left no trail of bread crumbs behind when we finally arrived at our villa. A well-founded concern when we left to go seek a meal, and all but made a career out of finding our way back. Younger legs would have not noticed, but I bring my trusty cane with me now, and I was glad to have it. My hubby has reached an age of 'easy confusion' and he took the faciility map given us at the front desk when he went out to "stretch his legs" and bring back a goodie or two. I marked the various entrances to the complex, the elevator to get on, and even put a small easily removed Hallmark sticker on the door to make sure he found me again.

The location is excellent and close to most anything one might be seeking in South Lake Tahoe.

It was abundantly supplied with kitchen/cooking gear, but we didn't make much use of that. The elevation was a bit taxing for me; if you have breathing issues, you might want to check further to be sure. So, go and have fun. Don't wait until your 70's and 80's to do it, but if you do, I promise you will STILL have a great time.

We stayed at the Grand Residence Club for five nights in October 08. The best thing about the hotel was the size and price of the hotel. We are Marriott members and got a great rate on a 1 bed/2 bath room. It had a full kitchen, big living area and two fireplaces. The room was clean and everything seemed to be very new in the room. Underneath the hotel are numerous shops and restaurants. We ate the nearby driftwood cafe for breakfast each morning. There is also a cinema complex within a minute walk. The Heavenly gondola is beside this hotel also. There is a huge food market across the road from the hotel if you want to cook in the full kitchen. The casinos are also a short walk down the road.

Way below par! I've stayed at Marriott's various different hotels throughout the US. Other than location, this one has nothing other than the high fees for various services. A brief list:

1) The bed (something Marriott generally prides them selves on), was the worst bed I've ever slept on. This was NOT the Marriott standard; but, something more in line with what I would expect from Motel6!

2) Broken and non-working fixtures. Items such as a light (which may of actually been dangerous) didn't work and had loose electrical parts. The fireplace wasn't even connected properly and was not functional. Fan in the bathroom failed.

3) Poor construction - Don't try to close the door on the closet, as your clothes DON'T fit. Wow, I've never seen anything like this; but, the hangers hang out of the door! Just Weird!

4) Unprepared - Despite having a reservation for 4 (2 kids), the sofa bed had no sheets ready. 20 minutes after a call, we finally received low end polyester-cotton (50/50) blend sheets and poly blankets.

Other than being located at the Heavenly lift, I see nothing good about this hotel. Next time I'll try the *real* Marriott, as this is a big waste of money, time and travel!

This was the second time we stayed at the Grand. This time we stayed in a 1 bedroom suite. The Grand is at the tail end of a rennovation and everything is new looking again. The fabrics are very nice and reflect the lodginess of the area.We were not bothered by any noise associated with the rennovation though the web site did carry a warning when we made our reservations.

Before reserving this or other any South Lake Tahoe lodging look closely because not very many of them have the typical luxury hotel services like room service or on site restaurants. The Grand is actually an ownership property much like a condo and is not a hotel. But unlike hotels, it has kitchen facilities.

Our unit was spacious and quiet on the 5th floor facing the main road. We heard no street sounds and the bed was fantastic. All the staff was very friendly and helpful. The valets were always looking for ways to help us though we had no questions for them. We thought about using the city parking garage which is very nearby, but convenience always got the best of us and we opted for the $19 per night valet. The city garage is $23 per day but no in & out.

We went down Park Ave to the private beach every afternoon to enjoy the sunset. It seems like it would be a great beach in the summer for families plus there is a beachside grill that is open in the summer. On the way to the beach we passed Paradice, Secrets, Station House and 3 Season Inn. All of these are motor lodges and not in the same league as the Grand so it is very odd that they would rate so much further above the Grand. I guess there is something for everyone in South Lake Tahoe.

  • Liked — THe bed was very comfortable and so were the pillows.

We stayed for 3 days. There is only one restaurant (Mongolian barbeque theme) on the property and it is open for lunch and dinner. Morning coffe in the lobby is $3/cup. Plan to walk for breakfast. There are numerous nearby restaurants, shopping and casinos.

The beds in the rooms are dreamy. Otherwise, the rooms are ordinary.

There is a great gym facility with over 20 stations in addition to free weights. A shower facility is also available.

There is valet parking only on premises although Marriott also operates the nearby parking garage. The valet service is extremely friendly and efficient. Parking is $19/day.

The property fronts on US highway 50 so traffic is heavy and noisy during the day; no problem at night.
